Ubisoft has officially pulled the veil off their next adventure, taking players to the Viking Age in Assassin's Creed Valhalla. The trailer released this morning shows quite a bit, from scenes of playful, idyllic Norsemen at home to the wars that raged between the English kingdoms and the Vikings.

    AC makes some of the best worlds to explore, even if gameplay is similar. I will definitely be picking this up, huge plus that its a Viking Setting before England was established.

    Looks good. Doesn't look like an AC game, but neither did Odyssey and I loved that.

    Setting it in Britain and not having it be about Scots raiding the Romans at Hadrian's wall is a real normie move. Vikings are about as tired a pop culture convention as Zombies were 5-10 years ago.

    Bullshit. There's no way that giant British dude would still be walking after a sword through the knee.

    Also he's going to be hobbling around some village talking about how he used to be an adventurer. lol

    LOVE the music and the video though.

    Might be tired for you but for me it's the Christmas game that I've always wanted.

    If it's half as good as Odyssey it will be amazing.

    I should add, my friends and I were to hike Hadrian's wall in June but the trip got postponed.

    My guess is that it will be in alignment to other Assassin's creed games "more or less."

    I tried the first one (didn't finish it) but then wayyyy after I tried Odyssey and really liked it. Still haven't finished but that's more about time.

    I would expect to be about the same as Odyssey or Origins but with Vikings and a pruny face king guy.

    Yeah i really really enjoyed Odyssey. If its like that but with better graphics then I will definitely buy it at release. But I do wanna see an upgrade though or maybe optimization of some kind so I can run it at higher FPS at least at 1440p. I'm sure it'll have some kinda factional system like Odyssey had i.e. between England and Norway*, like they last game had Sparta vs Athens kinda setup. That was very fun.

    I can't even remember which was the last AC I played but it was on the PS3 years ago.

    Steam has both Origins and Odyssey on sale right now. Should I play Origins before Odyssey or does it matter?

    Does not matter the two are completely different settings and don't tie into each other.

    If anything, Odyssey makes some improvements on mechanics, but is a bit more grindy (my biggest gripe with Ubi... stop the cash shop progression speed up stupidity).

    Combat is completely different than previous AC titles. Both AC:O's have you playing warrior/assassins instead of mostly pure sneaky types. Blackflag was a sort of half-step, combat-wise in that direction. I like the combat much more in the new installments, but some people prefer the previous styles.

    Both Greece and Egypt as the historical settings are absolutely fabulous and you can see the love the world-builders put into both games. I liked Origin more for the setting, and Odyssey for the improved combat but they're both beautiful and interesting to explore.

    This year, with quarantine going on I am playing the AC games for the first time. Just started 1. Only good thing about quarantine I have a lot of time for games. Got myself a Playstation 1 and replaying games that I used to love as a kid. Also playing games I never got a chance too. Beat Chrono Trigger for the first time last night.

    I love games built around this era but I’ve never been a fan of any of the Assasins Creed games... maybe this one will change my mind.

    The last two are apparently very different from the previous ones - more Witcher than AC.

    I tried Witcher 2.  Bought it for peanuts during a Christmas sale.  Was not impressed.  Seemed like just some kind of interactive movie.  Darkest Dungeon is way better.  Even though it's a repetitive grindfest.  I like that I have to suffer for all my mistakes and poor decisions.  And that even my favorite characters can end up dead as a door nail.

    It would be better if games like Warhammer Total Warhammer just autosaved and didn't allow you to go back and try to fix your mistakes.  IMHO.  I wasted so much time doing that.  Or just starting over.

    However, I kinda feel like the Chaos Invasion starts too soon.  Though I guess there is a Mod that allows you to delay it a bit.  Next time I play, I'm gonna play the Dwarves.  Usually played Empire.

    As far as I know, each game starts in the present where you are some descendant of some assassin and you enter you ancestor's memories in order to unveil some mystery. That really killed the immersion for me when I played the first one that felt a bit like a realistic, historically accurate Prince of Persia and since then every setting they chose for their games has been unappealing except for the pirate one.

    This one just as unappealing to me as I find Vikings in game to be really banal and annoying, especially portrayed as the most epic and awesome bastards just to sell copies to edgy kids. I would have preferred if they made more PoP games instead. AC just feels more of the same to me, especially when I'm not a fan, they all feel like copies of copies of copies.

    Origins is still very much an adventure game similar to its predecessor Syndicate, minus the return of the modern player character (AC 4 to Syndicate didn't have one), less "animus" interference and the game being set pre-Assassins so you don't play as one exactly. There is no dialogues choices.

    Odyssey is a RPG-lite with romances, exploration dialogues and branching choices. The rest is quite similar to Origins though.

    Valhalla follows in Odyssey's footsteps.
  • RexKushmanRexKushman Member RarePosts: 596
    I just wish they would do away completely with the animus and forward time jumps. Its really a drag on the last few games and is just out of place now.

  • PyukPyuk Member UncommonPosts: 762
    Good to see Ragnar Lothbrok is back at it on Vikings.

    Really looking forward to this one.

    I make spreadsheets at work - I don't want to make them for the games I play.
