Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is less than a month away, and based on what we’ve seen so far, it seems like it has a lot in common with Assassin’s Creed Origins and Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. Not only will the game offer an enormous map, stuffed to the gills with quests to uncover and items to procure, but it will also put brutal combat front and center — appropriate, considering its “Vikings-in-medieval-England” setting.

While I’ve gone hands-on with Assassin’s Creed Valhalla before, I recently had an opportunity to take my deepest dive yet: six uninterrupted hours in the Ledecestrescire region of Mercia. This represents a relatively early part of the game, and as such, I was able to see some of the basics in action: combat, stealth, story missions, side quests and character-building.
