Assassin’s Creed Valhalla has so many different activities for you to take part in. Whether you’re raiding a small Saxon town, or working with the Assassins to steer the country towards a better future. You might even take part in a side quest that sees you find a small item at the bottom of a lake, or discover traitors amongst your ranks. You might also take part in some Assassin’s Creed Valhalla multiplayer. While this isn’t exactly what you think it is, there are a couple of different ways to interact with other players in this game.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Multiplayer
At the time of writing, there are only two ways to interact with other players in Assassin’s Creed Valhala. These are Photo Sharing and Jomsviking Recruitment.
Photo Sharing is very simple. All you need to do is enter the game’s Photo Mode and take as many pictures as you want. You can spend hours of your day working on a single shot. There are so many different ways to angle and change up the view you’re looking at that you may create something completely unique to you.
Once you’ve taken the photo, it will appear on the map screen for other players to see. Not everyone in the world will see your photo, but a good number of other players will pick up on it and be able to see the gorgeous shot you took.
This is a very passive way of interacting with others, but it’s also a sort of beautiful way of doing it.
The Jomsviking Recruitment system is a little more involved than sharing photos. You can access it once you’ve constructed the Barracks in your own settlement.
With the Barracks now built, you can head there are customise your own Jomsviking. You will unlock new features for your Jomsviking over the course of your playthroguh. This will make them look more interesting, but also give them more power in fights. The better your Jomsviking is in a raid, the more players are likely to use them.
If your Jomsviking is recruited, you’ll get silver as a reward from their raids. This is useful because it helps you build up some finances without needing to do anything. You can also hire other player’s Jomsvikings for a raid, helping them out with the silver they bring back.
While this isn’t true multiplayer in the classic Assassin’s Creed sense, it’s as close as the series is going to get for now. The servers for Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood, which introduced multiplayer, were taken down a while ago. There’s currently not that many options for competitive multiplayer in this series, so you’ll have to settle for passive co-op and photo sharing.
Hopefully Ubisoft implements an older multiplayer feature that sees you avenge other dead players by finding their bodies in your world. This feature existed in Assassin’s Creed Origins and Odyssey, so why couldn’t it work in Valhalla as well?
