In a series of unfortunate events, we have yet another colossal Ubisoft leak happen today. An early Instagram upload which also could have been meant for tomorrow leaked Assassins Creed Valhalla release date leaked and some other details in a now-deleted Instagram story.
Assassins Creed Valhalla release date leaked – not a good week for Ubisoft.
In a now deleted Instagram post from Assassins Creed Italy, the game’s release date was revealed.
As with other Ubisoft digital content, uploading it or embedding it useless, so here is a screenshot of the trailer:
The rest of the brief trailer doesn’t show much. It only shows the female protagonist Eivor, sounding a viking horn, and some closeups of her.
The #Likeaviking is going to be the center focus for promotion of the game.
The game is scheduled for release on November 17th, 2020. For the Xbox One and PS4.
Putting it 2 days ahead of CD Projekt Red’s highly anticipated Cyberpunk 2077 for November 19th, 2020.
This is where competition is beginning to heat up. Two mega multiplatform titles competing for shelf space superiority.
Assassins Creed Valhalla is going to be the series taking on the world of Vikings. After taking the world of Spartans and Athenians in 2018, and Egyptians in 2017, Ubisoft is now committing themselves to an entire empire per game.
The numbers game begins.
While the release date puts it at a slight advantage against CD Projekt Red, its worth mentioning that both games will offer Smart Delivery on the Xbox Series X for Xbox One owners of the game.
The same promotion also applies for copies of Cyberpunk 2077 to PS4 owners getting the PS5 version of the game for free.
However, while we know that the offer is currently exclusive to the Xbox One owners getting the Series X version for free, Ubisoft hasn’t yet commented if the same offer will apply for PS4 owners getting the PS5 copy for free.
This could be a big deciding factor for many gamers, because if Assassins Creed Valhalla will only give next-generation benefits to Xbox Owners, PlayStation fans might be more inclined to support Cyberpunk.
With Ubisoft forward less than a day away, we will hopefully find out if Assassins Creed Valhalla will follow the steps of Far Cry 6 and let PS4 owners get the PS5 version for free.
