Hey diddle783!

SSDs load things much faster than normal HDDs. It takes me about 10 seconds from turning my PC to be on my desktop. They are recommended imply because any loading required by the game will be more seamless if it is installed on an SSD. :)

So do I not actually need the ssd?

Hello NuxzaTube, welcome to the forums.

You do not need a SSD to play AC Valhalla and you can play with the game installed to a HDD however SSD is recommended for optimal performance of the game.

Please see the minimum, recommended and performance spec for Valhalla here -
