Can you do a full stealth run? You know, like an assassin.
If it does turn out to be Vikings then the likelihood is a big fat no as they wernt really known for the subtlety or restraint when it comes to combat.

Actually the Vikings did employ stealth tactics which at the time in the UK was considered a cowardly act.

More info has leaked apparently.

The title should be Assassin's Creed Ragnarok.

The world will include parts of Scandinavia, London and Plymouth, just like Odyssey we get to choose the main character, either way they'll be called Jora.

I had the stream on for most of the 8+ hours yesterday, if you answered 10 of the questions correctly you will get a bonus item when Valhalla is released, can't wait for this.

Think i'm going to binge the whole Vikings tv series now. Just been doing a bit more digging, the Viking tv series ran for 6 seasons however there is a sequel tv series being made for Netflix called Vikings "Valhalla" you really couldn't make this up.

Watching how this artwork was being created over the 8 hours was interesting.

You could also try the Lost Kingdom as well.

Be interested to see how AC manages to make the Vikings the "good guys" or whether they achieve this by giving the main character an Uhtred-like story arc.

I'll be honest, it didnt really pull me in. Its interesting to see how things like that are done but when i watched it there was tiny adjustments and uncovering bits and i just lost interest in it all. Not a chance i'd of sat and watched it for 8 hours. There was a video on the X1 forum of it being done in 5 mins which i'd of watched instead.

Looks good but it’s out at the same bloody time as Cyberpunk!

Well the cgi trailer was great but I want to see some gameplay. I hope it's more Assassin's Creed and not Breakpoint.

It says Holiday 2020 which is November- December the time the Next gen Consoles launch I expect it to be a lunch day title which is fine Black Flag was the same way back on PS4.

Hmm let's check their description: "including raids, growing their settlement, building their power, and expanding their influence ... Viking raider and a clan leader, players will face the conflicts of establishing a new home while in the midst of a power struggle for control of England" so i'm guessing stealth and assassination is out the window :/

For me one of the most interesting things about this game is it'll indicate if Ubisoft has learnt anything, re: microtransactions, generification and over-monetisation etc
