Today, during the Ubisoft Forward show the French publisher showcased the first official gameplay of Assassin's Creed Valhalla.
Extremely underwhelming. Should’ve waited a couple more years for a proper next gen sequel.
Looks just like a reskin of AC:O, same clunky gameplay, animations, voice acting, dated character models including main character, even the graphics (except a couple of nice shots) were dissapointing and the worst part is that I'm pretty sure they were showing the Series X version of the game if not high end PC, definite pass for me.
Why are they still hung on cash grab re release of old games with minor tweaks. Give me prince of persia.
Yes it's more of the same formula. AC is has officially became stale. Passing up on this one. It looks like playing every other AC game is the way to go for me. I'll wait for AC 2021.
If you are coming out of the water... wouldn't your clothes be wet? Its that sort of detail that the next gen is supposed to bring to the table. All the small things that often times get missed.
I have to say this fails to impress... I'm tempted to think this is running on a One X at most.
It’s running on xbsx hardware
Why do Ac games look so unpolished? And just... old. I don’t get how exclusives like Spiderman, GOW, tlou2 can look so much better when the teams are the same size or smaller. Ubisoft needs to focus on changing things and making completely new experiences.
They go for massive open worlds and fill them will useless and boring things to do that’s what takes all of the resources up. What your seeing here is what you will be playing when it comes out Ubisoft haven’t got the time (Strict deadlines) and money or as much talent like rockstar, Naughtydog etc... this game just looks like a poor mans Witcher 3 even that game facial mechanics look better and that is a 5 year old game What’s so annoying is that opening CGI trailer looked so cool but it’s way off the Actual gameplay You will experience..
because they're still using the same engine from the 360/ps4 days. It's sad actually.
It´s called lazy developing,cash and grab formula instead of prioratizing creativity .
As a big fan of Odyssey, this is not looking that great. They focused way too much on the "side" diversion stuff rather than the core mechanics. They didn't step through the skills, different combat options, and more. And the combat looked pretty basic compared to Odyssey.
Why does Odyssey feel newer?
why people get hyped on Ubisot games is beyond me.….how many times does one has to be tricked until you lost trust on a publisher/developer??
This looks horrible, I mean the setting is cool but man the animations are mass effect andromeda level and graphics are very underwhelming. Pass.
It's literally the exact same shit as Odyssey and Origins which everyone praises lol. I do agree though for the most part. very underwhelming.
I've tried replaying origins and I'm currently playing odyssey, but there is something odd with this valhala trailer I can't pin point the problem. but watching the trailer feels like they downgraded some stuffs.
Odyssey looked way better than this. I bet they did out source a lot of the work and they ruined it ala andromeda.
I watched Ghost of Tsushima Gameplay after this. There is a generation leap in facial animations and overall Movements of Protagonist and other NPCs. Let alone the graphics fidelity, AC is no way near GoT's overall quality. Ghost of Tsushima might be more Assassins Creed game than AC Valhalal
The graphics look a bit jank and they will probably live-service the holy hell out of this game, but the setting sells itself, for me. That slide doge though...is...well...crap.
Looks worse than the last two.
I noticed that too. Overall not great, especially the face animations. Was this made by a different team or something?
Same team that made Origin. They say.
Made by the same team that made Origins I believe
It looks like that hey.
It look nice
I guess one man's trash is another man's treasure....
Please watch first.
Graphics aside I certainly like what I see gameplay wise and sound. Hopefully it'll be improved in areas where it doesn't shine as much by November so we shall see.
What? Regardless of graphics, the game is boring as fuck 😂. Just like all Ubisoft games.
Rayman, Splintercell and Prince of Perisa are not boring. What is boring however is seeing folk flock to the comments section on games they had no intention of buying just to proclaim they are boring without actually playing the games.
Ok Microsoft Who sent Ubisoft the xb360 dev kit by mistake?
The worst part is that this is Xbox gameplay. Yikes! Definitely not the best way for them to show off gameplay for next gen.
Not only the visuals... the framerate and animations looked terribly unpolished. I have a minimal hope that Microsoft will show a Series X version (assuming this one isn't) on July 23rd or I will give this a pass.
I don't think it is next gen I also didn't see anything saying it was Xbox Gameplay.
@DerfDerf Why wouldn’t it be next gen gameplay? I highly doubt they’d market the worst performing version of Xbox (which will probably be the Xbox One version). Look at the button prompts. All Xbox from the what I saw.
It's more than likely PC footage just like with Watch Dogs Legion
This is not the problem. the problem is that as all Ubisoft demoes, this will be downgraded 😂
What makes you think this is xsx footage?
@silenthillstrangler They have a partnership with MS, all button prompts are Xbox button prompts, they wouldn’t show Xbox One footage for a game they want to market the best they can. No way they can upgrade the visuals between now and the end of the year. Wouldn’t be surprised if it gets delayed.
So this game can't run at 60fps on next-gen consoles?! Are you kidding me Ubisoft?! Are the people working at this company that incompetent???
It's because they refuse to switch to DX12 for some reason.
Well Ubisoft never known to make stable optimized running games so...
How the hell did ubisoft manage to make this game look inferior to origins and odyssey, or is it just my imagination?
You're not imagining anything. Sadly.
Consistency seems to be a problem with Valhalla's visuals. Some things look worse, some things look better. Some of the environments look really good in my opinion. The character models (especially the faces) on the other hand look pretty bad. Some animations might need some polish too. The main problem is that the bad looking aspects distract from the beautiful aspects of the game. If they can clean some of that up, I think it'll be a good looking game.
Now i see why they didn't want to show it earlier, looks very underwhelming, like a lazy reskin of Origins and Odyssey.
I immediately lost interest when a kick launched the enemy 20 feet backwards
It’s a perk called super legs where now a 90lbs woman can do that
Ive never bought an AC game before in my life...looks like that streak will continue.
I think you should give AC 2, AC 4 and AC Origins a shot. Maybe Syndicate if you like steampunk, industrial London setting.
I have Syndicate on my X...just never booted it up yet. Dont see myself doing it anytime soon either, my backlog is crazy right now.
AC2 was so good a massive innovation compared to the 1st sadly the trend didn’t continue
I now know why Ubisoft was only showing CGI trailers, because the gameplay just doesn't look good at all.
Well I might give this a go, it finally has dismemberment.
I couldn't watch more than 10 minutes. Please remove Assassin's from the name.
I stop watching after 5 min
what will performance be like? assassins creed origins and oddessey are absolute drabs on pc. you need seriously high end hardware to get this running at 60fps akin to gta5 etc the city areas absolutely kill it. valhalla is likely to be similar
It looks like crap honestly.
still looks like shit
at 24:55 stacking stones!! OMFG is a must buy now!!! lol :D, I mean Really? and people think I'm trolling when saying developers are running out of ideas or imagination.
Well.. thats just saved me £50...
Not interested in Ubisoft, personally think there games are crap.
The only game I buy from ubisoft this genration is rayman legends and the last AC I buy was AC 4 black flag
Looking at ghost of Tsushima where you can see innovation this looks like the same old same old I would rather it go back to assassins creed 2 fight system in this setting
It does.....and it looks underwhelming. Nothing much changed from Odyssey, which as far as I’m concerned was a boring, bland game. The open world was overly large with plenty of reused assets. Shame, I was hopeful for this one.
pre order cancelled
