AC Valhalla May Take Surprisingly Little Storage Space

Microsoft has disclosed the approximate size of Assassin's Creed: Valhalla. It turns out that Ubisoft's latest work will take up a surprisingly small amount od disk space on its consoles, surpassing Assassin's Creed: Odyssey only by 4 GB.

IN A NUTSHELL:
  1. According to Microsoft's store, Assassin's Creed: Valhalla will take up about 50 GB;
  2. The game seems surprisingly small, although we can expect this to be valid for the Xbox One version, and next-gen release will be larger;
  3. Besides, it can be assumed that the employees of the company's store have not considered the day one patch, which can (though not necessarily) weigh a few more gigabytes.

Microsoft's store revealed the approximate size of the console version of Assassin's Creed: Valhalla. As it turns out, Ubisoft's upcoming work will take about 50 GB (via Gamerheadquarters). The title, which is to be filled to the brim with content, seems surprisingly small. Suffice it to say that it will only take 4 GB more on our drives than 2018 Assassin's Creed: Odyssey on the day of its release, while the Xbox version of Red Dead Redemption 2, for example, exceeded it more than twice for its release. Still, this doesn't mean we won't have to prepare a little more space for it.

Let's start with the fact that Microsoft's store didn't specify whether it was about the size of the console version in general or, for example, only the Xbox One edition. Due to the fact that Assassin's Creed: Valhalla is to take advantage of the capabilities of Xbox Series X (among other things, running at 4K and 60 fps), we can expect the size of this next-gen edition to be larger. Another thing is that probably when describing the approximate size of the game, Microsoft store's staff didn't take into account the day one patch, which can weigh a few more gigabytes (although it doesn't have to, because for example Assassin's Creed: Odyssey got a day one patch that took less than 1.5 GB). Nevertheless, there are no plans for Assassin's Creed: Valhalla to be another "devourer of drives" like Call of Duty: Warzone.

"Nice castle, I wonder how many gigabytes it takes," thought Eivor, forgetting for a moment that he/she has no idea what gigabytes are.

Finally, let's recall that the game will launch on PCs, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S on November 10, and will hit PlayStation 5 two days later.
