Ashraf Ismail , the creative director of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla has spoken about the hidden blade and infiltration in the game.
We wanted to look at the old games and see how cool those games were and learn what’s great about the updated formula. There was an identity and originality that we wanted to bring back to Valhalla “
We continue with the idea that Eivor [the protagonist of Valhalla] is not a trained assassin. Eivor is a Viking who receives this brutal weapon and has to learn very fast “
“At the beginning of the experience, Eivor will learn a technique that, with the right rhythm … can immediately kill virtually anyone.”
The importance of infiltration: “The idea that a Norse person or a Viking is in a place where they don’t want him” will cause them to have to hide in the crowd and go undercover sometimes. “
