On May 7, it was confirmed that the first gameplay trailer of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla played on Xbox Series X will be shown. While waiting for it, Ubisoft continues to give us details on the game that we want to share with you.
In an interview with the site Stevivor, the Narrative Director of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, spoke about how the romance will take place in the game, along with the utilization of ships. First of all, the director has revealed that the ships will play a central role in the title, they can be used to navigate rivers and lakes but not in the open sea.
“The emphasis with the longships, as a mechanic and as a feature in our game, is very important. It’s for getting up rivers and sailing across lakes, and using them to raid and to explore, to take your crew deeper and deeper into England. It’s quite different than Black Flag, which is all about the open ocean and things. These are what you call river horses. They’re really meant for traveling inland, and we try to use that to the greatest effect in this game. There’s all kinds of ways you can use the longship to get where you want to go, and bring your crew with you. But no, it’s not about open sea travel. Even though that that was the technology the Vikings used to get across the water, what the Viking longships were really best at was swift and speedy travel up river.”
Also in this new chapter will be present the romance, or the love stories, which can take place with various characters encountered during the adventure, it will be up to the player to decide the approach to use.
“Yeah — there’s a lot of romances to have that can be found all over the map and you can choose how to approach them any way you see fit, he said.”
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will release on PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PS4, PS5, and Google Stadia in holiday 2020.
