Assassin's Creed Valhalla Will Support Xbox's Smart Delivery Service

You won't need to buy AC Valhalla twice on Xbox One and Xbox Series X thanks to Smart Delivery.


While Ubisoft has yet to make an official announcement on the matter, new Assassin's Creed Valhalla product details reveal that the upcoming open-world action-RPG will "leverage" Xbox's Smart Delivery service. In other words, you only need to buy AC Valhalla once on Xbox One to get the Xbox Series X version, and next week's Inside Xbox livestream will give us our first look at its gameplay.

Smart Delivery will allow Xbox One users, should they upgrade to the Xbox Series X when it drops this holiday, to transfer their games to the next-gen console. There's a catch, though: the feature has to be enabled by the development studio. According to Microsoft, the company intends to use Smart Delivery for all of its first-party games, including Halo Infinite, Senua's Saga: Hellblade II, and more.
