Update: Ubisoft’s first Assassin’s Creed Valhalla free trial is live now and runs until the end of the month.
The Assassin’s Creed Valhalla free weekend is available on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Google Stadia, and PC via the Ubisoft Store and the Epic Games Store. You’ll have until Monday, February 28 to play as much of the main campaign as you can squeeze into a long weekend, and any progress made on the free trial will carry over to the full game if you decide to go forward with a purchase.
If you’ve yet to spend time with Viking Eivor, now just might be the perfect time as from February 24-28, players will be able to give Assassin’s Creed Valhalla (opens in new tab) a try for free.
Dropping just ahead of the eagerly-anticipated Dawn of Ragnarok expansion (opens in new tab) which is set to drop on March 10 – and just after title update 1.5. goes live – the free four-day weekend trial hopes to bring more assassins into the Viking fold.

Ubisoft stopped short of giving us the particulars, but as is usually the case with free trials, we expect all the progress you make will transfer over should you decide to keep the game after the trial period ends. We’re not clear on what platforms will be included in the free play event just yet, either, but hopefully, Ubisoft will confirm those details closer to the time.
In related news, in its recent call of investors, Ubisoft confirmed that Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is now the most successful Assassin’s Creed game of all time, clocking up a staggering $1 billion revenue for the publisher/developer as of December 2021 – the first Assassin’s game to do so.
Did you hear about the Assassin’s Creed Rift rumors (opens in new tab), too? During the same Q&A session, CEO Yves Guillemot was asked about a smaller Assassin’s Creed game being next up (opens in new tab) for the franchise. Even though the questioner did not use the term “Rift” in their query, here was Guillemot’s reply:
“As to your question related to Rift, I think what we can say here is that we won’t comment further on the rumor. What we can say is, back to our comment in October, we have a very strong roadmap on the AC franchise for years to come, with very meaningful content coming every year. We reaffirmed our focus on delivering high-quality narrative, and today as we mentioned we are happy to celebrate the stellar performance from Valhalla so far.”
