Yesterday, Ubisoft released a deep dive video into Assassin’s Creed Valhalla but the real draw was over an hour’s worth of gameplay in a stream that was also broadcast yesterday. The stream was hosted by game designer Jessica Maher who looked at elements like the village of Ravensthorpe, the return of social stealth, and the combat styles that players can use in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. The full stream can be watched below.
