The settlement you'll be coming back to time and time again forms an important part of the experience in Assassin's Creed Valhalla. Situated in England, the game's creative director has given us a quick glimpse of what to expect when we get our hands on the cross-gen PlayStation 5 title later this year. Ashraf Ismail states that this is a screenshot of the stunning English countryside where you'll be setting up shop and giving your family a home.
Detailed in a tweet, he provides context by saying: "Spend a lazy Sunday fishing at the docks, consult with your war chief, or check on your people. Home is where the heart is." We don't mind if we do, Ashraf. It has been confirmed that Assassin's Creed Valhalla will feature mini-games such as fishing, while the homestead will form the centrepiece of the decisions you make throughout the game. In a recent Eurogamer interview, it was also mentioned that weddings can take place while relationships can be forged between clans. You'll also be able to upgrade the settlement with barracks, a tattoo parlour, and a blacksmith.
Assassin's Creed Valhalla is, of course, set in the past, but doesn't England still look like when you take a look out the window? Convince us that's true in the comments below.
