Assassins Creed Valhalla 2020: We finally got the first glimpse of the new Assassin’s Creed on Thursday. For a long time, it was already thought that the game would have a Viking setting and that with the subtitle Ragnarok. Now it is more than clear that the setting has been correct all along, but the official title is Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla. Fine, although of course, the surprise was not very big.
Assassins Creed Valhalla 2020
By the way, the trailer Ubisoft showed was very impressive. In fact, it has quite a few features from the hit TV series Vikings, which has been featured on Netflix for some time. In addition, God of War moved north and the sequel to Hellblade also has Norse mythology as a background. So we can say that mythology is the new zombies because it keeps coming back.
That the surprise was not big, was mainly due to the many leaks around the game leading up to this announcement. Nevertheless, the catch-up to the new ‘hype’ around Vikings is excellent in terms of timing, because it is something that is currently keeping people busy. It is also completely different from previous games in the franchise because now we are going into cold areas. And the Vikings were a different battle people than the colonists in America, the Italians during the Roman Empire and the Greeks / Egyptians many years before.
The history of the Vikings, especially around the robberies in England, is much more recent than the previous two Assassin’s Creed games. That means new possibilities for the franchise and gameplay. In addition, nature in Scandinavia is a world of difference compared to the deserts and Mediterranean environments in the south. So it could feel like refreshment in everything.

The franchise has also been away for a year and Ubisoft has realized with Ghost Recon: Breakpoint that they have to adjust the development of games and the content. Some loved Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey, but if you look a little more critically the title can even be called uninspired in the worst case. It was very similar to Origins, threw the concept of ‘assassin’ even further overboard and was structurally repetitive.

With a new approach, a ‘more recent’ history and of course an area where the franchise has not yet been, Ubisoft can start from scratch. More variation in the gameplay, new locations, new characters, new gameplay mechanics … one can go in any direction and that creates high expectations. This also means that in our opinion this set is the right one. But of course, this is Your opinion, so you may think differently.

There have been subtle teasers to Asia in the franchise for many years. The community has been asking for it for centuries, but more and more games revolve around Vikings. Maybe that’s why it’s not such a good choice and Ubisoft should have chosen another setting – so Asia. Also because they now very clearly go through all important historical periods, which may seem a bit easy.
In addition, you may have the fear of not really being an assassin again, given that it is apparently difficult to rhyme with a Viking who is already very violent by nature. After all, Vikings and subtlety don’t really seem like the best combination. Well, it can go in any direction, so we are very much curious about your opinion and you can put it down below in the comment section!
