The Assassin’s Creed Valhalla release date has been officially confirmed for Tuesday, November 10, 2020, across all platforms.
And while we know when things will be kicking off, some gamers will have to wait longer than others across PS4, Xbox One and PC.
AC: Valhalla is also scheduled to launch on PS5 and Xbox Series X later month, while preload options are already available.
Valhalla is set in the British Isles and puts gamers in the role of Eivor, a fierce Viking raider searching for a home in the hostile lands of England’s Dark Ages.
“The choices you make and alliances you forge along the way will shape the course of your journey.
“As you delve deeper into the conflicts of England, you’ll build an army and assault massive Saxon strongholds to shift the balance of power in the land, all while taking down the widest variety of enemy types yet in an Assassin’s Creed game.
“A land of warring kingdoms, England is filled with riches that are ripe for the taking; use your longship to raid precious resources by river, and use those resources to upgrade and develop your settlement.
“Your settlement will grow and evolve as you play, and will allow you to consult your alliance map to monitor relationships with neighbouring regions and plan your next move.”
