How To Pronounce The Assassin's Creed Valhalla Protagonist's Name

Fear no more, the developers have answered our questions.


After dropping the first official trailer for Assassin's Creed Valhalla, Ashraf Ismail, the creative director of the new Assassin's Creed title, has released a tweet in response to fan confusion on the pronunciation of the main character’s name.

The next Assassin's Creed will allow players to play as either a male or female Viking. However, unlike in Odyssey, both genders will share the name Eivor. Eivor is a fierce Viking raider raised on tales of battle and glory. Players will lead a group of Norsemen that have been driven from their home in Norway by endless wars and dwindling resources in the ninth century CE. After crossing the North Sea and traveling to England, players will need to carve out a new future for their clan on the foreign land and fight against the forces of England.
