Rap battles between Vikings in the next Assassin’s Creed
A few days have passed since the announcement of Assassin’s Creed Valhallathe new chapter in the hugely successful action-adventure video game series by Ubisoft, and information about the title is already starting to spread. The last curious novelty concerns the presence of a sort of “rap battles” within the game.
Rap in Valhalla?
In Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla we will have the opportunity to take on the role of Eivora Norwegian warrior who took part in the invasions of England in the 9th century. The gender of the protagonist can be chosen according to preferences and will directly influence the plot of the game.
England is divided into several states: Northumbria, Mercia, Anglia eastern and Wessexthe latter governed by the King Alfred the Great, particularly engaged in stopping the Danish armies. During the raid, the protagonist will come into contact with the Occult and will join the fight against the Order of the Ancients. Unfortunately, the details on the plot are not many but, from the official description of the game, we discover the presence of a curious one rap battle among Vikings, presumably a mini-game present in the new chapter.
From the official website we read in fact: “Cross the icy North Sea, discover and conquer the lands of the fragmented kingdoms of England. Take part in activities such as hunting and drinking contests, or discover the traditional Norse art of banter: a “Viking rap battle” in which you can bring your opponents to tears. “
We still don’t know how this bizarre feature will play out but it has undoubtedly stimulated the curiosity of the players.
Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla sIt will be available for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Google Stadia, PC, as well as Xbox Series X and PalyStation 5 towards the end of the year.
