Assassins Creed Valhalla

Assassins Creed Valhalla

Next generation gaming is here and so are the games and the first one that I have had a chance to play is the brand new Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. I’ve gotten into about 10 hours of the game as of writing this review and I am playing it on the Xbox series X which is the latest consult from Microsoft. Right off the bat I can tell you that if you own one of these new consoles that have come out recently you will notice an automatic upgrade in the frame rate and the graphic Fidelity as it is stunning to play on a 4K television set. Do they really call them television sets anymore? Whatever you want to call him if you do have a new console and you have Assassin’s Creed you want to play this on a brand new television if you do not already have a 4K monitor. Besides that point this game is massive. The prior games which were Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and Assassin’s Creed Origins is the same in the sense of game play and how you approached each Mission or area. This time we are being given Vikings as the assassins and a story of Revenge but many plot twists and turns along with over-the-top violence and nudity.

As I stated earlier, I have not really gotten to the game to the point of flushing out the whole entire story but it’s Assassin’s Creed so primarily the store is going to revolve around Revenge. Every Assassin’s Creed game has political intrigue and who’s pulling the strings behind the curtain and how it affects you and the surrounding communities within the structure of the game. You don’t really find much difference here because the overarching theme of Assassin’s Creed if you have never played it before is a worldwide conspiracy that takes place in present day. I know that might sound confusing but the idea is that a machine called the Animus is actually able to read memories of ancestors of these assassins to put a puzzle piece together to form information that can be used to figure out the conspiracy or the overall arching picture of not just any particular part of history but almost how the world came to be and structured and a bunch of wild wild story lines. So here we are with Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and how this particular assassin which is a Viking fits into the big picture of the whole present-day Knights Templar conspiracy.

Assassin’s Creed has not changed very much year after year when it comes out in the sense of game play and the story lines because the overarching plot is always the same. The fun of these games is the combat and how you have to be very stealth to reach certain points of the game and to pull off assassinations and Howard effects the political aspect of the world but this particular game is massive and there’s so much to do and it takes about 60 hours to complete the game even if you were just to do the story line and not all the side missions.

Here’s my tip to you if you’re playing this game or any of the prior two games I’ve come out. When you get to the designated area in which is supposed to search for items of significance do not leave until you have achieved everything that area has to offer in the meaning of looting gold, side missions and collecting artifacts. This way when you get to the next phase of the story line you’ve already maxed out your character from the first chapter of the story line and you’re more powerful going into the next. Basically, level up to the max that that piece of land has to offer you before you move on. This game has a different structure and skill set and how you earn skill points along with how you build your character to be either a better Archer or skilled with the ax and so forth. You will also earn gold to upgrade your gear or to buy gear or you will just loot enough material to upgrade your armor clothing weaponry and so forth. One of the biggest changes for this Assassin’s Creed is you can be male or female and you can change your character whenever you want it any time and any point of the game.

If you enjoy Assassin’s Creed you will not be disappointed in the newest addition with Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and especially if you’re playing it on the Next Generation systems. This game is also available for current-generation such as PS4 and Xbox One X and it runs at 30 frames per second in 4K resolution for the new systems run at 4K resolution and 60 frames per second. Of course, the new systems also have better lighting shading and graphic fidelity so the game would look better but overall, the game will play the same regardless of which system you may have. And people that own Nintendo switch don’t worry is games never going to come out for you but if you have Mario Kart just keep playing that. If you are new to the Assassin’s Creed series in this is your very first time entering into the realm of conspiracy, politics and action welcome but also be ready to learn a lot of new things compared to other games you’ve played that might resemble this such as Shadow of Mordor the Lord of the Rings game which is probably the closest to a game such as Assassin’s Creed and if you love that you’re going to love this game.
