• Hands-On: Assassin's Creed Valhalla will test your mettle

    28 days ago - By PlayStation

    With every installment of the history-hopping Assassin's Creed series, there's a moment that I long for. Meeting some famed historical figure; perfectly timing an assassination from the shadows; crawling to the top of an architectural wonder to make an iconic leap of faith. The moment always inspires awe, and centers my experience in whatever time or narrative the series has found itself in.
    During my three hour demo with Assassin's Creed Valhalla, that moment came at the end of a bloody raid, where my Viking hero Eivor triumphantly climbed atop a besieged monastery to blow a massive war...

    Assassin's Creed Valhalla Launches On November 17

    28 days ago - By Game Informer

    During Ubisoft's recent Forward event, the publisher announced that Assassin's Creed Valhalla is set for release on November 17. This places Ubisoft's massive open-world title out the same week as CD Projekt Red's Cyberpunk 2077 , and gives some credence to the theory that one or more of the new consoles could release around that time.
    Valhalla is set in 873 and places you into the role of a young Viking raider named Eivor who leads a Viking party looking to settle in Anglo-Saxon England. You can get a look at the gameplay below.

    Assassin's Creed Valhalla - Boss Fights, Longships, and More Revealed in New Walkthrough

    28 days ago - By Gaming Bolt

    Ubisoft finally announced a release date for Assassin's Creed Valhalla , at least for current-gen consoles. We also got a brief overview of the open world title, though a more comprehensive gameplay walkthrough is now available. Though similar to last week's leaked footage, there's actually quite a bit that's new here.
    We start off with an assault and boss fight with Rued, which leads to Eivor rescuing her comrade and choosing to spare the foe. This segues into a raid on King's Bury and exploring the large open world. Environmental puzzles, strangers and other interesting sights await.

    Assassin's Creed Valhalla preview - more Geralt than Altair

    28 days ago - By VG 247

    The first thing that strikes me when I load into Assassin's Creed Valhalla's England is how natural and rugged it is. Forests, marshland, and rolling hills blanket the landscape. There's barely a viewpoint in sight. I'm free to explore East Anglia in full , including Northwick, the most built-up town in the region. But even this is just a town hall, a few buildings and a church. What will one day become London sits far to the south, inaccessible to me during the demo - not even in range of my raven companion, who I can control in free flight. This region features three or four viewpoints...

You can also dual-wield various weapons and customize your attack style (right down to charging someone with two shields).
