Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Celebrates First Anniversary With Surprising Player Stats

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla first released a year ago today, November 10, 2020. The game was more than a little buggy at launch – on PlayStation 4 in particular – but the title has come a long way. path over the past 12 months. Indeed, in typical Ubisoft fashion, Valhalla has received many important updates, many of which add new content to the already massive open world gameplay. All in all, it was an impressive show of support, complemented by two solid expansions.

Either way, to help celebrate the title’s first anniversary, Ubisoft has released some insane player stats. Here are the highlights:

  • Players killed 28,655,028,898 enemies
  • 2,909,779,176 enemies were assassinated
  • Varin’s Ax (one of the first weapons in the game) is the most used weapon, followed by the Hunnish Bow, Housecarl’s Ax, and … Blacksmith’s Hammer.
  • Dive of the Valkyries is the most used combat ability
  • Players have died 524,892,993 times
  • 77% of deaths are due to combat, 8% to falls and 6% to fire
  • 50 million photos were taken
  • Players raided 290 million times
  • Orlog (the game of dice) has been played 75.4 million times, and the player win rate is 51%
  • 87 million flight matches have been played, with players winning 71% of the time
  • 80 million drinking games have been played, with players winning 52% of the time

phew, some big numbers there. The sheer magnitude of those stats isn’t a big surprise, however – not since Ubisoft announced that Valhalla was the second-highest grossing version in the company’s history. We can say that it is a success for the publisher.

And support for Valhalla isn’t coming to an end either. Unlike previous games in the series, Valhalla will be getting a second year of updates and DLC, which will run throughout 2022. No doubt we’ll get more information in the coming months.

In the meantime, the game’s new festival kicks off on November 11, and the Explorable Tombs of the Fallen have just been added via the latest patch. Are you still playing Assassin’s Creed Valhalla? Throw an ax or two in the comments section below.
