Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla has been worked on by a total of 15 studios

It looks like Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is going to be a very big game as Ubisoft Montreal has confirmed it has worked alongside 14 other studios to co-develop the next entry to the series. To put that into a comparison Assassin’s Creed Odyssey had a total of 10 studios worked on it, and that was an epic and sprawling title. Of course, Valhalla is a bigger project in that it is going to be a cross-generational title as it will be releasing on Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PS4, PS5, PC, and Stadia.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will also have new elements in it as it follows Eivor and their Viking clan come ashore in England to claim a piece of it for themselves. This means that part of the game will be about building up a new settlement and coming into conflict with the Anglo Saxons and Alfred the Great. This village will become Eivor’s hub where they can level up, change their looks through various customisable options, and changing up and improving weapons. There will be elements of supernatural inclusion with Eivor’s own animal being a raven which is traditionally associated with the Norse god Odin.

The above trailer was not quite the first look at the game though, with the company streaming a teaser in which BossLogic painted Valhalla’s key art through a long and drawn out live stream. Ubisoft has also released the trailer again but this one with audio description so more people can experience the reveal.

Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla does not have a release date yet but it is expected to release in Holiday 2020. The game is likely to spearhead a busy few months of releases for Ubisoft as the likes of Watch Dogs: Legion and Gods & Monsters are currently scheduled to release before April 2021. It would not be a surprise if one of those titles was pushed back.
