Assassin's Creed Valhalla: Wrath of the Druids

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla‘s first major expansion, Wrath of the Druids, is finally here, kicking off another chapter in Eivor’s story. The new content sends players to Ireland, which brings an entirely new chunk of land to the game’s already enormous world.

So how big is it exactly?

Well, the game’s version of Ireland contains four districts (Dublin, Meath, Connacht, and Ulster). Districts vary in size from the relatively small Dublin to the gigantic Ulster. So judging the size based on how many districts there are isn’t the most useful measurement of the size of the map.

That meant I was going to have to take some actual measurements.

I parked my boat way out on the northern edge of the map, north of Dunsverick but aligned just a touch north of the northern tip of Ulster. I dropped a marker on the southern boarder, straight south from my position, and the game’s navigational UI was telling me this was just under 5,000 meters (it was about 4,950).

I ran a similar experiment to measure the width of the map. I parked my boat out north of the northwestern corner of Connacht (near Downpatrick Head), then I dropped a marker on the eastern coast to the south of Movilla Abbey (which sticks out about as far east as the island that Lambay Abbey is on). The distance was just over 4,200 meters (about 4,210).

So we can estimate that the map is about 4,200 meters by about 5,000 meters. That’s not bad.

I did a similar experiment in England to see how they compare. The widest part of the England map is from the eastern tip of Cent to the western edge of the map, so that’s where I measured width. I got 9,455 meters, give or take. For height, I fast-traveled out to the Isle of Wiht and stood on the southernmost part of the south shore. I dropped my pin on the northern border of the map and measured about 14,320 meters.

So this means that the Ireland map is about half as wide and about 1/3 the height of the England map. And, to be clear, the England map in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla doesn’t encompass all of England, and the Ireland portion doesn’t encompass all of Ireland. These are just sizeable chunks of each.

But size isn’t as important as what the space contains. A giant map with nothing but empty space wouldn’t really be anything to write home about, would it? So here’s how much wealth, mysteries, and artifacts exist in each of Ireland’s districts:


  • Suggested Power – 55
  • Wealth – 8
  • Mysteries – 2
  • Artifacts – 4


  • Suggested Power – 55
  • Wealth – 15
  • Mysteries – 4
  • Artifacts – 8


  • Suggested Power – 55
  • Wealth – 18
  • Mysteries – 6
  • Artifacts – 9


  • Suggested Power – 55
  • Wealth – 28
  • Mysteries – 5
  • Artifacts – 8

No matter how you measure it, I think it’s safe to say this is a pretty good chunk of content. It costs $25, though, so Ubisoft really needed to deliver something massive to justify the buy-in. I think they probably did, but we’ll have to see what my thoughts are once I complete the new storyline (and all those Cairn Challenges!)
