A new update for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is set to go live on November 26 for Amazon Luna, PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Stadia, Xbox One, and Xbox Series S | Series X. Read on to find out what the update does, and check below for the full patch notes.
The main feature coming to Assassin’s Creed Valhalla thanks to Update 1.0.4 is the option to choose between Performance and Visual Quality modes on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series S | Series X. As their name suggests, Performance will run the game at 60fps while adapting resolution and graphic settings to maintain the frame rate, and Visual Quality holds the game at 30fps in order to reach “maximum resolution and graphic settings.” Ubisoft didn’t specify whether this means the game will run at 4K on next-gen hardware in Visual Quality mode. However, the studio did clarify that those on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X have been playing the game in Performance mode since its launch, while Xbox Series S users have been on Visual Quality mode.
Update 1.0.4 also addresses a number of bugs related to combat and gameplay. This includes issues with Zealots regenerating health during battle, ironing out inconsistencies with aiming the bow, improving boss and NPC behavior across the board, and reworking the slide.
