The last few days have left a lot of news about some of the most anticipated titles between now and the end of the year, such as Assassin’s Creed Mirage. The Ubisoft title promises to once again offer a classic experience within the franchise, after we’ve had three installments in which the studio decided to bet on open-world RPG games.
In all the titles that Ubisoft released under the said genre, the map size was really vast, with a lot of terrain to cover. However, the return to the classic formula will also cause the next game in the series to have smaller proportions, something that the company has already confirmed. And it is that, according to his words, Assassin’s Creed Mirage’s map size will be similar to Unity or Revelations.
The size of the Assassin’s Creed Mirage map will be like that of Paris and Constantinople
The return of parkour mechanics to the video game, which will be one of the fundamental pillars of this installment, as we were able to observe during the shared gameplay at Ubisoft Forward, causes a design change compared to what was seen in Origins, Odyssey or Valhalla. . In this sense, the design of the Baghdad map will not only have a reduced size, but also a structure identical to that of the first games in the franchise.
We have had the information thanks to Michael Huber, from Easy Allies, who in a conversation with the developers of the title assured him that the size of the Assassin’s Creed Mirage map will be about as big as Constantinople from Assassin’s Creed Revelations and Paris from Assassin’s Creed Unity. Although they are not small maps, players who come from RPG installments will notice a considerable cut in extension.
Analyzing both maps, it must be remembered that Constantinople had a total extension of 0.94 kilometers squares, while that of Paris was 2.40 square kilometers. Therefore, according to the information offered by Huber, we can find an intermediate size between both cities, which would establish the standard of the saga before its jump to the open world (Oddyssey has an area of 256 square kilometers). .
Assassin’s Creed Mirage will hit the market on October 12 for Xbox Series X | S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4 and PC, at which time we will be able to see the size of the game map with our own eyes.
