Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Release
November 10th marked the release of a new action adventure game from the Assassin’s Creed series, developed by Ubisoft Montreal. Each game in this series, enjoyed by players for over 13 years now, is set in the midst of an important historical event – from the Third Crusade (Assassin’s Creed: Altaïr’s Chronicles) to the French Revolution (Assassin’s Creed Unity).
The next game in the series, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, transports the player to 9th-century England and the Viking conquests. At Logrus IT we had a blast getting to know the game and working on its localization.
In Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, you play as Eivor, a warrior who left the icy shores of Norway with his kin to find a new home in the fertile fields of England. But Alfred the Great, King of Wessex, and the leaders of other Anglo-Saxon kingdoms, want to stop you. Meanwhile, in the 21st century, the story of Layla Hassan continues.
As in the other games, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is set in an open, highly-detailed world. Players need to build their own settlement and take part in large-scale raids like this series has never seen before.
The combat system has also been upgraded. Now you can move the hidden blade from your wrist to the outside of your arm, or even dual wield (either two weapons or weapon and shield). As for the graphics, they have incorporated an updated version of the engine used in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey.
The game will be released on November 10th for Windows, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will be released for the new generation of consoles — PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X — at a later date.
