As the title says, what are they in the game? Anyone know? Have any official information been released for them?

What I think, they are a religious order of warrior women, or perhaps women who fight and train as one of there mythical heroines did to honor of her, or perhaps they try to invision the Valkyries of legends those who fight for Odin. What are your take on it? Have any insider information?

Starting this cos waiting for the video of them to get released... I am dying to know :P

Well then aren't you lucky, because the video about them was released about 10 minutes ago

Not the biggest fan of the spear and shield combo. Kinda wish it was just the spear. But still maining nonetheless.

So they are a warrior order fighting for the reputation of the fallen who did not earn themselves a place in valhalla. If the valkyries think that someone who was worthy of a place at odins table died an unhonorable death, they will fight to wash his name clean in the eyes of the gods.
Pretty cool way to translate the mythic valkyrie-theme into a semi realistic enviroment :)

I kinda wish it was a regular round shield, instead of the weird looking targe. More than that though, the helmet is just a bummer. The only viking class with a full face helmet. Why? It doesn't look cool. Also the only one who doesn't get an aventail for the helmet. It just sits on the top part of her head, no neck protection at all. I hope there are some seriously better ones, preferably without horns, because that original one is terrible.

Again, War of the Vikings gets it.

I like the look of For Honors Valkyrie, I think she looks awesome.

I actually think the mask looks awesome. But I imagine that the helmet is customizable, so as you get higher levels you can get different aesthetics.

Kinda close Valhalla would better be described as the realm of odin. As the Vikings had many different gods all with a different realm that you could go to after you died. So Valhalla was basically the afterlife realm for warriors who died in battle.
