Over many years and many iterations of the Assassin’s Creed franchise, the iconic assassin’s outfit slowly became more ostentatious and less useful for, say, hiding among a group of white-robed monks. The next game in the series, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, is bringing hoods, hidden blades, and social stealth back.
While the first hands-on demo GameSpot previewed for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla was very action-heavy, the developers have promised that the entire game doesn’t follow this mould.
“We do bring social stealth back in a lot of our quests and a lot of parts in our world,” said assistant level design director Laurence Letalien in an interview with GameSpot’s Jordan Ramée. “We do have this mechanic of disguise where you can put your hood on and in different locations where you want to blend in more get less detected, you can put it on and it’s a mechanic you can use to social stealth between crowds. We are also bringing back the social stealth of the monks walking around you can blend with them.”
