Assassin’s Creed Valhalla

Assassin's Creed Valhalla Box Art

Norse-themed Assassin’s Creed Valhalla brings raiding, settlement building, and more advanced RPG elements to the franchise. The game’s story centers around Eivor: a fierce viking raider and member of the Assassins, who alongside his or her clan sails from the harsh Norway in search of richer lands. Arriving on the shores of England, Eivor’s clan establishes a village that will prosper and grow as a consequence of the player’s efforts. From this settlement the Vikings can launch brutal raids against Saxon fortresses throughout the lands.

While Valhalla is a single player game, it does have some online components. For example, it is possible to create and share custom mercenaries – Jomsviking – that can then be recruited by the player’s friends and fight alongside them in their campaign.

    Ubisoft is one of the most insane publishers on the planet.
    Not only do you have a “million” different editions for the game, there are different/exclusive DIGITAL preorder bonuses, and on top of all that, certain physical editions/preorder bonuses are exclusive to a specific country and/or retailer!

    Bethesda is getting this way, too. All of these game publishers have gone stupidly insane.

      Btw, I’m NOT hating on people who do like the series/willing to spend top dollar on A.C, but I am concerned that Ubisoft is making things more complicated than it needs to be. A simple “preorder this game (the standard edition) to get a steelbook + DLC, and/or just one, nice Collector’s Edition” is really all they need!

        This isn’t even the full thing though. They region lock different “editions”, and most of the time the U.S get the lackluster versions. I remember for A.C II they has the $200/$300 versions overseas, but all the U.S got were the “gold” editions only available at Gamestop. I think the original A.C had 4 different special editions but U.S didnt get even one

          The us is always getting the best physical preorder bonuses in the world. Europe always gets fewer – and worse bonuses. What you say is not (complete) true.

        Eh, just buy the ultimate 120$ version at launch or on sale for $35 at a later date. You can usually buy their preorder bonuses later or unlock them with Uplay points later anyways. I recommend renting the game for a play through and buying ultimate in a sale for cheaper price later.

          True.
          If there’s one good thing about Ubisoft games – the Collector’s, Gold, etc. editions are usually in abundance, even years after the game has since launched.

    The Season Pass says it comes with: ” +Bonus mission available at launch “… Is that another bonus mission, different from “The Way of the Berserker” bonus mission we get from pre-ordering…?

      OP EDIT – The two bonus missions are seperate! Confirmed by GameSpot ( https://www.gamespot.com/articles/assassins-creed-valhalla-dlc-roadmap-announced-heres-whats-coming/1100-6483505):
      “The season pass includes two major expansions, as well as a special quest themed around Beowulf. The Legend of Beowulf quest focuses on the hero Beowulf, leading up to players uncovering the “monstrous truth” behind the character. This quest will be available on launch day for season pass owners, but Ubisoft did not say when or if the quest will be made available to everyone else.”
