The Viking assassin
Eivor is the hero of the video game Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, the twelfth opus of the famous series of video games from Ubisoft Studios. This new opus takes place in the Viking era in the ninth century and the player embodies Eivor. He can be a man or a woman in this new version of the game and he is a warrior who leads a Viking troop from Norway to attack the kingdoms of the current United Kingdom, Mercy, Wessex, Northumbria and East-Angland. The plot of the game is based on history but the scenario may sometimes evoke the presence of characters from Norse mythology such as Odin or Loki.
