Assassin's Creed Valhalla Free Weekend

Assassin's Creed Valhalla is totally free to play on PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 right now, until the 28th February. If you decide to download the game and give it a try, then you'll be able to carry over your progress to the full thing, should you buy it.

On that note, it's worth mentioning that Valhalla is currently 60 per cent off through the PlayStation Store — so this is clearly all part of Ubisoft's plan to expand the title's reach before Dawn of Ragnarok drops. That's Valhalla's new expansion, by the way, which releases on the 10th March.

Still, publisher plots aside, we'd recommend giving Valhalla a go if you're a fan of open world games, although the timing isn't great, is it? This free trial is going live just a week after the launch of Horizon Forbidden West, and a little game called Elden Ring is out on Friday. It's nice to have options, we suppose!
