If you want to go from one corner to the other of Assassin’s Creed Origins, you might want to pack a sandwich. Someone who decided to put the Assassin’s Creed Origins map size to the test apparently took three hours to cross Ptolemaic Egypt at the average walking pace.
While you might be able to cut down on the time if you run the whole way or ride a horse or camel, it’ll still take you a good while to go across the map, in yet another enormous open-world that has been featured in an Assassin’s Creed game.
According to the game’s user interface, walking from the far south of the map to the far north is around 12 kilometers, which takes around 150 minutes, or 2 and a half hours, to walk. While the gamer that showed off the Assassin’s Creed Origins map size says that it took him around 2 hours and 52 minutes in order to cross the map, that doesn’t say whether or not he went in a straight line or actually followed the road.
On the upside, such an enormous map gives you plenty of places to explore, especially considering you’re in Ancient Egypt. You can walk around and experience the ancient monuments as they would have looked in those times, such as the whitewashed and gold-capped Pyramids of Giza, the fully-colored and whole Sphinx, and more.
There’s also plenty of other distractions to do, such as quests, missions, bandit gangs to slaughter, wildlife to hunt, and more. And, sometime soon, you’ll even be able to take a tour of the entire map without having to worry about any dangers through an upcoming DLC which will also help you learn about the setting.
If you want to experience the Assassin’s Creed Origins map size for yourself, you can buy the game now on Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PC.
