It seems that someone took advantage of Ubisoft's recent troubles and snuck out a lengthy gameplay video of Assassin's Creed: Valhalla - a 30-minute long one.

You're probably aware of the ongoing restructuring of Ubisoft, and while we won't be discussing it today, the leaked Assassin's Creed: Valhalla certainly lifts some of the lingering uncertainty caused by the stepping down of the now-former director Ashraf Ismail. 

We actually entertained the idea of Ubisoft doing it on purpose just to reassure fans, but we quickly dismissed it after their lightning-fast copyright strike raid on YouTube. Thankfully, the internet is much like the Hydra - remove one head, and another three sprout in its place. 

Now judging Assassin's Creed: Valhalla by what's still a vertical slice is a bit tricky, since there's a lot of gameplay left. That said, there's plenty to be optimistic over and depending on your personal preferences - a few things to be worried for too. 

Assassin's Creed: Valhalla's announced return to the franchise's roots seems to have taken a slight detour towards the modern-RPG roots as well. While this is not necessarily bad, it is a creative choice that doesn't sit well with everyone. 

Combat seems to be fluid and on par with what you'd expect from the next Assassin's Creed, and there are a few gorgeously framed scenes in there. Heck, the fiery arrows on the boat look like Saving Private Eivor.

Assassin's Creed: Valhalla's leak ends with a boss fight at the Burgh Castle. Players will clearly be given a choice of whether to exercise mercy or not, leaving it to them to shape the protagonist's character.
