It seems that around 30 minutes of actual gameplay from the upcoming Assassins Creed: Valhalla has been leaked online, many sources of the video have already been taken down by Ubisoft but some still remain. Below I have linked to a video that has still managed to stay up and likely will for a little while longer, and it’s also much higher quality than most of everyone else.

After the disappointing cinematic CGI trailer disguised as a “gameplay” trailer during Microsoft’s Xbox Series X gameplay event in May, many of us were calling for some more actual gameplay, well here’s 30 minutes of it! Obviously this is an early build still, so there’s quite a few bugs that I spotted, but hey it’s early gameplay right? Check out the 30 minutes of gameplay leak for Assassins Creed Valhalla below with thanks to Youtube user Reinonymous:

If you ask me, despite all the changes the team is making from Assassins Creed Odyssey to reduce bloat, it still looks a lot like AC: Odyssey anyway. I also find that it looks a lot like The Witcher 3, but maybe that's just the English setting rather than Greek which just matches the medieval vibe from The Witcher series.

It’s unclear whether this was leaked early by a playtester, or whether this was gameplay planned for Microsoft’s upcoming July event, it’s also very possible that this was even earlier footage captured a long time ago. There’s a lot that's unclear here so we should wait until something official from Ubisoft comes out, but we can still talk about our initial thoughts at least!

So what do you think? Does it look like an improvement? What don’t you like? Are you still excited for Assassins Creed Valhalla? Let us know!

Given the success in emulating Witcher 3 in 5 years. I hope the devs starts emulating cyberpunk 2077 right now itself, at-least it wouldn't take them these many years..

This leakster did what Ubisoft couldn't do at Xbox presentation which is to show us actual gameplay.

Ubisoft keeps taking down these video, but new ones will appear.
So just do a Google or YouTube search for "Valhalla leaked gameplay" and you'll get plenty of videos.

Ubi's event is on the 12th July so it won't be long before we will see any differences between this earlier build and the final product anyway. With Horizon: ZD and CP2077 coming in August & November I doubt I'll be interested in another large open-world game until sometime next year now, even though I was originally interested in Valhalla.

why is everyone suprised here?
thats how ac games were since beggining, 3same gams then new engine with new look, ac1,2, brother hood and revelation same game just reskined they didnt even change the desmond model so all 3 of them looks same but then connor and edward dosnt even tho they are all supposed to be desmonds ancestors, then you have ac3, ac4, rogue, liberatioon which are all reskins and then we had unity and syndicate, Valhalla being same as previous 2 games was expected expecially since they are trilogy, i would be more suprised if visuals dosnt change in next one which ever comes after Valhala

While I admit I was expecting pretty much the same sort of thing, I wasn't expecting to see the return of the spartan kick move. If they intended to reuse moves/animations in future games they probably shouldn't have named one of the moves after a faction from AC:Odyssey.

Some "fans" of the series were complaying how bland and repetetive the gameplay got in the older AC titles. Looks like it's happening again as Ubi fail to come up with something actually new and interesting. Just my opinion.

Honestly it looks same old reskinned Ubis*it game, same as Origins and Odyssey. I just wonder if it'll be same boring grindfest or have they learned.
