Assassin’s Creed Valhalla review roundup – All the scores

By Alex Calvin, Monday, 9 November 2020 16:48 GMT

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s release is just a knife’s edge away, so we’ve rounded up all the reviews for Ubisoft’s latest huge open-world action-adventure to see what the critical consensus is.

Having headed to Ancient Egypt and Ancient Greece, this new Assassin’s Creed title is set around the Viking invasion of Britain, with players taking on the role of either a male or female Eivor as they – as all series heroes do – become tangled in the war between Assassins and Templars.

Our review isn’t live just yet, but will be going up later this week. In the meantime, you can check out our hands-on previews that we’ve had with Valhalla so far.

“Ubisoft has nailed the world, the music, and made some smart refinements to how it plays. The early build I played was a bit janky in parts, though, and it feels like the game could do with a fair bit more polish at this point. Still, I’m excited to see the final thing when it releases later this year.”

The rest:

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla launches on Tuesday, November 10 for Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Stadia, before coming to PlayStation 5 on November 12 or 19, depending on where in the world you live.
