New Assassin's Creed Valhalla screenshots

The senior art director of Assassin's Creed Valhalla, Raphael Lacoste, has shared some screens showing off its vistas, which were presumably taken in photomode. They show aurora borealis over a Viking settlement, Eivor riding up to a stone circle at dawn or dusk, a church overlooking a tree-lined river, and some other pretty scenery players will no doubt ride past or parkour over at high speed. The images come via Twitter and are quite compressed, but Lacoste promises to share some 4K versions later.

Lacoste is currently the franchise art director for the Assassin's Creed games, and previously served as art director on Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag and Assassin's Creed Origins. You can have a look at his ArtStation page to see some of his work on Ancient Egypt.

Assassin's Creed Valhalla will be out on November 17. Here are its system requirements, and here's 15 of Valhalla's sidequests reviewed.

Jody's first computer was a Commodore 64, so he remembers having to use a code wheel to play Pool of Radiance. A former music journalist who interviewed everyone from Giorgio Moroder to Trent Reznor, Jody also co-hosted Australia's first radio show about videogames, Zed Games. He's written for Rock Paper Shotgun, The Big Issue, GamesRadar, Zam, Glixel, Five Out of Ten Magazine, and, whose cheques with the bunny logo made for fun conversations at the bank. Jody's first article for PC Gamer was about the audio of Alien Isolation, published in 2015, and since then he's written about why Silent Hill belongs on PC, why Recettear: An Item Shop's Tale is the best fantasy shopkeeper tycoon game, and how weird Lost Ark can get. Jody edited PC Gamer Indie from 2017 to 2018, and he eventually lived up to his promise to play every Warhammer videogame.
