It seems actual Assassin's Creed Valhalla gameplay has now leaked online, and yes, this is the real deal! Details and more here.
Hmm....I have to see a better quality video.
Doubt it. Ubisoft is taking it down fast...
Assassin’s Creed ‘leaks’ are never leaks, they are nearly always orchestrated by Ubisoft.
Ugh... eagle again? What's with those wolves A.I.? 😐
@Marquinho - What AI? :)
a little better https://www.youtube.com/wat...
If someone told me this was Assassin’s Creed from the PS3 era, I would have believed them. But then again, I need to see a better quality video.
Thanks for sharing BeRich, But i think ill skip another AC game... it looks like a current gen game and after seeing this I think that is why they didn't show any gameplay during Microsoft event.
I wonder if this was an intentional leak to gauge fan reaction? My reaction is not good...for two reasons.
The source video is the trailer, so no gameplay...and on YouTube....its gone.
aaaannndddd.. it's gone
AC Origins had a fantastic story. Odds are this story will be good too. But it does just look like the current gen games and I can't be impressed by that especially if they want to increase game prices. This isn't it.
To sum the video up Ctrl C Ctrl V Done
Good point. I’m really surprised,Ubisoft was allowed to get away with this for so long. Granted the story in AC is phenomenal, especially Origins.
Oh dude origins story was boring asf imo.
@mrsolidsteel20 No... just no... AC stopped being phenomenal after AC2. I will admit that Black Flag was fun, but mostly because of sea battles. I've also heard good things about Odyssey, but they might as well stop calling it Assassins Creed and just start making fantasy rpg's loosely based on history and mythology.
Why don't they fork out the RPG entries into a separate franchise? And release that every 2 years or whatever. And in the meantime bring back the old AC and release it every 4 or 5 years when they deem it significant enough. Quality shall improve drastically.
Yeah basically the first comment on the one I saw.. Odyssey with Vikings.. not impressed at all.
@mrsolidsteel20 Oof, origins was very boring lol. I couldn't bring myself to like it at all and just went ahead to odyssey
So true haha
@mrsolidsteel assassin's Creed story was phenomenal? None of them were great with the exception of AC2
It actually looks worse than Odyssey. Odyssey had more combat elements and this showed only two and never even used dodge, just moving. About halfway through Odyssey, I was using mostly assassin chain abilities in combat not just whacking things with weapons over and over. And then there was the whole archery line of things as well. I get people want more of the original concepts, but I do like the RPG gameplay as well. But, this Valhalla gameplay just looks bad. I can also see why Ubisoft moved away from the older concepts after doing the same thing over and over for 4 games and getting trashed on it for it.
that's a recipe for SHIFT + DELETE
Looks like they took Assassins Creed Origins and went all Witcher 3 with it.
You can still tell a lot about that game despite the poor video quality though. HUDs, skill trees, outfit/weapon upgrades shown, on-rails horse paths, uninspired voice acted NPCs, unrealistic dashy combat mechanics....its all there Solid! Lol
Them NPCs look stiff as a board with no life in them it’s hard to see after coming from playing the last of us 2 even though I hated that story everything else was top grade
From the videos, Assassin's Creed Valhalla looks like more of the same. Ubisoft could explore new avenues for Assassin's Creed franchise, like set it in Asia (Japan, China, etc) or even set it the future (something similar to Blade Runner). They basically use the same formula over and over again...
Yeah it looks like a Ubisoft game... I will pass
Looks last gen compared to Horizon. Crysis remastered too. PC/Xbox is even more garbage than I thought.
Go home. You're drunk.
You're ridiculous. This is clearly a highly unfinished rough build and it's probably the current gen version. Let's wait to see the final game running on the PC and next gen consoles before spouting off.
This game is trash... hard pass....
not sure why I was expecting something more surprising and appealing , this is just more of the same.
Yea, it is unfortunately.
Yea, the menu's creed. Was longing for an OG Assassins Creed Revival .... guess have to wait a bit more till Ubisoft ditches its Carbon Copier and try 're'-innovating.
I think the will reveal the gameplay in the JUL event for Xbox. but again it sucks
That event is for 1st party, AC Valhalla was shown at the 3rd party event already. The next time you will see this is at Ubisofts stream (if they are doing one)
DJStotty I have doubt Microsoft will have 1st party exclusive event
They wanted Native 4K they got it. 4K requires at least 4X the GPU power of 1080p system, and it takes 3x the GPU power to double fps. That means we would need a 14 TF GPU to guarantee 4K @ 60fps in every game with slightly above current-gen graphics. Slightly above graphics would consist of global illumination or low - mid level ray tracing, high - ultra quality shadows, more environmental detail (foliage, better clouds, better ground maps, textures), and better particle effects. These are all things that we would notice, but moving from medium to Ultra isn't a next-gen jump. This is why I keep telling everyone stop worrying about Native 4K and be okay with checkboard rending, dynamic resolution, and Resolution scaling because Native 4K is a waste of GPU power when resolutions over 1440p offer enough clarity that most of you would never know is no Native 4K unless someone told you, however higher FPS and better visuals are clearly noticeable.
A typical console gamer will not understand what you are trying to say. Just wait these people will see that a game targeting native 4k60 will just look like a last gen game @4k60.
I never understood "it's more of the same" when it comes to sequels. Isn't that the point of sequels? They have added new story, new gameplay, new settings and well new everything but it's still going to be a Assassins Creed game as that's what it is.
New gameplay haha that’s the same cut and paste job from origins and odyssey I mean look at them physics so average no wonder Ubisoft are taking down videos so quick
That CGI first trailer made you feel like this, it did me making you think this could be the year for innovation with the new next gen consoles in reality it’s the same old rinse and repeat average game from Ubisoft we have seen a thousand times before. Literally just looked like origins and Oydessy with a different Vikings theme.
What platform is this running on?
Youtube (just kidding). Damn it's so blurry I hope we'll PS5 footage next Sunday at the Uplay event.
Xbox Series X
Don't think so, read somewhere that it was running on a PC with 1080p.
Def some kind of XBOX since it is showing XBOX trigger nomenclature on the interface. At least we can say its not a playstation but beyond that... I can only HOPE its running on something current gen, its the only thing that would explain it but it doesnt explain the crappy cartoony gameplay
Probably PC with an Xbox controller
Ps4. It said on a Facebook video in Portuguese.
I has a prompt to press Y it's clearly xbox.
They said XBSX but the quality is so bad it doesn’t matter what platform it was running on
Was expecting something different. This is just more of the same. Still excited though
I too was expecting NBA.
I was expecting a re-skin of Odyssey, which in turn is a re-skin of Origins. Right on the money, the same money I won't be giving to Ubisoft.
If you are disappointed it looks the same or boring then maybe you’ll realise Origins and Odyssey weren’t that good. They just finally changed the game up and we all thought because it was fresh it meant it was good. The series isn’t the same anymore, it’s a quickly put together new IP
Well I thought Origin was pretty good, but that’s just my opinion. Damn you really are a negative person.
He’s actually right. They stole a lot of their formula from other games and then copy and pasted it the last 6 years in every game
Origins is a great game held back only by being forced to be an “Assassin Creed” game. In my opinion it would have faired better with its own identity, own title, own story. Like an open-world Ryse: Son of Rome. Tying all these continuous games into such a convoluted narrative for the sake of continuing a series, misses the opportunity to tell new and more meaningful organic stories. Can’t remember actually caring about any of the protagonists or NPCs in any AC game. But the parkour sure is fun lol
“ Damn you really are a negative person” Oh here we go, attacks on the user because you don’t like what they are saying It might be negative and I’m bursting this happy as ever bubble but I’m a realist, doesn’t mean I’m not being truthful. I’d understand if the gaming industry was sunshine and rainbows but it’s not.
Origins was good. It had a crap story (as is standard for Ubisoft games) but nice graphics and good gameplay. Odyssey on the other hand is a step down in all areas from Origins. It even looks worse.
The only reason Origins was "Good" is because everything after Black Flag was bad. In my opinion of course.
I find Origins to be much better than Oddysey. It was way more focused. Oddysey was all over the place and it got boring.
Same, I just couldn't care about any of the characters in Odyssey. And the combat changes they've made to the series just wore out after Origins.
Origins was great and Odyssey was fun enough. This looks more of the same and that's exactly what I expect with a Assassins Creed title. It's still at the heart the same as the first Assassins Creed only better when it comes to gameplay. It certainly doesn't feel like a new I.P.
Personally, I enjoyed origins and odyssey. Would liked to have seen a little bit more of a gameplay freshen up. But I’ll buy it. A solid launch title.
All assasins creed games follow pretty much the same formula. You gather some intel about your target then you kill your target until you get to the head honcho. There has arguably never really been much tact to how you can kill your targets and lots of the social stealth elements in prior games ended up being poorly utilised or not expanded upon at all. At least these new titles function very well as open world action adventure games. Perhaps having nailed that aspect of the game they can revisit the social stealth elements and use them in more interesting ways.
Didnt people enjoy both those games? Either way judging a game based of a leaked low quality video seems like jumping the gun when we don't really know what the game actually builds upon compared to last 2 entries.
***If you are disappointed it looks the same or boring then maybe you’ll realise Origins and Odyssey weren’t that good.*** Odyssey was great. Just not what you wanted. I had way more fun in that than I ever did in RDR2. People seem to be really resistant to change right after they spend 4 games complaining about things not being different enough.
