At the Ubisoft Forward digital conference this weekend, Ubisoft announced that Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will release worldwide on 17 November on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and the Epic Games Store and Ubisoft Store on Windows PC, as well as on UPlay+, Ubisoft’s subscription service.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will release on Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 upon the launch of the consoles. Players who purchase Assassin’s Creed Valhalla on Xbox One or PlayStation 4 will be able to upgrade their game to the next-gen version (Xbox Series X or PlayStation 5) at no additional cost.
New gameplay shown at the digital conference illustrates new features, including dual-wielding, raiding, assaults, and open-world activities. Raids will be action-packed and brutal, with players able to take advantage of a new visceral combat system that lets players bash, dismember, and decapitate foes.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is an action role-playing game that places player choice and exploration at the centre of the experience. Throughout the world, players will encounter gameplay challenges, characters with complex stories, and a variety of breathtaking landscapes to experience.
Players will have the ability to customise their character’s hair, tattoos, war paint, weapons and gear, in addition to the option of switching between male or female Eivor at any time. Political alliances, combat decisions, and dialogue choices can influence the world of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, so players must choose wisely to protect their clan’s home and future.
