Assassin’s Creed Valhalla editions

As you would expect from a Ubisoft game and major triple-A title, there are several editions you can buy, including some exclusive retailer ones.

After the glory of the trailer, it’s safe to say you should get your pre-order in!

Let’s explore what you get for your money…

Limited Edition

The cheapest edition out there to pre-order right now is on Amazon and strictly for PS4 and Xbox One.

The Limited Edition comes with The Berserker Settlement Pack, The Hati Wolf Mount & A Set of Runes – as well as the base game.

A pre-order of this edition gets you a bonus mission “The Way of the Berserker” too.

Standard Edition

As you’d expect, this is just the base game.

At £54.99 for Xbox One and PS4. If you pre-order it you do get access to a bonus mission “The Way of the Berkerker” though.

Drakkar Edition

This one is a UK retail GAME exclusive.

At just £57.99 the Drakkar Edition is pretty good value. It comes with the base game and The Berserker Longship Pack which gives you a unique figurehead and set of new sails for your ship.

You also get a new skin to customise your raven (cool) and a set of runes to sharpen the weapons or improve the gear of your choice.

And a pre-order still gets you “The Way of the Berserker” bonus mission.

Gold Edition

At £84.99 the Gold Edition is a little more pricy.

You get a copy of the Assassin’s Creed Valhalla game but also the Season Pass – which seemingly gives you access to upcoming DLC and extra missions. It also says you get an “immersive Story Mission, available at Launch”.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla release date

There is no firm release date for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla just yet.

However, Ubisoft did give us the “Holiday 2020” window – the same window as next-gen consoles.

We do know the game will be available on current-gen Xbox One and PS4, as well as Xbox Series X, PS5, and PC.

Is the hidden blade coming back to Assassin’s Creed Valhalla?

After its absence in much of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, the hidden blade is finally returning to the game!

In the trailer, we watched our protagonist, Eivor, use his hidden blade to triumph over a might foe when defeat seemed a certainty.

Fingers crossed we will get it early and it will be a focal point of combat once again.
