A cool feature for Valhalla would be the ability to wear shields on your back while dual wielding two weapons or two-handing a large weapon. Maybe it could even protect you from attacks and/or arrows from behind. Even if it were just cosmetic it would be very neat feature to have. From the business side of things, I believe it could help Ubisoft make more money as it would give further incentive to buy helix items, people who typically dual-wield or use 2h weapons might buy a helix shield if they could wear it on their back. If I'm not mistaken it would also be historically accurate, because I believe Anglo-Saxons would sometimes wear a kite shield on their back while wielding a dane axe, and I don't see why a Viking like Eivor couldn't do the same thing. I just think it would be an awesome feature which would add some more flavor to the game, and make everyone happy.
Here is promotional art for Valhalla showing off Eivor dual-wielding axes with a shield on his back.
Here are some screenshots I took by using a little feature/bug in the game where Eivor will two-hand a weapon for a little while with a shield on his back after doing an air-attack while using a 2h weapon with a shield.
