Ubisoft has revealed additional information about their upcoming open-world RPG Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC holiday 2020.
The developer has announced that players will be able to choose between a male or female Eivor, the protagonist of the story. After their choice, they’ll also be able to customize aspects of the character’s appearance. Features such as hair, tattoos, clothing, war paint, and gear will all be chosen by the player. Furthermore, their personality will also be altered through player choice, which affects their political alliances and combat decisions as well.
“We can’t wait for players to experience the incredible Viking journey ahead of them,” said Ashraf Ismail, Creative Director of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. “Being in Eivor’s boots as both a Viking raider and a clan leader, players will face the conflicts of establishing a new home in the midst of a power struggle for control of England.”
Eivor’s clan has been driven by the endless wars and now it is their turn to stand up and fight. Players will build a Viking clan and fight against England’s armies. The combat system has been updated to feature the ability to dual-wield weapons and players will be able to craft new resources from materials earned through fighting and exploration.
There will be several editions available:
- The Gold Edition will include the base game and the Season Pass.
- The Ultimate Edition will include the base game, the Season Pass and the Ultimate Pack, giving players access to exclusive customization content: the Berserker Gear Pack, the Berserker Settlement Pack and the Berserker Longship Pack, along with a Set of Runes to improve weapons or gear.
- The Collector’s Edition will include the base game, the Season Pass, the Ultimate Pack, a high-end Ubicollectibles replica of Eivor and her longship (30 cm high), a Collector’s Case, a SteelBook with unique artwork, a numbered certificate of authenticity, a Viking Statuette of Eivor with his raven and Dane axe (5 cm high), exclusive lithographs as well as a selected soundtrack of the game. The Collector’s Edition is available exclusively from the Ubisoft Store.
