    I hope this game is smaller in content compared to the last 2 as a lot of the content felt like padding or lower quality content. odyssey had better missions compared to Origins.

    Also the level gating for main missions was a pain as they ramped it up as felt like they wanted you to buy the xp booster or go away and do a load of side missions (some idiot had a right go at me as he said "he put 100 hours into odyssey and didn't see any grinding so STFU!!!!111111" I could of pointed out he put 100 hours into the game but he seemed "unbalanced" I think my odyssey playtime was 60 hours but not all of that was good content

    I had absolutely no issue with level gating, the key was to only do missions at your level as the lower ones gave bugger all xp.

    I can understand why people thought it was too big but as long as you didnt try and do absolutely everything it wasnt so bad.

    @Darth_Flibble
    Hi mate. It is a grind fest, you are spot on. I just checked, I'm 63 hours in (Odyssey) lvl 43 playing on normal,actually just put down to easy, as I'm fed up of still getting my arse handled to me by lvl 43 main quest ncp 's and legendary animals etc. I really just want to complete at this point.

    I'm not even sure if I'm half way through yet, as mentioned before I still have 22 shards to collect to upgrade my staff. Well actually 21 as I just defeated a guy who was a cultist and stopping a muse returning to a playwright, it is ok though, Kass shagged her .😁👍before sending her off.

    I will post this on Odyssey thread as well, and post in there 're Odyssey from now on.so we stop fecking up the new thread.

    I'm not sure what you have been doing Duff, I was at 67 hours played with a total completion of 85 percent when I stopped playing. That was quite a bit of play after the main story as well.

    @Frogofdoom
    Cheers mate, sightseeing maybe ? That or ogling Kass for hours at a time😁.

    I wonder if Valhalla will be of a similar scale ?

    I think it probably will be as lots of people enjoy the scale. I do however think a lot more content will be optional with a view to keeping everyone happy. Maybe make the side content reward cosmetics and items rather than xp so those who want to hammer it through can and those that want to explore and take everything in can at their pleasure.

    VG247:

    If you’re wincing at the idea of stepping back into never-ending story in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, rest easy – it looks like it won’t be as much of a beast as Odyssey.

    In a response to an article about the size of Valhalla – which features a map that encompasses some of Norway and the four kingdoms of England – Ubisoft’s head of communications for the Middle East, Malek Teffaha, says the developer has addressed criticisms of the last game’s bloat.

    “FYI, it won’t be the longest or biggest game in the series. They addressed criticism on this one,” he said, referring to the size of the game.

    :(

    Controversial I know, but I do love me a Ubisoft bloatware collectathon.

    So, no reason for this not to be 60fps on Series X right?

    Wishful thinking?

    I reckon the grunt is there, whether they choose to utilise it that way is another question however.

    @robthehermit
    I would be happy with Origins size, it seems/semmed a good deal smaller the Odyssey. Having "beaten" Odyssey this week (at bloody last!) I'm currently post game, mother feckin missions/job/kill lists are all still huge 😵

    Don't they just carry on procedural generating themselves?

    Yeah, something like Origins would be ideal for me. Huge world there if you want it, but you can finish it in around 30 hours if you want. I haven't started Odyssey yet as the thought of it is a bit overwhelming :)

    RE: 60fps, that's what I'm hoping for. Played Origins on PC at 60, but would like to get Valhalla on console if possible.

    I'm not sure, there are loads and I mean loads of them regardless.

    What I am sure about is that Kass's libido is legendary. She can't get enough! Almost every other mission (well on 7 occasions so far) she has shagged the mission giver...the little minx! 😜

    Playing Rogue on ps3 at the moment, the climbing is a pain in the arse, how quickly we forget! What is not however are the sleeping and beserk darts, they are excellent, would love those back once more.

    That wasn't gameplay. Ubisoft have some cheek.

    Would be funny if we got the gameplay trailer on the PS5 presentation.

    That "gameplay" was a bit of a joke really. In fact the whole thing was terrible. Not sure what MS were thinking putting that video out.

    Well it made a nice change from Sony being underwhelming.

    If this can’t hit 60fps 4K on new “x” then frankly what’s the fucking point.

    Not a slight on you but it will be on Xbox/ubi if it can’t manage it.

    Well, it was gameplay “engine footage” I assume which was more indicative than we got for the trailer reveal.

    In-game footage is *not* gameplay footage. Cheeky to market it as that.
