Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is perhaps one of the most awaited titles from Ubisoft at the moment. It’s, perhaps, only surpassed by a rendition of the universe in feudal Japan, that fans have been clamoring about for years.
The official trailer offered us a pre-rendered cinematic that looks impressive, but has nothing to do with the world that the game proposes. And, let’s face it, an Assassin’s Creed set in Viking times is the bizniz, but it lacks in substance.
Well, Ashraf Ismail, the Creative Director of the game, challenged the status quo by treating fans to a picture with the caption: “Here’s your home in England”, implying that the game will have different countries that the player will visit.
The tweet also includes some tidbits of information that fans of the series will find interesting, and if this speculation is proven to be right, it might lead to a more immersive world for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.
Ashraf added that in this particular town you could spend a lazy Sunday fishing at the docks, consulting with the local chieftain or checking on your fellow Vikings.
This might be a way of confirming that the game will have a social aspect to it and will include activities present in past games. Who knows, maybe we get some AC2-style settlement building, fishing like in Black Flag and a new revamped social engine that will allow the player to build a better community of Vikings.
It is too early to speculate over a picture, but the artwork sure looks impressive and offers fans a way to build up the hype, the tweet receiving in a few hours more than 6,600 likes.
