People will be able to be a viking assassin a little sooner than expected. As part of the flurry of Xbox Series X announcements on September 9, 2020, Ubisoft confirmed that the Assassin’s Creed Valhalla release date is being bumped up from November 17, 2020 to November 10, 2020.
The news came via the series’ official Twitter account. While its text primarily promotes the Xbox Series S and X version, the image accompanying it confirmed that this applies to the release date across the board. It also reminded people there will be a free upgrade to the next-gen version if they purchase an Xbox One copy.
