As in the previous Odyssey, I also have the choice to play as a male or female character in Assassin's Creed Valhalla. But there should be even more freedom of choice.

Anyone who went through the eight-hour character stream with Bosslogic to announce Assassin's Creed Valhalla first saw a male title hero. Ubisoft quickly made it clear that we will have the opportunity in AC: Odyssey to take the adventure either as a man or as a woman.

In AC Valhalla you embodied Viking warrior or warrior Eivor and does what Vikings do best: raid England. You are leading your clan not only on raids, but also in a better future. For this you found on the island of Great Britain its own settlement, whose security and growth must not only be guaranteed with the ax.

9th century England is anything but united and so Diplomacy and alliances sometimes help more than brute force. These choices should according to Ubisoft influence the course of your story.

What does the game world look like?

As Players start in Norwaywhose rough country is forcing your clan to travel to England. But you should always be able to return to Norway. In an interview with GamingBolt, the developers revealed that there is also a lot to see and discover in Norway.

In England goes in the kingdoms of Wessex, Northumbria, East Anglia and Mercia with the three big cities London, Winchester and Jórvík (York). In addition to these three large capitals, there are said to be numerous small villages and settlements. So there are plenty of opportunities for raids.
