The Way the Hidden Ones Tie Into Assassin’s Creed Valhalla
However, even in the event that you don’t want to completely dedicate to rooting the Order from England, the Hidden Ones still meet a somewhat important purpose in Valhalla: catching new players up to speed. Even if it takes place before all the matches, Valhalla stays the twelfth mainline title within an decade-long franchise.
In Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, the Hidden Ones and Order of Ancients have to evolve into the Assassin Brotherhood and Templar Order respectively.
Briefly seen in a current story trailer for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, the Hidden Ones haven’t been mentioned quite often ahead of this game’s release. The team was set in Assassin’s Creed Origins, behaving as the precursors to the Assassin Brotherhood. I caught up with Assassin’s Creed Valhalla game director Eric Baptizat and narrative director Darby McDevitt to inquire the way the group ties right into Eivor’s quest.
“Rest assured, there is really quite a large list of goals to take down,” McDevitt said. Baptizat added that murdering these targets lets you loot their medallions, which when taken back to the Hidden Ones Bureau, permits you to unlock new Assassin-based skills and tidbits of lore.
“[The Hidden Ones] actually sail to England and they put up a Bureau with your permission in the settlement because they tell you they have got this big task ahead of these,” McDevitt said. The Hidden Ones Want to get the Order of Ancients (the precursors to the Templar Order) from England, and since the Order is causing problems such as Eivor, the Hidden Ones and Eivor’s Viking clan decide to group up to carry them outside.
In this regard, expect to hear some familiar names in Valhalla. McDevitt said that the Hidden One Bureau will talk about prominent Assassins, for example Bayek and Aya. It’s not just titles from yesteryear either. As I saw within my six-hour hands-on with Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Rebecca Crane–an ally of the original present-day protagonist, Desmond Miles, that hasn’t been featured in Assassin’s Creed as Syndicate–shows up to assist the current present-day protagonist, Layla Hassan. Baptizat teased that there could be , but wouldn’t confirm titles. But if Rebecca is all about, there’s a good chance that Shaun Hastings isn’t too far behind.
