Ubisoft say nah, no Steam Achievements for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla snuck onto Steam last week, but Ubisoft say they won’t be adding Steam Achievements. You can still unlock 70 of the things via Ubisoft Connect, which launches automatically when you boot the game up on Steam anyway – so the only functional difference is that your achievements won’t all be in the same place. People don’t love that, which is fair, but let’s keep our heads now. Read more

Ubisoft games are coming back to Steam

Several Ubisoft games are heading to Steam, signalling a return to Valve’s storefront for the publisher. In a statement to Eurogamer, Ubisoft confirmed that their open-world history ‘em up Assassin’s Creed Valhalla would be arriving on Steam on December 6th. It’ll be followed by other games from the publisher, although only RTS Anno 1800 and free to play skater Roller Champions have been touted so far. Read more

Clearing map markers in Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla is delicious junk food

A little while back, I went to Cornwall with some friends in the hopes we’d detox on lovely beaches and coastal walks. Somehow, we managed a mental cleanse between horrendous downpours that knocked us sideways and made our socks all soggy. And while we cocooned ourselves in metal and waited for these bouts of terrible weather to subside, we played disgusting amounts of Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla. Over the course of a couple of weeks, we racked up a solid 60+ hours of game time. I’d wake up and see my friend clearing map markers. I’d pop out for a quick…

Assassin’s Creed: Mirage is real, and we’ll find out more next week

Leaked Assassin’s Creed game Mirage is real, Ubisoft have confirmed, and they’re planning to show more of it at next week’s Ubisoft Forward event. All we know for sure so far is that the game exists, it’s definitely called Mirage, and returns to the Middle Eastern setting of the original Assassin’s Creed. I rather like the blue highlights to the assassin’s robes in this one. Read more

Rumoured Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla spin-off Mirage springs an art leak

What looks like promotional material for an unreleased Assassin’s Creed game is being shared online today, starring someone in assassin garb for the first time in seven years. The images show what’s purported to be artwork of something called The Forty Thieves Quest for the rumoured Assassin’s Creed: Mirage, also known by the development name of Rift. Read more

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: Dawn Of Ragnarök review: the Assassin’s Creed you like in a fun new fantasy world

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla enters its endgame phase with its final DLC Dawn Of Ragnarök, the very concept for which is kind of a big honking spoiler, so consider yourself forewarned. The series as a whole is still electing to carry on with that subplot about super-advanced precursor god-people, like a chill friend who you ask to party knowing that they will, univited, bring along their mate who is really into a specific genre of sci-fi and will not stop derailing conversations to talk about it. In Valhalla this manifests as protagonist Eivor, Viking raider and big blonde buff meat sculpture,…

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla has earned over $1 billion, free trial coming next week

In its Q3 2022 call to investors, Ubisoft announced Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is the most lucrative release in the Assassin’s Creed series to date. According to Ubisoft co-founder and CEO Yves Guillemot, revenue for the game surpassed $1 billion as of December 2021. It is the first game in the series to reach such a sum. The game has been a big hit since it was released in 2020, and during its first week of availability, it sold-through more units than any other Assassin’s Creed game during the same period. It is also the top-selling Ubisoft PC launch ever, driven…

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s Dawn Of Ragnarök DLC is full of monsters, magic and giant boars

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is reaching its end-game, by which I mean the upcoming DLC Dawn Of Ragnarök is positioned as an end-game DLC, after last year’s Wrath Of The Druids and The Siege Of Paris expansions. As such, this article is going to contain big honking spoilers for some of the more unbelievable bits of the AC: Valhalla story (which is most of it, tbh), because I really won’t be able to set up talking about the Dawn Of Ragnarok preview presentation I attended the other week without mentioning those spoilers. All right? All right. Read more

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will make you re-install the whole game for its next update

Ubisoft is releasing a new update for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla next week that’ll make you uninstall the whole game before playing. It’s frankly a miracle you can fit most of England and a large swathe of Scandinavia onto a hard drive in the first place, even if it does take up a massive load of space. But if you’re concerned that Ubisoft’s latest viking saga, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, is occupying too much space on your disk, there’s some good news ahead. Ahead of title update 1.4.1, Ubisoft has warned anyone that wants to keep playing Assassin’s Creed Valhalla that they…

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla patch will make you redownload the game to get performance gains

The next patch for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is a big one: 78GB big. Ubisoft today announced that next week’s patch “will “will require players to re-download the entire game as part of a data restructuring.” The whole base game, downloaded all over again. It’s for a good cause, at least. This should make the game load faster and generally run better, which is a nice change for a game to still have the motivation to deliver a year after launch, but maybe not such welcome news if you’re on a slow, throttled, or metered connection.
