Ubisoft Addresses No Assassin’s Creed Valhalla PC Achievements, Backtracks Initial Removal

It looks like Ubisoft is backtracking a little bit regarding Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla PC achievements. Initially, Ubisoft removed game achievements in favor of Ubisoft Connect “Challenges,” but that move was met with a large amount of negative community feedback. In response to the overwhelming disappointment felt by the community, the company says they are now “working on it” regarding what to do next in terms of achievements. 

In a recent post on the Ubisoft forums, a company representative addressed a thread about the state of PC achievements. According to Ubisoft rep “Ubi-Woofer,” the talk of achievement removal was all a “miscommunication” and was “unintended” despite the verbiage of Ubisoft Connect Challenges. Referencing another post by a different rep, “We are aware that achievements are not available for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla players on PC — this was unintended. We are actively working to enable achievements and will keep you updated when more information is available.” 

Ubi-Woofer added, “I can confirm that achievements will be coming to Assassin’s Creed Valhalla on PC as such. Please rest assured that all of your feedback on this matter has been carefully taken into consideration. We will update you all as soon as we have more information to share.” 

What does this mean for the PC players that have already completed the latest Assassin’s Creed, or are currently in progress? Unfortunately, there is no clarification at this time as to whether or not those achievements will be applied retroactively. The Ubisoft rep reiterated a few times throughout the thread that the team will have more information to share here shortly.
