Ubisoft has revealed a lot of information about Assassin’s Creed Valhalla before launch, even confirming that Jotunheim and Asgard would be in the game. In a new video with IGN, however, lead systems designer Marc-Antoine Pietri goes into more detail about the various combat skills that players can use. Check it out below.
The focus in this video is “brute force”, whether it’s executing finishers on stunned foes or stomping on them for massive damage. Players can also fire highly damaging arrows at foes with enough charge time, tackle them, throw axes and unleash a flurry of strikes. Some enemies will even have weak points that can be shot to completely deplete their defense.
We also get another look at Eivor’s settlement, which is where he’ll unlock facilities like the Blacksmith for upgrading weapons and the Fishing Hut for unlocking the Fishing Line. Tons of other facilities exist and should provide compelling enough reasons to improve the settlement.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is out on November 10th for Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PS4, PC and Google Stadia. It releases on November 12th for PS5.
