Not gonna' lie, this is now my most hyped PS5 game (Well, that I know of...), and it's a day one buy, cannot fucking wait!

Cyberpunk is my most hyped game on XSX still, followed by Halo Infinite, but AC Valhalla is definitely 3rd place now.

Almost the same for me, but Halo is number one; I'm confident 343 studio with their new slipspace engine and written by Paul Crocker will be a Masterpiece ! 5 years in development, and MS really want to revive both Halo and XBox together with 343 Industries.  IMO this is the best chance ;)

meh cinematic trailers devoid of gameplay scenes do nothing for me, especially now that it's impossible to tell if what they are showing is just CG or the quality we can expect ingame

Never knew Vikings had assassin hit men besides maybe a Beserker if one would even consider them that. They are more in your face types of brutes. Not dancing around in the dark and hiding type.

AC hasn't been about assassinating people in a long time. This isn't news.

I miss games about assassins... I say let's bring back Tenchu: Stealth Assassins!



Signature goes here!

Ah sorry don't follow series.  I guess they should just call it Killers Creed now.

As do I. Not that the new direction isn't fun in it's own right, but it's certainly a massive departure from what the series once was.

That would be more accurate 



Starting to think only Xbox doing the free upgrade. Great deal.



 

 

Guys, you seem to be forgetting that Origins and Odyssey both took place before the Assassin Brotherhood was founded in 47 BC, that was why they were more so "killers creed" than "assassin's creed", you could still assassinate people in them but Ubisoft put a greater focus on improving the actual combat because they looked at their metrics and saw that far more players played AC as an action game than as a stealth game.

Origins shows the founding of the Assassin Brotherhood at the end of the game, while Odyssey is set about 400 years before the founding of the Brotherhood. Valhalla seems to be set sometime around 873 AD, long after the Brotherhood as founded, just a few hundred years before Altair and Assassin's Creed 1. We are playing as an actual Assassin this time, hence the hidden blade, with rumors suggesting that 1 hit assassinations are back, instead of having assassination damage be gear based with some enemies not dying from an assassination if they were higher level or were bosses with too much health. And while a viking Assassin may seem like a contradiction, we've known since a 2017 novel released that the Assassins had a Scandinavian Enclave by 985 AD, which worked to oppose a proto-Templar presence in Scandinavia which was trying to topple King Eric the Red. We'll likely be seeing the foundation of the Viking assassin enclave about 100 years earlier in AC Valhalla, our player character may be the first viking assassin, inducted into the Brotherhood while outside of his home country on a Viking raid sometime early in the game.

thank you...

would have made zero sense for to have assassins before the brotherhood was even though of being formed. I don't think alot of people follow the lore of AC games.
