Assassin's Creed Valhalla Brings the Best of Odyssey and Origins to the Cold and Majestic 9th Century England
Two years after the release of AC Odyssey, Ubisoft is preparing to introduce its new game in the popular series this November. The Valhalla adventure is set to take place in the 9th century England as Vikings led by a brave warrior Eivor invade the country.
Despite the Norse entourage, a few unique features, modes, and maps, Assassin's Creed Valhalla feels like a refined but majorly familiar experience that successfully capitalizes on the best gameplay choices of the two previous iterations – Odyssey and Origins.
We are to see the same gear, skill, and weapon tree system we had in Origins, and the customization here is consistent with the trends the series has been pursuing. The Valhalla edition is less RPG-focused, and the leveling system has been replaced with a new ‘global power’ level. The Odyssey’s special abilities system is making a triumphant comeback in Valhalla, tugging along the old biggies like Spartan Kick or Multi-shot.
The Valhalla Viking fantasy looks gorgeous and plays incredibly nicely, but we have to wait and see if it is going to be the best yet game in the series.
