Assassin's Creed Valhalla trailer finally reveals more of its story

For better or Norse.

Ubisoft has today revealed a little more of Assassin's Creed Valhalla's story in a new trailer.

Up until now, we knew very little of Valhalla other than the fact it featured a Viking named Eivor who would come to Ancient Britain and rub King Alfred up the wrong way.

Well, now we know a few morsels more. Eivor has a brother, Sigurd, and will meet the Hidden Ones (the proto-Assassins) before shipping out of Norway.

The trailer is noticeably light on cutscenes and heavy on in-game footage, even if it isn't straight on gameplay. It's our best look yet at what the game will offer in just five weeks' time, when it launches for all the Xboxes, PC and PlayStation 4 on 10th November. Its PS5 version then follows on 12th November.

Oh, and there's a podcast documentary series on Vikings available through Spotify now detailing more about the game's historical background. It's called Echoes of Valhalla, and the first episode is available now.
