Vinland Saga Creator Pens Short Crossover Comic for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and Vinland Saga's recent collaboration birthed a short crossover comic that features both works' protagonists.

October 24, 2020

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla has a surprising yet very fitting collaboration with Makoto Yukimura’s Vinland Saga, in which the manga artist created a special oneshot comic for the occasion. You can read the extra comic here:

Both works directly tell the story of the Vikings’s invasion of England but from two different perspectives within the infamous conflict in history. The comic itself flaunts some fantastic artwork from Yukimura, and just short enough to make you want more (or at least I sure do).

In the latest story trailer video for Valhalla, Ubisoft gives us a look at what looks to be some of the early game cutscenes and interactions that we’ll see in the full release. The trailer centers around Eivor and his brother Sigurd as they look to find a new home in the nation of England. In the process, we’re also given a look at some of the various factions and foes that Eivor will have to do battle with over the course of the game. The trailer then concludes by presenting us with a tease of a mysterious group called the Hidden Ones, who seem to play a major role in the story.

Overall, the storyline of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla looks pretty straightforward from a top-down view. Then again, AC Origins and Odyssey didn’t contain a whole lot of depth at first either, but the way in which those stories grew in complexity over the course of the game was quite interesting.

If you’re interested in finding out more of the game, read up on our preview of the title here, which Cameron Hawkins states “looks to have everything it needs to be one of the best titles in the series.” We also interviewed Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Producer Julien Laferriere sat down to chat about the team at Ubisoft Montreal and their strive to bring the ultimate Viking fantasy all while telling a story with compelling characters and an immersive open-world.
