Assassin’s Creed Valhalla launches this week, and reviews have gone live for Ubisoft’s second sandbox set in Britain this year after October’s Watch Dogs: Legion. Coming off of the well-received Assassin’s Creed Odyssey in 2018, Valhalla had a high benchmark to clear and most critics agree that this latest chapter more than manages to live up to expectations.
A more focused adventure with interesting new tweaks to the core gameplay, Eivor’s journey across England in its dark ages has resulted in mostly positive reviews from various outlets.
In GameSpot’s Assassin’s Creed Valhalla review, we scored the game 8/10. “It takes a little while to build momentum, but when it hits its stride, Valhalla is a confident Assassin’s Creed title that takes a few narrative risks which, as a whole, pay off,” critic Jordan Ramée wrote.
