Just a few more months and fans will finally get their hands on the PlayStation 5. In-depth details about the system’s specs and news about upcoming games are running wild on the internet. One of the first playable games on Sony’s next-gen console will be Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and based on recent reports, fans now know how the game will exactly take advantage of the new console’s power.
The PlayStation 5 is set to bring the house down by offering a quick SSD and ray-tracing capabilities which are way better than what the PlayStation 4 Pro has now. The problem is how these video games will utilize these next-gen features. The Assassin’s Creed franchise has had a long history over the previous consoles but how specifically the newest installment of the franchise will work on the PlayStation 5 has now been unveiled.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will reportedly run in 4K resolution at 60 frames per second on the PlayStation 5 which mirrors how the game will perform on Microsoft’s Xbox Series X. This surpasses some assumptions that the game would only run at 30 frames per second on Sony’s next-gen console.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will be launched on both PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5. However, for players who are curious about how the game will differ on every console, Valhalla will utilize the PlayStation 5’s SSD for almost instant load times and will also utilize the Tempest Engine for a clearer 3D sound.
As of writing, there aren’t too many specs for next-gen games that have been announced but it is most likely that 60 fps and 4K resolution will become a usual feature on next-gen consoles. While 4K resolution has now become standard for today’s televisions, only the newer current-gen consoles including the Xbox One X and PlayStation 4 Pro have been able to utilize 4K gaming in one model to another.
60fps also provides smoother gameplay and if paired with the SSD’s fast loading times, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla should be able to provide an unforgettable experience on the PlayStation 5. How exactly Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will utilize the next-gen console’s other advance features such as the DualSense controller’s haptic feedback, will have to wait until the game is released on November.
While the Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will be available on November 10 for the current-gen consoles, PlayStation 5 users will be able to avail the game two days later during the console’s November 12 release. For fans who want to take advantage of the situation, they should remember that whatever the form of the current-gen version they purchase will also be the same for its next-gen upgrade.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will launch alongside the Xbox Series X/S which will allow players to indulge in the Viking world and play as Eivor who will fight against anyone to establish a settlement in England. The game will also be available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Stadia, and the PC.
