Assassin's Creed Valhalla is the official name of the next Assassin's Creed game. After yesterday's long Twitch stream of artist BossLogic revealing the setting of the next Assassin's Creed game, we also got a date for the official trailer.
The Assassin's Creed Valhalla trailer just dropped today, April 30. And you can find the trailer on Ubisoft's YouTube channel, or on this very page down below.
Assassin's Creed Valhalla official trailer
While there wasn't any gameplay shown off, we got a neat little cinematic reveal, showing off some silky smooth animation that we likely won't see in-game. I haven't paid much attention to the Assassin's Creed games since Assassin's Creed: Unity. However, Odyssey definitely piqued my interest, and this game is about Vikings, which is badass, so I might just have to play it.
The biggest reveal out of today is that the game is coming to the Xbox Series X in Holiday 2020, so it's likely to be a launch title for the next-gen consoles. It's also coming to the current-gen consoles as well, similar to how Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag launched on both the Xbox 360/PS3 and Xbox One/PS4 back in 2013.

If you're interested in watching BossLogic work their magic in yesterday's 8 hour-long Photoshop stream, then you can watch their process down above. What really sold me on Black Flag were the ships, and since Assassin's Creed Valhalla also has some ships, I might just roll with it.
