Assassin’s Creed Valhalla has been revealed today with a slick cinematic trailer – the next episode in Ubisoft’s sprawling action franchise.

An Assassin’s Creed game set during the viking era had been hinted at in Ubisoft’s The Division 2, which also followed a leaked report suggesting the game was going by the code name Assassin’s Creed Kingdom.

Ubisoft Montreal is leading the development of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, with the help of 14 other Ubisoft studios.

Now it’s out in the open, we can expect to see a cinematic trailer reveal highlighting the setting, main character and hinting at the plot, before a full gameplay reveal at a later date. Maybe even timed to coincide with the rumoured Xbox Series X livestream expected during May.
