Director Darby McDevitt explores the beliefs and cultural values of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla in this video. The world in the game is at a turning point: the old pagan beliefs of the people of Europe are dying out and being replaced by Christianity.
In England, where the Valhalla events will mainly take place, Christianity appeared relatively new, but already firmly entrenched. However, many pagan religions are still thriving. The most noticeable influence remains with the pantheon of gods worshiped by the Scandinavians – people who live in the areas of modern Norway, Sweden, and Denmark.
In the Scandinavian concept of reality, the world was divided into nine areas. The highest realm, Asgard, is home to the most important gods. You can get there via the rainbow bridge. There is a place called Valhalla – a hall of fallen heroes where they feast with Odin and wait for the arrival of Ragnarok – the final battle.
In the game, the Scandinavians do not pray to the gods for redemption, but negotiate with them and make sacrifices for good luck. The Vikings are much closer to honor and prestige than Christian concepts such as virtue, sin and atonement. This does not mean that the Scandinavians had no conceptions of goodness or ethics: in the poetic Eddas, among the stories of debauchery, deception and cruelty are fragments of incredible beauty and profound meaning. For example, a poem called “Hovamol,” allegedly written by Odin himself, tells mortals how to live with dignity.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will be released on November 10th on PC (Uplay and Epic Games Store), PS4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and S, and on November 12th on PS5. In mid-October, Ubisoft released the System requirements for the Game.
