Assassin's Creed Valhalla 1.0.4 Brings 60fps to Xbox Series X|S, PS5

Assassin's Creed Valhalla 1.0.4 adds performance and quality modes and fixes screen tearing, among a host of other fixes.

A new Assassin's Creed Valhalla update makes 60fps possible on all next-gen systems, including Xbox Series S. AC Valhalla 1.0.4 goes live today and adds a number of additional fixes, addressing problems such as screen tearing and glitches.

Previously, the game only hit 30 fps on Xbox Series S, with variable success reaching 60 fps on Series X and PlayStation 5. The update adds a performance mode option to AC Valhalla that prioritizes framerate and a quality mode that locks it at 30fps, but boosts resolution.

Xbox Series S automatically gets set to quality mode, while X and PS5 are set to performance. These can be changed manually, however.

The update addresses a number of issues, from duplicate gear and texture glitches to bigger problems, including screen tearing on Xbox Series X|S and problems with save/load data.

The update is set to go live at 7 a.m. EST on all consoles and PC and ranges from 2.5 to 5 GB depending on the console. Ubisoft listed the full set of patch notes on its website.

But it wasn't until 2017 he started writing about them, after finishing two history degrees and deciding a career in academia just wasn't the best way forward. You'll usually find him playing RPGs, strategy games, or platformers, but he's up for almost anything that seems interesting.
