The footage, which is being bounced between hosts as Ubisoft attempts to scrub it from the internet, gives us our first real look at the female version of Eivor, after only the male version was featured in the game’s two recent trailers. The footage covers a lot of ground, showing off some of the game’s open-world, naval gameplay, lots of melee combat, and an assault on the real-life Burgh Castle in East Anglia.
The footage is grainy and there are aspects that look like they will be polished before being shown off officially, but as a small slice of what to expect for Valhalla it’s a comprehensive leak. Valhalla looks to be retaining many of the structural elements from Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, including dialogue choices and role-playing aspects that might affect the narrative. Specifically, Eivor is given the choice to kill or spare the occupants of the castle she invades, which may or may not tie into quests later.
The footage was split into three parts and hosted on Streamable, but Ubisoft has been aggressive in trying to take down the footage throughout the day. A Reddit thread dedicated to the leak is keeping track of active links though, if you are still hoping to see it.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will be featured at Ubisoft Forward, which takes place on July 12 at 12 PM PT/ 3 PM ET. Other games expected at the show are the recently revealed battle royale Hyper Scape, as well as Watch Dogs Legion.
