The latest Assassin’s Creed Valhalla trailer is all about the inner turmoil of protagonist and Viking leader Eivor.
Eivor leads his clan of Vikings to England in search of a new home, but plenty more pushes them forward. As you’d expect from Assassin’s Creed, there’s a supernatural backdrop to elements of Valhalla‘s historical fiction, not to mention constant signs that Eivor’s search for peace leads them to a bloodier search for glory.
Scarcity is at the heart of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla‘s conflicts. It’s what drives Eivor and their clan to England in the first place, and it’s also what pushes them to clash with the English over riches and resources.
This is a major factor in Eivor’s decisions, but seemingly not the only one. A variety of quests and decisions affect the growth of your clan’s settlement and its position within English society, and Eivor’s choices as leader feed into all of them. It’ll be interesting to see how broadly those choices branch, and how Ubisoft balances them with the story it’s trying to tell.
