Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will be a launch title for the Xbox Series X and Series S, Ubisoft has confirmed, with the sequel now releasing earlier on November 10. It will also launch for PlayStation 4, PC, and Google Stadia on the same day. A date for PlayStation 5 was not mentioned, given that Sony has yet to announce a release date for its next-gen console.

This new date moves the launch up by a full week, with Ubisoft previously announcing a November 17 date for their cross-generation Assassin’s Creed sequel. The game will also support Microsoft’s Smart Delivery program, meaning you will get all next-gen upgrades for free when moving to either the Xbox Series X or Series S. PS4 players who move to PS5 will also get next-gen upgrades for free.
The launch date for the PS5 version of the game is still unconfirmed, considering Sony has yet to announce when it will hit shelves or how much it will cost. Microsoft announced the Xbox Series S this week after months of speculation about the lower-priced console. It aims to deliver the same experience as the Xbox Series X albeit at lower resolutions.
