assassin's creed crashes

One of the most hyped and desired games of 2020 is unfortunately crashing for unknown reasons, for some players.

We are talking, of course, about Valhalla, which is the last title from the Assassin’s Creed franchise.

Although not many problems have been reported for this awesome game, it appears that some users are struggling.

Valhalla crashes after just minutes of playing, for some

This is not a very common problem, as many of the users that replied to this Reddit thread are saying that they aren’t experiencing such behavior.

Apparently, as per reports, after just a few minutes of enjoying Valhalla, Ubisoft Connect immediately fails, causing the game to crash as a result.

The Reddit user which signaled this problem goes on by saying that he experiences a similar pattern when he plays Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, as well.

The only difference is that, after Ubisoft Connect fails, he can still carry on enjoying his favorite game, as opposed to the Valhalla situation.

Even upon tweaking some of the game settings, or even switching server or client location, the issue still persists, without any known workaround, for the moment.

We will continue monitoring the case, to see if others will experience the same problems, and if a solution will make its way towards the light.

What’s new in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla?

The latest addition that Ubisoft added to this awesome fantasy game, on the 13th of May, is a DLC called Wrath of the Druids.

Wrath of the Druids is actually the first major expansion for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and is available for Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PC, and Playstation. 

Wrath of the Druids brings Eivor’s saga to Ireland, where players can actually forge alliances with Gaelic kings and conquer forbidding ring forts.

This DLC adds an astounding, myth-steeped open-world region to Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, encompassing Dublin and three other Irish provinces.
