Assassin's Creed Valhalla PS5

It still feels like the UK and the rest of Europe have been shafted by the extra week we'll have to wait for the PlayStation 5 launch. Made to wait until 19th November 2020, it'll be difficult for us to watch as our US friends get their hands on the console seven days earlier than ourselves. Nevertheless, at least we'll be able to purchase a single PS5 game during that time. Amazon UK has updated its listing for Assassin's Creed Valhalla and attached a new 12th November 2020 release date to the game.

Yes, that means you'll be able to buy and receive the latest Ubisoft open-world title and then have nothing else to do with it for a full week. This date is clearly meant to line up with the US launch of the PS5, but it doesn't look like the publisher is bothering to delay the UK version. To be fair, this approach is somewhat commonplace as certain PlayStation 4 games also went on sale just before it hit store shelves. It's just funny to think of owning a PS5 game without a console to play it on for a week.
