Many games often refer to other forms of entertainment through Easter eggs and Assassin’s Creed Valhalla could be a tribute to Marvel Comics superhero Iron Man. A dataminer has found some impressive Iron Man-style gear Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Files that also contain an alternate appearance that bears similarities to Predator.
Discovered by dataminer AndyReloads, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla may receive an update in the future that unlocks the Iron Man-inspired armor for Eivor that was discovered in the game files. The base game already included multiple armor sets that players could swap between while the Wrath of the Druids, Siege of Parisand Dawn of Ragnarok Extensions also came with their own equipment. It’s currently unclear what sort of stats the Iron Man-themed set will have beyond the bonuses, but some Marvel fans might take the set if it drops just because they look so much like the comic book hero.
The possibly-coming Iron Man armor is called the Advanced Mechanical Armor Set and features a powerful ability that replaces the Battle Cry and instead unleashes a beam of energy from Eivor’s chest reminiscent of Iron Man’s Unibeam attack. The set also has weapons that encourage aesthetics, with a one-handed sword called the Gore-Ripper and a greatsword called the Caladcholg. AndyReloads demonstrated all this gear Assassin’s Creed Valhalla‘s files as well as what a can be Horizon forbidden west-inspired mount that has the same color scheme as the armor.
The copper Advanced Mechanical Armor Set bears the closest resemblance to Iron Man than any other gear in the game, while the iron version may be a cross between a Star Wars Stormtrooper and the infamous movie monster Predator. According to AndyReloads, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Fans could expect this new armor to show up in the Helix store within the next month or so, but the dataminer has also leaked a Thanos set in the past that hasn’t made it to the live version of the game yet. Since these two sets hinted at by AndyReloads look like Marvel characters, the Iron Man gear may drop at the same time as the Thanos stuff.
Just like that Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Thanos gear spotted by AndyReloads, many fans of the ARPG have expressed their excitement for the unique armor style revealed by the dataminer. Some Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Fans bemoaned the fact that no more Viking gear is being designed for the game, but many of the base sets reflect the time period more effectively than the Advanced Mechanical Armor set.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is now available for PC, PS4, PS5, Stadia, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S.
