Assassin's Creed Shadows full map officially unveiled, and she is massive

Assassin's Creed Shadows full map officially unveiled, and she is massive

Whoo boy, the Assassin's Creed Shadows map is here and it's huge

We’ve been speculating along with the rest of the internet about the size of the map for Assassin’s Creed Shadows wondering just how big it would be, and now we know.

Unveiled at the Ubisoft Forward event, as part of Summer Games Fest, it appears the map will be a big one, but thankfully not as large as Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.

Assassin's Creed Shadows is shaping up nicely from what we've seen over recent days

The map is being discussed on Reddit as fans have started picking it apart and highlighting what we could potentially see when the game is released.

It appears there will be nine regions across the map - Harima, Iga, Kii, Omi, Settsu, Tamha, Yamashiro, Yamato, and Wakasa - and while these will be populated it’s unsure how densely and how much will be open fields or mountain ranges.

The top comment highlights the difference between Shadows and Valhalla, with u/link0O saying, “It should have better scaling since it's only a region, not the entire country, it will feel bigger”

One of the biggest issues with the more recent Assassin’s Creed maps, despite the overall quality of the games, was the empty feeling of some areas and the idea that the countries were shrunken down.

Another user comments on just that saying, “At least they're not doing what Valhalla did by having that weird condensed version of England. This is more akin to older games that didn't pretend to be entire countries but instead, the Animus just says "nah" when you try and go where your ancestor never went.”

Generally, the feedback so far has been positive with many commenting that the map seems to be on par with Assassin’s Creed Origins. u/Taboada12 says this about the comparison, “So this is similar to Origins' sized map? Sweet. I'll take that. Origins was one I want to replay eventually cause I remember how bugged I was at the map size but then I played Odyssey/Valhalla.”

We won’t have long until we can get out there and explore as Assassin’s Creed Shadows launches 15 November 2024.
