Fix Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Game Not Starting | Stuck On Infinite Loading Screen

If the Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is stuck on the loading screen, you must update the driver to the latest released with day-one support for the game (applies to Nvidia users). If you are experiencing graphics problems with the game, this is the first solution you must try.

Once you have updated the driver, launch the game using the ACValhalla_Plus.exe at the install directory and make the following adjustment to the game’s settings.

  • From the Options Menu > Go to General and Turn Off the Alternative Hold.
  • Go to Screen > set Vsync to Adaptive; also run the game in Fullscreen.
  • Set Anti-Aliasing to Adaptive.

Launch the game and wait for it to launch. If the game still does not budge, Alt+Tab out of the game and open task manager, check the CPU consumption of the game, wait till it reaches below 50% and Alt+Tab into the game.

If the above solution did not work and the Assassin’s Creed Valhalla stuck at loading screen started after you lowered the settings or tweaked anything, try to revert back the settings. If that does not work, reinstall the game and play in default settings.

If you are still facing the problem, you can refer to this post on Ubisoft that has worked for a lot of players. Hope the post has been helpful. If you have additional solutions, you can share them in comments for other players.

He is caught in a loop between writing about games and playing them. It's a vicious cycle. Although he's biased towards PC, you can occasionally find him on the PS5. He does not own an Xbox Consoles but plans on getting one soon.


  1. How do I get to that?

    1. It will be in your install directory.

    1. You should be able to implement the settings from the ACValhalla.ini file.
