Assassin’s Creed Origins map takes almost three hours to cross

Another leisurely stroll through an open-world game

Owen S. Good is a longtime veteran of video games writing, well known for his coverage of sports and racing games.

Asssassin’s Creed Origins’ map is so large it takes almost three hours to traverse it at a walking pace. That’s according to Conor Kearney, the YouTuber known for traversing video game maps large and small.

This time-lapse video completes the journey in about 5 minutes, but Conor says his stroll clocked in at 2 hours and 52 minutes of real time. If you’re curious, that’s not the biggest one he has walked. No Man’s Sky took almost 12 hours to walk halfway around a planet. More conventionally, Just Cause 3’s map came in at 8 hours and 40 minutes. Assassin’s Creed Origins is the eighth-biggest map he’s walked, coming in after Mad Max.

You can see that, starting in the Desheret Desert in the southwest and making it to the Herakleion Nome in the Nile Delta at the northeast comes in at more than 12 kilometers of in-game distance (according to the HUD when Bayek begins his walk).

His most recent tours include Middle-earth: Shadow of War (done in 42 minutes), and Ghost Recon Wildlands (4 hours and 10 minutes). For more, Conor’s walking tour channel now has some 72 maps logged.
