"Being in Eivor's boots as both a Viking raider and a clan leader, players will face the conflicts of establishing a new home while in the midst of a power struggle for control of England". Ubisoft hasn't gone into detail, but here's what we do know.

What is the release date for "Assassin's Creed: Valhalla"?
The world premiere trailer is set to debut tomorrow, April 30th at 8am PT/11am ET.
Ubisoft has officially announced the next Assassin's Creed game, which is titled Assassin's Creed: Valhalla. And if that doesn't sound fun enough for you, Valhalla will see the return of the series' trademark Hidden Blade which will allow you to "assassinate targets with deadly precision".

It's been an exciting couple of days for Assassin's Creed fans everywhere. Earlier entries in the series focused more on stealth with typical action/adventure elements.
It's your own Viking village you'll see prosper and grow, and which your clan mates will live in. You'll be able to choose to play as either a male or female Viking and customise your gear and overall appearance.
The raids in Valhalla will have the player leading longship attacks to pillage enemy territories or launch assaults on Saxon strongholds. We hear a narrator, who is later revealed as the King Alfred of Wessex, lamenting the heathen Vikings, calling them out for their supposedly barbarous ways - his words are noticeably at odds with what is portrayed of the Vikings on-screen. "Against all odds, Eivor must do what is necessary to keep Valhalla within reach".
That suggests that 15 of Ubisoft's 40 studios have been involved with the development of Valhalla in some form or another. In terms of raw numbers, Ubisoft revealed that just under 1,000 staff were working on Assassin's Creed: Origins, with around 200 to 300 working on the art alone.
