The most anticipated Assasin’s Creed installment is just around the corner and will be hitting our shelves in less than a month. In the past few weeks, Ubisoft shared a lot of content from Assasins’s Creed Valhalla. It was quite intriguing but we also saw some strange features in the game that you normally wouldn’t find in an Assasin’s Creed game. Without any further ado, here are a few stranger features in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla that could make things a bit uncomfortable for Asssains/Templars fanatics.
Fighting sharks underwater came as a surprise to us in AC Odyssey. In Valhalla, developers are sticking to this water gameplay by adding the ‘fishing’ feature in the game. From one perspective, fishing was a major part of Vikings’ lives and the developers did a good job in making the game more realistic. But on the contrary, such a feature inside an Assasin’s Creed game doesn’t make much sense.
For the first time in the franchise, the ‘Eagle Vision’ will be replaced by ‘Crow Vision or Raven’s Eye View’. This means that you won’t be needing the help of your eagle to tag the enemies and find the riches lying around the city. Instead, you’ll get a Raven, which will basically replace the Eagle vision. Similarly, ravens were also a major part of Vikings’ belief and developers surely added this feature to make the game more realistic. But this is another strange feature that you really wouldn’t normally find in an AC game.
Assassins Creed Valhalla – 5 Strange Features
Assasin’s Creed Valhalla will feature cats that you can talk with. Once you’ve recruited the cat, it will join your ship crew to keep them accompanied. While you’re laying siege on the enemy ships and launching barbaric attacks, the cat will be roaming the ship minding its own business. To us, this feature sounds quite strange. It is going to be weird to have a cat wandering around the ship while you’re in a conflict.
Unlike the previous installments, once you’ve taken some damage, Eivor’s health will not regenerate itself. You’ll need to find proper remedies for health regeneration. Supplies like mushrooms and fishes can found around the Island which will be used for health regeneration. This is another feature that we haven’t seen in a long-time and it feels like Ubisoft is migrating this feature from the Far Cry series. You’ll have to stock up supplies every time you’re thinking about raiding the enemy bases.
No Assassin Vibes
Similar to Odyssey, Valhalla also doesn’t feature much content that explores the history of Assassins and the Templar Order. From what we saw in the early access footage, Valhalla seems more like an open-world RPG based on Vikings and their conflicts with England rather than exploiting the Templar Order. But, we’re not certain if this is true because, after the release of Odyssey, Ubisoft was heavily criticized by the fans for not adding the actual Assassin’s content in the game.
Aside from some of these strange features, we saw some mouth-watering content from the early access footage. We’re eagerly waiting to get our hands on this one. Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will be released on November 17th, 2020 on Xbox, PC, and PlayStation 4.
That’s all folks!
