Graphics on the Xbox Series X

Is Assassin's Creed Valhalla on Xbox Series X going to look as amazing as we 're hoping it will?

Well, let's look at what we know about the next gen console first.

One feature of the Xbox Series X is ray-tracing. What is ray-tracing? Well put simply it makes in-game lighting look far more realistic.

Lighting makes a huge difference in games and can really make or break the atmosphere - especially for more subtle and quieter moments.

We have our fingers crossed that Ubisoft will be utilising this to their full advantage with the upcoming game.

8K and up to 120fps

Microsoft claims that the Xbox Series X will be able to run games in 4K resolution at 60 fps (frames per second).

They also say that there is there could be the possibility to run games at 120 fps and 8K also.

With the Xbox One being able to run at up to 60fps, we could expect to see a much smoother running version of Assassin's Creed Valhalla on the next gen console.

This will be very welcome for fans of the series, who enjoy the slick, dynamic and fluid combat.

It could also makes facial animations and everything else in the Valhalla world come to life in a way never seen before.

Loading times

The Xbox Series X boasts a 1 TB SSD. What this means is that loading times will be very quick indeed.

If this translates into both loading at the start of the game and loading the enormous map, we're in for a treat.

Again, it could be the case that the Xbox Series X version will be a real knockout in terms of performance, graphics and playability.
