As we inch closer to the launch of the next generation, Ubisoft is slowly trickling more information about the Assassin’s Creed Valhalla story, and today they have shared with us a nice story trailer which better explains Eivor’s reasons for migrating from Norway to England.
In the new Assassin’s Creed Valhalla story trailer we see Eivor visiting various communities in Norway before venturing to the isles to find a new hope for his people. We have learnt that the map of England will be about the same size as Assassin’s Creed Origins, and that it will not include Cornwall, Wales, and most of Northumbria (so that means no Scotland and Ireland for those keeping count). It is also a condensed version of England, though that’s not to say there won’t be plenty of sights to see.
We’re still uncertain as to how big the Norway map will be too, and whether there will be free-roam across the North Sea, though we have seen gameplay footage of sailing.
Watch the new Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Story Trailer below:
Become Eivor, a fierce Viking raider torn between their duty to their brother Sigurd and a personal quest for glory. Driven from Norway by endless wars and dwindling resources, Eivor’s clan must secure a future among the broken kingdoms of England. During their journey, Eivor will face powerful figures including Saxon kings and the warmongering sons of Ragnar Lothbrok, as well as a mysterious, growing threat to England’s destiny.
Alongside the story trailer, Ubisoft has begun a podcast called Echoes of Valhalla which is an episodic historical documentary on Spotify that will guide you through everything you need to know about what it was like to be a 9th century viking.
