Assassin's Creed: Valhalla will be released for Xbox One, PS4 and PC on November 17. We know the game will also be a launch title for Xbox Series X and PS5, presumably meaning those consoles will arrive on or after November 17. Shown off at today's Ubisoft Forward event, a gameplay deep-dive showed work-in-progress footage showing a female Eivor on a raid down English rivers, using a warhorn to set her crew on English village defences. Crews will assist on all raids, including to use siege weapons, and to carry heavy loot. The game will include more enemy types than any previous Assassin's Creed game, including some that work in tandem, or use environment objects to attack you (including dead bodies).

We also saw a look at the game's settlement system, including its Alliance Map, which shows the alliances you've made across Britain. A weapon overview showed off how the game will use dual wielding across any weapon types, and a stealth overview showed how the game will let you use disguises. [ignvideo url="https://www.ign.com/videos/2020/07/12/assassins-creed-valhalla-gameplay-overview-deep-dive"] IGN also went hands-on with Assassin's Creed Valhalla, and learned a bit about the role the Animus will play in Assassin's Creed Valhalla. Valhalla will also be seeing the release of several expanded stories in comic book, novel, and other forms. Here's everything Valhalla players can expect separately available:
  • On July 17, a seven-song EP taken from the official soundtrack featuring original compositions from Jesper Kyd and Sarah Schachner as well as an original song by Einar Selvik, will be available to listen to on Spotify and purchase on iTunes. Spotify pre-save and iTunes pre-order are available now and the full soundtrack will be released at a later date.
  • The Assassin’s Creed Valhalla – Geirmund’s Saga novel, written by Matthew J. Kirby, will tell an original story set in the world of the game. Players will discover the epic tale of Geirmund Hellskin, a man determined to prove his worth as a Viking and a warrior who joins the ranks of King Guthrum’s army to participate in the invasion of England. The book cover will be revealed on renowned Korean artist Jung Gi Kim’s Instagram account in late July.
  • Dark Horse Comics will release Assassin’s Creed Valhalla – Song of Glory, a comic series written by Cavan Scott, illustrated by Martin Tunica and colored by Michael Atiyeh. In this prequel to the game, fearless Vikings Eivor and Sigurd embark on separate adventures to show their mettle and seek glory. Assassin’s Creed Valhalla – Song of Glory #1 (of three) will be in comic shops on October 21, 2020.
  • Finally, The Art of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and The Art of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Deluxe Edition will invite readers on a visual journey through the world of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla – a world defined by the harsh beauty of Viking life, rich with fascinating characters and breathtaking landscapes. This book offers an enticing collection of art and commentary that is sure to attract returning fans and newcomers alike.
Before the event, we saw two separate leaks of AC: Valhalla gameplay, a 30 minute chunk that included siege warfare, and a boss fight against a mystical figure called Cordelia. We've seen a lot of Valhalla ahead of this announcement. After its reveal event, we learned 44 gameplay details, heard about its open world activities (including Viking rap battles), and got a little look at its evolving settlement.
