UPDATE (July 13th): Ubisoft has officially revealed that Assassins reed Valhalla will be releasing on November 17th this year. For the keen-eyed among you, you might have realized that this is just 2 days before the official release date of Cyberpunk 2077.

That could be good news for some, as that's two large open-world AAA games to occupy our time over November. But the clash in release dates might also mean we could see a third delay for CP2077, as Valhalla's launch was most likely planned before Cyberpunk got delayed a second time.

Assassins Creed Valhalla will be releasing on November 17th this year for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Stadia, with a release date for the next-gen consoles PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X set for a later date.

Do you think Cyberpunk will be delayed a third time due to Valhalla's release date? Or will Ubisoft push back the latest Assassins Creed title instead? Let us know your thoughts!

Original story (July 12th): Ubisoft has had a tough time recently gearing up for their Ubisoft Forward live event, after many leaks have already surfaced regarding some Assassins creed Valhalla gameplay and Far Cry 6 details leaked ahead of the official reveal. But tonight's Ubisoft Forward event brought us some new gameplay for Assassins Creed: Valhalla with a gameplay overview showcasing some viking raids, developing settlements, new combat system, and stealth mechanics.

There was also a post-show deep dive video which turns out to include some of the gameplay we already saw with the gameplay leaks earlier this week, diving into more of the gameplay and features available in AC Valhalla and expanding on the gameplay overview. You can watch the official Assassins Creed: Valhalla gameplay overview and deep dive video below:

What do you think of the new gameplay deep dive video? Are you still excited for Assassins Creed Valhalla? What else would you have liked to see? Let us know!

RIP Valhalla early sales, I guess. Unless they are counting on CDPR delaying CP again. Though I doubt it, I think they are done with delays. So I guess it might be nice to pick once I am done with CP.

The one thing that really irked me about this game was when they were talking about it they said vikings were not bad and just came to settle and live their lives. Like Seriously? Are you kidding? They first arrived as a mixed bag sure, some just wanting to settle britain but others raided it. Not long after they ALL came to conquer britain. And even before that they killed and butchered soldiers and civilians alike, no mercy. Don't try and push this narrative that they were all friendly wtf.

I love viking/norse mythology and what they were like as a people but that doesn't mean I think they were these righteous settlers that just wanted to live. They killed and stole a lot of crap just because they wanted to most of the time. They were flawed people just like everyone else and to make them out to be these good guys and others as bad does them and everyone else a disservice to what they actually are and did :/

I retract my last comment it was based on less stealth but just seen that you can stealth a raid Rued' fort as well but still needs contemplating as a big choice to outdo CDPR even if delayed again, still luck Ubi

I see Ubi going for the new crowd, I wish them all the best from someone who's been playing AC from its beginnings. I'm still CDPR even if delayed no prob. AC just doesn't cut the mustard anymore, good luck Ubi.

I personally don't care even if it was released on the same day. It's not like if you get one of them the other disappears from the store. Besides, l can't...

these games are not made by gamers and for gamers anymore. thats sad. imagine, what all these big companies could do with their budgets. imagine a ac game of the witcher quality, with its big ac world, kingdom come mechanics and realism, and more innovative things that no other game has. see wat i mean

but this is made for 7-10y kids or those used to "gaming" on mobile.to them it must be jaw dropping sure, and im glad at least someone will like it. i was hoping for ubisoft to take a u turn after ghost recon flop, but i see nothing changed. at least they have a lighting filter to mask all, and increased lvl of sjwism

I am a sucker for Assassins Crred and I hate that about myself. Even though this is far from what I wanted, its very likely I will be getting it. Also social stealth is back? Kind of leans into AC 1 where a lot of stealth was Altair in white robes and a hood hiding among monks with similar attire. We see a lot of hooded figures in this one too.

Viking raids with your crew meaning no solo infiltrations, less stealth, makes me sad :'(

Pause at 9:31 in the gameplay video and behold the mouth piece of the horn is closed. Could've made that better :(

I'm guessing it wouldn't have been a clash if CDPR didn't delay its release. Or do you think this was on purpose?

Oh it is definitely on purpose. That was already set to be a hot week because of Cyberpunk and Ubisoft just wants to cash in on the dopamine rush of gamers that week.

How is it a good financial choice to release your game the same time as Cyberpunk?

It's a bold decision. They're betting on the popularity of their franchise. Majority of people will buy only one of those, and they seem to feel like they have a shot at being a clearer choice. If that's true remains to be seen. If I was them I wouldn't be that optimistic, but Ubisoft is not feeling all that great lately.

I, for one, I am buying Cyberpunk, not AC. Not bothered by the overlap. Anyway Ubisoft has some redeeming to do, I wouldn't bet people would rush to buy this over CDPR's work.

Did you see how fast he dodges? What kind of human moves that fast? Even Geralt who's a mutant doesn't move that quickly.

Why I don't care for the combat since Origins - everything is so sped up, the animations and overall combat often looks ridiculous to me.
