Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is the biggest Assassin’s Creed game launch in history, selling through more units in its first week than any other Assassin’s Creed game during the same period, publisher Ubisoft announced.

The Viking-themed Assassin’s Creed game has also become the top-selling Ubisoft PC launch ever, driven by all-time record Ubisoft Store sales performance.

“We are truly delighted by the enthusiastic response from players and want to thank the fans for their incredible support,” said Assassin’s Creed Valhalla producer Julien Laferriere in a press release. “Delivering this game amid a global pandemic was a true tour de force by our teams and it’s fantastic to see players enjoying the game so much. Launch is only the beginning and we have robust content plans for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla that will keep players immersed in their epic Viking saga for a long time to come.”

Ubisoft also shared the following in-game statistics:

Players are already well into their adventure in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, covering more than 4 million kilometers, building their settlements (over 55 million buildings already unlocked since launch) and becoming fully immersed in the Norse and Saxon culture through the Orlog dice games (over 3.5 million games of Orlog have been won so far) or even enjoying the drinking and flyting contests (over 1.8 million players have won at least one drinking game since launch).

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is available now for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC via Uplay and the Epic Games Store, and Stadia.
