We’ve seen that Asgard is going to be a part of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. I don’t think Ubisoft could get away with making a Viking game without it. It’s a mythical place that was at the heart of religious beliefs and is always depicted as this shining city. If you’ve ever seen the Thor movies, it’s meant to look exactly as it does there. Admittedly, I imagine there’s a lot less technology, but since I’m not an actual Viking I don’t know for sure. Regardless, we will be visiting Asgard in Assassin’s Cred Valhalla, so how is it going to work?
In the recent coverage from Ubisoft, we were told that you can find moments of learning and reflection in the smallest of places in England. I imagine that Eivor could come across a burning village or dead body by the side of the road, and later come to ponder this in their settlement. Thanks to your seer, you’re able to go into a trance and reflect on what you’ve seen, which is where I believe you’ll see Eivor’s understanding of situations develop.
Of course, a reflection is nothing if you’re not being transported to Asgard. The city is said to be home to a tribe of gods and hosts many smaller realms. These realms aren’t explored in as much detail as Asgard is, but that’s alright. In the game I’m sure we’ll be focused on Asgard.
When it comes to the purpose of visiting Asgard, I think it’s all about getting certain perks from the gods. There will no doubt be a challenge that we have to face, such as killing a giant wolf or another monster, but afterward I think we’ll be given something for conquering our fear.
The gods, and Vikings, were all about fighting. This was how they did everything, and I think that it will be a core part of showing Evior learning about the new world they’re living in. England is a strange place, and I think that some aspects of it, which seem completely normal to me, will be very challenging to Eivor. Hopefully, Asgard lives up to my expectations in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.
