Ubisoft’s been on a roll with Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. The first look cinematic reveal trailer was dropped just last week by the French company. Today as part of the Inside Xbox program Ubisoft unveiled the gameplay trailer of the upcoming title in the Assassin’s Creed franchise.
The trailer itself boasts impressive visuals all around with breathtaking sceneries quite home to the franchise itself. Moreover, with the way they’ve approached this part, it seems that Assassin’s Creed will, in fact, be going back to its roots. The hidden blade is back and so are many of the classic features.
Impressive visuals and storylines are what ties Assassin’s Creed in this beautiful tapestry which fans are so fond of. The revealed footage shows us a sneak peek of what we should expect from the upcoming game. With Eivor taking over the uncharted lands of England, vast open fields. Teasing iconic locations like Stonehenge, Northern Lights and much more.
Assassin’s Creed has been Ubisoft’s baby these recent times. Yet the way how their previous instalments in the franchises have come out fans have been deprived of what the franchise once stood for. With a genre shift to RPG from the time of Assassin’s Creed Origins, the developers haven’t been able to redeem themselves completely.
However, things definitely look different this time. One might argue the fact that they’ve always had creative into their games and that Ubisoft was never shy of experimenting with their views and content. Yet it has always left fans of the original series disappointed at the very least. This time around bringing back the classic Assassin’s Creed factor to the core of Valhalla’s gameplay may perhaps be a game-changer.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is set to release Holidays this year on the Xbox Series X, Xbox One, PC, PS5 & PS4. Apart from that, the game would also act as a benchmark to actually show how much of a difference takes place between these two generations.
