The trailer demonstrates a handful of ways this will be achieved: by burning down grandiose old buildings. By sneaking stealthily across rooftops. By plunging one's blade into the neck of unaware enemies. By sailing to England (that comes first, I guess). You know, all the usual Assassin's Creed things. It is very impressive though, and I for one am very enthusiastic about having the British Isles to explore later this year.
The Assassin's Creed Valhalla release date is November 10. Wes played a chunk of the game earlier this year, confirming that there are violent nuns in the game.
