Continuity

On page 22, Styrbjorn is referred to as "Styrbjorn Haraldsson" whereas in-game his father's name is revealed to be Sigvaldi. Furthermore, the comic mini-series Assassin's Creed Valhalla: Song of Glory named his father as Olaf.

On page 29, Basim is said to be an Assassin Mentor due to his red sash, although in-game the Mentor was Rayhan.

On page 80, four bandit archetypes are given as; Militia, Rogue, Pyro, and Destroyer. These archetypes align with the respective in-game equivalents; the unchanged Militia, unchanged Rogue, Fire-Keeper, and Goliath.

On page 168, Rebecca Crane and Shaun Hastings are confirmed to now be a couple.
