Also the game director Ashraf Ismail says, that Assassin’s Creed Origins will have the series biggest map to date.
“Ancient Egypt meant many things for us; it meant cities, but also wilderness, and we wanted to show the diversity of this wilderness,” he says on the Ubisoft blog. “And people, as they play the game and get into hours and hours of it, they’re constantly seeing new stuff from the world and the environment.”
Making a world this big, Ismail adds, is an effort to keep players lost, constantly exploring the map for “hours and hours.”
“When you compare the game’s map to the real-world map, when you look at it very quickly, you feel like this is Egypt,” resident historian Maxime Durand says.
Assassin’s Creed Origins will be released for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC on October 27, and for Xbox One X on November 7.
