New stealth mechanics
As the medium has made known USGamer in a comprehensive article on the title of Ubisoft In which he has spoken with members of the company, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will have a good number of additional mechanics in stealth so that we can solve the different situations that will arise during the adventure. The most remarkable of all is possibly that we can fake our own death
On the other hand, Ubisoft has wanted to give new details about Sýnin, the crow of Eivor. This bird, in addition to serving us to explore areas from the air, can be used as a distraction tool during the stealth phases. In this way, we will be able to make the enemy guards pay attention to it so that we can enter the terrain without being seen. For now there are no more details on how Sýnin will distract enemies, but everything indicates that there will be many new features in relation to previous birds that have passed through the franchise.
Similarly, developers of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla They have mentioned that clothing will play a key role in stealth. The cape and hood of Eivor they will also be very important when it comes to using undetected, although they have not wanted to go into detail about it yet. Of course, it seems that the use of the cape and hood will not be as in previous installments and that equipping them will have more consequences as regards stealth in this new chapter of the saga.
A more brutal combat
On the other hand, members of Ubisoft Montreal They also spoke with the aforementioned media about the real combat without stealth of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. As we have already mentioned before, the possibility of using shields will return and, in addition, we can also equip ourselves with two weapons simultaneously. This will give option to a lot of fighting movements that will allow us to brutally attack our enemies. In this way, dismemberments and beheadings will become normal for the Assassin’s Creed Valhalla fighting since Ubisoft Montreal wants to show all the hardness used by the Vikings in their fight against the English.
Finally, remind you that Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will reach PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PC and Google Stadia later th is year. In this new adventure we will play Eivor, a Viking whose sex we can choose so that nobody is forced to play with a character with whom he does not feel identified, who will be in charge of directing the northern troops against the English. Thus, among many other things, we can configure different aspects of the Viking town to gain improvements and followers to help us in our crusade against the King Alfred of England
