What you need to know
- Assassin's Creed Valhalla is the next major entry in the Assassin's Creed series.
- According to producer Julien Laferrière, the map for Assassin's Creed Valhalla is a bit larger than in Assassin's Creed Odyseey.
- Assassin's Creed Valhalla is set to release in Holiday 2020.
Assassin's Creed Valhalla is the next big RPG from Ubisoft in the long-running Assassin's Creed franchise. Exactly how big is it though? That's a bit confusing. According to Julien Laferrière, producer on Assassin's Creed Valhalla, it's bigger than Assassin's Creed Odyssey.
I would actually say in terms of range it is probably a bit larger than Assassins 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.
This could, at first glance, seemingly contradict some previous news regarding the size of the game. In a now-deleted tweet, Malek Teffaha, Ubisoft Head of Communications for the Middle East, stated that "FYI, it won't be the longest or biggest game in the series. They addressed criticism on this one."
It's worth noting that these aren't necessarily conflicting statements. It's certainly possible that Assassin's Creed Valhalla has a bigger map than Assassin's Creed Odyssey while simultaneously not being as long of a game. We'll have to wait and see to find out.
Assassin's Creed Odyssey and its predecessor Assassin's Creed Origins both sold over 10 million copies according to Ubisoft, which recently released its report for the end of the financial year. Ubisoft also stated that the trailer for Assassin's Creed Valhalla was the most-viewed in the company's history, hitting 100 million views across all major channels in just 10 days.
Conquer new lands for glory and honor
This new entry in the long-running franchise follows Eivor, a man or woman of your choosing who leads a Viking settlement in raids and battles against the Saxons. While you'll explore Norway and the kingdoms of England, it won't quite be the largest Assassin's Creed game in the franchise.
