Assassin’s Creed Valhalla could be getting some MCU and Star Wars inspired armor sets.
As first reported by Eurogamer on August 5, YouTuber and dataminer AndyReloads (opens in a new tab) has delved into the Assassin’s Creed Valhalla files and has discovered some pretty interesting content. First of all, you can take a look at the armor set just below buried within the game files, which the YouTuber and dataminer consider to be quite heavily inspired by Star Wars’ Stormtroopers and Marvel’s Iron Man.
No, in case you were wondering, these are not actual Stormtrooper armor sets. What’s really going on here is that the armor sets are meant to reference the Isu race in the Assassin’s Creed series, a society of technologically advanced beings that have appeared in recent mainline games.
Then there’s the new armor below. While this is also an armor set that references Isu society, it’s clearly inspired by Thanos from the Marvel comics and Cinematic Universe, especially when you look at the multi-colored gauntlet the armor set wears on his right hand.
The strange thing is that none of these armor sets have appeared in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, nor has Ubisoft commented or hinted at their addition. While the Stormtrooper armor set is a relatively recent discovery, Thanos’ armor set was added to the game files back in May, so he’s been kicking around for quite some time at this point.
We’ll have to see if Ubisoft actually ends up bringing these armor sets to Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, or if they just sit on the cutting room floor.
What we do know is that Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will have a roguelite mode later this year, and Ubisoft will unveil other future DLC for the game near the end of the year.
