Assassin's Creed Valhalla PS5 PlayStation 5

If you've played through Assassin's Creed Odyssey, you'll be familiar with just how huge that game is. It takes place in an enormous map and has endless missions and other activities to engage in, keeping players busy for potentially hundreds of hours. It's a great game, of course, but you could argue it's too big for its own good.

For Assassin's Creed Valhalla, it sounds like Ubisoft Montreal is scaling things back a little. The publisher's head of communications for the Middle East, Malek Teffaha, has responded to feedback about Odyssey's size and scope. According to him, Valhalla will be "neither the longest nor the biggest game in the series", suggesting you won't have to sink quite so many hours into it. This will be welcome news to fans who felt Odyssey was a little bloated.

It should be noted that this quote comes from a translation of the original Arabic tweet. However, it seems pretty clear what Teffaha is saying here.

What do you think of this? Do you want Assassin's Creed Valhalla to dial things back after Odyssey's extended run time? Braid your beard in the comments section below.
