Ubisoft producer confirms that the Assassin’s Creed Valhalla map will be bigger than Odyssey.
This makes it the biggest in the franchise series. Julien Laferrière, the head producer of Ubisoft Montreal, confirmed that the Assassin’s Creed Valhalla map will be even bigger than Assassin’s Creed Odyssey.
Long running franchise
Valhalla is set in the European Dark Ages and will let players control a Viking settlement. Players will aid them in defending their home from England’s Royal Army.
From battling an army, the story will then shift to a supposed age-old Assassin versus Templar war which spans through the whole Assassin’s Creed franchise. Fans are still getting hyped for the next title of Ubisoft’s longest running open world series despite having no actual gameplay released yet.

The remarkably talented Ubisoft Montreal team will be tasked to develop Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. The team is behind the famous rebirth of the Assassin’s Creed series with Origins in 2017.
Even greater news is that Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will be revamping the disruptive RPG elements which were present in the past two entries.
The game will also bring back the classic Hidden Blade which made Assassin’s Creed famous. The developers also promised a DLC campaign focused on the legendary hero Beowulf.
A bigger map
A few days ago, Reddit user u/vesat released a translation of an interview between Assassin’s Creed Valhalla head producer Julien Laferrière and gaming columnist Julien Chièze.
In the interview, Laferrière talked about how huge the Assassin’s Creed Valhalla map will be. According to the translation, the Valhalla map will be a bit larger than Odyssey. He described that the map will cover England and Norway’s nineteenth century landscape.
Odyssey map issues
It was recently reported that the Valhalla map will be smaller than Odyssey because of complaints that the previous game was overwhelmingly huge.
Players hate that they spent more hours running and riding a horse to explore every corner of the map. Players also complained how they needed to grind so much in order to continue through the campaign.
However, this newest interview from Laferrière contradicts this notion. Still, the idea of traversing through the gorgeously rendered scenic views of Norway and England will certainly attract gamers.
Recent gaming news reported that famous landmarks such as the Stonehenge will be included in Valhalla alongside Viking activities such as boating and hunting.
Fans will disregard any Valhalla map issues as long as the game will masterfully bring back the Viking age. The game is expected to hit the stores next year.
