Spoiler caution image

Meet Otta Sluggasson in a small estate near Lake Dudmastun in Sciropescire, southwest of Tonnastadir. When you first find him, three kids cheer him up, calling him something like a “stone hammer” or a “rock rocker.” He shakes the club, throws stones in the air, hits the stones in the club, and wears clothes that look like old-fashioned baseball uniforms.

Talking to Otta triggers a world event (it’s Valhalla In the case of “side quest”). Your goal is not to play baseball with him. Rather, you need to use a bow to attack a set amount of targets within a set time. The number you’re aiming for is obviously his best time at the same shooting range, except that he’s using a “rock hit”.

Of course, baseball wasn’t invented until nearly a thousand years later. Valhalla Occur. Legend has it that the creation of this sport is most commonly attributed to Abner Doubleday, who hit the ball with a stick in the 1830s. Some historians say The baseball can be traced back a century ago when a similar game was played on an American colonial farm. Whatever version you believe in, it’s no exaggeration to say that baseball didn’t exist in a recognizable way until well after the 9th century. Valhalla It will be done in.

Sluggasson’s most eyebrow-raising feature, however, is his accent.He is not playing sports ValhallaGeneral Rhythms: Scandinavian, Danish, Anglo-Saxon. He sounds like a 25-year-old man from Scottsdale, Arizona.

This is because Otta Sluggason is voiced by Scottsdale-born real-life American baseball player Cody Bellinger. Apparently the guy is pretty good.He and his team, the Los Angeles Dodgers, won Some kind of championship Recently, and Bellinger himself Won the MVP Award last year.

This is a feature of Ubisoft that displays Bellinger on the screen and shows the motion capture process for inventing baseball 1,000 years before it actually appeared.
