No doubt, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is one of the best enjoyable titles in the series, releasing with Viking RPG experience and satisfying combat elements.
Taking a trip back to the entire series confirms that the newly introduced title has retained the franchise components like Stealth, ARPG, Combat, and Exploration game elements; however, a lot of new content was also introduced. Like previous titles, the game features only a Single-player mode. It releases on different gaming platforms like PC, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, and Google Stadia.
The perfect mix of Action and RPG game components makes the gameplay enjoyable. It brings you to bone-crushing battles, a breathtaking environment, and thrilling scenes to enjoy. It is the 12th marvelous installment, serving as the 22nd title in the Assassin’s Creed video games. The game intends to take you back in 873 AD, where the epic battle repeats itself in a fictional environment. It offers a story of the Viking Invasion of Britain.
Introduction of Eivor (A Viking Raidar)
Although the game seems like the previous installments, new content was also introduced to keep you engaged for endless hours of fun. The game puts you in control of Eivor, a Viking Raider, who traps in the deadliest battle between two parties, such as the Templar Order and the Brotherhood of Assassins. During the game, massive castle conquests and deadly competitions to the ancient civilization floor make you feel like a Norwegian warrior in this new adventure.
Moreover, when Ubisoft is trying to fulfill its promise of introducing the perfect ARPG Viking adventure; meanwhile, it has been discovered the game stumbles into the crisis and drift from its traditional Stealth elements. It doesn’t mean the newly introduced title ditch the stealth; however, you need to be a bit stealthy when coming out of a castle, steal supplies, and sabotage foes.
Ancient Fictional World
Aside from London, the previously introduced Medieval-themed England environment is relatively flat. In contrast to the towering Italian Cities of original titles, the game seems slower in delivering a high-quality environment for vertical-minded assassins. If you’re one of those who love the Assassin’s Creed video game series because of its stealthy takedown, you may fall in love with Valhalla.
You would be happy to know that hand-to-hand combat is very satisfying, and upon playing, I didn’t notice any lack of stealth-focused missions. During the game, you can select a massive set of weapons, ranging from swords to Viking Axe. Moreover, each weapon introduces a slew, along with blood finishing animations, offering you a yummy taste for vicious warfare Vikings.
A New Stamina Bar
The game features a new stamina bar that massively influences your play style. It makes your movement limited temporary, and depleting to zero will cause your death on several occasions. Both invalid axe swings and dodging attacks will speedily deplete your stamina. Meanwhile, prevent the button mash from being a viable option.
With excellent RPG Level Progression and a beautifully crafted Medieval-themed world, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is a gorgeous and enjoyable game to play. A few lacks are there, like small focus on stealth and game crashing issues are unhappier, but not unwelcome. Multiple open-world environments keep you engaged in navigating the landscapes and other areas for the completion of missions. The highly detailed combat evolves you into a gory art while offering a storyline to experience a true saga. Everything seems perfect, except for confusing quest requirements.
