Looks like it truly is a big day in Valhalla for fans of the Assassin’s Creed franchise, as Ubisoft happily shares the news that Assassin’s Creed Valhalla has become the biggest Assassin’s Creed game launch in history!

With favorable review scores to its name and launching on the same week as the Xbox Series X|S and PS5, Ubisoft has nothing but grateful words to share to its audience.

“We are truly delighted by the enthusiastic response from players and want to thank the fans for their incredible support.  Delivering this game amid a global pandemic was a true tour de force by our teams and it’s fantastic to see players enjoying the game so much,” said Julien Laferrière, producer on Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. “Launch is only the beginning and we have robust content plans for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla that will keep players immersed in their epic Viking saga for a long time to come.”

As the newest game set during a fictional historical representation of the Viking invasion of England, AC Valhalla puts players in control of the raider Eivor — who leads the Viking armies to conquer new lands and establish settlements, all while the secret and long running war between the Assassins and Templars rages on from behind the scenes.
