Assassin's Creed Valhalla was finally officially revealed this week, and fans all over are excited for the next chapter in the series. A few of the rumors and leaks leading up to the reveal have now been confirmed, including the fact that Assassin's Creed Valhalla is based on Viking-life and soaked in Norse history.

Players will take control of Eivor and set sail from Norway to England in Valhalla, raiding and pillaging along the way, and making a settlement in the British Isles. Norse history is very rich, and just as the Assassin's Creed franchise has always done, Valhalla will look to historical information to pull from to make the game a unique and breathtaking experience. This much is clear from the Collector's Edition.
Just as soon as the game was announced, Ubisoft laid out the particulars surrounding the Collector's Edition for Valhalla.

There is a lot to unpack in the bundle, but there are also helpful hints that show what Valhalla may look like as a final product. Each detail of the Collector's Edition, from the large state of Eivor to the in-game content, helps tell the story of Valhalla.
When Valhalla was first revealed, specifics such as the protagonist and the setting were confirmed. But with the game not being released until Holiday of 2020, fans are looking for any additional details.

An interview with Ashraf Ismael, the game's creative director, has also helped fill in facts about what this installment of Assassin's Creed will look like, including the idea that Valhalla will continue with the modern-day setting protagonist and that that hero will again be Layla Hassan (the modern-day protagonist of Assassin's Creed Origins and Assassin's Creed Odyssey). The Collector's Edition itself not only confirms some of the information that has been revealed in the announcement and or the interviews and questions, but it also shows off interesting tidbits that fans may not have been aware of.


The centerpiece of the Valhalla Collector's Edition may also be the most informative piece of the set. The 30cm Eivor statue reveals the fem protagonist in Valhalla. The cinematic trailer that was used to announce Valhalla only showed the male Eivor protagonist. However, just like Assassin's Creed Odyssey, players will be able to choose between a male and a female protagonist for Valhalla. It's definitely intriguing that fans are able to see this female Eivor in replica statue form, even before she is shown in-game.

Fans will also find it important that both the male and female Eivor are canon in Valhalla. According to tweets from the narrative director of the game, Darby McDevitt, players will be able to select the male or female protagonist from the beginning of the game and their story will be told from then on. In Odyssey, the other protagonist would still remain in the story as an NPC, but in Valhalla that won't be the case, it seems. Because both characters are names Eivor, players simply select the female or male version, and then the story will begin.
