Assassin's Creed Valhalla on next-gen consoles PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X will not have loading times when the Raven goes too far and the players want to switch back to Eivor.

Ubisoft's blockbuster Assassin's Creed Valhalla is almost here and it feels like we are getting new info and gameplay almost daily as we count down to November 10, 2020, release date. Today, we found out that the next-gen version of the game will not have any loading screens when the player returns to Eivor from the Raven.

In earlier Assassin's Creed games, when the player scouted the area with the bird, a loading screen would occur if the bird went too far from the player. It wasn't a big loading screen but it certainly did break immersion to some players. 

Luckily, in Valhalla, this will not happen, at least not on the next-gen version of the game. Once you start scouting with the Raven named Synin, you can fly as far as you want and switch back to Eivor immediately, without a loading screen in between the transition.

PC players with SSDs should also get to enjoy the game and smooth transition from Synin to Eivor without any loading times. 

Assassin's Creed Valhalla is officially hitting the shelves on November 10, 2020, for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X. For more news about the game, check out the links below:
