There is no doubt that Assassin’s Creed Valhalla (Creed Valhalla) is a beautifully-looking game, but it can be said that it has not tried its best to promote the next generation of consoles. Unlike Ubisoft’s own Watch Dogs: Legion, this game does not have ray tracing and does not provide true native 4K on either PS5 or Xbox Series X. Well, there seems to be more improvements on high-end platforms.
Of course, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla (Creed Valhalla) will release a series of regular paid and free content updates in 2021, but in a recent Game Informer interview, Ubisoft producer Julien Laferrière hinted at some other improvements to the work .
When looking at Valhalla’s post-launch plan, it is important for me to have quality of life fixes in it and be able to react to new platforms as they will continue to improve. We also got a good welcome on PS5, X series and PC-people will definitely love the high-end features of this game, so we hope to continue to take advantage of this. It doesn’t sound like nonsense or clichés, but to me, it’s listening to what the player base is saying and how it responds to these content and features.
Unfortunately, if you want naval battles to be one of Valhalla’s important content, you will be disappointed. Laferrière explained that according to Ubisoft’s Viking research, excluding them was a deliberate creative decision.
One thing I can say is that naval operations did not make us think that it might work very early. In fact, we found that the Vikings did not engage in many naval battles. We think they might be firing flaming arrows like in the Odyssey. But they just didn’t do that. Therefore, we said: “There is no sea on our map, only rivers… We will treat this ship more like a vehicle.”
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is now available on PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PS4 and PS5.
