Ubisoft announced last week the next installment of its famous license : Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. This time, exit the arid lands of Assassin’s Creed Origins and Assassin’s Creed Odyssey with a plot set among the Vikings. The promise to explore a new part of assassin mythology and an expected RPG orientation, like the two previous episodes, with a skill tree, an open world, choices that influence history. And this is exactly the story Darby McDevitt came back to, narrative director of this Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.
The man explained on his Twitter that the story will be hot, regardless of the gender chosen by the player at the start of the game.
A choice that eliminates the blunder of Assassin's Creed Odyssey in which only the female character was canon.
In Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, Ubisoft left the choice of gender to the hero for the first time. However, only Kassandra was hot.
His male alter ego, Alexios, was relegated to the background with a scenario justification provided by a DLC. Many players therefore did not have access to the true story by choosing the male hero.. A bug now fixed with Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, as its narrative director explains on Twitter.
Both characters will be hot, but we are not going to spoil you on how we got there until you play the game.
Darby McDevitt therefore remains very discreet on the script of this new episode, whose synopsis can be found on the Ubisoft website :
Play as Eivor, Viking whose education was based on combat, and lead your clan from the frigid and desolate lands of Norway to the lush green of ninth century England. Found a colony of your people there and conquer hostile territories to earn your place in Valhalla.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will be released late 2020, no specific date, on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X et Stadia. A first cross-gen game for the studio and the possibility to play it in streaming on the Google platform.
Both choices are canon, but we’re not going to spoil how we managed that trick until you play the game. 😎
