Ubisoft announced during the Inside Xbox May Episode recently that Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, the next installment in the Assassin’s Creed franchise, will take full advantage of the enhancements offered by the next generation of consoles, including Microsoft’s Xbox Series X. Players can also take a first look at Assassin’s Creed Valhalla gameplay in a trailer that you can check out below.
“As developers, we’re always excited to work with new hardware because it gives us a greater ability to express our creative vision. Assassin’s Creed has always been committed to exploring new technologies and leveraging new consoles abilities to deliver the most immersive experience possible. We are excited to be collaborating closely with Microsoft to bring Assassin’s Creed Valhalla to the Xbox Series X” said Ashraf Ismail, Creative Director of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.
Pushing the Assassin’s Creed experience with the X factor
With the Xbox Series X, Valhalla will take full advantage of its enhanced graphics, giving players the opportunity to experience the open world of Norway and England down to the very last detail. In addition, Valhalla will benefit from faster loading times.
Finally, Valhalla will leverage Smart Delivery technology, allowing players to buy the game once and play it on either Xbox One or Xbox Series X when both the consoles and the game are available.

Honestly, I have to say I was deeply disappointed by the lack of ACTUAL gameplay in the trailer. I think the only gameplay footage involved a crow landing on the main characters shoulder. I could be wrong but I barely saw anything that was cinematic. Now, this could be showing how ridiculously OP the next-gen console is but this was a waste of time.
Gamers should have shown something substantial, instead, we were “treated” to a lot of tell and no show.
