The company said on Tuesday that the title has sold through more units in its first week than any other entry in the series, which has sold over 155 million units since debuting in 2007.
The twelfth major instalment in the franchise has also become Ubisoft’s top-selling PC launch, driven by record Ubisoft Store sales performance.
“Valhalla’s sober detailed research is undermined a little by some slightly tipsy execution,” reads VGC’s 4/5 star Assassin’s Creed Valhalla review. “But this is a hearty, bawdy Viking feast of a game which spins a fine tale and offers plenty to get your teeth into.”
Ubisoft detailed Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s post-launch content roadmap prior to the game’s release.
All players will receive free seasonal content such as in-game events, new settlement buildings, and fresh games modes. Each season will last for three months and the first one begins in December 2020.
The game will also receive two story expansions: Ireland-set Wrath of the Druids will be released in spring 2021, followed by The Siege of Paris next summer.
In a recent interview, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla producer Julien Laferrière told VGC the series still has “many other time periods and moments that we could tap into”.
