Remember a couple of weeks ago when an Ubisoft employee claimed that Assassin's Creed Valhalla would not be the “longest or biggest” game in the series? Well we might need to scrap that, as another interview with another Ubisoft producer seemingly contradicts earlier statements.
Speaking in an interview with Julien Chièze, Ubisoft producer, Julien Laferrière, said that “in terms of range, Valhalla is probably a bit larger than Assassin's Creed Odyssey”. He goes on to say that there aren't exact figures yet but the game recreates England and a chunk of Norway.
In Assassin's Creed Odyssey, players had a 90 square mile map to play in, covering a number of large islands and cities. It would seem that Valhalla will include more vast, expansive areas to explore, in addition to “other secret worlds” that aren't being discussed just yet.
“It's not a small game, it is a game which is clearly ambitious, which will offer many, many hours of gameplay”.
At the moment, Assassin's Creed Valhalla is set to release in Holiday 2020 for current gen and next gen consoles, Stadia and PC.
KitGuru Says: I don't think anyone was under the impression that Valhalla would be a small game, but there was a hope that things would be a bit more streamlined. We still don't really know enough about the in-game experience to make any judgements, but these recent contradicting statements are bound to cause some confusion.
