Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Story Trailer Released
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla hits shelves November 10th on a slew of platforms including next-gen, and Ubisoft is ramped up the hype levels today with a story trailer.
The trailer introduces the backstory to Valhalla as well as teasing exactly how the Assassins figure into this Viking tale… I can’t wait to dive into the game’s combat, and I hope it’s as fleshed-out as the last few games have been.
Taking a break and revamping the game for Assassin’s Creed: Origins couldn’t have been an easy decision to make but it’s certainly proved effective. The game has hit all-new levels of immersion and interaction, with engaging combat and a progression system that keeps players coming back.
Couple that with Ubisoft’s now-trademark ongoing support for their games and it makes Assassin’s Creed Valhalla an easy recommendation for those picking up next-gen systems this November.
Here’s the press release:
