'Assassin's Creed Valhalla' trailer is filled with viking glory

And you can find the trailer on Ubisoft's YouTube channel, or on this very page down below.

It looks like an epic new direction for Assassin's Creed, and while the trailer doesn't show any gameplay footage, Ubisoft revealed the game willcombine combat missions with a political narrative in an open world setting. Eivor will lead his or her clan to build a new home in England as his clan will raid, conquer, and fight for glory. But resistance from the Saxons won't exactly make it easy.

Assassin's Creed Valhalla is the latest game to leverage the service after CD Projekt Red confirmed earlier this year that Cyberpunk 2077 will also be taking part in it.

While nearly certainly composed, rather than taken during regular gameplay, they give a sense of what the first next-generation Assassin's Creed game will look like. For now, we've dug up everything you need to know about the new game when it comes to preorder bonuses, the Ultimate Edition, alongside collectable replicas and statues.

When can I play it? The current release window is Holiday 2020, which usually means any time from October to December. Once you have it for the Xbox One, you're entitled to also get a copy for the Xbox Series X without paying a cent.

Regardless, it will remain to be seen if Assassin's Creed Valhalla will remain exclusive.

The news came two days after Kloots suggested she was unsure her husband would ever be able to walk again due to "blood flow issues" in his leg.

Preorders for the game are now live, on Xbox One and PS4. Sometime between eight and 11th century, meaning just before the events of the first Assassin's Creed.

This version of AC Valhalla includes the game itself as well as the Season Pass. The Collector's Edition is available exclusively from the Ubisoft Store.

Through Assassin's Creed Valhalla, players will be granted the option to customize Eivor with things like a beard, tattoos, and war paint.

Bloodier than ever Assassin's Creed Valhalla looks considerably more brutal than previous entries in the series, with the trailer depicting bloody massacres on English soil.

It's your own Viking village you'll see prosper and grow, and which your clan mates will live in.

It appears that the new game will focus upon a single male protagonist named Eivor, a Viking warrior armed with an axe and a not-so-hidden blade that marks him out as a member of the assassin order.
