Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is the next major entry in the series and PC gamers are preparing in the only way they know how: analysing PC specs and system requirements. For those that want to run Valhalla on the Ultra settings, there are some demanding hardware requirements. Even the minimum specs are quite up there. Let’s take a look at what Ubisoft has to say about what you need to run Assassin’s Creed Valhalla on PC.

Assassin's Creed Valhalla PC specs

Ubisoft has been kind enough to give PC players a look at the system requirements for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. As mentioned above, the requirements to hit the Ultra settings (4K at 30fps) is rather demanding, requiring some of the latest graphics cards. Even running Valhalla at 2K/60fps requires an RTX 2080. For those with a four year old card like the GTX 1080 Ti, it looks like 2K at 30fps or 1080/60fps will be go-to options.
