It’s the biggest Assassin’s Creed launch till date according to Ubisoft.
Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed Valhalla has been setting some big records for the company. Its first week launch sales were higher than any other title in the series during the same period. It’s now the biggest Assassin’s Creed launch in the franchise’s history.
Ubisoft also confirmed that it was the top-most selling Ubisoft PC launch, resulting in all-time record sales on the Ubisoft Store. In a press release, producer Julien Laferriere stated that, “We are truly delighted by the enthusiastic response from players and want to thank the fans for their incredible support. Delivering this game amid a global pandemic was a true tour de force by our teams and it’s fantastic to see players enjoying the game so much. Launch is only the beginning and we have robust content plans for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla that will keep players immersed in their epic Viking saga for a long time to come.”
A couple of interesting stats from players were also revealed, like how they had travel over four million kilometers till now. Over 55 million buildings had been unlocked in the settlement while over 3.5 million games of Orlog were won thus far. In terms of sales numbers, it’s still too early for the majority of outlets. But it debuted strong in the UK with first week physical sales putting it above the launch of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, which is genuinely unheard of.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is out now for Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, PS5, Google Stadia and PC.
