The Assassin’s Creed franchise has a long history of taking its players to new, interesting locations. Players have set foot in old London, ancient Greece, and even the long-lost city of Atlantis. However, it seems like the franchise’s next stop may not be as pleasant. According to a reputable Assassin’s Creed leaker, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla could be bringing its players to the Norse realm of Muspelheim next.
While you may have never heard of Muspelheim, you’ve almost definitely seen it or its guardian at some point. Muspelheim is the Norse land of fire, which may make you think of Hell but it’s really not. Think of it instead as an elemental plane, filled with lakes and rivers of glowing lava. Surtr, a massive fire giant that wields a flaming sword, guards Muspelheim. For those unaware, Surtr also makes an appearance in Thor: Ragnarok.
Muspelheim being the next DLC for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla was leaked on Twitter by J0nathan, who has leaked other information about Assassin’s Creed titles in the past. In the tweet, they mention Muspelheim as a world location found within Assassin’s Creed Valhalla‘s code. Naturally, this should be seen as confirmation just yet. The land could have been under development by Ubisoft but plans changed, leaving some wayward code behind.
What else is coming for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla
Ubisoft has paid a great deal of attention to Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, giving the game a wealth of post-launch content. However, another expansion for Valhalla would be a surprise, considering that Ubisoft has never supported an Assassin’s Creed title two years after its release. That being said, Ubisoft could be slowing down the development process for the next Assassin’s Creed title, giving Valhalla a bit more time to shine.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla currently has two large pieces of DLC planned. The first, Wrath of the Druids, will bring players to Ireland on May 13. The second, The Siege of Paris is expected to launch sometime this summer.
