Assassin's Creed Valhalla has another gameplay leak showing part of the map & a boss fight

Another gameplay leak of Assassin's Creed Valhalla has popped up across the internet, this time seeming to show more of the map and part of a boss fight.

Assassin's Creed: Valhalla

The footage is again being quickly removed by Ubisoft, but copies are still doing the rounds on Reddit. It's a shorter piece of footage, and while looking to be of slightly higher quality, is still stamped as a "work in progress."

Eivor journeys across the countryside and into some ruins, before being plunged into a boss fight. Here's where we see more of the mythological aspects of the game: Eivor sees a body, before lightning cracks across the sky and the mysterious figure of Cordelia approaches, asking if Eivor's come to pay respects to King Lerion. This seems to be based around Shakespeare's King Lear, as well as the legend of King Leir, whose story tells of the quarrel between Leir and his three daughters: Goneril, Regan, and Cordelia.We get a glimpse of some of Cordelia's powers, such as her ability to create copies of herself. Most of the footage is taken up with the boss fight, but after we see Eivor seemingly restoring herself by eating Blackish Purple Russula, and earning a new skill point.

We also get a brief glimpse of part of the map, showing East Anglia. Intriguingly, the area shown is listed with descriptions of its wealth, mysteries, and secrets, implying these three factors will be part of each area of the map. The inventory is also shown, with a brief glimpse of some of Eivor's equipment, and that starry skill tree makes another appearance, seemingly split into the three paths of Raven Power, Wolf Power, and Bear Power.

We'll get an in-depth look at Assassin's Creed Valhalla during Ubisoft Forward, which takes place this Sunday from 11:30am PDT / 20:30pm CEST, and we'll be sure to bring you all major news from that.

Hey, I'm Heidi! I've just finished studying a Masters in English Literature, but I've been obsessed with gaming since long before then. I began on the PS2 with Spyro, before graduating to the Xbox 360 and disappearing into Skyrim. I'm now a loyal RPG fan, but I still like to explore other genres — when I'm not playing Assassin's Creed Odyssey, or being lured back into Red Dead Redemption 2 or The Witcher 3!
