Next-gen console news is rapidly churning out thanks to a recent leak regarding the Xbox Series S. Microsoft has now confirmed the launch date for both the Xbox Series S and Series X: November 10.

At the same time, Ubisoft has revealed that the highly anticipated next chapter in the long-running Assassin’s Creed series, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, will also launch on November 10, making it a lunch game for the next generation of Xbox consoles.

“We are excited to announce that players will be able to discover Assassin’s Creed Valhalla sooner than expected,” said Julien Laferrière, Producer, Ubisoft Montreal. “We cannot wait to see the world we’ve been creating over the past three years coming to life on all platforms, including on the next generation of consoles with the Xbox Series X and S on November 10th.”

Watch Dogs: Legion, which is releasing October 29, will also be available as a next-gen title on November 10. Both games will enjoy higher resolution textures, improve shadow quality, and faster load times on next-gen consoles.

Both games also support Smart Delivery, meaning players can purchase one game that’s compatible with both current and next-gen consoles of the same company. Cross saves will also be supported, so you can keep your progression when upgrading to the next gen console.

Ubisoft has cryptically confirmed that both titles will also be launch titles for the PlayStation 5 “upon the launch of the console.” Sony has yet to announce prices or release date for their next console, but expect that to change soon.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and Watch Dogs: Legion will release on November 10. They’re rated M for Mature.
