BossLogic, Ubisoft, Viking Assassin's Creed Valhalla

The next Assassin’s Creed will be a Viking-filled entry that goes by the name Assasin’s Creed Valhalla, and a full trailer reveal is scheduled to arrive tomorrow. Ubisoft confirmed the name and premiere time shortly after the conclusion of its artwork teaser stream, revealing that the trailer will drop at 8 a.m. PDT tomorrow.

The premiere’s YouTube page is live, though there’s nothing to see yet. Twitter user Wario64 pointed out that the video will be four minutes long.

The aforementioned livestream today was hosted by prolific pop culture artist BossLogic and featured the creation of the game’s first official artwork over a significant stretch of time. BossLogic crafted some Viking-themed art, thus building up to the official Assassin’s Creed Valhalla reveal later on.

As the stream continued, the art eventually revealed closer looks at the game’s setting and aesthetic, going as far as to suggest the return of naval combat and show off the franchise’s classic logo on a Viking warrior’s axe. Judging by the art itself, fans can expect to visit a brutal Norse world filled with just as many historical references as the series is known for when Assassin’s Creed Valhalla launches.

Before official confirmation of the name was revealed, website was registered just yesterday by Gandi SAS, a registration company that previously registered the domain for Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. That title, the most recent in the series, released in 2018.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla finds itself set to release somewhere during the launch window for the next generation of consoles, so PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X versions of the game seem almost inevitable. The last time the series saw a cross-generation release was in 2013 with Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag.
