Is Assassin’s Creed Valhalla on Steam? Release Date, PC, Download, System Requirements, and more
It’s coming to PC, but it appears Ubisoft are taking a different approach this time around.
We’ve got the answer, plus everything you need to know about Assassin’s Creed Valhalla on PC.
Is Assassin’s Creed Valhalla on Steam?
If you get your games on Steam, you’ll have to look elsewhere with this one.
Ubisoft’s official website lists the vast amount of platforms the title will be playable on, however, there is an absence of Steam amongst them.
With such an extensive variety of ways to experience Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, why not on Steam?
A new approach
Assassin’s Creed games have released on Steam in the past, so this decision marks a different approach than seen previously.
Ubisoft will be releasing the game on PC through Epic Games this time around, alongside their own Uplay store.
There are a number of theories behind why exactly Ubisoft made the decision, most of them concerning themselves with the difference in ‘cut’ that Epic Games takes in comparison to Steam.
But importantly, how can you get your hands on Assassin’s Creed Valhalla on PC?
Release Date for PC
While there is no exact date for the release of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Ubisoft has set a time window of Holiday 2020.
But any PC owner knows that your system has to be up to the task to run the game. Here’s what you may need to run Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.
Since we don’t have the official system requirements for the game, we can safely assume that it will be higher than it was for its predecessor.
The last Assassin’s Creed game on PC had a recommended system of:
- Processor: AMD FX-8350 @ 4.0 GHz, Ryzen 5 – 1400, Intel Core i7-3770 @ 3.5 GHz or better
- Memory: 8 GB RAM
- Graphics: AMD Radeon R9 290, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 (4GB VRAM with Shader Model 5.0) or better
- Storage: 46+ GB available space
- Additional Notes: Video Preset: High (1080p)
If your PC meets this, then great! If not, there’s still some time to upgrade ahead of the release.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is certainly looking to be an amazing entry into the series, we even think if it makes good on a few changes it could be the best yet.
