Xbox users will only have to purchase Assassin’s Creed Valhalla once to get access to the current and next-generation versions of the game.
As we are heading into the next generation of consoles we are naturally going to be getting cross-generation titles that will be available on platforms both new and old. Xbox has already taken the initiative by announcing its Xbox “Smart Delivery” program which will allow third-party developers to opt-in making it so that players who buy a title on Xbox One will also have it for free on Xbox Series X and vice versa. Cyberpunk 2077 has already announced that they will be taking part in the program and Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is the latest to do the same.
Currently, Sony has not said anything regarding cross-generation purchasing of titles or how they might implement something similar to Xbox. However, in the past, Sony has done cross-buy functions with the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita so it is definitely plausible that they might do something similar for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.
We will be getting our first look at Assassin’s Creed Valhalla as well as the Xbox Series X in action next week during the newest episode of Inside Xbox along with other third-party titles that have yet to be announced for the presentation.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla has a release window for the Holiday season. It is set to release on Xbox Series X, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and PC exclusively on the Epic Games Store.
