Assassin’s Creed Valhalla for PS5: Release Date, Graphics, FPS, and more
We take a look at what to expect from the Viking era RPG with Sony’s entry onto the next-gen battlefield.
Is Assassin’s Creed Valhalla on PS5? Absolutely!
Let’s take a look at what you could expect on release.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla for PS5
Ubisoft officially announced that there will be an Assassin’s Creed Valhalla on PS5 – which is great news!
However, we haven’t yet seen official gameplay on the PS5 itself, unlike with the Xbox Series X.
There is no official release date of the PS5 version just yet.
What to expect with Assassin’s Creed Valhalla on PS5
Whilst the gameplay will likely stay the same across the platforms, PS5 next-gen technology could be utilised in many ways with Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.
We’re still yet to see first-hand as to how the PS5 performs with loading times, however, it’s reported that they could be up to 18 times faster than the PS4.
What this could mean, is that we’ll see environments, cutscenes, and action come together fluidly without any unnecessary and unnatural pauses.
Up to 8K gaming
With the PS5’s Max Output Resolution being 8K, we can expect some seriously stunning visuals from the game.
Whether or not the game will playable in 8K is up for debate, however it should be able to handle at least 4K.
Either way, we can expect to see combat, animations and environments come alive in a way not yet experienced before on Playstation.
With the PS5 having ray-tracing capabilities, we may see some seriously enhanced lighting in the game.

You need some serious power to be able to support ray-tracing, so we’ll have to see to what extent it features in the final product.
Put simply, the higher the FPS the smoother the animations. Typically, 60 fps gives characters a more realistic feel to their movements, and we’re expecting the game to run in 60 fps.
However, have 4K at 60 fps is again very taxing on a system, so we could see 30 fps at 4K instead.
Most AC titles have been at 30 fps, so this would still look fantastic!
Will it have the edge on the Xbox Series X?
At this time, with no official footage or hands-on with the title on PS5 we wouldn’t able to say!
What seems apparent is that both platforms have some incredible next-gen technology, which will surely be utilised to create a fantastic gaming experience.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is set for release on 17 November 2020, and you can find out everything about pre-orders and editions right here!
