Not long after unveiling Assassin's Creed: Valhalla, Ubisoft announced the gameplay reveal for next week's Inside Xbox, alongside Microsoft's Xbox Series X games.
Assassin's Creed: Valhalla has a lengthy cinematic trailer, but as grand as it was - it still leaves a number of unanswered questions.
Thankfully, the game's lead producer Julien Laferriere told Eurogamer a few bits of valuable info, such as a new village settlement hub.
Valhalla's narrative is said to revolve around your Viking village, which should reflect your prosperity. It's at the centre of our quests and the centre of the decisions you make. We want players to see the consequences of their actions", he said.
According to Laferriere, this is what ended up shaping the entirety of Assassin's Creed: Valhalla's development, giving players a reason to come back to their settlements. Moreover, as your village grows, so will the number of buildings available and consequently your capacities.
Most of Assassin's Creed: Valhalla will be taking place in Britain, where players will even get to hang out with King Alfred the Great. However, the reasons for where the game is set run deeper than that.
"You'll feel the harshness of the lands, the political pressure there at the time. You'll feel all that and hopefully, you'll understand why you have to move to England where most of the game takes place", Laferriere said.
As you'd expect from a Viking game, Assassin's Creed: Valhalla will let players ride longships and go on raids, with various rewards awaiting for them from firepower to manpower.
Microsoft's Inside Xbox is set for next week , more precisely 7 May 2020, when we should see more of Ubisoft's next Creed.
