Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, the 2020 open-world game from Ubisoft, could be making its way to Xbox Game Pass soon. According to a listing on the Polish Xbox store, the game is tagged with a Game Pass label which could indicate that it will be arriving on the Microsoft subscription service sometime in the near future, though Ubisoft or Xbox haven’t teased or hinted at anything yet.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla originally launched in late 2020 and was praised for its open-world exploration, heavier combat and focus on stealth and assassinations in certain aspects. However, fans felt it continued some of the worst elements of Origins and Odyssey in that it felt too bloated and as a result, lost much of its focus. Despite those criticisms, it still sold considerably well and even appears in the PlayStation Plus Premium library.
Since Origins and Odyssey are already on Xbox Game Pass, it makes sense that Ubisoft – which has a good working relationship with Microsoft – would put its latest installment, Valhalla, on the service too. It’s possible that the label might be an error, but it hasn’t been rectified on the Polish Xbox store yet which only adds to its validity.
The game’s official website provides a description:
“Become Eivor, a Viking raider raised to be a fearless warrior, and lead your clan from icy desolation in Norway to a new home amid the lush farmlands of ninth-century England. Find your settlement and conquer this hostile land by any means to earn a place in Valhalla. England in the age of the Vikings is a fractured nation of petty lords and warring kingdoms. Beneath the chaos lies a rich and untamed land waiting for a new conqueror. Will it be you?”
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is currently available for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and PC.
