Assassin's Creed Valhalla Is $50 For Cyber Monday

Ubisoft's brand-new Assassin's Creed game is on sale for Cyber Monday, but the deal ends soon.

10 Comments

Assassin's Creed Valhalla was recently discounted for the first time since its very recent release, and now, while slightly pricier, it's on sale for Cyber Monday. GameStop has Valhalla's PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, and Xbox One on sale for $50 for Monday only. That's $10 off a game that only came out a couple of weeks ago, including the next-gen versions (which are included as free upgrades if you buy the current-gen versions).

Even if you passed on the game at first, you might want to pick it up now that it's on sale. If you do, you'll be able to take advantage of the recently launched Valhalla patch, which provides players on next-gen consoles with two options for how to play. One is a mode focused on image quality that targets 4K and 30fps, while the other is a performance mode that targets 60fps.

Set in 873 AD, Assassin's Creed Valhalla follows a Viking named Eivor (whom you can play as male or female) as they leave Norway with their clan to travel to England. As with previous Assassin's Creed games, Valhalla's modern-day storyline is intertwined with the historical events of the game, and it "brings a satisfying finish to the current saga of the franchise," associate editor Jordan Ramée wrote in his Assassin's Creed Valhalla review.

"Despite its strong connection to past games, Assassin's Creed Valhalla is more than capable of standing on its own. It takes a little while to build momentum, but when it hits its stride, Valhalla is a confident Assassin's Creed title that takes a few narrative risks which, as a whole, pay off," he wrote. "Eivor is a good hero with an identity that drives the mystery behind the main narrative, and she shines in the self-contained arc structure of Valhalla's story. The supporting cast may not shine as brightly, but it's easy to forgive that when exploring England and discovering new nuggets of worldbuilding is so rewarding."

Ubisoft recently confirmed Assassin's Creed Valhalla is the biggest game launch in the series' history, selling more units in its first week than any other entry. It's also the top-selling Ubisoft PC launch ever, according to the publisher.

Cyber Monday 2020 deals are drawing to a close, but the deals aren't entirely over. There's still time to grab Star Wars: Squadrons for $17, Final Fantasy VII Remake for $25, and Watch Dogs Legion for $30.
