After announcing Assassin’s Creed Valhalla on April 29, Ubisoft cruelly forced us to wait an entire day for the trailer. But boy, was it worth it. Much like we’ve seen in the Egypt-backdropped Assassin’s Creed Origins and the Greek-inspired Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, Valhalla takes us on a journey through an original story featuring Norse mythology and ... wait for it ... VIKINGS.

If those crazy, brolic, bearded, drunk bastards on boats give you life and you want to join them, you’ll get the chance to when it drops November 17 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. Console buyers are promised a free upgrade to next-gen versions on their respective platforms.

As with any Assassin’s Creed launch, Ubisoft vomited out a ton of different versions you can buy, each entitling you to more physical and digital extras the more you spend. Save for the Collector’s Edition (Ubisoft-exclusive) and the physical Ultimate Edition with the Steelbook case (GameStop-exclusive), you’ll get the same bonuses no matter where you buy.

If you’re not sure whether you’ll buy the DLC right away, you’ll probably want to just pick up the standard edition of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. No matter where you buy, Ubisoft is offering up early and free access to the Way of the Berserker story mission for pre-ordering.

Add $50 on top of the standard edition’s price and you’ll get Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Gold Edition. The main benefit is the season pass, offering you all the DLC Ubisoft is planning down the road in one easy package. This is for those who know they won’t be able to pull themselves from their viking raiding parties. Also built into the cost is a Steelbook case, a nice collector’s item in its own right.
