You’ll be able to undertake a Norse-themed adventure when Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla releases on November 17th. That is, if you’re planning on picking up a PC or current-gen copy of the game.
During today’s Ubisoft Forward event, the aforementioned launch date for Ubisoft Montreal’s next epic adventure was revealed alongside a beautiful new trailer. Said six minute-long video provides an overview of what fans can expect from the next Assassin’s Creed game, and does so in visceral fashion. Through it, you’ll see dual-wielding, raids, assaults and other open world activities.
The official Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla soundtrack and books are also now available for pre-order, including a novel, comic and art book:
- On July 17, a seven-song EP taken from the official soundtrack featuring original compositions from Jesper Kyd and Sarah Schachner as well as an original song by Einar Selvik, will be available to listen to on Spotify and purchase on iTunes. Spotify pre-save and iTunes pre-order are available now and the full soundtrack will be released at a later date.
- The Assassin’s Creed Valhalla – Geirmund’s Saga novel, written by Matthew J. Kirby, will tell an original story set in the world of the game. Players will discover the epic tale of Geirmund Hellskin, a man determined to prove his worth as a Viking and a warrior who joins the ranks of King Guthrum’s army to participate in the invasion of England. The book cover will be revealed on renowned Korean artist Jung Gi Kim’s Instagram account in late July.
- Dark Horse Comics will release Assassin’s Creed Valhalla – Song of Glory, a comic series written by Cavan Scott, illustrated by Martin Tunica and colored by Michael Atiyeh. In this prequel to the game, fearless Vikings Eivor and Sigurd embark on separate adventures to show their mettle and seek glory. Assassin’s Creed Valhalla – Song of Glory #1 (of three) will be in comic shops on October 21, 2020.
- Finally, The Art of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and The Art of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Deluxe Edition will invite readers on a visual journey through the world of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla – a world defined by the harsh beauty of Viking life, rich with fascinating characters and breathtaking landscapes. This book offers an enticing collection of art and commentary that is sure to attract returning fans and newcomers alike.
Since we still don’t know when the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 will be released, we can’t say whether those versions of Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla will launch on the same day as their current gen, PC and Stadia brothers. However, we do know that those who purchase the PS4 or Xbox One editions will be able to update at no cost whatsoever.
