UPDATE: Viking-set game to get full premiere Thursday.UPDATE 9 PM UK: Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is the full name of Ubisoft’s Viking-set entry in the series. A full world premiere for the game will be revealed tomorrow, Thursday 30th April, at 4 pm UK time.

Today’s Assassin’s Creed art Livestream has revealed Valhalla as a Viking adventure (surprise surprise!) with an interesting pair of locations.

The art shows a pair of scenes: Viking longboats against what looks like a Norwegian fjord, and Viking raiders attacking what looks like a British medieval castle.

The game’s main character, meanwhile, is shown in fur-lined armour with a Thor-like beard. A black raven, the animal associated with Viking god Odin, flies behind.

The unnamed character wields an axe with the Assassins emblem on its blade – the emblem is itself made up of two axes. Axeciting stuff! See you tomorrow for the full reveal.

But this is a broad time period, with a number of possible country settings.
