Refined for the new generation
The game will also improve other aspects such as textures or the quality of shadows. You will also benefit from one of the most important aspects that the new generation of consoles will introduce, the faster loading times. Thanks to SSD technology, upcoming consoles will virtually eliminate load times. Those who purchase the game in the current generation will be able to update for free on PS5 and Xbox Series X / S. This last platform makes use of Smart Delivery, a technology created by Microsoft to facilitate this transition.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will ship in four different editions (Standard, Gold, Ultimate, and Collectors), which are now available for pre-order. Everyone who does will receive a bonus mission, The Berserker Sens, in which they will join this character on his journey of revenge.
