You'll be able to buy one copy of Assassin's Creed Valhalla later this year and play it on either Xbox One or the new Xbox Series X. Ubisoft is utilising Microsoft's 'Smart Delivery' feature with the console to allow players to purchase the Xbox One version of the game and get a free next-gen upgrade.
This has been confirmed in a listing on Amazon, which states the following:
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla leverages the Smart Delivery technology - buy the game once and play it on either Xbox One or Xbox Series X when both the console and that version of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla are available.
Assassin's Creed Valhalla is the latest game to leverage the service after CD Projekt Red confirmed earlier this year that Cyberpunk 2077 will also be taking part in it. Needless to say we're pretty excited about the customer-focused feature, and we're hopeful many developers and publishers will continue to get on board.
Will you be using the Smart Delivery service with Assassin's Creed Valhalla? Let us know in the comments.
