Dan Snow's History Hit


Recreating the Viking World in Assassin's Creed: Valhalla

Assassin's Creed: Valhalla has brought the Viking Age to life in stunning detail, and now the game is even being used as an educational tool!

Maxime Durand is World-Design Director at Ubisoft and the mind behind the hit franchise's Discovery Tour, which is a fun way to learn about history in the game's virtual world. Our very own Dr Cat Jarman acted as a historical consultant for the game, making sure it was as accurate as possible. In this episode of Gone Medieval, Cat sits down with Maxime to discuss the value of historical gaming as an educator as well as a form of entertainment.
