Assassins Creed: Valhalla To Launch Earlier Than Expected

Shortly after Microsoft revealed the price and release date of their next generation console, Assassins Creed: Valhalla announced plans to launch on the same day.

Assassin's Creed: Valhalla is already shaping up to be a huge step forward in both gaming and storytelling, as the title will reportedly feature rap battles, drinking contests, and in a new report, brothels and even halucinogens. Now the newest installment of Ubisoft's long-running franchise has given fans more good news.

Shortly after Microsoft revealed that their new Xbox Series X would launch on November 10 for $499, the official Assassin's Creed Twitter revealed that its title would launch with the new console. 

The Tweet revealed that the game would be released for Xbox Series X/S and One, PlayStation 4, Stadai and PC. As some may have noticed, the PlayStation 5 was not included on this list. 

However, this is only due to the fact that Sony has yet to release a date or even price range for their new console. Based on their feature during the PS5 event earlier this year, as well as their statement on Twitter: "Build the legend of a Viking raider on any console."

Assassin's Creed Valhalla release date

Despite an earlier release date for the Viking adventure, production of this new title has not been smooth sailing for Ubisoft. In August, the creative director behind the game was fired, as well as many other employees, after reports of toxic and sexist culture and even sexual misconduct within the workplace.

Valhalla was originally slated to release on November 17, and this earlier release date isn't all that the team is looking to give to fans. According to the aforementioned Tweet, players will be able to upgrade from Xbox One to Xbox Series X at no extra cost, meaning that players will not have to purchase the game twice, or even restart their save.

This is a similar promise that Sony made concerning the PS5, claiming that players would be able to pick up where they left off on the new console, without buying another copy of the game. 

However, as PlayStation still has yet to reveal any concrete information about their console, this new announcement from Assassin's Creed will cause them to lose more of a consumerbase. Also consider the fact that Sony has been very open on their reduced production rates in 2020, which means that some fans may not get to purchase a console. 

As all of this news begins to stack against Sony, players might begin to migrate to Xbox, unless a PS5 release date and price are revealed soon.
