Assassin's Creed Valhalla continues the series' trajectory towards a more RPG-focused experience that began with 2017's Assassin's Creed Origins. Set during the 9th century Viking invasions of Britain, the game will feature a new open world, fortress raiding, and a new settlement expansion mechanic.
The game features a new protagonist named Eivor, who can be either male or female.
Though still a single player game, Assassin's Creed Valhalla will feature an online component wherein players can customize mercenaries and share them online to fight with other players.
It is the first Assassin's Creed game for the ninth generation of Sony and Microsoft consoles, as well as the first to be announced for two console generations simultaneously.
