Ubisoft reveals Assassin's Creed Valhalla's release date and 35 minutes of gameplay

Assassin's Creed Valhalla is due to release on PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Stadia on November 17th, with PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X versions coming at a later date. 

At Ubisoft Forward, the publisher released a 30-minute gameplay walkthrough of Assassin's Creed Valhalla alongside a shorter 5-minute gameplay overview. Both of these showcases featured developer commentary and revealed a lot about the upcoming game. 

One of the main improvements to Assassin's Creed Valhalla over its predecessors is game's revamped combat system, which is designed to add more depth and variety to the game. Players will be able to utilise a wide range of weapons types and combat styles, including a dual-shield fighting style, which is shown on the gameplay overview below. 
   


When travelling across England, players can move with a group of Viking warriors via longboat, docking their boat on seemingly any riverside to conduct raids. You can even have a cat in your longboat if you wanted to add a little feeling spark to your Viking journey. 

Assassin's Creed Valhalla will also see stealth become a larger element for the series, an aspect of the franchise which was sidelined after the release of Assassin's Creed Origins. Like Altair, Eivor will be able to blend in with local environments, bringing a little more of the Assassin back into Assassin's Creed.

It somehow looks worse than Origins and Odyssey.

But at least they're honoring us with the possibility of paying $120 for the privilege of playing the "ultimate edition", which also still includes in-game microtransactions, thank Christ. I don't know what I'd do if my $120 single player experience didn't have in-game microtransactions. I don't even care about performance and optimization. Just let me spend that cash on those sweet, sweet microtransactions. And I really hope they'll incentivise me to spend by making the game grindy as f***.Quote

1 of the main reasons I was looking forward to this is that the composer from the series "Vikings" is doing the music for this but the gameplay looks pretty meh, Just Odyssey with a different theme.Quote

Idk man the combat is definitely far more gory and has at least 10x the amount of animations going on.

The was one of two drawbacks to Odyssey for me. Combat animations were low and made combat repetitive.
Other was conquest battles were cool in theory but made it a one man army "kill x to win". They seemed to have fixed that.

Other than that if it's as good as Odyssey, plot/story/pace/etc, this is an easy 10/10 for me.Quote

Prince of Persia original trilogy had proper, amazing, beautiful, and challenging gameplay. Getting a new sword, and learning combos. It was pure. And you could fail hard.

Then Assassin's Creed came out and I was disappointed to the bone. What? You can run, and jump by holding one fcking button, and that is it? You just mash one button and he does the fighting alone? Wtf? A blatant copy made for retarded kids. And somehow they have managed to dumb it down more... How?

Fck Vikings I am going to install Prince of Persia Warrior Within and enjoy one of the best games ever made. Dahaka here I come.Quote

It never ceases to amaze me with AC games how such mediocre looking visuals can require such high system requirements at max settings...


I bought AC Odyssey a while back and on max settings it looked really,really average but my RTX 2080 was on its knees.Quote
