Assassin’s Creed Odyssey map is 62% bigger compared to Assassin’s Creed Origins. The map is huge which means more content in terms of side quests, main missions, and much more. We may also see a better implementation of dungeons.
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey map is 130km² while the Origins map is 80km². This is the biggest map to ever appear in any Assassin’s Creed game. But with bigger maps come even bigger concerns.
Some previous Assassin’s Creed Maps Compared to Odyssey:
- Assassin’s Creed 1 — 0.13km² (the Damascus Area)
- Assassin’s Creed 2 — 0.30km² (Florance Area)
- Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood — 1.14km² (Rome)
- Assassin’s Creed Unity — 2.40km²
- Assassin’s Creed Syndicate — 3.70km²
Assassin’s Creed 4 Map is roughly the same size as Just Cause 2 land and water included, 13 by 13 kilometers in size. While we trust Ubisoft to pack in as much content as possible, big maps often end up being shallow and empty. Since this wasn’t the case with Origins we do not expect it to be an issue with Odyssey as well.
The game is set in Ancient Greece, 400 years prior to the events of Assassin’s Creed Origins. The game is led by two main characters, Kassandra and Alexio. The story will not change based on the character you choose. However, the game is more RPG than ever.
The bad news here is Ubisoft’s treatment of Odyssey as a service based game. The new Assassin’s Creed is releasing on PS4, Xbox One, and PC on October 4, 2018. Preorders for the game are now live across multiple retailers.
How are you liking Odyssey so far? Do you think its RPG elements will breath new life into the franchise?
