Assassin’s Creed: Ragnarök Mjolnir and Valhalla editions are likely fake10th January 2020
While Assassin’s Creed: Ragnarök is far from a secret, it would seem two special editions have been leaked – though both seem fake.
If they are to be believed, the premium copies will be titled ‘Mjolnir’ and ‘Valhalla’.
The first references the god Thor’s iconic hammer while the second is the Nordic equivalent of Heaven.
The edition’s names aptly fit in line with the Viking theme that is believed to pervade through the upcoming instalment.
Late last year eGaming Desk reported on how Ubisoft’s follow-up to Assassin’s Creed Odyssey would be a Viking epic.
Its Montreuil HQ in France has been rather secretive about the project, but an insider revealed the title is expected for release on both PS4 and the PS5.
While they confirmed it would be due for the Xbox One, they could not confirm if it would be arriving on the Series X.
Players will be able to explore both Scandinavia and Britain – effectively confirming it will roughly be set around the end of the 8th century when the Vikings first invaded England after sailing to Lindisfarne in 793AD.
Now, there are rumoured screenshots surfacing from the Italian GameStop site and Germany’s Amazon site depicting the two supposed special editions, according to Metro.

The same report also states the listings on the respective sites were taken down almost immediately.
At least one of the photos originally appeared on Reddit, but some in the comments were quick to point out the image could be fake.
This is because it boasts the same numbers as the Xbox One copy of Watch Dogs: Legion, another Ubisoft title. One user even recreated the image rather quickly, which tends to suggest the image is indeed fake.
As such, it is becoming clearer to see the veracity of the rumours is rather nonexistent and until Ubisoft officially announces a special edition, it is unclear what it/they will be titled.
