Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Will Be A Smaller Game Than Odyssey

Though we’re still a ways to go before the release of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, one big question that has been plaguing the minds of many prospective players is: just how big will the game be. As it turns out, we may already have an answer to that.

Recently, Ubisoft Middle East’s head of communications, Malek Teffaha, revealed in a translated Tweet (via VG247) that the upcoming title “won’t be the longest or biggest game in the series.” This comment was made in response to VG247‘s recent article about the map size of Valhalla.

In any case, this means that Valhalla may not be as large in sheer map size and density as Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, which was the franchise’s largest game ever so far. Despite this, there will still be a ton of content in Valhalla, including exploring Norway and the four ancient kingdoms of England, as well as growing a settlement Civ-style, or even take part in various minigames such as fishing, hunting, drinking games, or even Viking rap battles called flyting.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is rumoured for an October 2020 launch, though Ubisoft has yet to have the final word on that.
