The amount of content being announced for the upcoming Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is once again the topic of discussion. After Ubisoft’s Middle East spokesperson said the game “won’t be the biggest or longest in the series,” a Valhalla developer has now weighed in.

According to a Dev at Ubisoft, the map of their new Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will be bigger than the one in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey.


Assassin’s Creed Valhalla producer Julien Laferriere revealed this new piece of the puzzle in an interview with YouTuber, Julien Chieze, that the world map in Valhalla may actually be bigger than Odyssey’s already massive map.

In the interview, which was actually translated on Reddit, Laferriere said that because the game’s map is “made up of the country of England as well as parts of Norway”, its size edges it ahead of all other Assassin’s Creed games.

Laferriere, in the translated quote, said,

“I would actually 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 clearly ambitious, which will offer many many hours of gameplay for the players.”

While we haven’t been able to play the game as of yet and have no way of confirming this,  it is worth keeping in mind that the original statement may not necessarily contradict Laferriere’s comment. Valhalla’s map could actually be the series’ biggest in terms of landmass, but they might have condensed the content as far missions and unique locations may be concerned. Both would be right in that instance.
