Ubisoft has announced that Assassin’s Creed Valhalla had the biggest game launch in franchise history.
That means that the game sold more units in its first week than any other Assassin’s Creed game released prior. The previous best was Assassin’s Creed III. Ubisoft also announced that it has become the top-selling Ubisoft PC game launch ever.
“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,” said Julien Laferrière, producer on Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. “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.”
Want some more fun stats? Players are already well into their adventure in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, covering more than 4 million kilometers, building their settlements (over 55 million buildings already unlocked since launch) and becoming fully immersed in the Norse and Saxon culture through the Orlog dice games (over 3.5 million games of Orlog have been won so far) or even enjoying the drinking and flyting contests (over 1.8 million players have won at least one drinking game since launch).
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is available now on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series, Xbox One, and PC. You can look forward to our review in the future.
