Assassin’s Creed Valhalla seems primed to introduce an armor set that references Iron Man.
As spotted by Eurogamer, dataminer AndyReloads has found some sleek new armor hidden in the game’s files, which could be released in a future update. The Advanced Mechanicals Armor Set gives users the ability to use a chest-mounted energy beam, much the same as Iron Man’s unibeam.
The set comes in two colorways, with the Copper edition very much looking like Iron Man’s red and gold attire. A second Iron version is a sleek white take that looks more akin to a Star Wars Stormtrooper. Neither includes a specific reference to the movies in question, so these seem to be cheeky references rather than an official crossover.
While wearing this new armor set, your Battle Cry ability is replaced with the unibeam – a forward-firing beam of energy that seemingly does area of effect and fire damage.
Additionally, the Advanced Mechanicals Armor Set includes a few other bits and pieces:
Gore-Ripper One-Handed SwordCaladcholg GreatswordA seemingly Horizon Forbidden West-inspired mountRobot skin for SyninAnimus-inspired Longship theme
When these new items will become available in-game remains to be seen, especially as AndyReloads has previously posted about a still-unreleased set that seems to reference Thanos as far back as May.
