Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is one of the most anticipated games this year. Together with current game consoles, it will be released for Xbox Series X/S and PS5 on November 10, 2020.
In terms of running games at high resolution, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X have similar performance. Therefore, the debate surrounding PS5 and Xbox Series X has been greatly reduced to the loading time of any game console.
YouTuber JorRaptor compared the fast travel time and startup time of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla on two next-generation consoles:
At first glance, PS5 seems to eclipse Xbox Series X when loading Ubisoft’s latest action RPG. However, understanding some key aspects of the two consoles helps us to better analyze and compare.

PS5 loads AC: Valhalla is faster than Xbox Series X; does it display actual pictures?
This is the load time of AC: Valhalla on two next-generation consoles:
PS5– 51.93 seconds
Xbox Series X-1 minute 26 seconds
It’s worth noting that PS5 skipped some loading screens that are different from Xbox Series X. Microsoft’s next-generation console displays multiple loading screens showing Ubisoft and its engines, increasing the loading time by nearly 30 seconds.
Interestingly, the difference in fast travel time to the same location is small:
PS5– 11.90 seconds
Xbox Series X– 11.83 seconds
Therefore, it is safe to assume that PS5 and Xbox Series X can run Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla the same. PS5’s custom SSD may have a slight advantage in loading games. However, there is no obvious change when playing the game.
How fast are the next generation game consoles compared to current game consoles
JorRaptor also compared the load times of Series X and PS5 with Xbox One X. Not surprisingly, in terms of speed and performance, the current version of the console is similar to the next-generation console.
Xbox One X takes 2 minutes and 50 seconds to load Valhalla, and it takes 50 seconds to move fast in the game. These figures are enough to prove how the next generation of game consoles will completely change the game.
