After the creators said Valhalla will have "no magic" as they want to keep it all as technology, I was so incredibly frustrated. Even moreso when "fans" started complaining that it had TOO many mythical aspects.
The whole notion of magic and technology being different is just ridiculous. 300 years ago, a concoction that would prevent diseases would have been called a "potion," now it's called a vaccine.
200 years ago, a car would have been considered literal witchcraft.
Magic is just science we don't yet understand!
Valhalla and the series as a whole should incorporate MORE "magic." The entire premise of the ISU people is their technology is so advanced we considered it magic yet the series seems to not want to go all in on the magic aspect.
Enchanting is a real thing that we can see today.
Through studies we've seen performed today, speaking to plants can genuinely help them grow. The vibrational frequency and pattern has a real world impact, this is exactly what enchanting is!
Not only that, potions are created today in laboratories and called "vaccines." Using a "potion" that effects certain enemies and not others is EXACTLY what modern vaccines and shots do. They attack certain cells while leaving others in tact.
Spells would just be another form of enchantment, certain vibrations and frequencies in precise patterns are already shown to impact the world, there is NO reason they shouldn't be in these games (Valhalla especially).
I was just so frustrated watching "fans" meltdown because of the "fantasy" elements being included. It's ridiculous because quite literally every "fantastical" thing has a real world anchorpoint.
We've recently found snails who have iron shells and can withstand up to 700 DEGREES!
We already have spells, enchantments, potions and exotic armors in the real world which is why magic is JUST science we don't fully understand.
All of this to say, Valhalla needs more mythical aspects and the franchise as a whole needs to show more technological marvels created by the ISU.
For such an advanced society, they sure don't seem all that interesting.
Valhalla is an incredible looking game. The world has been built beautifully but it's near impossible to be immersed when the camera is so far from the character.
This simple tweak turns Valhalla from a typical AC, into an immersive Norse world like God of War.
If you enjoyed God of War and how immersive it was, change your camera settings. After using this new camera, it's criminal the game wasn't launched like this. It makes the game feel 1000x more immersive.
To Change Settings
- Search for ACValhalla.ini
- Scroll to FOVScale and change the value to 0.45000
You can change the value to anything you'd like, I settled personally on 0.45 as it felt the most immersive
The game takes on a COMPLETELY different feel with this simple change. The game genuinely feels like an immersive sim
