Hachette games is making the dice game, Orlog, from Assassin’s creed Valhalla into a reality. The game is currently available for pre-order on the company website for $39.99 and is set to release on June 8th of this year.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla released in 2022 and follows Viking warrior, Eivior as they battle Anglo-Saxons and establish alliances after leaving Norway behind. Like its predecessors, Valhalla immerses players in its historical setting by offering a multitude of side quests and mini-games. Orlog mini-games can be found in every major town within the title.
“Played extensively by the Norsemen and Anglo-Saxons in every city of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Orlog is played by two players who use dice rolls and bonus effects to claim victory over their opponent,” Hachette Games writes on their website. “Will you earn the favor of the Gods and receive their blessings to win?”
Players must roll a set of dice three times. With each roll, players choose which die to keep and which to reroll. Earn tokens from the Gods by rolling dice with golden outlines. God tokens can be used to heal the player, boost their attacks and more. After both players have completed their rolls, the effects of the dice and the winner are determined.
To master Orlog, players will need to use strategic thinking. Pay attention to which rolls your opponent keeps and plan ahead to succeed.
According to Hachette Game’s website, Orlog is recommended for ages eight and up and takes about twenty minutes to play. The website also includes a link to upcoming Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: Orlog events.
Video Games Hit The Small Screen
While Orlog is getting a physical board game adaptation, many video games are in the process of receiving television adaptations. Prime Video is looking into creating a live-action God of War series for its streaming service. Likewise, a live adaptation of The Last of Us will release on HBO Max in 2023.
