Next-gen is almost upon us, with our first look at the Xbox Series X gameplay for Assassin's Creed Valhalla, taking the popular action-adventure franchise into the Viking era.
In Valhalla, you play as Eivor, a Viking raider bent on earning a warrior's death and taking a place among the gods in Valhalla. The game it set in a large Ubisoft-style open world, powered by next-gen Xbox Series X tech, featuring the horrific English Dark Ages and oceanic North Sea combat.
Conquer new lands for glory and honor
After endless wars ravage Norway and resources are scarce, you'll lead your clan to the shores of England in the hopes of finding a new home. But not everyone is keen on having Vikings around, and King Alfred of Wessex will do all he can to keep you from settling.

I thought gameplay trailers were supposed to show parts of the game where you're actually playing it, not cutscenes. Regardless of whether the cutscenes are in the game engine or not, it's not showing off gameplay.
They had the game and they played a video....Game.....Play
Dunno why I expected anything else, I mean this current get was the same, as well as the previous one a lot of the time.
It did look good. But totally overshadowed visually by The Medium. I expected Creed to be the best. But The Medium just completely blew it away.
