With the launch of the PS5 and Xbox Series X on the horizon the so-called “console war” has never been worse. Social media is filled on a daily basis with Xbots and Sony Fanboys screaming into the void how better their console is and how the other fanbase is beneath them. Sure, there’s a lot of excitement around the launch of new hardware but at the same time, a simple click on a Twitter thread and your eyes will bleed. Ubisoft had to do some unnecessary damage control this week due to a suspect typo in their latest next-gen features post.
The publisher shared information on the Xbox Series X and PS5 and how its upcoming games will take advantage of the console power. However, Ubisoft typed two different things for the Xbox Series X and PS5. The original Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla enhancements read “4K at 60 frames-per-second” when referring to the Xbox Series X and “4K and 60 frames-per-second” when referring to the PS5.
Of course, this sparked the Xbots uprising with users sticking it to PS5 fans claiming the console cannot handle 4K 60fps at the same time. They claimed the “and” referred to two different game settings users will have to choose from. Large Xbox-related social media accounts jumped on the bandwagon too such as Xbox News stating that the “Xbox Series X is the only next-gen console that is confirmed to be 4K “at” 60 FPS, not 4K “and” 60 FPS”. The tweet was retweeted a couple of thousand times.

We are not sure why Ubisoft originally posted the article with the difference in wording. However, embarrassingly enough, the publisher has since edited the article to feature the same wording as the Xbox Series X. It is now confirmed that both consoles will run Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla “AT” 4K 60 fps.
