Assassin’s Creed Red is Set To Be An Evolution of Valhalla

Assassin’s Creed Red will transport players to Feudal Japan, and it sounds like a beefier twin of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.

Assassin’s Creed Red is the next addition to the Assassin’s Creed universe, and Ubisoft looks to show players their take on Japan during Feudal times. While the newest release, Assassin’s Creed Mirage, went back to the early habits of the franchise, it seems like the new title will be upping the foundations of 2020’s Norse entry, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.

What Can Players Expect From Assassin’s Creed Red?

Players can expect Assassin’s Creed Red to be a similar experience to Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, albeit with improvements. Details have come forward from Insider Gaming on gameplay mechanics, such as combat, base building, and engine, which are all derived from the Norse entry of the franchise. However, these elements will be expanded on to improve the experience for players.

Regarding the combat gameplay, it will gravitate towards Valhalla’s hack-and-slash style but with more graphic tones, showing the brutality of each combat encounter. However, as there are two protagonists, the second being a Shinobi, players can expect many more stealth components in Assassin’s Creed Red than in Valhalla.

It has been revealed that the base building mechanic from Valhalla will be returning with upgrades to how it plays. Players will still be able to build settlements by placing buildings, but now, there is a new location players can call home known as The Hideout, which they can customize to make it their own. Lastly, the in-game engine from Valhalla, known as the Anvil game engine, is returning. However, Anvil will receive upgrades to align with the current tech and provide a more modern and fresh experience for Assassin’s Creed.

Assassin’s Creed Red wants to provide a more improved gameplay experience of what Assassin’s Creed Valhalla built for players, and Ubisoft looks to be putting in the work and care to ensure it does.
