Assassin’s Creed Origins and Far Cry 5 won’t have a mini-map

Ubisoft has recently confirmed that Far Cry 5 and Assassin’s Creed: Origins, the two diamond titles of the line-up of French software company in the coming months, will not have a mini-map.


Far Cry 5 and Assassin’s Creed Origins will not rely on a mini-map, making the exploration an issue more related to instinct and movement than in the past. In addition, Far Cry 5 will not have the presence of the Radio Tower.

To navigate in the vast environments of Montana and Egypt, players can rely on binoculars and on the eagle respectively, through which we can see on the screen a few icons that will represent points of interest. A design choice rather courageous for Ubisoft, that obviously wants to move the situation a bit in the field of open world.

Far Cry 5 and Assassin’s Creed: Origins have a lot in common, but one of the most notable and noteworthy similarities is that both of the latest versions of the two most popular Ubisoft games series are decidedly combative.

We remind readers that Assassin’s Creed Origins will be available from October 27, while Far Cry 5 will be released on February 27, 2018 on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
