Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: How to Find the Prodigy Easter Egg
The world of Assassin's Creed Valhalla is full of successful Easter Eggs. With a tribute, the developers honor the deceased singer Keith Flint of the electro band The Prodigy. We'll show you where you can find the Easter Egg.
Assassin's Creed Valhalla does a lot right and more importantly: a lot of fun, as our review of the open-world roleplaying game from Ubisoft proves. Typical for the series, the huge game world of the Viking adventure comes up with several successful Easter Eggs and allusions. One of them revolves around the cult band The Prodigy.
Assassin's Creed Valhalla: The Prodigy Easter Egg
In Assassin's Creed Valhalla, protagonist Eivor Wolfsmal and his clan set out to find a new home in England. You will explore the different kingdoms of the island. For the Prodigy Easter Egg, you have to travel to the kingdom of Essex - the home of the electro band around front man Keith Flint, who died in March 2019.
Pretty much in the middle of the kingdom, between Santa Maria's Abbey and the town of Colcestre, you'll find a puzzle world event that includes the Assassin's Creed Valhalla The Prodigy Easter Egg.
There are some musicians playing, whose singer bears a striking resemblance to the deceased Brit. If you decide to dance to the music of the group, you will notice some references to the main songs of The Prodigy. After all, virtual Keith speaks of an omen or sings "Smack my bishop" - a reference to the cult hit "Smack my bitch up" from 1997.
If you still don't realize that this is a reference to the band, then the name of the world event will convince you, because it is called "The Prodigy".
This Easter egg is just one of many you can find in the game. Others include Kojima's game Death Stranding, Harry Potter, or the Lord of the Rings.
