Get them both. Before them, the only experience I had with the AC series was getting about 2-3 hours into the first and telling it to kiss my arse I ain’t sneaking around all the way around wherever the hell this is.

Well the storm last night fried my gateway so I won’t have internet till AT&T sends the new one :(

Luckily(ish) I have a couple more days on this hitch so I don't have time to play anyways

re: Assassin's Creed Valhalla Discussion Thread
I'm guessing there'll be a good bit of ship gameplay. I know I'm probably in the minority, but those really haven't been my favorite part of the last few games.

I was that way, but I kind of started to enjoy it in Odyssey. And if you make a viking game, you HAVE to include big viking ships.

I just hope it isn't a copy/paste of Odyssey.

Odyssey was great, but I groan at the thought of dumping another 100 hours into an AC game

But honestly, it was too much


Origins wore me down. I played it a few months ago and even though I love BIG open world rpgs, this was too big. Too many busy work locations.

I still have a favorable rating but it needed some trimming down. By the end of the line, I was looking at those question marks with the same disdain I had for Skellige water question marks.

Even though I overall enjoyed Origins, I had no interest in Odyssey and zero interest in Valhalla.

Just watched the trailer. That was pretty dope, but it was a cinematic.

Origins was shite compared to Oddessy.

That might be top 10 all time for me

If you want to talk about content, I might entertain that Odyssey is better, but Bayek is BY FAR a better protagonist than Kassandra or Alexios.

What would you recommend? I haven’t played an AC since Black Flag.


I'd recommend both. I've said that Origins is the true successor to Black Flag in the open world sense (breaking away from cities).

They're both beautiful games. Origins I didn't play with level scaling so the main story becomes easy if you spend a lot of time on side quests. Odyssey is so big, the side quests can become a nuisance.

That's an odd way of looking at it. Odyssey has more in common with Black Flag, but I wouldn't call either game a "true successor." They're too different.

So, we'll very much be getting away from the Assassins part of all this, which i'm fine with. It is becoming more of an RPG/badass fighting game set in the world of assassins' creed.

Odyssey was a ton of fun, just could never finish it. Looking forward to this.

I've liked the direction the games have gone now, but the title just makes no sense anymore....

Fortunately, I was always terrible at quiet and stealthy. I just killed everyone anyways

This game sets up perfectly for me.

Sounds like this rendition will be similar to a Mount and Blade game.

If they wanted to, they could probably set up a pretty fun Mordhau style pvp mode at some point down the road.
