Fresh off winning his first World Series title with the Los Angeles Dodgers, Cody Bellinger has taken his talents to “Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.”
The 2019 National League MVP is playing a viking named Otta Sluggasson in the brand new Ubisoft-developed open world action-adventure video game.
He provided the motion capture, voice acting and face modeling for the characters, which players can encounter on their journey through the game.
In the reveal, Sluggasson is shown swinging a spiked club reminiscent of a baseball bat to Eivor, the protagonist character. Sluggasson can also be seen preparing to go to bat over a home plate-like stump.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla was released worldwide on November 10 for Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC and Stadia. It also became available for the PlayStation 5 on November 12, which was the day the console launched in most regions.
The number of active players on launch day for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla doubled that of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, the previous installment in the series.
“We are humbled by the reception from the players and extremely proud of what our teams have accomplished with Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, which builds on the amazing success of its predecessors,” Ubisoft co-founder and CEO Yves Guillemot said in a statement.
“In the context of COVID-19, shipping Assassin’s Creed Valhalla on no less than seven platforms is an incredible achievement for all of the teams involved around the world.
“We are excited to greet players on Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5 with a game that unleashes the power of the new hardware. This paves the way for an exciting holiday, with Assassin’s Creed Valhalla set to be one of this season’s biggest hits.”
2021 salary arbitration projections for Bellinger
Bellinger, entering his second eligible year of salary arbitration, is slated to earn anywhere from $11.5 million to $15.9 million next season. In 2019, he earned $11.5 million, which broke Kris Bryant’s MLB record for a first-year arbitration-eligible player.
