Assassin's Creed serien har fundet vej til vores breddegrader. Nordisk vikingekultur er omdrejningspunktet, og med det følger selvfølgelig også nordisk mytologi. Og det ser ud til, at Ubisoft ikke holder sig tilbage for, (igen) at tage historien ned af mytologiske veje. Det bekæfter game director Eric Baptizat i et interview med Pcgamesn.
Mythology [and religion] was present in everyday life for the Norse at this time," fortæller Eric Baptizat til Pcgamesn og fortsætter:
"An interesting [result] of that is the line between myth and reality is blurred - everything that happened to people was explained as being sent from the gods. So we play a lot with this, and you'll see many elements [of life] as they correlate to Norse mythology.
"Take Valka, the seer. She is a kind of shaman, and when you build a hut for her in your settlement, she allows you to go on a vision quest in which you'll visit some of the worlds of Norse mythology. So you can access Asgard and Jotunheim."
