Wessex was known for having the strongest and fiercest opposition to Viking settlement. The next scene they look at features Viking longships, which will play a major role in the game. Large-scale battles can take place on fields and in fortifications, and the one in the trailer showcases some of the things you'll be working with in Valhalla's combat system. So, the main story begins in AD during the Viking era and at a time when England was several lands but not a unified country--there are multiple fractured kingdoms. As trailer songs are generally meant to set the tone for the subject of the trailer, "Soul of a Man" likely points to a central theme of Assassin's Creed Valhalla. McDevitt gave more historical context, and said that the evidence of how successful Norse people were in settling England can be found in the number of towns with names ending in -thorpe or -by.
