Assassin’s Creed Ragnarök Rumor

April 5, 2019

An Easter egg has been discovered in Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 game sparking rumors of the next installment to the Assassin’s Creed series. What does The Division 2 game have to do with Assassin’s Creed you say? Well, both games are under the same studio, Ubisoft. Ubisoft has done teasers similar to this before in previous games to give the fans a hint on what is to come.

This discovery is based on a screenshot provided by the user, AlifMorrisonudin in the Assassin’s Creed Wiki Community. It shows a poster labeled “Valhalla” and a king or warrior holding a staff and a sphere. Seems like nothing to go on right? However, if you zoom up the sphere looks to be the Apple of Eden. The Apple of Eden plays a huge part in the Assassin’s Creed franchise.

Still, this seems like a long shot for hopefuls like me wanting Assassin’s Creed to dive desperately into the Viking Age. Back up a year, and some people might recall a couple pieces of concept art referred to as Assassin’s Creed Ragnarök swirling the Internet from a Ubisoft artist, Michel Nucera. In each piece, we see dragon longships and characters resembling Vikings. Of course, that rumor was debunked and said that it had nothing to do with the franchise.

Could all of this be nothing? Most likely, but it is fun to speculate and wish for the Vikings to come to Assassin’s Creed. I would love to get a story with King Harald Fairhair being shown as a Templar during his control of Norway. As big as the map is in Odyssey, would we be able to sail to Iceland in our longship? So many possibilities! What do you think? Let me know in the comments below!


New Viking Ship Discovery

March 25, 2019

During a press event at the Midgard Viking Center in Norway on Monday, a newly discovered Viking ship was announced. We got news of a Viking ship that was found in a burial site in the Vestfold county of Norway from the Minister of Climate and Environment, Ola Elvestuen. Once again, the georadar technology proved to be successful to create this historic day. It is exciting to see what this technology will produce in the future as it has advanced archaeological finds.
