Assassin’s Creed Valhalla trailer

You can take a look at the official reveal trailer for the new Assassin’s Creed game right here…

Is Assassin’s Creed Valhalla on Xbox One or Xbox Series X?

Both! The trailer above confirms that Ubisoft’s big new Assassin’s Creed game will span both the current generation and the next generation of Microsoft’s gaming consoles.

This means you’ll be able to play Assassin’s Creed Valhalla on both Xbox One and Xbox Series X – maybe you will even be able to jump from your old console to your new one, using Smart Delivery!

Is Assassin’s Creed Valhalla on PS4 or PS5?

Although that particular trailer hypes up the Xbox side of things, you don’t need to worry if you’re a PlayStation-based gamer. The official Assassin’s Creed website has confirmed that the new game will indeed launch on both PS5 and PS4.

It remains to be seen if Sony has its own Smart Delivery feature that will allow you to transfer games and progress from the PS4 to the PS5, but we really hope that does happen!

Is Assassin’s Creed Valhalla on Nintendo Switch?

Nope. Assassin’s Creed Valhalla has not been announced as a Nintendo Switch game, with the iconic handheld/household hybrid console left out of the announcement altogether.

Of course, this doesn’t mean that we can rule out a Switch port of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla being made at some point in the future, but it doesn’t sound like Ubisoft is planning that right now.

Is Assassin’s Creed Valhalla on Steam?

The official Assassin’s Creed website says that PC gamers will be able to access the game through either the Epic Games Store or the Ubisoft Store at launch. It’s unclear if the game will come to Steam at a later point, but it doesn’t sound like a priority right now.

Is Assassin’s Creed Valhalla on Mac or mobile?

In a weird way, yes! The game will be available on the Google Stadia online platform, which means you will be able to play Assassin’s Creed Valhalla on any computer that can run the Chrome browser – including any Mac – as long as you sign up for Stadia membership and buy the game through Stadia.

Stadia also works on any TV that has a Chromecast Ultra attached, and it even works with select mobile phones – imagine playing Assassin’s Creed Valhalla on a smartphone!

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla release date

“Holiday 2020” is what we’ve been told, which makes it sound a lot like Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will be launch title (or close enough) for the PS5 and the Xbox Series X.

Both next-gen consoles will also launch in the holiday season towards the end of this year, so this could be one of the first games you play on your new console if you’re planning to buy one.
