I’ve already tried Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: Dawn of Ragnarok and I’ll tell you if it’s worth it

Assassin's Creed Valhalla

I always find it funny to think about how I talk to a friend I have about the world of the Vikings. Mainly, because I am able to hold a conversation with someone as passionate as he is about his world and its customs thanks to two things in particular: the Vikings series that premiered back in 2013 and, secondly, everything I have been learning thanks to Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.

Regardless of the fact that I have to mentally juggle the concepts of their culture when I talk to him about it and that I remain silent listening pretending to understand everything he says, the world of the Vikings freaks me out for a specific reason: mysticism. that it existed within their own culture; how reality was intermingled with beliefs about Gods and kingdoms plagued by Elves.

That’s why I really wanted to try Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: Dawn of Ragnarok, the new expansion of the base game that can be played from next March 10. Now, I’ve already spent a good handful of hours in the game and I can’t resist telling you what it felt like to get back into Odin’s skin… so, let’s get down to business.

What is Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: Dawn of Ragnarök about?

  • This great expansion will take us to the uncharted lands of Asgard with a completely new map full of things to do
  • We will once again put ourselves in the shoes of Odin with a specific objective: to rescue our son Baldr
  • The great playable novelty of this expansion is a bracelet with which we can steal the powers of enemies that we kill
  • On the other hand, the optional challenges and the possibility of obtaining completely new weapons and equipment as a result of exploring the different areas of the map are back

Is this expansion worth it?

I would like to end these impressions with a resounding ”yes” to the question I have just asked. But it would be unfair if I didn’t tell you a little more about why this Assassin’s Creed Valhalla expansion has completely overturned all my skepticism:

  • I have to admit it: I started playing the DLC quite suspicious because the fantastic part of the saga is what attracts me the least about it
  • However, I have to say that the experience itself has surprised me much more than I expected for good
  • The new map of Asgard is as well cared for and full of secrets as the original game
  • Odin’s new skills give a great variety to the options you have when facing combat
  • The latter also leads us to something that I liked from the first moment: with these skills, you will feel like a real killing machine… even more than with Eivor
  • Taking into account the duration of all the content that this expansion offers, I could tell you without thinking too much, that The Dawn of Ragnarök is so big that it could be a complete installment on its own

Waiting for the first rumors that have already come out about what would be the next installment of Assassin’s Creed to be confirmed, The Dawn of Ragnarok is a very good option when it comes to continuing to enjoy the saga, but from a point of view something different: now we will not be a Viking who is at the mercy of the Gods, but one who fights against the threads of his own destiny to demonstrate how much power the Asgard pantheon possesses.

A Plague Tale Requiem, announced the launch date with a gameplay trailer

A Plague Tale: Requiem saw it recently on the occasion of the Summer Game Fest, and precisely of the Xbox and Bethesda Showcase. On that occasion, however, no launch date was announced.

We, therefore, expected to have to wait a bit before the game returned to show itself, but today a new and full-bodied trailer of the game published by Focus Home Interactive and developed by Asobo Studio was released. And together with the gameplay video, the release date also arrives on October 18, 2022.

Pre-orders for A Plague Tale: Requiem is already open for all versions: the game will be released on PS5, Xbox Series X | S (where it will be available from day one on Game Pass ), and PC. Different speech for the version dedicated to Nintendo Switch, which will arrive in an as yet unknown future.

The trailer shows us some exciting sequences as the two protagonists, Amicia and little Hugo, must cross hostile territory in an attempt to escape from the soldiers who try to capture them.

In the twelve minutes of gameplay, it clearly emerges that the interaction between the two characters and their skills will be a key element of the game both from a narrative point of view and regards the game design solutions adopted by the development team in the construction of the levels.

The player will be called to interpret the situation in which he finds himself by choosing different approaches and favoring – at least in this initial phase – a stealth strategy, even if in some cases the clash with the enemies will prove inevitable.

As far as the technical level of the game is concerned, given that it is a next-gen title, the work done by Asobo Studios (which is not surprisingly the team of wonders behind the impressive Microsoft Flight Simulator ) already seems excellent.

Finally, the Collector’s Edition was also presented for those who are not satisfied with the simple physical or digital version.

From Software is about to announce a new game development is almost done

Hidetake Miyazaki, president of From Software, was recently the protagonist of an interview with the Japanese portal 4Gamer, in which he dropped what is a real bomb for fans of the software house: From Software’s next game has already entered the final stage of development, so it shouldn’t be long before the official announcement.

Approximately 4 months after the launch of Elden Ring, From Software is therefore in the process of releasing a new title, however, fans of souls like should begin to contain the enthusiasm, since there is ample chance that the next project will go in one direction. completely different, digging into nothing less than the company’s past.

According to rumors, in fact, From the new game could be none other than Armored Core 6, the sixth chapter of the famous series focused on mecha combat, born in 1997 on the first PlayStation. The saga has been missing for some time now, considering that the fifth chapter has been released on PS3 and Xbox 360, so it would be a highly anticipated return by fans.

The indications regarding Armored Core emerged already at the beginning of the year from a survey shared by From Software, in which they spoke about the possible return of the series.

That the company was working on another game had actually been known for some time, more precisely from an interview in 2018. On that occasion, Miyazaki had announced that the studio had been working on three and a half titles since 2016, which with the time turned out to be Déraciné ( the half-title, a VR experience for PS4), Sekiro, and Elden Ring.

The remaining game is none other than the project now in the final phase – born 6 years ago – which we will probably discover very soon.
