Assassin’s Creed Valhalla got premiered yesterday, April 30th, with the release of an awesome official trailer. As well as the official trailer premiere, a lot of other information has been released by Ubisoft, including some tantalising screenshots and artwork, take a look on the Assassin’s Creed Valhalla game page.
Ubisoft also released some information what editions of the game will be available come launch. let’s take a look.
There will be at least four editions of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and a couple of editions exclusive to UK retailers (Amazon and Game) the Standard Edition which will probably just include the base game, either in physical or digital format, a Gold Edition which will include the base game and the season pass, an Ultimate Edition which will include the base game, season pass and exclusive customisation gear. I would guess the Ultimate Edition would be digital-only.
There will also be a Collectors Edition which will include the game and some very nice collectable items, like a statue of the female Hero Eivor.
The UK retailer exclusive editions are the Limited Edition from Amazon UK which includes the game and bonus mission The Way of the Berserker. The Game.co.uk exclusive edition is called the Drakkar Edition.
The Gold Edition includes the base game, season pass and a bonus mission which will be available at launch. The Gold edition is currently priced at £84.99 from Amazon UK. Gold edition is also available from other retailers.
The Ultimate Edition of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla includes the base game, the season pass plus the bonus mission at launch and an exclusive customisation pack which features:
- Berserker Gear Pack
- Berserker Settlement Pack
- Berserker Longship Pack
- Set of Runes
The customisation pack will probably be some cosmetic customisation item to customise
your settlement and ship as well some materials and things like that, not sure what Runes are though, possibly used to upgrade/enhance gear?
The Ultimate Edition may only be available on PC as a digital download.
The Collectors Edition looks like the daddy of all the editions. It looks like it will come with the base game, season pass and possibly customisation pack from the Ultimate Edition, although the text on the bottom left of the image does say the Ultimate Edition is only on PC for digital download so console edition may include something else, I would imagine there will be some sort of customisation pack available for consoles.
The Collectors Edition also comes with some really cool statues and other stuff:
- 5cm Male Eivor Viking Statuette
- Premium certificate of authenticity
- Selected game soundtrack
- Exclusive Steelbook
- 30cm female Eivor figurine
- Set of 3 lithographs
The Collector’s Edition is the one I would want tog et but you would expect to pay over £100.00 for this most likely and there is the actual buying of the PS5 and a couple of launch games to think about.
Game.co.uk Exclusive Drakkar Edition
The Drakkar Edition is exclusive to UK retailer Game and includes the base game, Berserke Long Ship pack, a Raven Skin to customize your flying companion and a set of Runes. The Drakkar Edition is priced at £57.99 and is available to pre-order now from Game.
Amazon UK Exclusive Limited Edition
The Limited Edition of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is vailable exclusively from Amazon UK and includes the base game, Berserker Settlement Pack, Hati Wolf Mount and a set of Runes. You will also get access to an additional mission called Way of the Berserker if you pre-order. The Amazin Limited Edition is priced at £51.99 from Amazon.co.uk
Overall a decent selection of editions, there will no doubt be more information on any console specific editions at a later date.
