The narrative director of the video game confirms that it was not a track consciously placed by the developers.
A poster with the Fruit of Eden and the word ‘Valhalla’ engraved on the top. That’s the poster that some players found in The Division 2. After Kotaku collected the information, rumors about a video game set in the Viking world spread like wildfire. In the end, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is a reality, but according to Darby McDevitt, narrative director of the title, the appearance of that poster was not deliberate, but a mere coincidence.
In an interview with Stevivor, the creative said the following: “Do you know what is crazy about this? It was a complete coincidence, ”says McDevitt. “It is simply because The Division takes place in Sweden, so they wanted to put something there. Whoever the artist was wanted to add some of the Nordic culture. It had nothing to do with us. ”
According to the person in charge of the script, it is not clear whether the name of the game had been decided at that time. “We always work with a code name and we have several ideas for the title. We decided on one in the end, but this was a lot of fun. The image on that poster has nothing to do with our game. Once you play Valhalla, you will see ”that there is no connection to the poster for The Division 2.
By the end of the year on PS4, Xbox One, PS5, Xbox Series X, PC and Stadia
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla has yet to announce its specific release date, but it is confirmed that it will be released later this year. Before the launch of the new consoles, Ubisoft will choose to market its title both in current systems and in the next generation, so it will be available on Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PS4, PS5, PC and Google Stadia. In the case of the Microsoft machine, it will use the Smart Delivery function, which provides the possibility of enjoying the game on both consoles without having to pay for both versions.
In this title we handle Eivor, a character who will leave Norway to embark on an adventure in search of a new home. You will find it in England, which does not mean that your goal is easy to achieve.
