Could You Create the Next Assassins Creed Valhalla?

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla was one of the most anticipated games in recent years. The Assassin’s Creed brand has taken gaming to new heights with its carefully thought out storylines, impressive graphics and immersive gameplay. It broke launch records for Ubisoft and has done wonders for the company’s bottom line. But what does it take to create a game of this calibre? Could you develop the next Assassin’s Creed Valhalla? The first step is choosing the right games courses.

Actually, the first step is choosing the right university that runs the game development courses you need. It doesn’t matter how well designed the games courses are if the university doesn’t encourage you to think big, set challenges and push you to go further. #UniAsItShouldBe does all this, while also creating supportive learning environments and looking after students’ wellbeing. The University of Bolton meets all these criteria and much more, which is why it has been named No. 1 for Student Satisfaction for the past three years*.

Of course, the right university in Manchester, the North West or beyond needs to run the game development courses you need to pursue your gaming dreams. The best games courses are well designed and supported by up-to-date technology, passionate and engaging teachers, and industry connections. Students should be encouraged to try their ideas out, design, experiment, test, and interact with each other’s ideas to provide feedback, peer reviews and support. Teamwork is a vital skill in the gaming industry, as is the ability to give and receive constructive criticism and feedback from those testing and trialling your ideas.

If the university and the course are in place, all that is left is you. Do you have what it takes? You can learn the skills and gain the experience needed for game designing. However, great games require a certain spark of creativity combined with hard work, dedication and determination to overcome obstacles, faults and setbacks. The University of Bolton with its dedicated teaching staff will draw these skills out of you, but only if you have the will to succeed.
