Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is the upcoming instalment in the never-ending series of loosely told history interwoven with modern day aspects everybody hates. The full list of trophies and achievements have been released, and lots of people are wondering if there is Early Access, and what time they can preload and what the file size is for each platform. Here you’ll learn what time you can preload the game and what the file size is for PS4, Xbox One, and PC, and you’ll also learn about the Early Access bonus mission you get for pre-ordering.
The first 16-minutes of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla on Xbox Series X has been shared online, and the game looks impressive in its opening at least. There are admittedly a number of original fans who are disappointed by the apparent lack of stealth in a game and series named after assassins, but there are also plenty of recurring fans and newcomers who are excited to see the series’ continuation of RPG-like mechanics in its efforts – since Odyssey – to become The Witcher 3.
Whether you’re a recurring fan of the series or a newcomer who likes the cut of the game’s jib, below you’ll discover the preload time and file size for PS4, Xbox One, and PC, as well as the Early Access bonus mission you get for pre-ordering.
Is there Early Access for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla?
There is no Early Access for the full release of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.
However, there is Early Access to a bonus mission for those who pre-order Assassin’s Creed Valhalla on either of its available platforms.
Per the Ubisoft store, prematurely buying the game will result in instant entry to a DLC bonus mission named The Way of the Berserker.
This pre-order incentive is described as Early Access to the bonus mission which suggests it’ll become independently available at a later time.
If you’re planning to pre-order the game so you can get the Early Access bonus mission as well as preload, there are three Editions available: Standard (£59.99), Gold (£84.99), and Ultimate (£91.99 – prices for digital copies on PS4 and PS5).
Early Access to the Way of the Berseker comes with every edition, but the Gold and Ultimate versions both come with the Season Pass, while the latter and most expensive additionally packs some extra goodies.
What time can I preload Assassin’s Creed Valhalla?
You can preload Assassin’s Creed Valhalla on PS4 at the local time of 00:01 on November 8th.
As for Xbox One, the Epic Games store, and PC via Ubisoft connect, the preload time for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla has already passed meaning you can now download the game in preparation for its full release.
For the very few who have Google Stadia, there is no premature download available for the upcoming Ubisoft game.
What is the Assassin’s Creed Valhalla file size?
The file size for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla on PS4 and Xbox One is 45 GB and 44 GB respectively.
As for PC, the file size for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is said to be only 45 GB, meaning the game is relatively small on all platforms especially when compared to juggernauts like Black Ops Cold War and Red Dead Redemption 2.
Be aware that there is a day one patch for the game that has been detailed by Ubisoft.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla launches on November 10th.
