The most fascinating characters in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla are the bit players. There’s the unmistakable nod to a popular anime. There’s the cadre of musicians paying tribute to the Prodigy, an electronic band whose frontman, Keith Flint, tragically passed last year. There’s Axehead. But the one who’s most likely to…Read more… Continue Reading at https://kotaku.com

Beware This Weird Blindness Bug In Assassin’s Creed Valhalla

Like any massive open-world game, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla has its fair share of bugs. Most of them are slight (graphical hiccups, audio tweaks, things of that nature) or laughably irreverent (super-sized children), stuff you’d expect from a game of this size and scale. One, however, is worth raising the alarm about:…Read more… Continue Reading at […]

Two Weeks After Launch, Xbox Series X’s Quick Resume Feature Isn’t Working Great

For several days after the launch of the new Xbox Series X and S, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla supported the consoles’ best new feature, Quick Resume.

The Best Games For The Xbox Series X And S

A new console generation usually means a new library of games. That’s not exactly the case with Microsoft’s Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, at least not yet. There are few true next-gen exclusives.

Later this year, Rocket League will get an update that allows it to run at 120 FPS on Xbox Series X and S. That same feature isn’t coming to the game on PS5, however. Developer Psyonix says that doing so would require “a full native port” unlike on Microsoft’s next-gen consoles. Read more…

Microsoft didn’t break new ground with its two new consoles, the Xbox Series X and S. The individual boxes look new, sure, but both share a near-identical operating system with their predecessor, the Xbox One. In other words, these two new machines don’t bring much new to the table. Rather, it’s the same dish, except…Read […]

How To Make Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Feel More Like Classic Assassin’s Creed

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is not a subtle game. Ubisoft’s latest well-rendered history lesson, out now for basically every platform but the Switch, puts you in the shoes of a muscular Norse raider.
