Assassin’s Creed Valhalla launches on November 10 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X and S. It will also be coming to PlayStation 5, but the console doesn’t launch until November 12 at the earliest. That isn’t a lot of time between now and then, and we’ve all got some serious gaming to do if we want to get ready for the release date of one of the biggest games of the year. The game is going to be absolutely incredible and is probably the best Assassin’s Creed to date, but if you’re not ready for it on day one, then you need to do something about it.
Like you, I’ve got a few games to catch up on before Assassin’s Creed Valhalla releases. I usually replay the entire series every year, but I haven’t had time in 2020. That’s my problem though, and I’m not expecting everyone else to be doing something similar. If you are though, you’d better hurry up and finish those games. Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is going to have a lot of content to get through all on its own. So finishing all your games is one thing, but what else do you need to do to get ready for the game’s launch?
I’d say that you should do at least a little research into Viking history. I’ve been reading up on a couple of bits here and there, just so I vaguely understand what’s going on. With Assassin’s Creed 3, I was lost because I know nothing about American history. I don’t want that to be the case again though, which is why I’ve been studying in the lead up to this next release in the series. There are loads of resources out there, even if you only watch the TV show Vikings, because that’s got a lot in there that you could learn from.
Finally, I think it would be prudent to clear some space on your hard drives. If you can’t install Assassin’s Creed Valhalla as soon as it arrives, you’ve done something wrong. I’ve got the game for Xbox Series X, and my new console arrives with it on November 10. I’m hoping that means that I’ve got loads of space for the game, so I’m safe. You might not be though, so get on it.
