"Better to fight and fall than to live without hope." - The Volsunga Saga, 13'th century 873 AD. We're well past the age of Kassandra and Bayek, but three centuries still to go until Altair. (If you watch the Vikings TV series, you're in end-of-Season 5 territory.) No Spam, Marvel superheroes or Kratos & Son here; as always, Ubisoft plays it as straight and historically accurate as the story arc will allow. Expect everything and the kitchen sink gameplay-wise in the world of our hero Eivor; Customization, conquest battles, naval battles, settlement building, your choice of romances, tons of miscellaneous activities - even rap battles. (Yeah, you read that right.) Visit Dark Ages London, Winchester and York. And yes, you will see how a Viking can not only perform, but perform well, as a traditional sneaky Assassin.
