Assassins Creed Valhalla – Introduction and Game Settings

Assassins Creed Valhalla is a highly anticipated game released in 2020. It is a Role-Playing action game developed by Ubisoft Montreal. This twelfth installment of the Assassins Creed Series is published by Ubisoft and is a successor of the Assassins Creed Odyssey. Set during the Viking invasion in Britain in the year 872-878AD, you will be able to control Eivor Varinsdottir, the Viking Raider who becomes a part of the forever boiling conflict between the Assassins and the Templars. The Assassins want to fight for freedom and peace, while the Templar always desires control.

Although Assassins Creed Valhalla has been out for more than six months now, I have finally started playing. The Assassins Creed Valhalla Series will be Complete Quick Guide to complete the game, but at the same time, we will try to get all the Chests and the loot that this game has to offer.

But first, let’s quickly jump into the Minimum and Recommended Settings required to play the game.

There are three Game editions to choose from, i.e., Standard Edition, Gold Edition, and the Ultimate Edition.

Game Settings

Starting the game first, once we are on the Main menu. Click the Options button and select Graphics Quality. I have set everything to Ultra as the GTX 1080 can handle it because of its 8GB graphics memory, a Recommended setting for this game.

After setting up the Graphics, please go through the rest of the settings like Control, Gameplay, Interface, Sound and tweak it according to your needs.

After that, come back to the Main Menu and click on the New Game option. Select your Exploration difficulty. I have chosen the Default Explorer option being Adventurer the easiest and Pathfinder to be the toughest with minimum resources.

Select the Combat Difficulty from among the four options Skald, Viking, Berserker, and the hardest being Dredger. We will be going with the Vikingr difficulty.

Since Assassins Creed Valhalla also has stealth mechanics, we will select the Stealth difficulty also from the three options. We are going with the Assassin Difficulty. Select and hit enter.

After this, we will be headed straight towards the first Main Storyline Prologue mission.

That’s it for now
Until next time…
