Over the course of an eight-hour livestream, Ubisoft slowly revealed that the rumors were true: the next Assassin's Creed game will take place during The Viking Age. Called Assassin's Creed Valhalla, the game is scheduled to get a brand-new trailer very soon.
If you missed out on the livestream or couldn't watch the whole thing (because, again, it was eight hours long), we have you covered. The video above is a sped-up timelapse of the complete stream, condensing the entire experience into five minutes. That's a little bit more manageable in our opinion.
Assassin's Creed Valhalla is scheduled to release this year, though an exact launch date hasn't been announced yet--Ubisoft hasn't revealed which systems the game is coming out for either, though it's a good bet we'll see the game on Xbox One, PS4, PC, Xbox Series X, and PlayStation 5.
Given the time period--The Viking Age started in the ninth century and continued through to the eleventh--it's likely Valhalla will continue the origin story of the Assassin Brotherhood and Templar Order, which began in Assassin's Creed Origins and continued in Assassin's Creed Odyssey. The Viking Age actually ends just before the events of the original 2007 Assassin's Creed.
