Ubisoft announced that Assassin’s Creed Valhalla won’t be focusing too much on the Norse Mythology.
That’s what the narrative director Darby McDevitt had to say :
” God of War is great–yeah, I’ve played it. It’s fantastic. I wouldn’t say we’re too worried because most games, when they touch this topic, they actually skew very heavily towards the mythology. So that’s the front-facing feature — you play God of War so you can go punch Baldur in the face, meet all these characters, and travel to fantastical environments.
Very few games actually treat the Norse Viking experience as historically grounded. I think the urge is to always immediately lead with the mythology stuff, but we really want you to feel like you’re living in the Dark Ages of England, that you’re exploring the Roman ruins left behind 400 to 500 years earlier by the Romans and the remnants of the Britannic tribes before that and even the Saxon Pagans before they all converted to Christianity.”
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla launches Holiday 2020 on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PC and Google Stadia.
