‘Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’: Everything we know about longship gameplay

Eivor is a Viking who is set to conquer new land in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. To make the conquest easier, they’ll have to make use of a longboat as a means of getting around.

One of the key features of the upcoming Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is the longship. In the game, this is more than just a means of transportation, as it can be used for other things as well. Here’s everything we know about this feature and why it is crucial for players.

Raids and pillages

This won’t be a Viking game if there aren’t any pillaging and raiding involved. The map in the game is divided into multiple regions, separated by bodies of water. To make raids more successful, players will use their longship to dock on shores and begin ambushes.

In the game, raids are massive tough battles between Eivor’s clan against other rival clans. It’s an optional part of the game, but it’s something that players will want to do as there are rewards for completing them.

Recruiting a cat

One of the odd but welcome features in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is the ability to recruit a cat. The cat isn’t exactly going to join Eivor on raids, but they can be visible from the ship itself. The cats will serve as a companion to the players and their crew.

It’s an excellent addition to the game, and it will satisfy pet lovers as well.

For fishing

In the game, Eivor health bars won’t regenerate over time. To heal themselves, they’ll need to eat food. Getting food can be done by foraging the land to produce. It can also be done via fishing.

Players can fish near villages, but they can do so at sea via the longship as well. There’s a chance that the further they go into the waters, the better the quality of fish they can get. There are various fish to capture in the game, and they vary in sizes as well. These fishes carry certain effects, so players will benefit from exploring the seas.

Players can see the longship in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla as another character in the game due to the role it plays. It’s like the player’s ship in Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag as it serves a purpose far beyond exploring. Players will have a fun time exploring the world with their longships.
