On Xbox Series X, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will run at 60 FPS in full 4K resolution,"
it's written in the announcement.

They are yet to confirm if PS5 version will also run at 4K/60 FPS.

I note they only say it's 60fps on Series X, not both X and S.

Might be an accidental admission, but would put paid to those saying the only difference between X and S would be resolution.

Would be surprised if it ran that well on the S.

Not necessarily, some devs may chose to push higher resolution on the S at 30fps, with a game that is 60fps on XSX.
I would hope they WOULDNT do that, but some devs do seem to have this idea that gamers prefer resolution over framerate.

Of course it will run at 4K60 on the PS5 as well don't they know how SSDs work?
Depends how much money is involved. I also don’t think that’s how an SSD works. Sooooo the real question is, don’t you know how an ssd works?

Nice, 30fps sounded disappointing for it. Still though I'm impressed at the level of performance if it's really native 4K and holds 60, sets a good general expectation, especially considering the price of the hardware.

What happened to all the people saying it was 30 fps to downplay the Series X's power?

Anyone who said that is doesn't understand settings and resolution. Most any game, especially something as average looking as this should run at 4k 60fps.

Looks so bad I would not be shocked if it would run at 120fps. That's not againts console makers, that's againts Microsoft Ubisoft.

I shouldn't be surprised, but with Ubisoft I am. Pleasantly surprised. I like the AC games and they are good to get at the start of a gen, lots of content.

Honestly, they better bring the same to ps5 if they know what's good for them.

I would love if they unlocked the frame rate for previous assassin's creed games

I dont agree. Odyssey maxed out on PC looks amazing, and better than Horizon ZD by the way, i have not been impressed with that game. Odyssey also produced a stuttery 50-60fps at 100% usage on my 6700k. It took my new 2700X to get a locked 60fps. I actually find it quite impressive they are hitting 60fps at 4k on XSX, and i presume PS5.

Good.
Seeing some of the recent gameplay and how it didn't look noticeably better than odyssey (if anything it actually seems to look worse) it made no sense for it not to be 60fps on next gen consoles.

But...we are talking about Valhalla, have you seen video couple of weeks before posted here, when it looked like a garbage, including animation?

So... which console version will look and play better. The one with the faster SSD or the one with more TF's?

AC is an interesting case. It's very HD heavy because of texture streaming. AC:Odd performed a shitload better once you got an SSD. Now, I firmly believe all the "SSD is maaaaagic" marketing bullshit from Sony is just that...but in AC's case it could actually matter a lot.

They weren't saying it for that reason they were saying it because Ubisoft said it was 30fps and with the way the game looked there was no reason for that, it was a complaint about Ubisoft and the effort their dev team was able to put into the game not the console.
