ASSASSINS’S CREED VALHALLA PARENTS’ GUIDE

Assassin's Creed Valhalla is historically set in the 9th Century. Players incarnate Eivor, a Viking leading a tribe to invade and conquer West England.

The game takes place in Norway and the Saxon lands. The map is centered around four major kingdoms of England and three cities (London, Winchester and York). The game involves both battles, alliance making and clan management.

Vikings are defending their people by invading another land and raiding innocent villages. It is up to the players to determine who is good and who is bad.

What is Assassin's Creed?

Assassin's Creed games immerse players in the memories of their ancestors. In this 12th game of the Assassin’s Creed franchise, the millennia-old struggle of the Assassins, against the Templars goes on: while the Assassins believe in free will and the power to make one's own destiny, the Templars seeks to control and dominate humanity to lead them to a more perfect world.
