A recent Assassin’s Creed Valhalla comparison video shows the game loading three seconds faster on PS5 than on Xbox Series X. On PS5 it only takes 23.30 seconds to load, while Series X lags behind at 26.48 seconds.
That’s not a big difference, but it’s interesting to see Series X – which seems to be a more powerful console, at least on paper – lagging behind PS5. Surprisingly, Series S only clocks in a bit behind Series X at 27.17 seconds. The test was performed by loading the exact same file on all three systems using Valhalla’s cross-save functionality, allowing for a near perfect comparison. You can watch the loading screen action below (5:22 mark):
Beyond faster loading times, PS5 seems to edge out Series X when it comes to frame rate and screen tearing as well. Sony’s next-gen console does suffer from screen tears, but they aren’t as obvious or intrusive as those on Series X. Series S seems to fare better than its sibling, although its running at a reduced 30fps and lower resolution.
No matter how you cut it, Valhalla runs pretty well on all next-gen consoles. It may not be perfect, or as smooth as other next-gen titles, but it’s a great first step onto new platforms for Ubisoft’s popular franchise.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is now available on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
