Assassin’s Creed Valhalla has a new official podcast, one that will get you acquainted with the history of the vikings ahead of the game’s release. The series, Echoes of Valhalla, consists of five episodes, all of them available now.
The series is a documentary, featuring history experts and comedians taking part in reconstructed scenes from Scandinavian history. Each episode focuses on a different part of Viking life, including details of their lives and military strategies.
The show is exclusive to Spotify, so you can’t listen to it on Apple podcasts, Pocket Casts, or anywhere else. You can listen to the whole show on the embedded player below.
Here’s the episode list:
Episode 1 : The Sons of the Great North (16 mins)Episode 2 : Dragon of the Seas (15 mins)Episode 3 : Thor’s Hammer (16 mins)Episode 4 : Birth of an Empire (16 mins)Episode 5 : the Dawn of a New Era (16 mins)
It does not seem that further future episodes are planned, which is good news for those of us with huge podcast backlogs. While you’re on Spotify, it’s worth checking out the Valhalla EP, featuring seven songs from the game.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla releases November 10 for PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X, Xbox One, and PC. Ubisoft is offering free upgrades on both platforms, with the Xbox versions using Microsoft’s Smart Delivery system.
