Although Assassin’s Creed Valhalla has not been announced during yesterday’s Ubisoft Forward event, the official launch date for the game has been unveiled.
There has been almost nothing about the upcoming title that has not leaked a few times before the event, including gameplay clips and release date, which it’s been confirmed to have been accurate.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is expected to be available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, and Stadia on November 17th, with the next-generation consoles’ versions arriving at launch. That is the same week as Cyberpunk 2077, which is rather not a good strategy.
Still, people are still wondering why Ubisoft decided to announce the release date for Watch Dogs Legion and Far Cry 6 during their event this weekend but said nothing about Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s launch date. Later on, however, the date appeared on the official website and then in the extended look at the game.
Fans are also wondering whether the release date is the same as that of the next-gen consoles, but there’s no confirmation of that for now. However, after so many complaints about the disappointing gameplay reveal event that took place a few weeks back, the developers released new gameplay footage that is much more detailed.
The main point is that Valhalla is very different from the original Assassin’s Creed games, as it hardly has any parkouring and most of the stealth revolving around wearing a hood and fitting in the crowd.
In addition, you don’t have regeneration health anymore and have to find and eat food yourself, and there’s a charisma meter to check while talking to people and selling your lies.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla also has some other fun things, such as Viking rap battles, a fishing mini-game, and the possibility to take your cat with you on a raid. This is what Vikings apparently used to do.
