Good that Ubisoft stated that in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla to be Eivor feminine than masculine will be canonical, the game’s graphic novel tells a different story. The Dark Horse graphic novel series, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: Song of Glory describes Eivor’s life before the Ubisoft video game and apparently the chosen character is the female character. In this regard, we remind you that however, these are spoilers, so if you don’t want to spoil the surprise, look no further.
The former executives of Ubisoft, now fired, had turned their noses on the possible development of games with only female characters as protagonists. Some developers had revealed that in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, Kassandra was supposed to be the star of the game, while Aya from Origins and Evie Fry from Syndicate were supposed to play a much bigger role.
The first details on the three volumes of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: Song of Glory were first released several weeks ago, but a list of the Penguin Random House collection with all the issues – which will only be released April 2021 – provided much more detail. We recall the presence of spoilers.
Here is what we read in the description of these volumes: “ Intrepid Vikings face their fate in this glory-seeking prequel to Ubisoft’s next hit video game, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla« .
« Tensions escalate when a village wedged between two rival kingdoms is brutally attacked.
