Assassin's Creed Valhalla Is All About Vikings, Trailer Coming Tomorrow

Vikings and assassins come together in the next Assassin's Creed.

We've come to the end of Ubisoft's tease of the next Assassin's Creed. The eight hour stream also doubled as an interesting Photoshop tutorial and glimpse into the craft of Kode "BossLogic" Abdo. The artist started with a vague silhouette dividing two colored halves, and ended with a viking warrior whose face we can't see. That warrior is backed by Viking longships in colder climates on one side and warriors fighting against what looks to be English troops on the other.

The stream ended with the full image and the game's title: Assassin's Creed Valhalla. Ubisoft also announced the world premiere of Valhalla's first trailer, coming tomorrow at 8 AM PDT. Viking assassins are in our future! This will be the latest entry in the series since 2018's Assassin's Creed Odyssey. It's likely that the team that developed Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag and Assassin's Creed Origins are behind the 2020 release.

Of course, if the new Assassin's Creed is coming out in 2020, it does beg the question of where Ubisoft's previously delayed games will go. Ubisoft delayed Gods & Monsters, Rainbow Six Quarantine, and Watch Dogs Legion into this current fiscal year back in October 2019, meaning they should theoretically release sometime before April 2021. Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot recently admitted that the publisher was fine with delaying a major release like Watch Dogs: Legion even further if the release windows of the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X end up slipping.

M.H. Williams is new to the journalism game, but he's been a gamer since the NES first graced American shores. Third-person action-adventure games are his personal poison: Uncharted, Infamous, and Assassin's Creed just to name a few. If you see him around a convention, he's not hard to spot: Black guy, glasses, and a tie.
