The series will follow Viking warrior Eivor, who “observes a village raided by a neighboring kingdom”, reads the official description of Song Of Glory. “Bloodshed and mayhem erupt as she seizes the attack in her own favor – but will her victory be a blessing to her clan or a terrible curse? Elsewhere, another Viking searches for a different kind of prize, one of crucible steel.”
The three-issue tale will be written by Cavan Scott (best known for Star Wars Adventures and the comic adaptation of the Vikings TV series), illustrated by Martin Tunica and colored by Michael Atiyeh. It is also important to note that while Eivor will be a female character in the comic books, players will get to switch between a male or female Eivor at any point throughout the game.
In other Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla news, Ubisoft recently released a gameplay trailer for the upcoming release. The game will launch on November 17 for PC, PS4, Xbox One and Google Stadia, as well as on PS5 and Xbox Series X thereafter. Pre-order bundles can be found here.
