Assassin's Creed Valhalla (opens in new tab)'s creative director Ashraf Ismail has confirmed you'll be able to visit Stonehenge in the shoes of Viking assassin Eivor. 

As spotted by VG247 (opens in new tab), Ismail responded to a fan on Twitter who asked if we'll be able to go to Stonehenge in the upcoming adventure. After the first cinematic trailer debuted (opens in new tab) last week with our first look at the Viking action, we also learned that Valhalla is set in both Norway and England, but for the majority of your journey as Eivor, you'll be in the UK. Spread across four different kingdoms in the 9th Century, you'll be able to explore major cities such as London, Winchester, and York (opens in new tab)

As one of the most famous prehistoric monuments in the UK, it's exciting to see we'll be able to visit it during the Dark Ages, and perhaps get closer to it than we can in reality. As it is such a famous landmark, I have to wonder if it will factor into the story, and if you'll be able to climb up it in classic Assassin's Creed style. Just like the famous statues and buildings in Assassin's Creed Odyssey, and the pyramids in Assassin's Creed Origins, I can just imagine it could be the spot of some significance. 

We've learned a wealth of information about Valhalla over the past week, with confirmation that you'll be able to play as a man or woman (opens in new tab), it's being worked on by 15 different studios (opens in new tab), and is set to release Holiday 2020 (opens in new tab) on Xbox Series X (opens in new tab) and PS5 (opens in new tab) as well as current consoles. 

The first gameplay of Valhalla is set to be shown during the upcoming Xbox Series X stream (opens in new tab), where we'll also be seeing other global developers (opens in new tab) showcase gameplay on the next-gen console. 

Excited for the upcoming Viking adventure? Here's where you can preorder Assassin's Creed Valhalla (opens in new tab).

I started out writing for the games section of a student-run website as an undergrad, and continued to write about games in my free time during retail and temp jobs for a number of years. Eventually, I earned an MA in magazine journalism at Cardiff University, and soon after got my first official role in the industry as a content editor for Stuff magazine. After writing about all things tech and games-related, I then did a brief stint as a freelancer before I landed my role as a staff writer here at GamesRadar+. Now I get to write features, previews, and reviews, and when I'm not doing that, you can usually find me lost in any one of the Dragon Age or Mass Effect games, tucking into another delightful indie, or drinking far too much tea for my own good.
