Assassin's Creed Valhalla Gameplay Footage Leaked

Ahead of UbiForward event next week, gameplay footage from Assassin's Creed Valhalla gets leaked online.

In late April, developer/publisher Ubisoft officially announces Assassin's Creed Valhalla, latest installment of Assassin's Creed action-adventure stealth game series for modern consoles and Windows PC, scheduled for holiday 2020 release.

Most recently, a 30 minute-long gameplay footage of AC Valhalla got leaked online that shows-off combat mechanics, open-world, story settings and much more, shortly ahead of upcoming Ubisoft Forward event set for July 12, 2020.

Although Ubisoft has taken quick attempts to take down these videos from YouTube swiftly using its copyright system, many other video sharing and social media platforms are passing the footage along, including Reddit and Streamable.

Ubisoft trying to take these videos down confirms that latest leaks are genuine and were meant to reveal on UbiForward event. However, video quality for leaked footage is not that impressive because they are not from an authorized source.

Below is 30 minute gameplay of Assassin's Creed Valhalla that was leaked earlier and scrubbed from online.

Given how the leaked video is labeled "WORK IN PROGRESS" only suggests that this probably some in-development footage and whatever Ubisoft is currently planning to show at their Forward event on July 12 is most likely to change.

Recent footage from Valhalla shows fierce Viking protagonist Eivor in action, repeating same formula of Assassin's Creed Origins and Odyssey. There are different paths to choose from as well as varied options for gears and skills in combat.

Previously, Ubisoft offered a first look at Valhalla gameplay during Microsoft reveal event in May 2020 that was just an in-engine cinematic trailer and no gameplay at all, which has disappointed many of Assassin's Creed fan-base.

Ubisoft is expected to showcase brand-new Assassin's Creed Valhalla gameplay overview at UbiForward event next week. Fans can also look forward to a reveal trailer for long-rumored Far Cry 6 and get a glimpse at Watch Dogs: Legion.

Death Stranding Sequel or Spin-Off Teased by Hideo Kojima

Hideo Kojima teases working on new concepts, possibly teasing Death Stranding sequel or a spin-off.

After his shocking departure from publisher company Konami, game director Hideo Kojima made Kojima Productions an independent studio and helmed anticipated action game Death Stranding for Sony Interactive Entertainment.

Following its PlayStation 4 debut back in November 2019, a Windows PC version was announced for July 14, 2020. Meanwhile, Kojima started to tease a number of projects that he may be working on, including a Death Stranding sequel.

Though there have been rumors of Kojima Productions working on either Metal Gear Solid or Silent Hill series in association with Konami and Sony, which was debunked by a representative from former company shortly afterwards.

Most likely to be set within Death Stranding universe, upcoming Hideo Kojima project may turn out to be a sequel or spin-off. At least, his latest series of social media posts suggests that he is up to something similar to his most recent work.

Kojima posted an image of his work desk on Twitter, collaborating on character designs and much more.

Keen eyes at ResetEra has taken a good look at the artwork on his working desk and deduced an object as a flying vehicle, labeling it as "Landing Ship" and connecting dots that Death Stranding franchise may head over to space travel.

An early video featuring official logo of Kojima Productions shows a Ludens character on surface of moon carrying a studio flag. In a 2019 official release trailer, Cliff Unger talks to BB about being able to go anywhere, even to moon.

Though most fans are speculating that he is working on a video game, Kojima himself has stated interest of working on a non-interactive project. You can surely draw more than one conclusion from what ResetEra breaks down to you though.

Despite offering a unique gameplay experience, Death Stranding has created division among players as the game is not certainly for everyone. There is a lot to explore in Hideo Kojima's thematic fictional world in a future sequel to DS.

In recent stream for PlayStation 5 Reveal Event, developer Neostream Interactive showcased their upcoming action-adventure role-playing game Little Devil Inside, which will launch on PC, PlayStation 4 and a timed exclusive for PS5 console.

One of the trailers for next-generation games showcased in PS5 digital event that caught everyone's attention for its strangely unique aesthetic was a crowdfunded Kickstarter project titled Little Devil Inside from an indie studio.

Many took Twitter to voice opinion over an enemy design in LDI that resembles to dark-skinned tribes people with prominent red lips, wearing dreadlocks and masks, common tropes that are similar to racist stereotype in various medium.

RELATED: Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales is DLC or Standalone Game?

People immediately called out this stereotypical racist character design for black folks in LDI and South Korean developer Neostream reached out to apologize this weekend for such unintended depiction, which they will change soon.

Business development director for Neostream, John Choi states that they clearly didn't intend for a "racist stereotype" and will adjust its design. He added, these characters were to act as guardians/protectors of a certain in-game region.

RELATED: Red Dead Redemption Remake Reportedly Coming in 2021

Known streamer and Twitch partner LordBalvin was one of the first among many fans to point this issue out.

Of course, developers of Little Devil Inside didn't take reference for these mystic natives from African or Afro-American human tribes. Since their intention was to create colorful masks, dev team will also remove bold lips and dreadlocks.

Choi said that LDI developers will consider changing said character design entirely if needed and will not have same instances again. They would make a few adjustments to see if they are suitable to the game or make overall change.

RELATED: The Last of Us TV Series Signed Chernobyl Director for Pilot Episode

What made these design of tribal folks a problem in first place is that protagonist character is shown to be fighting a number of monstrous enemy variety and those tribal ones seemed to be the only humans he faces off as adversaries.

Whether or not intentional, this seems like a real-world stereotype comparison of these people to hostile monsters. Besides, that particular scenario seems to take inspiration from an era that is known for plundering of indigenous people.

In an attempt to dismiss confusion and rumors among fans after PS5 reveal event, Insomniac had to come out announcing Spider-Man: Miles Morales is in fact a standalone adventure set within Marvel's Spider-Man universe and not a DLC.

From its debut trailer and official press release, it seems that Resident Evil Village will only be launched on PC via Steam, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, despite an early retailer leak of PlayStation 4 version suggested cross-gen release.

Capcom originally started development of RE: Village as a cross-generation game but due to unintended circumstances, they recently had to shift focus on next-generation consoles only, according to industry leaker AestheticGamer.

Even four months ago, Capcom planned to release Resident Evil 8 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One platforms but that idea had to abandon midway because of longer loading times of last-gen consoles and a major graphical overhaul.

To get over these setbacks, Capcom simply stopped working on PS4 and Xbox versions so RE8 will have almost no loading time at all. Also, they can push for better graphics quality in next-gen without being stuck to last-gen system.

RE8: Village brings back Ethan Winters from RE7, who has resumed a normal life in peace with his wife Mia. Then one day BSAA agent Chris Redfield suddenly showed up at his doorstep to cause a tragic event, throwing his life into turmoil.

There were rumors of Resident Evil 8 being the darkest among whole RE series, featuring scary enemy designs and a redesigned Chris Redfield will be serving as an antagonist, many of which has already been confirmed in recent trailer.

Village has a lot of loading zones and travelling though locations to focus on exploration, which was limited by its last-gen versions. Resident Evil 8 is playable now but Capcom is working on a graphical overhaul, starting in late 2019.

Given how Resident Evil VIII: Village continues to pursue first-person horror, there might be a version to support PSVR in future eventually. Capcom may also end up announcing PlayStation 4 and Xbox One port for RE8 on a later date.
