May 7, 2020

As promised, the first look of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla gameplay was shown on today’s Inside Xbox presentation.

The trailer, which you can view above, features in-engine cinematics from the upcoming Ubisoft game Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. While we see some dual-wielding Viking action, the actual in-game UI was not shown. Much of it was flaunting the various environments we’ll be able to travel to. Regardless, it gives us a taste of what to expect the game to look like when the Xbox Series X eventually releases this Holiday.

Personally, I am still excited about Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. Everything I saw in the trailer looks great. However, I expected a deeper dive into the actual features of the game. Even just a tiny glimpse of what combat would look like while actually playing the game. Instead, the footage shown looked more like cutscenes we would see from the game. I’m still excited, but the video was definitely not what I expected in a gameplay trailer.

First revealed with an 8-hour live stream of artist BossLogic creating key art for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, the next entry in the popular open-world action-adventure series will take place in ninth-century England as the Vikings fight the Saxons. You will play as Eivor, a Viking leader, as you build your clan and raid opposing fortresses.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will launch for Xbox Series X, Xbox One, PS5, PS4, PC, and Stadia in Holiday 2020. You can check out our discussion video to see what we thought of the recently revealed cinematic trailer and details. In short, just like God of War’s Cory Barlog, we are very excited for the new entry.

You can pre-order the game right now. You can check out our Assassin’s Creed Valhalla pre-order guide if you are not quite sure which edition of the game you want to purchase.
