Valhalla is part of Norse mythology, meaning “hall of the slain”, this is the place where the dead would go after they die, a place belonging to the god Odin located in Asgard.
Previous title for the Assassin’s Creed franchise was Odyssey, set in Greece with plenty of Greek mythology and legends to discover. This title also went a bit more RPG than previous titles, adding skill trees and levels. The next title looks to follow the viking era, with longboats and an epic battle seen in the shared artwork. It will be interesting to see if they will stick with similar RPG elements that were in Odyssey and what new features will be added next. Let’s hope it will have equally stunning views and plenty of great combat.
