Location revealed

We now know where the next Assassin’s Creed game will take place.

After a lot of speculation, an artsy reveal video and the trailer showed off the new Assassin’s Creed location – or should we say multiple locations.

Much like the Vikings themselves we are going roaming through Northern Europe!

From a Scandinavian village to the English coastline. Things are about to get serious.

Ubisoft’s official description is that we’ll be exploring a Dark Age open world, from the harsh shores of Norway to the beautiful kingdoms of England.

We will be able to launch massive assaults against Saxon troops and fortresses throughout England.

Navigate the Kingdoms

A recent Instagram post from IGN, has confirmed all the kingdoms you can travel to in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.

TIME TRAVEL – We think Valhalla’s London will look slightly different than in Syndicate!

This is mainly in the old kingdoms of England: Wessex, Northumbria, East Anglia, Merica.

You also have the option of returning to Norway at any time.

Old great English cities of London, Winchester and York will feature, as well as World Heritage Site Stonehenge.

Setting Sail

As for traversing the harsh oceans and dense cities, the sailing mechanic from Black Flag is returning, meaning the Map is expected to be of a grand scale (similar to Black Flag’s titanic map).

Although people were hesitant at first with sailing mechanics in Assassin’s Creed games, this feature has allowed for a more exciting and immersive travelling experience.

Not to mention, the sailing mechanic has been perfected over multiple instalments.

We are still unsure how land navigation will work, but it is expected that horseback will be the preferred method of transport, like most Assassin’s Creed games.

Size

There is no official word on the size of the Assassin’s Creed Valhalla map.

That being said, we can always take a look at what’s come before it and make a few informed predictions.

A list online breaks down the sizes of the maps which have come before, and there seems to be a trend. Take a look at some of the titles in comparison:

  • AC1: 0.13km2
  • AC3: 1.41km2
  • AC Origins: 80km2
  • AC Odyssey: 130km2
  • AC Black Flag: 235km2

With the most recent additions, we can see the size jump up massively, with AC Odyssey coming in at a whopping 130km2!

That’s not to mention the even bigger Assassin’s Creed Black Flag, which topped the scales at a staggering 235km2.

Ubisoft producer Julien Laferriere has now confirmed that Valhalla’s map is bigger than Odyssey’s – with the creation of the whole of England and a part of Norway.
