Ubisoft’s Viking simulator Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will feature the ability to recruit cats to aid your raiding force. That’s not to says they will be joining you in battle, clawing out your enemies’ eyes (although that would be cool to see), but they definitely serve a purpose.
Cats Are Recruitable In Assassin’s Creed Valhalla
Twitter user SixKeys revealed that one World Event will see players coming across a cat named Nali, which you’ll chase an end up recruiting it to your cause. Any cats you end up bringing with you will do their bit by keeping your crew company and killing any pesky rats.
I know a lot of you are asking "Is Valhalla really GOTY material?" Well, I'm here to tell you…
This game allows you to recruit cats. 🐱
