After the video-game industry’s major E3 event was nixed because of the coronavirus crisis, a new multi-month event has stepped forward to provide an outlet for news, demos and free playable content.
While the Assaassin’s Creed Valhalla debut cinematic trailer yesterday focused on the male option for our Viking lead, Eivor, Ubisoft did give several peeks at the female Eivor. Like with Odyssey before it, Valhalla will give us a choice to play a male or female character and both look quite willing and able to split skulls. The most obvious look at her is the figurine in the Collector’s Edition, but she snuck into some screenshots too.

We’ve got the expected additions of a new battle pass, the next ranked series, and a new Legend – this time it’s Loba, a master thief – but there’s also a mysterious new addition called the ‘Season Quest.’
The hottest craze amongst GTA Online players is donning a green alien suit, picking up a baseball bat, and riding around with their alien friends in a van looking for people to beat up.
