Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla feels like a real open-world game. In its predecessor, Odyssey, it was easy to spend hours on the starting island, and with Valhalla purportedly even larger, there is potentially much more to explore and do. The game focuses on a complex set of political intrigue between the Danes and English as the player character is a Dane looking to settle with their clan in England, to the displeasure of the English. Valhalla’s world is packed with activities and minigames for players to partake in while they explore a darker, grittier England than one would normally see in Fantasy RPGs.
