The Gameplay From Assassin's Creed Valhalla May Be The Closest We Ever Witness An Actual Live Viking Invasion

Welp.  Let's raid England, fellow savages. Pagan Temples, Roman ruins, Saxon fortresses.  Time to pitch that Dark Age tent and Leaf your Erikson with some solid historic European gameplay.  Still, it's another year, another Assassin's Creed drop of an EPIC where the footage looks absolutely incredible.  Odyssey, Origins, even Assassin's Creed III with the American Revolution all looked like absolute game changers in their trailers.  Did they hold up? Depends who who you ask.  Just looked up that AC III got a 94% approval rating and while, yes, talking to Ben Franklin in a pub about bagging ol' bags is fun, it was just a tad bit repetitive for my tastes.   We'll see if Valhalla holds water.

The gameplay is one thing but, it still blows my mind you can basically watch all the cut scenes from games and the storyline will be better than your average flick.  Tell me this isn't 

RELATED: Check out The Last Of Us as a film (one of the greatest games in recent history) and tell me this isn't worthy of all the awards.  

Now let's dance in Verdansk.

Let's ride.
