Assassin's Creed Valhalla appears to be full of holes (laughs), with yet another leak appearing ahead of Ubisoft's next event. This time, it's a smaller clip, mostly focused on a fight between Eivor and a lady who can give ghosts - a classic Anglo Saxon trick.

The series has always flirted with magic and mysticism, but really started to lean towards it with Odyssey, which pits Alexios and Kassandra against a bunch of gods and monsters.
About the fight and some gameplay mechanics of Assassin's Creed Valhalla
Eivor's struggle with Cordelia, which was shared in the Reddit, the combat still looks very familiar and, in most cases, the couple exchange blows with swords and axes; but there are additional skills so that Cordelia can teleport, summon ghosts and cast lightning. It's a little more to follow than most of Assassin's Creed's fights; and it seems that the challenge increases a little in the second phase.
After the fight, we have another view of the inventory system and the new skill tree, which looks a little more elaborate than its predecessor. There are still three broad paths, but there are many more branches and routes you can follow.
The map also makes a brief appearance, taking a look at Mercia and East Anglia, of which only a small part has been explored. The regions have a suggested level of power and there are progress gauges for wealth, mystery and secrets; which will likely be filled as you discover treasures and other hidden items.
Anyway, if you want to see more images, check out the weekend's 30-minute Assassin's Creed Valhalla leak. And you can expect high quality images during Ubisoft Forward on July 12th.
