My favorite thing about the Assassin’s Creed video game franchise is looking at a historic building or statue and thinking to yourself, “I bet I can climb that.” It is only after you’ve finally reached the top that you remember that you are on a quest. Then it’s back to the bloody business of influencing historical events as an assassin. The games I have enjoyed most are based on eras I am interested in and have knowledge of, like Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate set in Victorian England. The most recent game in the series, Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla, is set during the Viking raids on England in the Early Middle Ages. Immerse yourself in Viking culture and prepare for battle against the Anglo-Saxons by reading the following recommendations.
