A new month means a bunch of new titles are heading to the PlayStation Plus subscription service and one February entry features one of gaming’s most impressive open worlds.

February’s PlayStation Plus entries have been announced and alongside Need for Speed Unbound, Tales of Arise and The Outer Worlds, subscribers can also get their hands on Ubisoft’s 2020 action RPG Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla. The 12th major instalment in the Assassin’s Creed franchise features one of gaming’s most impressive open worlds as it takes the player to 873CE Norway.

Take a look at Assassin's Creed: Valhalla below!

“Become a legendary Viking on a quest for glory,” reads the official synopsis. “Raid your enemies, grow your settlement, and build your political power.” You will take on the role of Eivor, a legendary Viking who must lead their fellow Vikings against the Anglo-Saxon kingdoms. Accompanied by a raven and armed with a weapon and a shield, Eivor (who you can choose to play as either male or female) lives in a world inspired by Norse mythology and during a time of conflict between the Templars and the Assassins.

With many fans agreeing that Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla is seriously underrated, this will be the perfect time to pick it up via PlayStation Plus. As of now, the entry sits at a “mostly positive” rating on Steam with fans praising its excellent RPG elements and Norse-inspired story.

However, one feature that appears to be hit or miss is the size of the game. Spoiler alert… it is huge. One player agreed when they wrote: “The main problem with Valhalla is that it is so. DAMN. Big.” With not only a lengthy campaign estimated to take around 60 hours to complete, in classic Ubisoft fashion, it also includes a plethora of side quests, secrets and puzzles to uncover.

Another player answered to complaints that the game focused more on Norse mythology and Vikings than the assassin element: “Best Viking RPG out there. Take Assassin’s Creed out of the title and no one would have ever said a bad word about it.”

Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla is now free to download for PlayStation Plus members.
