Assassin's Creed Valhalla will be releasing later this year, and has been confirmed as a cross-generational game. It will be available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, but the PS5 and Xbox Series X. The game is one of the biggest games announced for PS5 and Xbox Series X, and being one of the torch runners for next-gen consoles, there's a lot of expectations. However, recently it failed to meet these expectations.
According to Ubisoft, Assassin's Creed Valhalla won't run at 60 FPS on Xbox Series X, which tells us it won't do so on any other system either. However, very high-end gaming PCs will be able to see the 60FPS frame rate. Instead, it looks like the team has prioritized resolution, because while it will be held back to 30 FPS, it will run at 4K.
Ubisoft does say "currently," which means we may see a change to 60FPS after all, but with the game only a year away, its unlikely. Xbox and PlayStation gamers looking forward to PS5 and Xbox Series X are looking forward to 4K at 60 FPS. And some games will deliver this. However, it's-up to developers to utilize the power of both systems, which means plenty of games may just settle for 30 FPS."Currently, we can guarantee that Assassin's Creed Valhalla will run at least 30 FPS," said Ubisoft while speaking to Eurogamer. "Assassin's Creed Valhalla will benefit from faster loading times, allowing players to immerse themselves in history and the world without friction. Finally, Assassin's Creed Valhalla will benefit from improved graphics made possible by the Xbox Series X, and we can't wait to see the beautiful world we're creating in stunning 4K resolution."
Assassin's Creed Valhalla is in development for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC, and is currently slated to release worldwide sometime this holiday season.
