Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is a coming action role-playing video game developed by Ubisoft Montreal and published by Ubisoft. It’s the twelfth major installment along with the twenty-second launch in the Assassin’s Creed collection, and a successor to the 2018 match Assassin’s Creed Odyssey.
Valhalla is intended for launch in late 2020 It will also be the first Assassin’s Creed title for its next-generation of consoles, the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.
ASSASSIN’S CREED VALHALLA
Ismail stated that Valhalla represents Ubisoft’s”flagship” match for these next-generation systems, and has been created to take advantage of faster loading times both new consoles offer Xbox versions of the game will support Microsoft’s”Smart Delivery” program, which enables the player to purchase just 1 copy of the game that will work on either the Xbox One along with the Xbox collection X.
Ubisoft’s 2019 title Tom Clancy’s Section two included an Easter egg in the form of a poster that appeared to tease the next Assassin’s Creed match as termed Valhalla.
The poster included an image of a Viking dressed in a similar fashion to an Assassin of the series’ previous titles and held what appeared to be an Apple of Eden, one of the Isu artifacts featured in Assassin’s Creed collection.
The Easter egg led Jason Schreier of Kotaku to report that there was a new Assassin’s Creed name in development, intended for release in 2020 but termed at the time Assassin’s Creed Kingdom.
However, on the game’s official announcement in April 2020, McDevitt reported that the Easter egg at Division 2 was a coincidence as the Swedish studio supporting the match, Enormous Entertainment, desired to integrate some Swedish iconography into The Division two and had no intention of imitating or reliving Valhalla. It was also reported that the game will be called Assassin’s Creed Ragnarök.
