Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will run in 4K and will have 60fps resolution on the PS5, according to a report released by Eurogamer. The news comes after Microsoft confirmed that the game will be running on the same frame rate and resolution for their Xbox Series X|S consoles, meaning all next generation systems will have that option for players to use and enjoy when the game releases.
Additionally, there is a warning posted on the Eurogamer article for those who buy physical editions of Valhalla – Don’t but a physical PS4 version if you plan to continue the game on the PS5 afterwards.
Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla will appear shortly before the new consoles with this release, both physically and digitally. If you buy them for the old consoles, both versions are upwardly compatible with the new PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X / S platforms at no additional cost. But, there is a little catch: If you buy a physical version of Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla, you have to insert the disc into the new console. So: Don’t buy it on disc for PlayStation 4 if you plan to use a PS5 digital afterwards. With the digitally purchased versions, it doesn’t matter, you can play them on the old as well as the new platform.
