The power of next-gen?

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Will Be ‘At Least’ 30 FPS On Xbox Series X

It’s been confirmed that Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, the next addition to the AC franchise, is currently running at 30 FPS on the Xbox Series X. The upcoming title was recently revealed through some pretty awesome-looking cinematic trailers, but if you were hoping for a high framerate, you might be out of luck.

The news comes from Eurogamer Portugal, where Ubisoft confirmed the game will have a framerate of “at least 30 FPS,” and will run at a 4K resolution.

For reference, 2018’s Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is capped at 30 FPS across all of its console releases, and more was expected for the next generation of console gaming.

The statement to Eurogamer Portugal reads as follows (translated): “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.”

You can now pre-order your copy of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla now for PS4 and Xbox One.

Though the news may seem a little disappointing to many, it’s important to note that the title is still months away from its Fall 2020 release, so we could be seeing some changes somewhere down the line. Also, I don’t know about you, but that wording does suggest there’s some scope for a higher framerate.

During last week’s Xbox Series X presentation, Valhalla’s framerate wasn’t mentioned, while the likes of DiRT 5 was proudly announced to be 120 FPS.

Maybe framerate is the reason we didn’t see any Valhalla gameplay in the Valhalla gameplay trailer…
