Assassin’s Creed Shadows Open-World Map is Comparable in Size to Origin’s Egypt, with an Emphasis on Realism in Scale for Immersive Mountain Terrain

Assassin’s Creed Shadows promises a new level of immersion with its 16th-century version of Japan. The game will feature an open world that is approximately the size of Egypt from Assassin’s Creed Origins, with a more realistic scale that makes the environments feel wider and more expansive.

The castles in Shadows are one of the major features of the game, acting as major dungeons and providing players with unique adventures each time they enter them. Game director Charles Benoit describes these castles as being so large that they are like levels designed by themselves, offering players a diverse range of challenges to overcome. This is especially exciting for fans of one of Shadows’ dual protagonists, Samurai Yosuke and Shinobi Naoe, who excel in different playstyles and offer unique gameplay opportunities.

Players will be able to seamlessly switch between the two characters during missions, offering a dynamic gameplay experience that is reminiscent of GTA 5 and Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. This approach pushes the boundaries of player control in Shadows and offers an unparalleled level of flexibility for players to choose their preferred playstyle.

With its expansive environments, challenging dungeons, and dual protagonists with unique playstyles, Assassin’s Creed Shadows is shaping up to be a strong contender for the title of best game in the Assassin’s Creed series. Fans can look forward to exploring this new world and experiencing the diverse range of gameplay opportunities it promises.
