Playstation 5 – How Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Is Different On PS5
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla has some noticeable differences and improvements on PlayStation 5. Here’s everything fans should know about each one.
The PlayStation 5 version of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla comes with some noticeable differences. Many of these are improvements that come from the PS5’s hardware, but they make the experiences in Valhalla overall more enjoyable. Here are all the differences for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla on PS5 that fans should know about.
One of the first differences players will notice on the PS5 is that Assassin’s Creed Valhalla runs at 60 FPS, thanks to an update from Ubisoft that came shortly after the game released. On the PS4, the game runs in 30 FPS (and sometimes drops even lower), but the PS5 appears to have no problem running Valhalla at 60 FPS.

Like the improved frame rate, the resolution is another marked improvement on PS5 over the PS4. On PS4 Pro, the game will run at 1440p, but on the PlayStation 5, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla runs at 4K, assuming users have a compatible 4K television. 4K resolution was another updated feature from Ubisoft, as the launch version of Valhalla initially lacked these features. Between the improved frame rate and resolution, players should instantly spot the differences on PS5. However, some of the changes are geared more toward using the game on the PlayStation 5 and focus on taking advantage of the PS5’s new features, like Activity Cards.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Loading Times & Bug Fixes On PS5
Load times on PS5 are significantly better, and this is especially noticeable when loading after fast travel in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. While Assassin’s Creed Valhalla may still load slower on PS5 than some players want, it’s still a marked improvement over the PS4 version. And thanks to the PS5’s Activity Cards, players can skip the opening logos and title screen and jump straight back into the action by quickly loading up from their last save.
The PS5 version of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla isn’t completely free of bugs and glitches, but it has fewer problems on Sony’s latest console than it does on the PS4. An update earlier this year fixed over 100 bugs in Valhalla, but even before that, the PS5 version ran a bit smoother overall. The PS4 version often had trouble keeping 30 FPS, and could have jumpy gameplay as a result – but this issue thankfully seems to be missing from the PS5 version of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.
Most of the differences on PS5 with Assassin’s Creed Valhalla come from running the game on newer hardware. The DualSense features, for instance, aren’t really used on the same level expected for “next-gen” games. However, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is noticeably improved on the PlayStation 5, and it should definitely make it the preferred console for playing the game.
