It’s certainly sounding as if it’ll be a beefy one.
Now, things are getting a bit confusing in the details surrounding Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and the size of the map. Earlier this month we reported that the game takes place in The Four Kingdoms (Which is essentially the majority of England) as well as Norway. We’ve also learned that those getting the season pass will gain access to an exclusive Beowulf story which looks to be taking the player to new lands.
However, despite this, it was originally stated that Assassin’s Creed Valhalla would not be the longest or the biggest in the series. This came from Malek, head of communications for Ubisoft’s Middle Eastern studio. However, since then the tweet has been deleted. Now we’re getting new reports as an interview with producer Julien Laferriere who spoke with YouTuber Julien Chièze has popped up. The portion of the interview has been translated and can be found on Reddit.
“I would actually say in terms of range it is probably a bit larger than Assassins Creed Odyssey.” Laferriere states. He continues, “we have not only created the whole country, which is in this case England, but also a good part of Norway too.”
He also mentions about secret worlds that he can’t discuss right now and claims that players will have many hours of gameplay. He also mentions that “it is a game which is clearly ambitious,”.
It seems that the original tweet regarding the size of the game was wrong and we will in fact be exploring an even bigger world than Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. If the players getting hold of the Beowulf story do follow the entire story, there’s a possibility they’ll be traveling up to Sweden on top of the already confirmed areas.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is slated to launch later this year sometime during the Holiday season. It’ll be heading to PS4 and Xbox One as well as PS5 and Xbox Series X. It’s also heading to PC as an Epic Games Store exclusive.
