AC Valhalla

Ever since its November 2020 release, mostly everyone that is even remotely interested in gaming has heard at least once about the latest Assassin’s Creed title.

Needless to say that the fans of this franchise are beyond counting, so you can imagine that every error that gets flagged is also fixed by Ubisoft in record time.

However, there still are some annoying bugs that affect Valhalla players ahead of the launch of the game’s first DLC.

We’re talking about Dawn of Ragnarok, which is scheduled for official release on the 10th of March 2022. But what use is an expansion if you can’t even run the game?

That’s the question that a lot of Windows 11 users have been asking themselves after downloading the game and trying to play it.

Apparently, there are still some issues with Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and Windows 11, but we’ll show you how you can quickly fix them. Before following any of the manual steps, we recommend updating your drivers with the help of Outbyte Driver Updater which has a big database of drivers and is safe to use.

What can I do to make AC Valhalla run on Windows 11?

Naturally, before you try anything else, make sure that the device you are trying to boot Valhalla on is actually compatible with the title.

Not having nearly enough resources to properly boot and run the game will result in you not being able to launch it at all.

Sure, reports of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla date back to last summer, when Windows 11 was only an Insider preview, so lack of support was understandable back then.

So, let’s take a look at the steps that helped players in a similar predicament actually make the game work on their Windows 11 device.

  1. Check the minimum specs of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla
