Assassin’s Creed Valhalla lets you transfer saves to PS5 — but there’s a catch


Those of you who read my Assassin’s Creed Valhalla review may remember that I reviewed the PS4 version, and was looking forward to getting my hands on the PS5 upgrade. On November 12, the PS5 launched, and so did a variety of free game upgrades. I downloaded the shiny new PS5 version of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and jumped into the game. Right away, I noticed one huge benefit and one huge drawback: Your save files carry over, but your trophies don’t.

On the one hand, it feels somewhat churlish to complain, because Ubisoft has actually achieved something remarkable in terms of save transfers. By using Ubisoft Connect, your Assassin’s Creed Valhalla saves won’t just transfer from PS4 to PS5; they’ll also transfer to Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S and PC. You can pick up right where you left off on any platform, and all you need is an Internet connection. This is a remarkable advance in cross-save technology, and I hope that other developers can follow Ubisoft’s sterling example in the future.
