Are Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and God of War similar? Ubisoft doesn’t think so

The new chapter of Assassin’s Creed His name is Valhalla and transport you to the Nordic era to play Eivor, the leader of a group of Vikings. Since this is an action role-playing game that lets you control a character who believes in Norse gods, there seems to be a parallel with God of the war of 2018. However, Ubisoft is not afraid to enter the same field as the game SIE Santa Monica Studio.

« God of War is fantastic – yes I played it« Said the narrative director of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Darby McDevitt. « It’s awesome. But I wouldn’t say we’re too worried because most games, when it comes to this topic, actually evolve very strongly into mythology. So that’s the main feature: you play God of War, meet all the characters and travel through fantastic environments.«

McDevitt continues: “Very few games actually treat the experience of the Norwegian Vikings as a story. I think the impetus is to focus on Norse mythology, but we really want players to be able to live in the English Middle Ages; they will explore the Roman ruins left by the Romans and the remains of the British tribes 400 to 500 years earlier and even before that by the Saxon pagans before they all converted to Christianity«

Ubisoft views Valhalla as a more deeply rooted experience in which the existence of the gods depends on personal interpretation and is more in line with how Assassin’s Creed Origins treated the Egyptian gods than Odyssey with the Greek pantheon.  » For someone like Eivor – in the midst of battle – we thought he would think he saw Odin“McDevitt said. « This is the same team that created Origins and our feeling on how to incorporate mythology is similar.To this end, McDevitt describes Valhalla as « the last entrenched Viking fantasy ». Although Norse mythology plays a role in the game’s story, it looks like it won’t take on as literal an interpretation as in Odyssey, where players fought creatures like the Minotaur and Medusa, met gods like Poseidon. and Hades, and visited places like the Champs-Élysées and the underworld.  » We have created this huge world to explore where to attack, to attack, to meet interesting people, but it will be in the skin of a human being, like a person who has to ride a horse to cover long distances, rather than fly or whatever. thing like that»A conclu McDevitt.

We remind you that Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will arrive later this year and will be available for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4, as well as for Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5.
