Assassin's Creed Valhalla is an upcoming action role-playing video game developed by Ubisoft Montreal and published by Ubisoft. It is the twelfth major installment and the twenty-second release in the Assassin's Creed series, and a successor to the 2018 game Assassin's Creed Odyssey. Set in 873 AD, the game recounts an alternative history to the Viking invasion of Britain. The player controls Eivor, a Viking raider who becomes embroiled in the conflict between the Brotherhood of Assassins and the Templar Order.
In 873 AD, war and overcrowding prompt Eivor to lead their clan of Vikings to leave Norway. They settle in medieval England as part of the Viking expansion across Europe. This brings them into conflict with the Anglo-Saxon kingdoms of Wessex, Northumbria, East Anglia, and Mercia. Eivor's clan will face forces led by the leaders of these kingdoms, including Alfred the Great, the king of Wessex. It is during this time that Eivor meets the Hidden Ones and joins their fight against the Order of the Ancients. Explorable cities include Winchester, London, and York. Parts of Norway will also be included. As with previous games in the series, Valhalla features a narrative set in the modern day that follows Layla Hassan, a character featured in Origins and Odyssey. Valhalla will also contain story elements related to the Isu, who, as part of the lore of the Assassin's Creed series, are an advanced civilisation that pre-date humanity.
The game is scheduled to be released in late 2020 for Microsoft Windows, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Google Stadia. It will also be Ubisoft's launch title for the next-generation consoles, the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5.
