Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla – folklore and legends in a new video

Yesterday evening, The Future Games Show, organized by GamesRadar, was one of many virtual shows that are to compensate us for the lack of a real fair this year. Among the presented games was Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla, the latest installment of the hit series by Ubisoft.

The video material shown is very interesting as it focuses on the mythical side of the game, an aspect that has so far not been strongly exposed in the available videos from the production.

The game will be released in November this year.

In the material, we can see, among others clash with the beast known as Black Shuck, a ghostly black dog from the folklore of the British Isles. Then the so-called Daughters of Lerion, or children of a betrayed ruler whose legend inspired Shakespeare to write King Lear.

Finally, we could watch excerpts from the adventure revolving around the six warriors who served the famous Ragnar Lodbrok. After his death, they lost their purpose in life and only want to die with honor in battle to join their leader at Valhalla.

All these missions are not part of the main storyline. These are optional stories that we will find while exploring the game world. The authors put a lot of effort into such elements, because they want them to be a reward for players who are tempted to explore virtual England on their own.

Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla is coming to PCs, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 as well as the Google Stadia streaming platform. The game will be released on November 17 this year.
