Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla is taking place in Northern Europe in the 9th century. We play the role of a figure named Eivor who is the head of the Viking clan; interestingly, we can not only choose a female or male version of the protagonist but also allow the animus to switch between these versions at specific moments. After leaving conflicted Norway and crossing the North Sea, the hero and his men arrive at the coast of England. Unfortunately, there is a violent fight for power in this resourceful land, and the Eivor clan attracts the attention of Alfred the Great of Wessex, who not only recognizes himself as the rightful ruler of England but also condemns the pagan Vikings. To make England their new home, and to secure a place in Valhalla, Eivor and his warriors must fight. Their future depends on the alliances we form or the dialogue options we choose.
