Assassin's Creed Shadows Unveils Huge Feudal Japan: Familiar Size, Epic Scope

Calling all explorers The wait is over! Ubisoft has confirmed that Assassin's Creed Shadows, set in the breathtaking landscape of Feudal Japan, will boast a map rivaling the vastness of Egypt in Assassin's Creed Origins.

This news comes after the success of Assassin's Creed Mirage, praised for its return to a more focused, smaller map. However, Shadows seems to be taking a different approach. While not quite reaching the gargantuan scale of Valhalla or Odyssey, players can expect a sprawling world filled with opportunities for exploration.

Ubisoft's creative director, Jonathan Dumont, explains the decision:

"We wanted to strike a balance. The map will be closer to the size of Origins, ensuring a realistic scale for the environment. Castles and mountains will feel truly imposing, creating a sense of adventure."

While the sheer size of Origins' Egypt might feel daunting, it offered a beautiful backdrop without overwhelming players with activities. Assassin's Creed Shadows seems to follow this approach, providing a vast world for exploration without sacrificing depth and engagement.
