After two years of support, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla It will come to an end this year. The recently added Forgotten Saga saw a new roguelike mode added to the game, while Ubisoft has also promised that a “final chapter” is coming to the game. Unsure what to add, but like Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Ubisoft is coming to an end, and Ubisoft will look into the future of the franchise with an event in September.
However, it has had its ups and downs, and if we look back, we can clearly see a lot of them now. One point, of course, is how Valhalla includes many ancient forms, Eivor’s transformation into Altair, and more. This is not uncommon for Doctrine killer game, but this speaks volumes about the popularity of these characters that players want in the game in some way. It’s not exactly an outdated look, but one outfit that turns Ivor into Bassem, which is pretty descriptive considering the game’s end. It was a good addition, but it looks like an important detail may have flown under the radar.
Ivor may use a stealth blade, but she’s the only playable character with an actual stealth blade that she doesn’t wear under her wrist. You see her Viking ways she wore it on her wrist instead, and it didn’t matter if someone outfitted an Altair skin or any other heritage character for that matter. Does not change. However, as Redditor Propato__Arthur pointed out, Bassem’s outfits are an exception to this.
Equipping a costume for Ivor not only moves the blade hidden under her wrist, but also completely removes the ring finger. As many know, around this time Hidden Blade wasn’t as advanced as the later games, and required users to lose a finger to use it. Now, this ritual was a symbolic gesture with a point, but the finger of the first hidden blades had to be removed because the blade would cut it (like Pike’s finger in the pigeon assassination).
Of course, a few would likely stop and look at Ivor’s hands in any in-game outfit, so it’s easy to understand how something like this could be missed. At the same time, it’s a nice nod to the franchise’s legacy. It will be interesting to see how the franchise takes shape in the coming years, with several reports Doctrine killer Projects under development, including the Bassem Axis AC split Axis game AC Infiniti.
