Shortly after Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s announcement, Ubisoft’s Malek Teffaha tweeted that it wouldn’t be “the longest or biggest game in the series” due to criticism levied at its predecessors, Origins and Odyssey, which were arguably massive to a fault. We may actually be in for an even bigger epic, however, as a team lead has shared the complete opposite.

According to an interview (via reddit) with Valhalla’s producer, Julien Laferrière, the latest Assassin’s Creed will be even larger than the last two titles. While there’s the possibility of a mis-translation here (the interview was originally in French), Laferrière revealed that the game features all of England, as well as a “good part” of Norway.

Julien Chièze: The first thing that interests the players is the size of the world compared to what you have done previously in Odyssey, Origins, which are the last two. Is it similar, is it bigger, is it comparable?

Julien Laferrière: 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 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.

For reference, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey’s map spans an already-impressive 90 square miles. Thank goodness for fast travel.
