Today Ubisoft showcased the next instalment in the Assassin’s Creed series. Along with the cinematic trailer, Ubisoft released some gorgeous screenshots of the game. Could this be our first look at a next-gen game? Sure as hell could be. According to Ubisoft, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will release on PS4, Xbox One, PC and next-gen PS5, and Xbox Series X later this year. Furthermore, the game’s screenshots are from in-game.
Up to now, it has been hard to visualize just what next-gen will look like. Sure, Sony and Microsoft talk big about the advances their consoles have made, but we have not seen any gameplay. While the game is also releasing on current-gen, the screenshots are superb. Hopefully, this is a sign of things to come as we await Assassin’s Creed Valhalla on PS4, Xbox One, PC and next-gen PS5, and Xbox Series X later this year.
Take a look at the imagery down below;
Ninth century AD. Driven from Norway by endless wars and dwindling resources, a Viking raider, Eivor, leads a clan of Norsemen across the icy North Sea to the rich lands of England’s broken kingdoms. Their mission: establish a new permanent home, no matter the cost.
In Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, you are Eivor, a fierce Viking warrior raised on tales of battle and glory. Explore a mysterious and beautiful open world set against the brutal backdrop of England’s Dark Ages. Raid your enemies, grow your settlement, and build your political power in the quest to earn a place among the gods in Valhalla.
Wars will rage. Kingdoms will fall. This is the age of the Vikings.
