John Carpenter, the legendary horror filmmaker who directed The Thing, Halloween and other horror classics is enjoying Assassin's Creed Valhalla's "massive, beautifully designed open world and great gameplay".

It looks like Ubisoft hit the nail on the head with their Viking-themed action-adventure Assassin's Creed Valhalla. The overall reviews scores are quite high and players are certainly starting to appreciate some of the changes that made the game less bloated but more fun than Odyssey.

John Carpenter, the legendary horror filmmaker who directed classics such as The Thing, Halloween and They Live to name a few is also playing Assassin's Creed Valhalla. The 72-year old director is a passionate gamer and has enjoyed The Last of Us, Borderlands and Bioshock series before. Last year, he also tweeted about Fallout 76, dubbing it "a glitchathon of a game".

Anyway, in his latest tweet, Carpenter revealed that he is currently enjoying Assassin's Creed Valhalla, which returned to excellence in the popular franchise. He also praises the game's open world, beautiful design and great gameplay. Here's his Assassin's Creed Valhalla tweet in full:

"ASSASSIN'S CREED VALHALLA is a return to excellence in the franchise. Massive open world, beautifully designed, with great gameplay. Incredible game."

We have to agree with John since we have also been playing Valhalla for the last couple of weeks and the game really is stunningly beautiful but also plays very well. However, it's buggy and hopefully, Ubisoft will soon release a patch to fix some of the major glitches and bugs that are taking away from the incredible experience.
