During today's Inside Xbox presentation, Ubisoft's newly announced Viking game got a trailer focused on in-game footage (compared to the previous pre-rendered trailer). You can see the impressive footage above, showcasing many of Valhalla's key elements, including combat, raiding, longships, and more. 

Though each Assassin's Creed title is traditionally approachable regardless of your history with the series, fans may notice a couple details from the trailer stand out. First of all, the hero Eivor has a raven instead of the traditional eagle. Second, as in the previous trailer, we again see Eivor with a hidden blade (an iconic weapon you could not wield in Odyssey), implying that the Assassins as an organization are likely to be more prominent in this entry.
