Here's our first look at your settlement in Assassin's Creed Valhalla

Your custom-designed settlement in Assassin's Creed Valhalla will be your home in England.

One of the biggest new features in Assassin's Creed Valhalla is that it will allow players to create their own settlement in England. This homebase can be customised to your liking, and will grow as you progress through the story.

Valhalla's creative director Ashraf Ismail shared a screenshot of Eivor's home in England. We've actually seen this screenshot before, but Ismail's Tweet provides some context.

According to the creative director, you'll be able to take part in some relaxing activities such as fishing at your home, you can even see a fish rack visible in the shot. Like it does in Red Dead Redemption 2 and other games, this area offers players the opportunity to get to know their people better by talking to them and periodically checking on things.

This is where you'll also be able to "consult with your war chief," which will likely have a bigger impact on gameplay out in the open world.

In other Valhalla news, Ismail confirmed this week that both the hidden blade and social stealth are making a comeback, which addresses one of Kirk's hopes for the game.

Assassin's Creed Valhalla is out this holiday on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.
