With the latest, and lengthy, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla video providing a closer look at some of the stunning old-timey England environments found within, in addition to the brutal combat and settlement building. Plus, a very Skyrim-like skill-tree and perk system. And the ability to sick your pet wolf onto enemies for a little throat rip action. Which, is all we needed to know really.

And confirmation that you can wield Excalibur. Check it out.



Alongside the impressive look at the latest Creed Ubisoft has also revealed the PC specs broken down into resolution, frame-rate, and detail settings. Interestingly there's no 4K 60 on Ultra option - but, as the series has done so in the past Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will ship with a benchmark tool so you can see just how well your rig handles all those fur-laden jackets, face paint, and braided beards.

Ubisoft has partnered with AMD for this release so no doubt it will run great on a Ryzen CPU and Radeon GPU. On that front Ubisoft notes that several CPU optimisations were made this time around.

It's quite the hardware breakdown.
