Another Ubisoft game, another raft of leaks. It seems that Ubisoft just cannot avoid their games and announcements having massive leaks before the company can announce the details themselves. Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is no different, with gameplay footage of the game leaking throughout the last week, as well as an Instagram post going live that confirmed a supposed November release date. Now, with Ubisoft Forward out of the way, we have official confirmation that Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will indeed release this November.

As part of the confirmation of Assassin Creed Valhalla’s release date, we got our first good look at the game itself, after previous showings on the game stuck to CG trailers or extremely small snippets of gameplay. We got to witness Eivor stealthily splitting the skulls of the English with their axe, while also getting a good look at the combat in the game. There’s a much bigger focus on meaningful combat and not wildly swinging your weapons, with a stamina meter introduced in a series first. As far as the world goes, the area we saw looked relatively landlocked, which makes sense given we’re moving from the Islands of Greece in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, to the lands of the English.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will officially release on November 17th, 2020 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, with PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X versions also releasing at an undetermined time. For more information, check out the game’s official website.
