Assassin's Creed Valhalla

The first trailer is online for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, bringing the popular game franchise back to the Viking age. Ubisoft released the first cinematic trailer for the game, which you can check out below.

The trailer presents Vikings as violent, heartless killers as narrated by King Alfred the Great of the Anglo-Saxons narrates them to be, but with flashes that show they’re far from his version of them. As a group of Viking ships makes landfall in the night, flaming arrows fall from the sky in a wave and a vicious, Game of Thrones-level battle is joined. One man, Eivor, fights for the Vikings and sees a cloaked man on the battlefield as well as an raven, then turns to face a massive foe. Just when things look bleack, a familiar weapon comes into play and the tables turn.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is set to release during the 2020 holiday season for Xbox One, Playstation 4, PC and Stadia.
