Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s ancient Viking dice game Orlog will receive a physical release in 2021.
Board game website Dicebreaker has learned that a physical version of the popular dice-based minigame is in production: “Ubisoft will be working with pop culture collectibles producer PureArts to publish a physical version of Orlog in 2021. Ubisoft did not provide any further details or dates at this time,” the article reads.
This is great news if you’re already playing a lot of the fun dice-based board game within Valhalla. If you’re yet to play Orlog, you can find opponents in many of Valhalla’s bustling towns, where you can sit down, chuck dice and win special God Favours to help you become the ultimate Orlog master. Unlocking God Favours from one part of the world can help you defeat Orlog Masters in another, so don’t get dissuaded if you’re struggling at first.
In case you’re wondering, Orlog isn’t a real Viking game, but was designed to feel at home in the real Viking world. “The goal was to have a game that would be ‘credible’ rather than historically accurate as we didn’t find any clear rules throughout our research,” said Ubisoft co-development game director Benoit Richer in an interview with Dicebreaker.
We reviewed Assassin’s Creed Valhalla upon the game’s launch earlier this month, scoring it an 8 and noting its “beautiful open-world.” If you’re struggling to find some of the game’s many collectables you can also check out our Interactive Valhalla Map, which will point you towards any Wealth or Mysteries you might be missing.
