Earlier this year, there was quite a bit of speculation regarding what the final framerate for Assassin's Creed Valhalla would be on next-generation consoles, with Ubisoft confirming that it would run "at least 30 FPS."
Today, we got an updated answer with some very good news for anyone purchasing an Xbox Series X. In a press release, Ubisoft stated that "On Xbox Series X, Assassin's Creed Valhalla will run at 60 FPS in full 4K resolution."
Assassin's Creed Valhalla also supports Smart Delivery, meaning you can buy the game for Xbox One and enjoy a free upgrade to the Xbox Series X or Xbox Series S version at no extra cost. Both consoles also take advantage of higher-quality effects, improved shadow quality and faster loading times.
The release date for Assassin's Creed Valhalla was moved up and it is now releasing on November 10 for Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One, PC, PS5 and PS4. The Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S are also launching on November 10 at $499 and $299 respectively.

This is great news!! Thanks for sharing, I've been waiting for this!!
Good stuff. It makes perfect sense now that the release was 'moved up' to Nov 10 ... now that we know the consoles themselves will launch on that date as well.
How is this even news? Is anyone surprised that a current gen game can hit 60FPS on a next gen console?
Great news. Series X is absolutely a 4K 60fps console. Any Dev not doing 60fps is lazy. Many multi-player gamess are aiming for 120fps as well. MS has built a beast.
More cusious if it will be 4K 60fps with compromises on graphics or higher graphics with a lower resolution option. Similar to how the One X handles some games.
There will be no compromises. It's RDNA 2, Zen 2 CPU and 12tflops. It's in the 2080TI/3070 ballpark. Maybe a bit higher when the game is fully optimized. This Gen the CPUs in PS4 and Xbox One were huge bottlenecks for framerates. Next Gen the Zen 2 will no longer be a bottleneck for framerates at 60fps. On Series X MS made sure to guarantee the developer with sustained performance of the GPU and CPU. They won't throttle back on either side at all.
