In line with the tradition of the series, the creators of Assassin's Creed: Valhalla put a lot of effort into faithfully reproducing numerous real-life locations. The material prepared by the Boi Sarfraz channel, which compares the locations in the game with real ones, helps to appreciate their work.
Of course, Ubisoft's developers created the locations in AC Valhalla to reflect the state they were probably in at the time of the game's action, the 9th century. That's why the locations shown are different from the real ones in many details.
The series has always had a lot of fictional and fantastic elements, and the latter have clearly gained advantage in the last few installments. Nevertheless, Ubisoft tries to make sure that their background remains faithful to the historical reality. This has resulted in the so called Discovery Tour for the previous two installments of the series, i.e. educational modes that enable us to take part in virtual tours to get to know the settings better. This variant of the game will also be given to Valhalla - it will be part of the season pass.
Assassin's Creed: Valhalla debuted on November 10 on PC, Xbox One, PS4, Xbox Series X/S and Google Stadia streaming service. On PS5, the game was released with the console's debut, on November 12 in the Pacific area, and on November 19 in Europe.
The pgame met with warm reception. It is the fastest selling game in the series. On the day of launch, twice as many people played AC Valhalla as Assassin's Creed: Odyssey.
