Assassins Creed Valhalla Cinematic Trailer Now Live, Hidden Blade Are Back

The wait is over as the Assassin’s Creed Valhalla cinematic world premiere trailer is now live. After Ubisoft trolled fans by posting an eight-hour-long video revealing artwork for the game, now we finally have an actual trailer. As expected, the game shows off a great looking world set during the Viking age. And yes, this game will feature actual assassins unlike AC: Odyssey. You can watch the entire trailer below.

The trailer doesn’t reveal much about the game, but we did see what looks like our main protagonist. We also saw a Viking horde invading an English land (just like how it happened in real life). And to put your concern to rest, the game does have the iconic hidden blade. Chronologically, Valhalla is set before the events of the original Assassin's Creed and the Ezio trilogy. It doesn’t feel surprising that there are Viking assassins, as the actual brotherhood was formed at the end of Assassin's Creed Origins which was set somewhere around 50BC to 40BC.

Not much is known about the story so far, but Narrative Designer Derby McDevitt confirmed that it will be related to Assassin's Creed Origins and Odyssey. "As far as [Valhalla's] story goes, we do continue the story that began in Origins and continued in Odyssey," McDevitt said in an interview with GameSpot. "We take that and we build on it in a big way. We also did a lot of thinking about how to connect all the games, at least the lore of all the games, to make it feel like everything we've done over the past dozen games has little feelers and little entry points into this game."

The trailer also showed off a raven, which will act as a companion pet to our protagonist, much like Senu and Ikaros from the previous two games. We will probably be able to control the bird. It is confirmed that Assassin's Creed Valhalla will release on both current and next-gen platforms. You will be able to play the game on PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PS4, and PS5. We don’t have the exact release date, but we know that it will release sometime during Holiday 2020, assuming there are no delays.
