Assassin's Creed Valhalla: Day One Title Update - Full Notes, Pre-Load, Launch Times and More

Assassin's Creed Valhalla will be the next title in the famous Ubisoft franchise. 

Ubisoft steered away from their yearly model of games, and they are gearing up to make Valhalla the best Assassins Creed title.

Now, we are just a few days away from the release of Valhalla, and the game is looking amazing.

With the recent news of Los Angeles Dodger MVP Cody Bellinger being in the game, we cannot wait to see what other surprises are within.

Ubisoft has gone ahead and posted their day one patch notes for the game!

Let's take a look!

 

Launch Update

It is not uncommon for massive AAA RPG's to release some sort of launch update for when they release all over the world.

Ubisoft took to Twitter to post their notes, they can be viewed here for further reference. 

The notes themselves do not include many changes for the release of Valhalla but outline some vital details. 

One of the keynotes is the file sizes for Valhalla: 

  • Xbox Series X|S: ~45 GB
  • Xbox One: ~44 GB
  • Playstation 5: ~45 GB
  • Playstation 4: ~45 GB
  • PC: ~45 GB

This is rather surprising to a lot of players, as Odyssey was nearly 100 GB on PC when it released a while back.

Now, the game is just under 50 GB; something our hard drives will appreciate.

As well, they have noted the pre-load and launch times for each region in the following image! 

Here are some of the 'Game Improvements' they have also noted in the launch update: 

  • Fine-tuned the balancing of the game
  • Addressed various quest-related nuisances
  • Improved performance and stability
  • Miscellaneous bug fixes

Finally, there is going to be some additional content coming to the game.

This will include: 

  • Added additional localized audio packs. Availability differs per region, consult our article for supported languages to get a full breakdown.
  • The Codex: We’re excited to reveal that the beloved Animus Database will return with Assassin’s Creed Valhalla as “Codex”. The Codex has two parts, the Database & Tutorials.

We are beyond excited for the newest Assassin's Creed title! Let us know if you are as well.
