The last instalment in the Assassin’s Creed series ‘Odyssey’ featured the biggest map to date that we’ve seen in the franchise, however, according to a producer at the game’s publisher Ubisoft, the map in the much-anticipated ‘Valhalla’ will be even bigger, making the Viking-based game the biggest in the series to date.
Whilst being interviewed by French YouTuber Julien Chièze, Ubisoft producer Julien Laferriere suggested that their newest Assassin’s Creed game would be bigger than the series’ last main instalment ‘Odyssey,’ which was based in Ancient Greece.
What this means is that the new game, which depicts a world in Viking times, will be huge.
"I do not have the exact figures at this stage, but we have not only created the whole country, which is in this case England, but also to a good part of Norway too.
"There are other secret worlds, which I cannot speak about today, which contributed to the size of the game. It's not a small game, it is a game which is clearly ambitious, which will offer many many hours of game."
It is amazing to hear just how big the map will be.
Assassin’s Creed really has come a long way since the days of Altair and Ezio Auditore.
It was to be expected that the game would feature part of Norway, considering it is where the Vikings depart from at the start of the game. However, what has come as a huge surprise is the inclusion of ALL of England.
The perhaps naive opinion we held was that the game would just feature some major English cities like York and London, but the fact the game will give the chance for the player to discover all of ninth century England is pretty impressive.
The good news is that apparently Ubisoft has listened and learned from feedback on ‘Odyssey’ in the fact that the game started to feel slightly bloated after some time and they are working on this to make sure 'Assassin’s Creed Valhalla' provides the perfect gaming experience.
