What you need to know

  • Assassin's Creed Valhalla takes place during the Dark Ages in England and Norway.
  • According to Ubisoft, it will run "at least 30FPS" on Xbox Series X.
  • It will also support 4K resolution and benefit from faster loading times.

Despite 60FPS being the standard output on Xbox Series X, it looks like one major upcoming title may not hit that benchmark. According to a Ubisoft spokesperson speaking with Eurogamer's Portugal branch, Assassin's Creed Valhalla will run "at least 30FPS" on Xbox Series X.

Ubisoft has always been committed to exploring new technologies, taking advantage of the capabilities of new consoles to deliver the most immersive experience possible, which is why we are excited to be collaborating with Microsoft to bring Assassin's Creed Valhalla to the Xbox Series X.

Currently, we can guarantee that Assassin's Creed Valhalla will run at least 30 FPS. Assassin's Creed Valhalla will benefit from faster loading times, allowing players to immerse themselves in history and the world without friction. Finally, Assassin's Creed Valhalla will benefit of improved graphics made possible by the Xbox Series X, and we can't wait to see the beautiful world we're creating in stunning 4K resolution.

Bear in mind that this is a translation of the quote, but 30FPS seems pretty clear. Still, the door wasn't shut on the possibility of 60FPS. Assassin's Creed Valhalla is still several months from release, and Ubisoft could optimize it by that time to at least offer the option of favoring resolution or frame rate like some current-gen games do right now. It is also set to support 4K resolution and take advantage of the Xbox Series X's SSD for faster loading times.
