As the stream continued, the art eventually revealed closer looks at the game's setting and aesthetic, going as far as to suggest the return of naval combat and show off the franchise's classic logo on a Viking warrior's axe.
Thierry Noël, who served as a historian and inspirational content advisor for Assassin's Creed Valhalla, explained why it was important to let players embody either a male or female Norse hero on the game's official site. However, Assassin's Creed games usually come out for PC and PlayStation systems as well, and we don't expect Valhalla to be any different. The trailer is extremely light on the game's connection to others in the series. The Assassin's Creed series has covered pretty much every time and place, from the Third Crusade in Assassin's Creed to Ancient Greece in the latest instalment, Assassin's Creed Odyssey.
Will you be checking out Assassin's Creed Valhalla at launch if it's an Epic Games Store exclusive? The trailer is set to be just over 4 minutes long and give us a nice meaty look at the game for the first time.
If the title didn't already make it obvious, the next instalment in the Assassin's Creed universe will be focused in the Norse realm and Vikings.
After a marathon stream that took eight hours or so, artist BossLogic is done creating the reveal art for the new Assassin's Creed game.
