Fictional Viking Dice Game Coming to Your Tabletop

The Assassin's Creed Valhalla Orlog dice game is a fun side activity and you'll soon be able to play it with your friends in the real world — PureArts is bringing this fictional Viking game to real-world tabletops.

Dicebreaker reports that Ubisoft is once again working with PureArts on a new project, although this won't quite be a collectible statue; rather, it's bringing the Assassin's Creed Valhalla dice game to the real world. PureArts has previously worked with Ubisoft on the Assassin's Creed franchise, largely focusing on premium collectible statues for the game.

Most recently, a Limited Edition bundle was released for Assassin's Creed Valhalla featuring the protagonist, a hidden blade prop, and six Valhalla dice. Despite the dice, it wasn't quite everything a player needed to play a game of Orlog — players need a set of twelve dice, two dice trays, and several counting stones to play a proper game. Now, all of these bits and pieces are being brought together to bring the Assassin's Creed Valhalla Orlog game to life.

Interestingly, Dicebreaker also spoke with co-development game director Benoit Richer about the project. The Orlog we got wasn't quite what was planned for the game — the original version has a deckbuilding aspect where players could collect unique dice as they progressed through the game's main storyline. Unfortunately, it became too difficult to balance this more complex version of the dice game, so it was ultimately simplified for the final release.

When is the Assassin's Creed Valhalla Orlog Tabletop Game Launching?

Unfortunately, we don't have much in the way of details about the release of the physical Assassin's Creed Valhalla Orlog game. All we know for certain is that it will be arriving sometime next year.

One potential concern, however, is the price. PureArts' collectibles can be pretty pricy — some of the lower-end statues cost around $200 and the more expensive pieces are around $750. A physical version of Orlog probably won't be quite as expensive as either of these, although there's a good chance that the finished product might be a little more expensive than you'd expect.

What do you think of the Assassin's Creed Valhalla Orlog dice game getting a physical release? Would you have liked to play the more complex deckbuilding version of the game? Let us know in the comments below!
