Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Will Need Full Reinstall With Next Update

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Players Will Have to Completely Reinstall Game When New Patch Goes Live

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s newest update is going live next week. Ahead of Update 1.4.1’s rollout, however, Ubisoft has given fans a fair warning. It turns out that they will need to reinstall the game completely once the patch goes live.

With that said, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla players will have to prepare around 77GB on their PCs. According to multiple reports, the total will be slightly less than the current game’s pre-update size—not including the DLC. This is apparently because of some optimization.

Precisely how much smaller it is going to be will depend on what console is being used. Xbox Series X players will get to save the most amount of space when they re-download Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. The new version will be 44GB smaller. PlayStation 5 players, on the other hand, will save the least, only clearing 13GB. PC users can save 34GB, while both Xbox One and PlayStation 4 players can save 30GB.

The new optimizations coming to Assassin’s Creed Valhalla are significant, too. Apart from preparing the game for its future expansions, the upcoming patch will also “deliver faster loading screens, improved world data streaming, and overall runtime performance,” the Ubisoft Community Manager confirmed.

According to the team behind the game, the download is part of what they referred to as “data restructuring.” The new updated version of the game will basically consolidate game files. This, in turn, will result in a much smaller overall game size. This indicates that what could have added around 34GB to the total file size has actually reduced by around a gigabyte.

In addition to this new patch, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is also getting more content. According to a known leaker, a popular character from an earlier title from the franchise is going to make an appearance in an upcoming quest line.
