Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is one of the biggest hits of 2020 and now it has been highly praised by one of the most influential horror directors, John Carpenter.

John Carpenter expressed his admiration for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. He specifically praised its massive open world and gameplay. He shared his thoughts in the following Tweet:

Carpenter is no stranger to the gaming world, both as a fan and his influence on the arts. Escape From New York is well known to have influence Hideo Kojima in creating the Metal Gear series (which has been praised by the film maker). In the past he has also praised other video games such as Zero Horizon Dawn and Far Cry 5.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla follows the struggle between two shadow groups during the Viking invasion of Britain. It was released for all current and Next-Gen consoles early this month.

John Carpenter is one of the most influential film directors with a vast body of work. Among his most iconic films are Halloween, The Thing, Escape From New York and Big Trouble in Little China. He is also an accomplished composer, having crafted the musical score for most of his films.
