The Hidden Blade in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Will be Instant Kill

The Hidden Blade in Assassin's Creed Valhalla Will be Instant Kill

Ashraf Ismail, the creative director behind Assassin’s Creed Valhalla confirmed that the Hidden Blade is back being an instant kill weapon on enemies.

Ashraf Ismail’s statement :

” We wanted to look at the old games and see the greatness that those games had and acknowledge what’s great about the updated formula. There was an identity and a uniqueness that we wanted to bring back for Valhalla. Eivor receives the hidden blade quite early on. We continue with the idea that Eivor is not a trained assassin. Eivor is a Viking who receives this badass weapon and has to learn very quickly. Early in the experience, Eivor will learn a technique that, with the right timing…can one-shot-kill virtually anybody.

And Yes, social stealth is back. The idea that a Norse person or a Viking is in a place that they’re not wanted, for them to sort of go incognito and hide in the crowd, if you will, made a lot of sense. “

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla launches Holiday 2020 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and PC.
