Assassin’s Creed Valhalla listing appears on Steam

This will be the first of several Ubisoft titles to appear on Valve’s storefront.

Ubisoft’s library has been available through its own proprietary launcher for almost a decade. While the publisher has made many of its games available through the Epic Games Store in recent years, none of its more recent titles have come to Steam. However, this policy appears to be changing. On Monday, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla received an official Steam listing and may announce the arrival of more Ubisoft titles.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla official Steam listing has a release date of December 6th. This is the only recent Ubisoft title to appear on Valve’s storefront, but according to a report by Eurogamer, there will be more.

“We’re constantly evaluating how we can bring our games to diverse audiences, wherever they are, while providing a consistent player ecosystem through Ubisoft Connect,” a Ubisoft spokesperson told Eurogamer. “Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Anno 1800 and Roller Champions are among the Ubisoft titles to be released on Steam.”

Roller Champions is the free 3v3 roller derby title where teams compete for the highest score on different skating tracks. We found it quite funny in our review, but couldn’t help but notice that it was released with little fanfare. Despite this, Ubisoft has assured the audience that Roller Champions will be here to stay. Anno 1800’s Steam listing is notable because it’s been on Valve’s service before. The game was originally withdrawn from Steam in 2019 following an exclusivity deal with the Epic Games Store.

The arrival of new Ubisoft titles doesn’t mean the end of Ubisoft Connect, just as EA’s move to Steam signaled an impending end to the Origin service. Ubisoft Connect will still be around, although now it looks like Ubisoft is pouring more titles into both the Epic Games Store and Steam. We’re keeping an eye out for more Ubisoft titles coming to Steam.

Ozzie has become a huge fan of platform games, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge fan of anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. After all, what are video games if you can’t enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
