Good news for Linux desktop and Steam Deck players! Assassin's Creed Valhalla is coming to Steam on December 6th.
Yet another company who tried vanishing to their own launcher, or to the Epic Store, is returning to Steam. Not really surprising though, considering Steam is still the biggest PC store around. I'll be giving it a run on Steam Deck when it releases, so I'll let you know what to expect from it.
This is not the only title coming to Steam, as Ubisoft confirmed to Eurogamer that Anno 1800 and Roller Champions will also be getting a Steam release.
Hopefully Ubisoft Connect won't be too problematic for Proton, so that players on Linux desktop and Steam can get to play them too. Considering how big a title like Assassin's Creed Valhalla is, I've no doubt if there's major problems that Valve would promptly look into getting it working.
