Assassin's Creed Valhalla Review
Look our for our review for Assassin's Creed Valhalla, which was delayed due to the sheer size of the game, and time required to complete.
By pushing our review back, we have given our fans a window to explore the game for themselves, and make up their own minds. It also gave fans who received the game for Christmas a chance to play without spoiler-related discussions appearing online.
Here's a sneak peak:
"There's never a dull moment whilst exploring the world of Assassin's Creed Valhalla, as it continues to find ways to surprise the player at every turn. It's the first game in the series to properly fill the open world, making it feel dynamic and life-like"
Anti-Spoiler Filter Removed
We will also be removing our Anti-Spoiler filter in January, meaning we will finally be discussing plot points and other elements that we have not yet covered.
It's a great opportunity to dive into some Isu lore and dig our teeth into the real history that inspired the game. With the help of our Partnership Program team, we will be covering fresh aspects of the game that we have not yet explored.
More opportunities and giveaways
We were recently invited to join The Mentors Guild, an official community program that bridges the gap between community members and developers.
So far, Ubisoft has so far arranged two giveaways (Valhalla codes) along with constant social media support, creating numerous opportunities for members of the AC community.
We are looking forward to working closely with Ubisoft in the new year on the program, and strive to make the most of our new position.
Ash and Col from the admin team are getting married in November!
As you might expect, the wedding may have one or two Assassin's Creed related elements!

Reboot The AC Partnership Program
In 2021, we are looking to do a soft reboot of our AC Partnership Program, a community initiative that provides a platform for content creators to shine.
We are always looking out for the next wave of passionate AC fans who are creating content on a regular basis, and we hope to discover new talent in 2021 to join us.
If you are interested, simply message our social media channels and send some of your projects our way.
These efforts provided resources for Italy in it's time of need, and brought the entire community together.
We will be doing even more fundraising in the new year, and Ashlea, who is now our Charity Project Coordinator, will be taking charge of these efforts.
Keep an eye on our social media channels for updates.
We hope that you enjoyed our last article of 2020!
As you can see, we have a lot planned for 2021, and we can't wait to get started!
See you all in the New Year!
