Ubisoft will release Assassin's Creed: Valhalla on November 10, 2020. Being the twelfth major installment and the twenty-second release in the Assassin's Creed series, it's the successor of the 2018 game Assassin's Creed Odyssey. Set in 873 AD, the game recounts a fictional story of the Viking invasion of Britain.
The game will release for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Series S, and Stadia. Similarly, a PlayStation 5 version is set to be released on November 12. Ubisoft revealed that this new title is going to have a download size of 50.01 GB. The game will also receive a day #1 patch, which will be around 2.1 GB.
We still don't have any online players, viewers, and streaming channels metrics yet but will be comparing it to Assassin's Creed: Odyssey and Assassin's Creed: Origins once it's released.
