Assassin's Creed Valhalla Release Date Confirmed
The next Assassin's Creed game arrives this November on PC, PlayStation 4, Stadia, and Xbox One.
Following a prior leak and confirmed during Ubisoft Forward, the publisher announced the Assassin’s Creed Valhalla release date: It will launch on November 17 for PC, PlayStation 4, Stadia, and Xbox One.
A release date for Assassin's Creed Valhalla on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X has yet to be confirmed. But with Valhalla taking advantage of Xbox’s Smart Delivery service, those who purchase the game on November 17 for Xbox One can upgrade to Xbox Series X for free when it arrives this holiday. The game will launch on PS5 as well, with the Ubisoft Store confirming Valhalla will be a free upgrade on Sony's next-gen system. However, if you purchase a physical PS4 version, you'll need to have that disc inserted into your PS5.
The publisher also shared official gameplay for Valhalla during Ubisoft Forward. The gameplay reveal, embedded above, shows Valhalla's more-sophisticated enemy AI, the various combat abilities you'll have access to, some of the locations you'll conquer and visit, and much more. The Ubisoft Forward post-show showcased additional details, including the fact that you can recruit a cat.

Valhalla was one of several games featured during Ubisoft Forward, but as announced just prior to the show, Ubisoft did not address the abuse allegations that the company is currently facing.
