Ubisoft is contradicting itself – after their Middle East communication boss underestimated the Viking Assassin’s Creed’s world size, now we hear an opposing comment.
Previously, we talked about how Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla isn’t going to be the biggest entry in the series based on community feedback, as many people complained that Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey’s world was overwhelmingly big. Now, Julien Laferrière commented about the Norse adventures’ size – he was chatting with a French gaming journalist called Julien Chièze about the next instalment in the AC series.
Thankfully, we got some translation on Reddit about the size of the game. „The first thing that interests the players is the size of the world compared to what you have done previously in Odyssey, Origins, which are the last two. Is it similar, is it bigger, is it comparable?”, Chièze asks.
„I would say in terms of range it is probably a bit larger than Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey. 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 can not speak about today, which contributed to the size of the game. It’s not a small game, it is a game which is ambitious, which will offer many many hours of gameplay for the players,” Laferrière responded. Secret worlds, eh?
Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla’s exact release date is yet to be announced – rumours point at either October 15 or 16. The game’s in development for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, PC (Epic Games Store, Ubisoft Store), Google Stadia, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. If mid-October IS when the game launches, then the next-gen versions might follow a bit later, unless the PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Series X both arrive around those two days. (The Xbox Series X has been rumoured to aim for an October 23 launch, while Sony has denied an October release for the PlayStation 5.)
