Ubisoft has announced that it will be launching its next Assassin’s Creed title, Valhalla, a week ahead of its schedule. The game’s new launch date is now set for 10 November, instead of 17 November.
If you’re wondering about the new launch date, that’s also the same day Microsoft’s Xbox Series S and Series X launch. That said, the game will still be available for all consoles on the day itself, including the PlayStation 4 (PS4), Xbox One, Google Stadia, and the PC. The latter through UPlay and Epic Games Store. It will also be available on the PlayStation 5, although at this stage, we’re still in the dark over the console’s launch date.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla was first announced earlier this year in May and takes place during the period when Vikings began settling down in the North of England. In-game, players will control Eivor, the main protagonist and Viking Raider who will war against the Anglo-Saxon kingdoms of the time.
All Assassin’s Creed titles have always revolved around a theme, and Valhalla is no exception; the game will feature a blend of Norse and Old English mythology as well, but more importantly, the game will see the return of some familiar features.
