Now that Assassin’s Creed Valhalla has been fully revealed with today’s trailer, loads of information about Ubisoft’s next entry in its popular franchise has been unearthed. This includes details on each edition of the game, as well as pre-order bonuses. This Assassin’s Creed Valhalla pre-order guide will tell you everything you need to know about pre-ordering the game, including price, bonuses, and versions.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Standard Edition
The Standard Edition of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is exactly what you expect it to be. For $59.99, you will get the game when it inevitably launches in the Holiday 2020 release window. If you just want to get in on the action without all the bells and whistles, this will be the version you are looking for.
It should be noted that there is a pre-order bonus. If you decide to purchase any edition of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla today or any day before the game releases, you will receive the bonus mission, The Way of the Beserker. There are no details for the mission, but the art shows the protagonist Eivor with a bet bear that has a scar across one of its eyes. It looks pretty awesome.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Gold Edition
The Gold Edition of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will cost a $109.99 for Xbox One and PS4 and $99.99 for PC. Prices for next-gen console versions have not been announced, but it may be safe to assume it will share its predecessor’s price tag. Additionally, the price difference may be due to the PC version being a download while the console version including a physical Steelbook case.
The edition will come with the base game, as well as the Season Pass. Ubisoft has not gone into what the DLC roadmap will look like for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, but the promotional images state it will give holders access to “epic new content, explore new lands, and discover new gear.” It also says there is a bonus mission available at launch but isn’t clear if that is the previously mentioned The Way of the Beserker mission or an entirely different one.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Ultimate Edition
The Ultimate Edition of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will cost $119.99 across all platforms. Again, prices for next-gen consoles have yet to be listed, but it may be safe to assume it will be the same price.
This version will come with the base game, the Season Pass, and the Ultimate Pack. This DLC is made up of several packs that may help you with completing Eivor’s quest. This includes the Beserker Gear Pack, Berserker Settlement Pack, Beserker Longship Pack, and a set of runes. How these items will affect gameplay is still uncertain but they look pretty cool.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Collector’s Edition
Last, but certainly not least, is the Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Collector’s Edition. This version will set you back $199.99. As of right now, the Collector’s Edition is only available on the Ubisoft Store; it also seems that it is only available for PC and Xbox One. Since next-gen versions have yet to be listed, there may still be a possibility PS5 and Xbox Series X will have Collector’s Editions available at a later date.
