Yesterday it's been a week since Assassin's Creed: Valhalla's launch, so Ubisoft decided it's high time for a first summary. The publisher boasted that the game recorded the best debut in publisher's history. Its sales in the first week outstripped the results of all previous installments.
Unfortunately, no specific numbers were given. It was added that Assassin's Creed: Valhalla had the best debut in the history of Ubisoft's PC games. This is interesting because the game did not make it to Steam and is only available digitally through Ubisoft Connect and Epic Games Store. In the case of the publisher's games, however, it is always necessary to log in through the company's client anyway, so the fans of the series are accustomed to using platforms other than Valve's service.
Ubisoft also shared stats on player achievements. While playing ACV, they travelled 4 million kilometers, and 55 million buildings were built in their villages. They also won 1.8 million drinkin games and 3.5 million Orlog games.
Reports of the game's success are not surprising. Last week, Ubisoft boasted that on the day of launch, twice as many people played Valhalla as Assassin's Creed Odyssey.
The popularity of Assassin's Creed: Valhalla is helped by the fact that it is one of the launch titles for next-gen consoles. In the USA, every fourth owner of these consoles has played this game in the first five days after the launch of the Xbox Series X/S. And three days after the US launch of PlayStation 5, the latest installment of the series was launched by 6.5% of people who bought Sony's next-generation platform.
Let us recall that Assassin's Creed: Valhalla was released on November 10, on PC, Xbox One, PS4, Xbox Series X/S and in the streaming service Google Stadia. On PS5 in the USA, the game debuted with the launch of the console on November 12.
