Dimapur, Sept. 30 (EMN): Ubisoft has just dropped a new trailer for their upcoming game, Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla. The newest game from the Assassin’s Creed franchise will let players play as Eivor, a mighty Viking raider who leads his clan from the harsh shores of Norway to a new home amid the lush farmlands of ninth-century England.

The story trailer dives deep into the legacy that is Eivor and his relationship with his brother Sigurd. In the trailer Eivor is described as an “orphan and sibling, warrior and poet.”

Sigurd wants to leave Norway in search of a new home in England. This ultimately means that the Viking brothers will have to confront the “Saxon kings and the warmongering sons of Ragnar Lothbrok,” once they reach the shores of England.

There is also a mention about “a mysterious, growing threat to England’s destiny” which may be a reference to the Assassin’s league.

About the game

Become Eivor, a mighty Viking raider and lead your clan from the harsh shores of Norway to a new home amid the lush farmlands of ninth-century England. Explore a beautiful, mysterious open world where you’ll face brutal enemies, raid fortresses, build your clan’s new settlement, and forge alliances to win glory and earn a place in Valhalla.
England in the age of the Vikings is a fractured nation of petty lords and warring kingdoms. Beneath the chaos lies a rich and untamed land waiting for a new conqueror. Will it be you?

LEAD EPIC RAIDS
Lead your people in massive assaults against Saxon armies and fortresses, and expand your influence far beyond your settlement’s borders. Command a crew of raiders and launch lightning-fast surprise attacks from your longship to claim your enemies’ riches for your clan.

VISCERAL COMBAT
Unleash the ruthless fighting style of a Viking warrior and dual-wield axes, swords, or even shields against fierce, relentless foes. Choose your tactics and dismember opponents in close-quarters combat, riddle them with arrows, or assassinate them with your hidden blade.

WRITE YOUR VIKING SAGA
The advanced RPG mechanics of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla give you new ways to grow as a warrior and a leader. Influence the world around you while acquiring new skills and gear to suit your playstyle. Blaze your own path across England by fighting brutal battles and leading fiery raids, or form strategic alliances and triumph by your wits. Every choice you make in combat and conversation is another step on the path to greatness.

GROW YOUR SETTLEMENT
Grow and customize your own settlement by recruiting new clan members and building upgradable structures. Get better troops by constructing a barracks, improve your weapons at the blacksmith, discover new customization options with a tattoo parlour, and much more.

SHARE YOUR CUSTOM RAIDER
Create and customize your own mercenary Vikings to share online, and reap the spoils when they fight alongside your friends in their own sagas. Recruit mercenaries created by other players, and add their strength to your forces.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s release date is on November 10 for PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X, Xbox One and PC via Uplay and the Epic Games Store. It will be released on the PlayStation 5 on November 12.
