Return to the world of the Assassin order in Ubisoft Montreal’s Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. The open-world, action-adventure game takes place during the Viking invasions of Britain, where players will take control of Eivor, a Norweigan raider.
Ubisoft Montreal assures Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will give gamers a new look at the Vikings. Eivor, for instance, can be played as either male or female — both of which had rights during this time in the 800s CE. This choice allows players to be the Eivor they want to be and help create their history.
Here’s everything that’s known about Assassin’s Creed Valhalla‘s various buying options so far.
Ubisoft Montreal provided a release window of holiday 2020 for Valhalla. Launching between Thanksgiving and the New Year is perfect for several reasons. The holiday season is an excellent time for consumer products, as many are giving and receiving gifts. The holiday window will also allow Ubisoft Montreal to launch Assassin’s Creed Valhalla with next-gen consoles.
Currently, the Xbox Series X and the PlayStation 5 have a release window of holiday 2020 as well. Releasing Assassin’s Creed Valhalla at that same time gives early adopters a shiny new game to play on their shiny new consoles.
Like almost every other triple-A title, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will have multiple versions up for grabs. A $59.99 Standard Edition will be available on Xbox Series X, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Stadia and PC.
For the player that wants a little more, the Gold Edition for $99.99 will include the base game and a season pass, which will bring players new content to explore and new gear to equip later. The Gold Edition will only be available for digital download. However, a $109.99 Gold Edition Steelbook for PlayStation and Xbox One will be available for physical purchase, which will include the base game, the season pass and an exclusive steelbook cover.
The upper-tier Ultimate Edition of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will cost $119.99. This version includes the base game, season pass and the ultimate pack. Inside the Ultimate Pack is the Berserker Gear for Eivor, Berserker Settlement items, the Berserker Longship and a set of runes for use in-game. Gamestop will also have an exclusive Ultimate Steelbook Edition for PlayStation and Xbox, which will include the steelbook cover.
The official Assassin’s Creed Valhalla fanatic should look into the Collectors Edition. For $199.99, buyers will get Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, the season pass, the ultimate pack and a set of physical collector’s items. These include a male Eivor Viking statuette, selected game soundtrack, a female Eivor figurine, three lithographs and a certificate of authenticity, as well as everything from the Ultimate edition. The Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Collector’s Edition is exclusive to the Ubisoft Store.
Pre-ordering any version of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will unlock the Way of the Berserker bonus mission. This mission will see Eivor join a legendary Berserker who seeks revenge.
