Since being revealed a couple of days back, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla has been the talk of the gaming community. The Viking epic recently got a new gameplay trailer too, so there’s more fuel to the hype once again.
Before the trailer was launched, Microsoft noted that it would be a clip featuring gameplay elements from the game. Surprisingly, however, there wasn’t much actual gameplay footage for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. Still, we’ve managed to get some huge takeaways from what we’ve seen.
In one part of the trailer, we see Eivor leading what seems to be a siege on an enemy stronghold. As the game is set in the Viking era, it shouldn’t be surprising to see that such a feature would make it to the game. It might even be the substitute for Assassin’s Creed Odyssey’s Conquest, which wasn’t accepted well by fans.
If there is a siege mode in the game, it’s likely going to task players with taking over enemy strongholds using their army. This could feature large-scale battles pretty much like in Conquest. Hopefully, players are given the option to take a stealthier approach with sieges.
Ship’s play a huge role
A favorite feature is coming to Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. In Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, one of the best features of the game was that players were allowed to customize their ship. Everything from aesthetics, to crew members, were customizable. The ships are then used to either explore or partake in epic ship battles.
Based on the trailer, it seems like a similar feature will be back for the next game. The Vikings did make use of ships to travel around the world for conquering lands. Hopefully, the next game features a deeper ship customization system that is not a similar one to Black Flag.
Like in previous Assassin’s Creed games, the next chapter will provide the players with a companion. From the trailer, we can surmise that that companion would be a crow. The crow could be used to scout areas like in the previous games, but Ubisoft could also put in some new things as well.
The companion will be of great help for players, as this can make stealth missions a lot easier.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is shaping up to be an excellent title, and it’s going to launch later this year. Hopefully, we get to see more from Ubisoft as there could be a lot of other features and story elements we’ve yet to see.
