    Looking forward to being a badass viking who confounds the British by bathing regularly.

    By comparison-

    -and please do not judge me for this observation-

    -I'm pretty sure Kassandra is wearing the same pair of underwear throughout the entirety of AC: Odyssey.

    Which means Vallallalala already has a leg up on Odyssey.

    edit: This is a god-awful TOTP.

    edit 2: They should make the level-up mechanic only work during baths. Like you reflect on your life experiences between baths.

    *I pick up Origins 6 months after release, they announce Odyssey is coming 1 year after Origins’ release date*

    “Man, I wish they’d space these out a bit more. I don’t have time for an AC every year anymore.”

    *We’ll probably get AC Viking this fall, 2 years after Odyssey’s release*

    “I still haven’t beaten either Origins nor Odyssey. The problem is me.” :|

    There are no potatoes, it's before the 16th Century.

    They were called Britons, weren't they

    Edit: I guess if this is the Great Heathen Army then the lands they are invading are primarily Saxon, so, never mind

    one might say the shared history of viking conquests was a precursor to the later concept of a british identity

    Oh so you'll all accept the space aliens and immortal beings but a friendly forum poster wanting to travel to South America to get a potato to beat the english to death in revenge for a potato famine that, in-universe, won't take place for another 800 years is a BRIDGE TOO FAR

    there should be an achievement for sailing to vinland and taking a potato and sailing back and throwing it at an anglo saxon fort commander's head. did potatoes grow that far north in the 9th century? let's say yes

    I was just thinking about how all the day-of-the-week names in English come from the Nordic names except for Saturday, the day literally called bathing-day in the Nordic languages.

    They were fine with all the Norse gods but don't you dare try and make them wash once a week.

    Well

    Ah Tabi? From black flag was the leader of the assassins in the Americas, and there was something, I think, about the assassins being there before the Europeans invaded

    my memory is a bit sketchy, but I seem to recall one of the Apples showing the Americas, so it seems plausible that the Assassins popped over before the European conquests

    "In 1503, Ezio Auditore da Firenze sent a group of Assassins to Constantinople, where they managed to retrieve maps of the New World from Piri Reis' workshop. Realizing that the Templars were already expanding their influence to the new-found lands, the Assassins swiftly followed suit.[2] After these Assassin immigrants from Europe made contact with the indigenous peoples in the Caribbean, many natives joined the Order, finding similarities between their own way of living and the Assassin ideology."

    Lehi the Israelite was actually an early assassin, and in addition to writing his religious teachings on a series of golden plates, he inscribed the ways of the assassin onto a series of silver plates. While the golden plates went undiscovered until the nineteenth century, the silver plates were found much earlier, and translated by the indigenous peoples. Their assassins differ heavily from the mainline assassins, due to centuries of divergence and massive cultural differences, but they still exist, hidden in the woods of upstate New York.

    I'm so excited to see Ubi confirm that AC has returned to its roots with one of the core elements that makes the series so wonderful: murdering the absolute fuck out of the English hidden blades

    Very excited for the focus on axes.

    The tomahawks in AC3 are the best weapon in the series by far.

    The artwork posted on the last page looks to have a lady viking on the right side so I'm guessing that you'll get to choose which protag you play as again.

    Ah, can't buy the collector's bundle through uplay, apparently. store.ubisoft.com lists it as $200. Eivor statue is of a woman!

    Apparently, they've confirmed you can play as male or female. Eivor is even a female name.

    It sounds like a time of frequent conflict, and of course, combat plays a huge role in Assassin’s Creed and in the trailer. How has your research informed the changes made to combat in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla?

    TN: We know that combat at the time was rough and rustic. It was really harsh; our research taught us that Vikings were very versatile fighters. They knew how to use a wide variety of weapons; and managed to dual-wield any kind of weapons they could get their hands on. They even weaponized their shields, which is why you can dual-wield them in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. There was so much variety in Viking combat, and that’s what we wanted to make available to the player as well. Research also taught us that Vikings had many different battle tactics, and that’s where the raids come from. We wanted to make sure to reflect those raids and let players control them.

    Ah maybe not, 100+ years too soon.
    It is Norway and the Dark Ages of England – specifically the ninth century. In terms of England, it is quite a large map.

    Still the era where it's a bunch of Viking clans vs everyone trying to go legit with the church and forming countries.
