Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s Release Date Moved Up One Week to Match Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S Launch


Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s release date has moved up one week to November 10, 2020, to match the launch of both the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S.Revealed via Assassin’s Creed on Twitter, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will also be released on November 10 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Google Stadia, and PC. It will be available as a launch title for PS5, but we still have yet to hear of its release date.Assassin’s Creed Valhalla was originally scheduled to be released on November 17, 2020, but with the announcements of both Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S’ price and release dates, Ubisoft has decided to ensure fans with these new next-gen consoles will be able to play the latest entry in the Asssassin’s Creed franchise on day one.

In our hands-on with Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, we said it “looks to be, as is the tradition of the series, an iterative update on its predecessors. If the new approach to RPG design and gear-based progression has put you off the series, this slice of the game indicates that you’ll likely be unconvinced by Valhalla’s barely altered direction. But the few changes it makes to those systems suggests developer Ubisoft Montreal may have a newfound confidence in its RPG abilities, and a willingness to embrace more of the genre’s toolset.”
