Eivor, the main character of the upcoming Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will have a "coherent personality".
Speaking in a new video shared on Twitter, Narrative Director Darby McDevitt revealed that the development team preferred creating a character with a coherent personality, allowing players to choose from dialogue options that fall in line with a set characterization, as opposed as having the character be a blank slate with dialogue options very different from one another. This will make sure that Eivor will always feel complete, no matter the path players choose to take.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla was originally confirmed to be not as big as Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, but it seems like this will not be the case, as it's been suggested that the game will be somewhat bigger than Odyssey.
Julien Laferrière: I would actually say in terms of range it is probably a bit larger than Assassins Creed Odyssey. I do not have the exact figures at this stage, but we have not only created the whole country, which is in this case England, but also to a good part of Norway too. There are other secret worlds, which I can not speak about today, which contributed to the size of the game. It's not a small game, it is a game which is clearly ambitious, which will offer many many hours of gameplay for the players.
Assassin's Creed Valhalla will move the series forward while bringing back some of the features that fans loved from previous entries, such as the Hidden Blade, social stealth, and more.
