Will Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s Eivor be the series' most badass protagonist yet? Obviously, there’s some serious competition for that title, but it seems like it may be the case. Eivor can stealthily deploy hidden-blade instakills if they so choose, but they’re also a Viking, and will be able to take it to enemies directly with a heavy brawling style. The latest AC Valhalla trailer mostly focuses on the latter, as we see Eivor smash enemies with axes and shields, hit them with crushing running tackles, and more. We also get some hints about the journey Eivor will be taking in the game. Check out the trailer for yourself, below.
