Assassin's Creed Valhalla Includes X-Ray Kills For Finishing Opponents

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Ubisoft's next instalment in the franchise, continues the path started by 2017's Origins and refines the series' RPG-stylings, but it's also getting a brutal new addition.

As glimpsed in the recent gameplay overview, players will be able to unleash gruesome "x-ray" finishers more akin to something you'd find in Mortal Kombat.
