Assassin’s Creed Valhalla has been formally announced by Ubisoft, and it's confirmed to be coming to Stadia so you will be able to stream it on Linux at release. For those of you hoping to grab it on Steam to play with Steam Play Proton, you're in for some disappointment there as it's going to the Epic Games Store instead. At least with Stadia, there's still a way to play right away.
You can see the first story trailer if you're interested below:
I'm a huge fan of the setting! I somewhat recently blitzed through the Vikings TV series and so this news has me personally quite pumped-up and excited. After playing quite a lot of Assassins Creed Odyssey on Stadia, which works impressively well, hopefully this will too. It's launching "Holiday 2020"
As a reminder, the Stadia game streaming service is now open to anyone in the supported countries (14 total currently). You also get two months free Stadia Pro which comes with multiple games - more on that here.

Quoting: t3gI don’t play these games, but if you play an Ubi game on Steam it launches Uplay after. Is the Uplay integration workable in Proton?
Yes, at least Watch Dogs 2 worked for me.
Am I the only one who thinks that all that's left of the old Assassin's Creed are the name, the watchtowers and the hidden blades? I mean, we haven't heard from the order since Syndicate (it's well worked out, but I find it dissapointing nonetheless)
Quoting: KohlyKohlThe trailer in the article is region locked and doesn't work in the US.Oh sorry, seems I grabbed it from the UK YouTube, have switched it for their generic named channel which I assume doesn't have such issues.
Quoting: GuestGranted, I haven't tried Stadia *snip*Well, right now you don't need to pay a penny when you sign up. You've got nothing to lose but time and possibly gain a new way to play games. Worth trying at least and keeping an eye on.
Quoting: GuestI was really hyped about it. But again Epic only? Well thanks for saving me money i guess....
didnt ubisoft say that far cry new dawn will be the last game on steam for a while?
why are you surprised about AC then?
ghost recon, division 2, anno 1800... not epic only. you can buy it on uplay
