AC Mirage: Map Size and Comparison

October 12, 2023 by No Comments


Over the years in the Assassin’s Creed franchise, there have been different maps based on each game’s historical setting. Since comparing the size of AC Mirage maps is a question often asked by some veteran players like myself, it’s important to make a rough comparison of it to previous modern titles in the series, such as Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and Odyssey.

A key takeaway

  • The total map size of AC Mirage is approx 45 km2, combined with the city of Baghdad and its smaller rural areas.
  • Aside from a few rare instances, most of the main story events of AC Mirage take place in Baghdad.
  • Compared to previous Assassin’s Creed games, Mirage’s map size is small and linear, Almost similar to classic titles like Assassin’s Creed 2.
  • Meanwhile, the map sizes of AC Odyssey and Valhalla were Drastically huge Compared to Mirage, as they were clearly open world RPG titles.

Map comparison to previous games

While I certainly enjoyed sailing the Caribbean in AC4 Black Flag as a kid and roaming the glorious lands of Greece in Odyssey a few years earlier, learning just how large AC Mirage’s map is compared to previous Assassin’s Creed titles. The question of the moment is necessary.

  • AC Odyssey, being the previous game I played 100+ hoursThe land areas (islands) move around a large distance of 130 km2.
  • Mirage’s total map size (45 km2) is almost a quarter the size of Odyssey, with the difference being that the majority of Odyssey’s map is sea-based with tons of islands.
  • Baghdad (2.3 km2) is almost the same calculated size as AC Unity’s paris (2.3 km2).

Assassin’s Creed Mirage was designed to be a fairly linear game, close in size to classic titles like the Ezio Trilogy and Bloodlines, so it’s no surprise that the map size stands on its own this time around compared to previously released titles. Which of course are meant to be big open world RPGs.

That concludes my AC Mirage map size and comparison guide. if you ask me (Steam ID: LIONT4MER), the map size is perfect as it feels like a breath of fresh air for those players who were burned out from experiencing the RPG trilogy titles prior to Mirage’s release, myself included.
