The following guide to Assassin's Creed Valhalla contains complete information about the latest installment of the popular action series. Our guide will help you learn all the basic gameplay mechanics, complete the game, find 100% of the secrets and unlock the platinum trophy.

The game guide and the FAQ chapter are the first major section. You will learn about the basics of combat, stealth, exploration, sailing, expanding the settlement, or developing Eivor.

AC Valhalla: Starting tips

Below you will find some of the most important tips for people starting their adventure with AC Valhalla:

  1. You can choose separate difficulty levels for combat, stealth and exploration. You don't have to choose the same settings for all game elements. If, for example, you only have problems with combat, you can lower their difficulty. You can change the difficulty level at any time.
  2. In addition to completing the quests, you can also do events and explore the map. This will allow you to gain experience points faster and consequently get skill points quicker. You need them to increase Eivor's power so they can explore more difficult regions.
  3. Find as many skill books as possible to unlock new skills. They can significantly increase Eivor's effectiveness in combat, including stronger bosses or legendary animals.
  4. Improve the main character's gear on a regular basis. You can do this in two ways – improve the quality of the gear by bringing ingots to Gunnar the blacksmith in the settlement and spend regular crafting materials to buy more upgrades. The items' statistics will increase and you will gain access to rune slots.
  5. Plan the first buildings in the settlement well, as the building materials obtained from raiding the monasteries are limited. We recommend building a Hidden Ones' office as soon as possible – it will unlock access to the extensive plotline in which you hunt members of the Order of the Ancients.
  6. Save the status of the game before each conversation – you may be forced to make important choices. You make a lot of important decisions throughout the game. Apart from small choices, you will also have important ones, which the game does not distinguish on the screen in any way. A bad choice can lead to the death of an NPC or angry the person you are talking to. Saving the game will reduce the risk of a negative consequence.

The action of the game takes place in 9th century England. You play as the leader of one of the Viking clans – Eivor. The protagonist decides to find a new place to live for their people. That is why head out of Norway. After crossing the North Sea, they reach the British Isles. It turns out that they have found themselves in the center of the fight for this resource-rich land.

In terms of the mechanics, the title does not differ significantly from the previous two entries. During your adventure, you will traverse an open world filled with different kinds of activities.
