Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s Weird England Explained

تم نشره في 2020/11/22
Assassin's Creed: Valhalla is full of strange history, so we've broken down some of the most interesting periods where the Vikings roamed the lands of Mercia, Wessex and beyond.
Assassin's Creed: Valhalla takes players to England, Norway and even beyond, but while the world is stunningly rendered both on PC, PS5 and Xbox Series X/S, there's a lot of secrets hiding within the virtual British Isles where most of the game takes place.
Even the names of in-game enemies Eivor takes on offer some hints to some peculiar parts of English history, and may potentially link the world to the future DLC, Wrath of the Druids.

  • Go get Excalibur and you'll get an in game reason in why Stonehenge exists.

  • The major fail of this game is a the female character voice actress voicing the charter like like she was bored the entire time.

    • I can't stand the way she talks when she's high on shrooms. Yeeesss... let's aaask the raaabbits... It's just annoying.

  • It’s summer in Lincolnshire, but cross the border into Yorkshire and its winter. The churches and cathedrals are from a much later period. Good gameplay though, but preferred the world of Odyssey, which I still play occasionally.

  • Rome withdrew from Britain in 1410 AD?!?!

    • No haha, the video is wrong! 410, not 1410, although it started in about 388.

  • I used to live in a village near Hadrian's wall and it even had a viking name, some super cool stuff in this game

  • North of hadrians wall currently is northumberland my home county. Although we did name a town wallsend as thats where the wall ends

  • 410 AD not 1410 🤦🏻‍♂️

  • The anglo-saxons were settlers, but the vikings were invaders?

    • The Anglo saxons also invaded after the romans left

    • Yeah! There's a difference 😁

  • Absolutely wonderful video!

  • How many Assassin's Creed games, i mean even FIFA and Pes have fewer titles, this has become laughable. Assassin's Greed is a more suitable title.

  • Putting Stonehenge where Avebury belongs and Winchester where Amesbury belongs and thinking that the whole South coast is the White Cliffs of Dover pissed md off and where are the plains?

  • Great video!

  • Pretending like you knew any of this 😂 most English school kids never touch the Dark Ages and or the early Mediaeval period beyond a few primary school lessons on thatched roofs. When you get the millennium in which the Romans left wrong in your opening statements and don't notice in the edit, you literally have no business telling anyone about history.

  • This was awesome do more

  • Very interesting thanks for sharing!

  • assassins creed died after the end of AC2. bye bye

    • Another toxic fanboy strikes down their mighty wrath.

    • AsSAssInS CrEed DieD aFtEr Ac2. bYE bYE

  • I can't wait to make it all the way North and explore Hadrians Wall in Valhalla! Went out in the real world and explored near Sycamore Gap last week after a little inspiration from the early hours of AC. Thoroughly loving exploring this world. Cracking video as always, Dave!

  • Ezio trilogy is still the best assassin's creed

  • Please make part 2 😍😍

  • 0:40 410 not 1410

  • This is just full of the exaggerated burliness of a Nordic warrior

  • This is all well and great information, but... how kick ass are the kill animations in this game? When I got the two handed sword I was blown away by how amazing all the dismemberments were. It's just such a blast to play. And then like the finishing moves for any of the higher ranking characters I think all of them are unique and they're all awesome. So much weird detail and thought went into this game.

  • Big up York! Born and grew up there!

  • Anyone watch the last kingdom on netflix ?

    • @blad90 Ima be straight I hated sigurd in valhalla for so many reasons, mostly because of unanswered questions. Got the good ending a day all.

    • @Alou D I have just ended the game and just wtf to that cliff hanger, assassin's creed felt like the old days but better.

    • That’s my show man...Bloodhair.

    • @Noel Salgado the game and show are to alike in some aspects

    • I am Uhtred son of Uhtred

  • The character is full of the exaggerated brutality of his era

  • Hi

  • I think there was an error in the narrator’s script: he said Rome left in 1410 A.D. it lead to a fractured and splintered England by 873 A.D. That doesn’t make any sense since 1410 would be after the latter. Did anyone else pick this up?

    • @Raeed Chowdhury roman civilization ended in 1453 ad

    • @Callum Fisher just a couple of kewl history dudes ❤️

    • @Jacob Newson Yes. I was thinking of Byzantium. Apologies.

    • @Callum Fisher I’d need to look it up to be sure... but I think you’d be thinking of the eastern Roman Empire, the Byzantines

    • @Raeed Chowdhury Well, not entirely. Rome lasted until sometime in the 1400’s. He probably got confused.

  • Bought on pc xbox and ps5 waiting for switch version

  • Good vid

  • The Long man of Wilmington wasn't vandalized by a football team. The people responsible used a football pitch line marker to add the uh.. body part. I can see how the mistake was made, but just pointing that out.

    • Is the place a legit site? Like who knows that long nman was actually from the 90's

  • Finally got my ps5 to output 4k on my 1440p monitor and it looks amazing

  • Outrageous amount of ads. Piss take

  • $4.99 complete Edition 👍

  • Given that it's common knowledge that the AC series takes a lot of liberties with history it's really nice to see a vid like this that points out the few bits that are close-ish to being legit.

    • @Fabrizio Silveri they used to care more. i still remember how they tried to limit the main characters weapons to only historical accuracy ones, Like how they apologized for Connors rope dart addition simply because they thought it was a cool weapon, but new it didnt exsists at the time or place. They also used to say that they simply added hoods due to the image of the series, but knew there didnt exists those types of hoods in the time period Etc etc Now they dont seem to give a shit woth the main characters, but side characters they seem to be accurat now and then

    • Does AC takes that many liberties, though? Compared to other historical tales, including lots of historical fantasy books and movies, AC is relatively good at keeping the history reasonable, I'd say. It's not history, of course, but even the early AC were better than most Hollywood movies on the middle ages

  • 0:20 what is that armor set? I've seen it on videos but cannot find online which it is or where? Do you have to buy it or?

    • @Leanderm17 Yep

    • I believe that’s the armorset u need amazon prime to get

  • Hmmmmmmmmm.....

  • GET SO MANY FIFA 19/20 & 21 MODS ON MY CHANNEL! UP TO 2000 NEW FACES ADDED IN THE GAME, 200 NEW BOOTS, SO MANY REAL NEW TATTOOS, 2021/22 KITS AND FULL UPDATE ETC!!s

  • This game is pretty historically inaccurate, the anglo-saxons are the "bad guys" whereas the vikings were the invading bad guys .

    • @Sid Ghosh My family is from Cornwall and I dont believe we have any genetic similarities with either groups you listed.

    • @Me Incorrect. Only 30% of English people have Germanic DNA. Most English people today are Britons with Roman admixture.

    • @Me I'd just like to add that it was quite a few generations before the Vikings came, not "a generation or so". For example, the first Christian king of Mercia died two centuries before the start of this game.

    • @Me impressive and thank you for the history lesson 👏 but its also true to point out that Scandinavians had traded with the Anglo saxons for years and knew of their wealth and as a stronger nation did decide to invade and take much of Britain's wealth for themselves , they would steal gold silver cattle and even slaves and take them back to Scandinavia Norway etc . And they mainly lived south of Liverpool after the introduction of danelaw, living in places such as East anglia, lincoln , York, Derby, nottingham etc .

    • I highly doubt the Vikings thought of themselves as “bad guys” most of them were farmers and families that by this period lived side by side with the Anglo-Saxons from basically Liverpool upwards. The Saxons were Germanic invaders themselves and pretty much wiped out the celts in England although no one knows if through war or just sheer numbers but we do know it’s very rare for English people to have Briton DNA. Most English are what’s known as Anglo-Scandinavian. The Saxons were Germanic who until a generation or so before the Viking invasion worshipped the same pantheon as the Vikings. Wednesday being Wodens days for example which was the Germanic pronunciation of Odin. The Saxons were just as warrior like as the Vikings and just as war hungry. Before the Viking invasion they were killing each other regularly. It was only as a direct result of the Viking invasion did the kingdom’s unify into England as we know it. Aside from the actual soldiers and raiders most the “Vikings” were just regular traders looking for another life who were attacked by the Saxons because they didn’t believe in their god. Both were bellends, both were invaders, both killed their own as well as each other and both were good and bad.

  • You cannot take this game seriously from the historic point when Vikings raid and kill only soldiers otherwise "game over" screen appears. There is more history in "The Last Kingdom" and "Vikings" TV Series than this game.. If you want to learn without reading actual history book, watch TV. If you want to enjoy open world game play AC Valhalla. Simple.

    • Yeah as you are seeing from the Vikings side of view but no one there was write or wrong as Vikings wanted home but their way was wrong. The Anglo Saxons were wrong as they discriminated Danes and weren't polite.

  • Have a great day

  • Early

  • Okay

  • I know this game amazing

  • Gosh.
