Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Gets Cinematic Trailer, Coming To Current And Next Gen

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Gets Cinematic Trailer, Coming To Current And Next Gen

In an announcement that isn’t terribly surprising but is still very, very exciting – Ubisoft officially lifted the lid on Assassin’s Creed Valhalla yesterday via a very cool live art stream from Melbourne’s own BossLogic.

Fast forward to today, and we also have our first actual look at the game’s setting thanks to the very slick Cinematic World Premiere Trailer:

Vikings? Check. Bloody, brutal battles? Check. Hidden blade? Check!

There’s not a hell of a lot else to take away from the trailer that couldn’t already be inferred from the announcement of the title and setting, but it’s still pretty cool. Interestingly, though the trailer calls out a Holiday 2020 release for current and next-gen platforms, it only mentions Xbox One and Xbox Series X. No doubt nothing more than a marketing deal with Microsoft, as the game is definitely coming to all platforms (apart from Switch, sorry).

What do you think? Hyped for the game already or holding out for something more substantial than cinematics?

Kieron started gaming on the SEGA Master System, with Sonic the Hedgehog, Alex Kidd and Wonder Boy. The 20-odd years of his life since have not seen his love for platformers falter even slightly. A separate love affair, this time with JRPGs, developed soon after being introduced to Final Fantasy VIII (ie, the best in the series). Further romantic subplots soon blossomed with quirky Japanese games, the occasional flashy AAA action adventure, and an unhealthy number of indie gems. To say that Kieron lies at the center of a tangled, labyrinthine web of sexy video game love would be an understatement.
