Assassin’s Creed Valhalla romance guide

Vikings need love too — Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla includes the romance feature made popular by its predecessor, Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey. Romance will allow Eivor to engage in romantic relationships with different NPCs throughout the game.

It won’t be obvious which characters Eivor can court. It will take a little bit of digging and side-questing. This guide will let you know which NPCs can be romanced and where to find them.

Who is looking for love?

With a game as large as Valhalla, we can expect handfuls of different romantic options to continue appearing as the game undergoes updates and players discover new side quests and world events. One thing to keep in mind is NPCs that can be romanced will always have a name. They won’t just be “Saxon Woman” or “Nordic Man.” There’s also no real indication that they’ll pursue Eivor as a love interest. You’ll have to do a few quests for that character before they either ask you out or make a move. Switching genders also has no effect on which characters Eivor can romance with.

Unlike Odyssey, Eivor can’t just go around engaging in open relationships with anybody he or she pleases. They’ll have to break off their current relationship to begin a new one. While romancing around England won’t necessarily propel Eivor’s story forward, it can be a nice break from grinding XP and skill points. 

Here are all known NPCs that are interested in Eivor and how you can kick off a loving relationship.

Bil (Norway)

Before leaving for England, Eivor can help this Danish woman find her lost comb. She can be found in the mountains of Rygjafylke, marked by a blue world-event orb.  Completing the quest will prompt Bil to ask Eivor if she’d like to “comb her hair.” Eivor can hopefully take a hint. You could return to Norway and court Bil if you happened to miss the quest at the beginning. 


Assassins Creed Valhalla Randavi Romance

Yes, that Randavi — your brother’s wife. It looks like there are no real rules of courtship in Raven culture! You can venture off with Randavi and discover a letter written by her professing her love to you. This will trigger after completing three allegiances at the War Table. Eivor probably could have seen this coming — Randavi foreshadows it when she complains about Sigurd’s constant absence.


Assassin's Creed Valhalla Petra Romance

Once you build the Hunter’s Hut, Petra will engage Eivor in a few different side quests. She’ll take Eivor on a wild wolf hunt, as well as a magic mushroom trip. Continue to engage with her until she invites you to a friendly archery contest. From there, Petra’s advances will be pretty obvious.

Vili Hemmingson

While playing through the Snotinghamscire questline, Eivor will end up sitting with Vili by a fire. He will suggest that the two of them take their relationship to a “more friendly” level. Eivor is free to deny his advances, which will leave him disappointed but ultimately unchanged. 


Assassin's Creed Valhalla Broder

Eivor will encounter Broder when completing main story missions in East Anglia. The two will first meet in a “friendly” fistfight. Their story will circle Oswald’s wedding. After liberating East Anglia, Broder will be rather forthright about courting Eivor. He’ll ask if Eivor would like to lay with him sometime during Oswald’s wedding. Yes or no, it’s up to you.


Assassin's Creed Gunlodr

After making it to the Asgard portion of the main story, Eivor will find Thor’s Bridal Circlet. Eivor can give the circlet to Gunlodr, an NPC met in Jotunheim. Eivor will have to wait until the second time she visits Asgard for Gunlodr’s romance option to open up.


Assassin's Creed Stigr Romance

Eivor will find Stigr in Hemthorpe village located in the Snotinghamscire region of England. A flying Icon will mark him. You can win Stigr’s heart with Eivor’s flying ability. Once you “defeat” him in a flying duel, Stigr will invite Eivor to a secluded location where they’ll get a little frisky.


Assassin's Creed Valhalla Tarbon

Eivor will find Tarben in Ravensthorpe after building the bakery. He’ll invite Eivor on a short fishing trip where he’ll come clean about his feelings for Eivor. It’s not totally clear if players also have to build the fishing hut to go fishing with Tarben. However, there’s no reason not to have both.


Assassin's Creed Tewdwr

During the Glowecestre story arc, Eivor will be drinking with Tewdwr during what can only be described as Nordic Halloween. It’s actually Eivor who will initiate the romantic relationship. A heart will mark a dialogue option while the two are drinking together. However, this won’t spark anything yet. At the end of the  Glowecestre storyline, Eivor will receive a letter from Tewdr asking to meet in private. It’s here that Eivor will be given multiple Romance dialogue options.

With big plans for future expansions, there’s no telling how many more romance options Eivor will have in Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla. You can watch the full post-launch expansion trailer here.

The best skills to get in Assassin’s Creed Mirage
Basim about to assassinate a dude.

With Assassin's Creed Mirage going back to the series' roots with this entry, it also makes sense for us to start from scratch as well. Basim will begin his journey as a young street rat, but slowly evolve into the skilled assassin you later meet in Valhalla. This will be a long and arduous journey for our hero, and for you as a player, but one thing this entry doesn't abandon from the more RPG-focused titles is the skill tree. Basim's skills are broken down into three different trees, Phantom, Trickster, and Predator, that you can invest your points into as you see fit. While none are technically useless, there are some standouts that are much more useful across your journey through Baghdad. These are the best skills you need to get in Assassin's Creed Mirage.
Best skills to get

Unfortunately, nearly every skill in Assassin's Creed Mirage is on a linear tree meaning you need to unlock prior skills to get to the more powerful ones. Even so, there are some trees far more valuable to invest in in general than others. Note that you can freely refund any spent skill points by highlighting a skill and holding the button prompt to get your point back at no cost if you want to reallocate your points.
Auto-Collect - Trickster Tree
Let's be real, no one can resist looting a body. The problem with that is that when you're trying to stealth your way through an area, taking the extra time to dig through the pockets of a freshly assassinated foe will more than likely end up with you getting discovered. What is a greedy assassin to do? With the Auto-Collect skill you can steal an enemy's life and their goodies all in one fell swoop so you don't have to worry about getting caught or backtracking to all the bodies you left later to collect your spoils.
Chain Assassination - Phantom Tree
The only real essential skill in the Phantom Tree has to be Chain Assassination. This will be a familiar skill to those who played prior games as it allows you to stealth kill one target, and then chain that into a second if they're close enough, or in line of sight so long as you have a throwing knife handy to toss at a nearby target. Not only is this more efficient, but opens up tons more possibilities since you don't have to wait until each enemy is completely alone to stealth them.
Extra Tool Capacity 1,2, and 3 - Trickster Tree
The tools you unlock as you level up and complete missions are essential parts of Basim's tool kit. The more tools you can have at the ready, the more situations you will be equipped to deal with.
Knife Recovery - Trickster Tree
Throwing knives are almost too overpowered in Assassin's Creed Mirage. The only real balance to them is that you can only hold so many, and once you use one, you need to head to a shop to get more. Or, if you unlock the Knife Recovery skill, you can salvage any knife you use by looting it off the unlucky soul who was on the receiving end. If you play smart with this skill, you can save tons of currency and time by recycling your blades.
Pickpocket Master - Trickster Tree
Basim grew up as a thief, but he can still learn a few tricks to get better. Pickpocket Master has two effects, the first is to vastly decrease the difficulty of the QTE for pickpocketing higher-tier loot from targets. The second is to completely remove the QTE from basic pickpocketing making it an automatic success.
Stealth Recon - Predator Tree
Last up, we have the Stealth Recon skill from the Predator Tree. So long as you're in stealth and crouched or in cover, any enemy in the area will be highlighted and their patrols shown to you, even through walls.

iPhone 15 Pro can natively run the latest Resident Evil and Assassin’s Creed games
Leon and Ashley in the Resident Evil 4 remake.

In a major stride forward for mobile gaming, Apple announced during today's event that console games like Assassin's Creed Mirage, Resident Evil 4's remake, and Resident Evil Village are coming to the iPhone 15 Pro. These aren't watered-down mobile spinoffs or cloud-streamed games either; they're running natively with the help of the A17 Pro chip.

During the gaming segment of Tuesday's Apple event, the power of the iPhone 15 Pro's A17 Pro chip was highlighted. The 3-nanometer chip has 19 billion transistors, a six-core CPU, a 16-core Neural Engine that can handle 35 trillion operations per second, and a six-core GPU that supports things like mesh shading and hardware-accelerated ray tracing in video games. Several game developers were featured following its introduction to explain and show off just how powerful the A17 Pro Chip is. While this segment started with games already native to mobile, like The Division Resurgence, Honkai: Star Rail, and Genshin Impact, it didn't take long for some games made for systems like PS5 and Xbox Series X to appear.
Capcom's Tsuyoshi Kanda showed up and revealed that natively running versions of Resident Evil Village and Resident Evil 4 are coming to the iPhone 15 Pro before the end of the year. Later, Apple confirmed that Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed Mirage, which launches next month on PC and consoles, will also get a native iPhone 15 Pro port in early 2024, while Death Stranding is slated for a 2023 iPhone 15 Pro launch.
Historically, console-quality games like these have been impossible to get running on a mobile phone without the use of cloud gaming. Confirming that these three AAA games can all run natively on iPhone 15 Pro is certainly an impactful way for Apple to show just how powerful the A17 Pro chip is.

Assassin’s Creed Mirage: release date, trailers, gameplay, and more
Assassin's Creed Mirage Basim

It's time to ready your hidden blades once again, assassins, because a brand new entry in the Assassin's Creed series is upon us. All the leaks and rumors have turned out to be true, and the next installment in the franchise has been officially revealed as Assassin's Creed Mirage. This franchise has undergone some major changes in recent entries, and the next game seems poised to shake things up yet again.

First officially revealed during a Ubisoft Forward in September 2022, Assassin's Creed Mirage will be the next mainline game in the series after 2020's Assassin's Creed Valhalla. While each game typically only has smaller, less prominent ties to one another (at least after the series moved on from the Desmond arc), this game bucks the trend in that regard. From plot to gameplay changes and more, here's everything we know about Assassin's Creed Mirage, an upcoming PlayStation 5 game we have our eye on.
