Ubisoft finally unveiled the next mainline entry in the Assassin’s Creed franchise. Dubbed Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, the new open-world adventure will transport players to the Viking Age. In addition to releasing on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, Valhalla will be available on both next-gen consoles: PS5 and Xbox Series X. This means Valhalla will be playable on a whopping six platforms (including Stadia). As an Assassin’s Creed game, you can bet Valhalla has multiple special editions to choose from when pre-ordering. All four editions are available to pre-order now on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is set in the ninth century in a period of turmoil for the Vikings. You play as Eivor, a Viking raider who leads their clan away from the war-torn homeland of Norway on an adventure to England. Eivor can be played as male or female, and Ubisoft promises its combat will take cues from Viking fighting styles, with a reworked combat system that includes dual-wielding and more enemy variety. Like recent iterations of the franchise, Valhalla will have a season pass that grants access to post-launch DLC.
Valhalla will release this holiday on PS5, Xbox Series X, PS4, Xbox One, The Epic Game Store, Uplay and Uplay+, and Stadia. So far, we’ve only seen pre-order listings for the Xbox One, PS4, and PC versions of the game. It seems likely that those looking to pre-order on Xbox Series X or PS5 may have to wait longer to lock in their pre-order. Xbox users, however, will be able to buy one copy of Valhalla to play on both Xbox One and Xbox Series X. We’ll update this article with more pre-order links and pricing when those become available.
