‘Assassin’s Creed  Valhalla’ opens for preorder and to launch a week before the scheduled date

Assassin’s Creed  Valhalla which was originally announced with a 17 November release date, Valhalla will release on PS4, Xbox One, and PC (via Uplay and the Epic Games Store) on 10 November to match the Xbox One Series X and Series S release date. Valhalla will be available on both next-gen consoles: PS5 and Xbox Series X. This means Valhalla will be playable on a whopping six platforms (including Stadia). As an Assassin’s Creed game, you can bet Valhalla has multiple editions to choose from when preordering.

 With so many games — including Xbox flagship Halo Infinite — being delayed, anyone who gets the console on launch is going to need all the games they can get. Also, the original release date would have put the game just before the release of Cyberpunk 2077, which (while I’m not a convert personally) has had a much longer time to build up hype than Valhalla and would no doubt be a higher priority for a lot of gamers. Now at least Valhalla has a bit of breathing room.

Since Valhalla was first announced, Ubisoft has been under scrutiny for its workplace culture. Valhalla’s creative director was fired after an external investigation into his conduct, a month after he stepped down from the role. Several other executives who were accused of workplace abuse have also left the company or been fired.In July, CEO Yves Guillemot issues a public statement and promised structural changes, though he later tried to dodge responsibility by placing the blame on others, saying he “betrayed the trust” he placed in them.
