This new update will consolidate Valhalla’s game size, resulting in a significantly smaller game size on PC and consoles. In addition, following data restructuring, users will benefit from faster loading screen times and improved performance.

“The upcoming Title Update consolidates the game files, resulting in a smaller overall game size on all platforms”, developer Ubisoft Montreal writes. “Additionally, performance should improve with this data restructuring, with faster loading screen times, improved world data streaming, and overall runtime performance.”

According to Ubisoft, only the base game will need to be re-downloaded with the release of next week’s update. On PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S, players will save roughly between 30GB and 44GB, whereas on PS5, only 13GB of space is being saved. We're pretty sure that Xbox Series S players will be happy with this update as the console only offers 364GB of useable storage out of a 512GB base capacity of the console's SSD.

  • PC ~78 GB
  • PS4 ~67 GB
  • PS5 ~40 GB
  • X1 ~62 GB
  • XS ~71 GB
