Those wishing to embark on a viking adventure can purchase the standard edition of the game for $59.99, available both as a digital or physical copy.
Players looking to get a little more out of a digital copy of “Assassin’s Creed Valhalla” can opt to purchase either the gold edition or ultimate edition. The gold edition comes with the game and the season pass, which unlocks additional content for $99.99. The ultimate edition retails for $119.99, which comes with the season pass and additional digital content. A digital copy of the season pass can be purchased separately at a later date for $39.99.
For “Assassin’s Creed” fans looking to get some additional physical items, they can purchase the collector’s edition for $199.99. The collector’s edition comes with all of the additional content in the ultimate edition of the game and various physical collectables.

Despite holding the “Assassin’s Creed” title, Valhalla is vastly different from previous installments to the series. “Assassin’s Creed Valhalla” is just a viking RPG with occasional references to the Order of the Ancients and the assassins.
“Assassin’s Creed Valhalla” also breaks tradition from the series as it carries much darker and sadder tones than its predecessors. Every choice the player makes will impact the story, making every playthrough unique.
As of Nov. 15, 91% of google users have liked “Assassin’s Creed Valhalla” and the game has been well received from the majority of players so far.
