In a time when game after game is getting pushed back well into 2021. It is great to hear that Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, the next instalment in the Assassin’s Creed franchise, will release a tad early on the 10th of November 2020. This is to coincide with the launch of Microsoft’s Next-Gen consoles.
Watch Dogs: Legion actually launches on October the 29th for PS4/Xbox One so that will also be available on Nov 10th for the Series X|S.
Both titles are launching across a variety of platforms, not just Microsoft’s latest. It will be available on PS5 (once it launches), PS4, Xbox One, PC (Via Epic Game Store, Stadia and UPlay).
“We are excited to announce that players will be able to discover Assassin’s Creed Valhalla sooner than expected! We cannot wait to see the world we’ve been creating over the past three years coming to life on all platforms, including on the next generation of consoles with the Xbox Series X | S on 10th November.” said Julien Laferrière, Producer on Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.
With the Xbox Series X | S, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will take full advantage of the enhanced graphics, giving players the opportunity to experience the open world of Norway and England down to the very last detail. On Xbox Series X, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will run at 60 FPS in full 4K resolution.
The near-future London of Watch Dogs: Legion will fully benefit from the Hardware Accelerated Raytracing of the new Xbox Series X | S: from Piccadilly Circus and its giant digital screens to Camden High Street’s neon lights and holograms, the power of real-time ray traced reflections brings a never seen before level of realism to an urban playground.
In addition, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and Watch Dogs: Legion will both leverage the consoles power by offering higher resolution textures and improved shadow quality to players, along with clutter density on Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. Both games will be taking advantage of the Direct Storage, benefiting from faster loading times and a smoother world transversal experience.
Finally, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and Watch Dogs: Legion will leverage the Smart Delivery** technology, allowing players to buy the game once and play it on either Xbox One or Xbox Series X | S on 10th November, 2020. Cross-save functionality between Xbox One and Xbox Series X | S will also be supported on both games so players can keep their progression from one platform to another.Please Join us on your Social Platform of choice
