Ubisoft showed off the first Assassin’s Creed Valhalla gameplay trailer during yesterday’s (May 7) Inside Xbox event, which featured the Xbox Series X in action. Gamers around the world were disappointed as it was a highlight reel with hard cuts rather than an actual demo. Now the company has addressed that disappointment.

Creative director Ashraf Ismail tried to temper expectations before the trailer went live worldwide, but that did not stop the negative reaction towards the video. He tweeted out to validate fan feelings but to let everyone know that more will be shown in the coming months.

As of writing, the gameplay trailer has 20,000 likes and 33,000 dislikes on the Ubisoft North America YouTube channel with over 700,000 views. Comparatively, the Assassin’s Creed Valhalla world premiere trailer has nearly 2 million views with over 290,000 views and 11,000 dislikes.
