Ubisoft Aims for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla to Run 30 FPS at 4K on Xbox Series X

Ubisoft pointed out that this is just an estimate, so let’s home the studio is being conservative

In a statement to Eurogamer Portugal, Ubisoft has confirmed that Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will run at a minimum of 30 FPS at 4K on the Xbox Series X.

“Currently, we can guarantee that Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will run at least 30 FPS. Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will benefit from faster loading times, allowing players to immerse themselves in history and the world without friction. Finally, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will benefit from improved graphics made possible by the Xbox Series X, and we can’t wait to see the beautiful world we’re creating in stunning 4K resolution.”

Ubisoft went on to point out that this is just the current estimate. That means things could change between now and when the game is released. And, to be honest, chances are that Ubisoft is being very careful not to set expectations too high after that nonsense that was 3 seconds of gameplay during the May Inside Xbox live stream. That said, 30 FPS falls far short of the 4K60 targets that Xbox has all but promised. Of course, Microsoft has recently come out and said that 60 FPS isn’t a standard for Xbox Series X games, so it’s up to Ubisoft to do what it wants to do.

At this point rock-solid 30 FPS at 4K would be promising when the Series X launches as the Xbox One X does run at that standard but FPS fluctuates as you play. PCs also struggle to run at 4K60 without issue for most games, so it might actually be a while before we see actually see 4K60 the way it’s meant to be seen. For now, I wouldn’t hold out hope that Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will hit that target, but it seems we’ll find out soon enough.
