After years of being accessible on the PC via the publisher’s own Ubisoft Connect portal, sources indicate that Ubisoft may be getting ready to release Assassin’s Creed Valhalla on Steam. Over the past few of years, the game has gotten a lot of post-launch material, and now that the developer seems to have moved on to the next major project, Valhalla’s spotlight has also diminished slightly.
Period Ubisoft typically restricts its popular releases to Ubisoft Connect and occasionally the Epic Games Store on PC for a while, many of these games eventually appear on Steam as well. According to certain recent developments, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla might soon follow in the footsteps of its direct predecessor, Odyssey, and join Valve’s own gaming platform.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla didn’t appear on Steam in 2020, but a ResetEra user by the name of AshenOne discovered a handful of mentions of the title on the SteamDB Discord server. YoobieRE, a unique tool that enables the reverse engineering of the Ubisoft Connect game launcher, was used to source these in turn. The most recent material found by YoobieRE contains specific references to the Steam version of Valhalla under a new product ID listing.
Although it doesn’t explicitly state it, this hints that Ubisoft may be releasing Valhalla on Steam.
Another intriguing fact to note is that references to a Steam version of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla appeared in the infamously accurate Nvidia GeForce Now data leak from more than a year ago, which suggests that Ubisoft has been working on these ideas for a very long time. The likelihood is high, nevertheless, that the game’s putative Steam release has been planned to coincide with the shutting down of its production. Now that development on the game is complete, Ubisoft can make its previous flagship available on Valve’s platform, potentially opening up a whole new market.
Aristocrat’s Creed The most recent instalment of Valhalla successfully wrapped up all of its plot lines and character development arcs. It’s another another huge post-launch content chunk that was added to a game that was already many hours long when it was released. Some players could have waited for all of the game’s post-launch chapters to be released before playing one of the most popular action role-playing games of all time.
