    It looks pretty good and reviewers are praising it but I know they'll sell there souls for next to nothing.So has anyone picked it up yet?

    Is the pc version playable??
    How's the world,?Odyssey is huge but there was nothing to do/very few side quests actually seemed good.Basically your average ubisoft game.

    My neighbor has it and he says it's fun...a 1060 6gb gets 40fps on ultra which is a good sign if you have a 2060 or better... that's at 1080p mind you

    It's an Ubisoft sandbox game with a slightly different coat of paint than the last one. Hardware Unboxed did an excellent optimization guide that appears to sacrifice very little image quality for a 25% or more uplift in performance.

    Yeah it's always a good idea to used mixed settings..so little changes with most settings as they are ports and the PS4/Xbox are static in terms of dynamic settings..their are of course exceptions like msfs 2020

    Basically what saturnotaku said - a typical Ubi sandbox. If you enjoy such type of games, you will enjoy Valhalla.

    I play it. Between Odyssey and Valhalla, I like Valhalla better.

    Ended up paying the 60 for it off u play I figured if I get the amount of time from this one as I did odyssey it'll be worth it..Plays great on my 2080SMQ and 10750h with all maxed out settings.I.. just lock it at 60fps to keep it cpu temps from spiking.
    One thing I like more about this one then odyssey is it seems more mature/darker then odyssey.Idk how to really explain it but odyssey at times felt like playing a live action disney movie lol then you go and initiate brutal violence,babies getting thrown off cliffs,etc haha I was really confused at times playing odyssey.

    I'm not liking this new driver though I feel like clocks aren't as stable with this one...I had the standard/desktop 457.9 version running great on my ge66.

    I don't know if you are aware of this, but you can get a 20% discount code on UPlay.
    I had over 200 coins of whatever I got for achievements, and traded 100 for a 20% discount.

    IMO, a pretty nice feature, which I wish Steam and the rest would implement. As someone who finds game achievement to be useless as a whole, this is a pretty nice thing and actually makes doing achievements worthwhile.

    Well, make sure to remember about them next time you buy something :)
    You can apply discount to whatever you want - new game, discounted game, seasons pass, etc.
    These coins have an expiration date, but unfortunately I don't remember where to check...
