Assassin’s Creed Valhalla – A Brief Review
Set during the Viking Invasion of England, the story follows Eivor and her adoptive brother Sigurd, two fierce Norse warriors chasing glory. Like Odyssey, Eivor can be played as either a man or a woman, but what’s great is you can now switch between them freely to test which one suits you instead of being locked into that choice from the outset. Whichever Eivor you play as the story unfolds in mostly the same way.
Sigurd was supposed to be made a local king, but the unification of Norway under King Harald leaves him two choices: Bend the knee or leave. Unwilling to give up his dream of ruling, Sigurd convinces Eivor and much of his clan to abandon Norway and sail to England so they can violently carve out a new future.
Most of the story is concerned with what’s happening outside the borders of your settlement, however. In order to cement a permanent place in England, Eivor and Sigurd have to negotiate alliances with the various Viking tribes (and the occasional Saxon king). This is all centred around an Alliance Map, where I choose which region I want to venture to, participating in a somewhat self-enclosed series of quests to win the favour of whichever faction happens to be there.
