'Assassin's Creed Valhalla' And 'Watch Dogs: Legion' Next-Gen Release Dates Updated

Ubisoft has confirmed that Assassin's Creed Valhalla and Watch Dogs: Legion will be next-gen launch titles. Valhalla has been moved up a week to meet the Xbox Series X at launch on November 10th, while Watch Dogs: Legion will launch on current-gen platforms and be available for both Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 on their respective release days.

We still aren't sure exactly when the PlayStation 5 is set to launch, but with Xbox Series X and the cheaper Xbox Series X dropping November 10th, we can assume that Sony's next-gen hardware won't be far behind. Ubisoft's upcoming open-world adventures will be ready whenever it arrives though, that much is clear.

Ubisoft has also confirmed that Valhalla will run significantly better on Xbox Series X than first thought. A few months back the company said that the open-world viking RPG would run at "at least" 30fps at 4K resolution on the console, but 4K/60fps has now been promised. Ubisoft has yet to comment on how either Valhalla or Legion will perform on the PS5.

"In addition, Assassin's Creed Valhalla and Watch Dogs: Legion will both leverage the consoles power by offering higher resolution textures and improved shadow quality to players, along with clutter density on Assassin's Creed Valhalla," Ubisoft says. "Both games will be taking advantage of the Direct Storage, benefiting from faster loading times and a smoother world transversal experience."

We've not got long to wait for either game, then. It'll certainly be interesting to see how both titles stack up when the inevitable current/next-gen comparisons come in.

Assassin's Creed Valhalla was recently rated "M for Mature" by the ESRB in the US. The official description paints a pretty vivid picture, revealing that the upcoming game features bloody decapitations, drug use, and even a mission (or several missions) set in a brothel.

"Players explore open-world environments, perform missions (e.g., hunting for items, battling enemies), and use stealth to discreetly kill human targets," the summary reads. "Players also use swords, axes, arrows, and siege weapons to kill multiple enemies (e.g., soldiers, mythic boss characters) in frenetic melee-style combat."

All that's left to do now is wait, and decide whether or not we're going to take the plunge and embrace Assassin's Creed Valhalla and Watch Dogs: Legion on our next-gen consoles, or give the current-gen one last adventure before bowing out.
