Ubisoft has announced that Assassin’s Creed Valhalla on PC will be updated with achievements, noting that a previous statement from the company saying that achievements were intentionally omitted is “inaccurate”.
Currently, the Ubisoft Connect PC launcher page for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is missing the section for achievements. When the situation was made the topic of a Ubisoft forums thread, a Ubisoft support staff member responded stating: “Achievements are not not available for this title on PC, and this is an intended change.” They went on to explain that instead of achievements, Ubisoft Connect would offer expanded challenges.
But in an update to that forum post, Ubisoft has stated that the “response above was inaccurate”.
“We are aware that achievements are not available for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla players on PC – this was unintended,” says the response. “We are actively working to enable achievements and will keep you updated when more information is available.”
