Assassin's Creed Mirage map size confirmed, is mercifully the smallest AC world in years

Assassin's Creed Mirage map size confirmed, is mercifully the smallest AC world in years

The Assassin's Creed Mirage map size has been confirmed and it is mercifully the smallest in the series for years.

Assassin’s Creed Mirage promises to bring the series back to its roots and no aspect indicates that as much as its map size.

Back in May 2023, the map for Assassin’s Creed Mirage leaked and it was described as being mercifully smaller than the one featured in Valhalla, and now that appears to be true. Ever since the release of Assassin’s Creed Origins in 2017, the Ubisoft series has leaned heavily into the RPG genre. The RPG direction has split the opinion of fans. Sure, some could say that ever since 2017, the series has been bigger and better than before. While being better is subjective, the series has certainly been bigger, for better or worse.

Take a look at Assassin's Creed Mirage in action below.

The maps in Origins, Odyssey and Valhalla can be a little overwhelming. Not only are these maps huge, but they’re also littered with activities from main missions, side-quests, treasures to discover and more. Let’s say you wanted to earn that Platinum Trophy for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, you’d have to put in an ungodly amount of hours.

This is a far cry from earlier games in the series, at least from the 2007 original as well as the Ezio trilogy. Looking back, the series really began expanding in size with the likes of Assassin’s Creed III and Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. Sure, the original Assassin’s Creed and the Ezio trilogy were still decent-sized, but in terms of their world and side activities, they never really felt too overwhelming, unlike more recent entries in the series.

This is an aspect that fans are looking forward to with Assassin’s Creed Mirage. While it will have the gameplay enhancements and visual fidelity of Valhalla, its map size will take us back to simpler times. Mirage will also see the return of stealth as an emphasis.

As reported by MP1ST, the smaller map size has now been officially confirmed. YouTube channel Easy Allies asked the developers of Assassin’s Creed Mirage how big the map is, and they confirmed that it’s roughly the size of Constantinople in AC Revelations and Paris in AC Unity. So in other words, it’s still a big map, but small compared to more recent entries.

2023 promises to be a great year for Assassin’s Creed games. Not only are we getting Assassin’s Creed Mirage on 12 October 2023 for PC, PlayStation and Xbox, but also Assassin’s Creed Jade set in China later this year.
