Ubisoft's upcoming action-adventure video game, "Assassin's Creed Origins," is expected to literally push the boundaries when it comes to the size of its #Open World map. The size of the game is, of course, a hot topic amongst fans seeing as that it has been mentioned that it would contain one of the largest maps within the franchise. Now, the game's director has given fans a hint of just how massive the map will be.

Larger and ever

In a recent interview, the game's director Ashraf Ismail has revealed that the open world map for the upcoming game will be much bigger than the one found of "Assassin's Creed 4: #Black Flag." The map on the franchise's previous installment is estimated to be somewhere around 13 kilometers by 13 kilometers in size, with players likely spending more than half an hour in sailing from one end of the map to the other end.

Ismail did not specifically mention the actual size of the map itself but only mentioned that the Egypt map in "Assassin's Creed Origins" is at least twice the size of Havana.

Take a look at a sneak peak of the game's map as shown during a live demo:

Size doesn't matter

Despite its massive size, Ismail and the developers apparently don't want players to dwell too much on the size of the open world. The director mentioned that even though the upcoming game's map will be massive, it is actually the map's content that will matter in the end. A vast majority of the map within "Black Flag" was mostly open waters and deserted islands, which means that the action was only concentrated on some portions of the open world. However, this might not really be the case with the upcoming game as most of the locations will be filled with quests, points of interests, and other content.

Each city within the map will be unique to itself and players should enjoy countless hours of walking around and exploring the massive world.

Map details

Aside from teasing fans about the size and content of the map, Ismail also confirmed some details about the upcoming game. The director confirmed that the map itself will be "open right away." Although fans will have to go through an intro sequence first before being allowed to freely roam through Egypt. The director also confirmed that there will be a lot of customization options for the player's characters.

"Assassin's Creed Origins" is scheduled to be released on Oct. 27 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC. The game will act as a prequel to the entire series and will be set in a fictional history of real-world events. Gamers will be playing the role of Bayek, a Medjay in Ptolemaic Egypt. #Game Director
