Thanks to a few next-gen features, it looks like we should be excited for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla on the Xbox Series X.

Smart Delivery

Smart Delivery is set for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, which means that if you download the game, you’ll automatically have the next-gen version if you upgrade to Xbox Series X.

It’s the perfect solution if you don’t want to pay twice for the same game!

Downloading the game on Xbox One is a great choice if you’re still saving up to buy the Xbox Series X.

Backwards Compatibility

Thanks to this nifty feature you’ll be able to play the Xbox One disc version of the game on the Xbox Series X.

There’s talk of various performance enhancements to do with stabler frame-rates and fast loading times if you do run the Xbox One disc on the Series X.

However, we haven’t seen this in action with the game just yet.

FPS on Xbox Series X?

The Xbox Series X is capable of playing games at 120fps at 4K.

Now don’t get too excited just yet, as in reality it would be understandable if these two numbers didn’t go hand in hand.

Reportedly, the game will run at a minimum of 30 fps at 4K – which is by no means something to turn your nose up at. In fact, many of the Assassin’s Creed games run at 30 fps at around 1080p – and they look fantastic.

Loading Speeds

The Xbox Series X is a seriously powerful machine on paper, and this certainly extends to loading times.

Loading times are set to be greatly reduced. This means more time playing in the world of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, and less time waiting for the game and its enormous map to load.

We’re looking forward to seeing this in action come Holiday 2020.
