Assassin's Creed Odyssey Announced, Time to Kill Some Ancient Greeks

Share

Assassin's Creed Odyssey is the latest game in the long-running franchise and it has been confirmed for release October 5, 2018 on Xbox One, PS4, and PC. Choosing from either Alexios or Kassandra, the character you pick will persist throughout the game, and as the announcement trailers shows, you beging the game by being gifted the broken spear of legendary Spartan, Leonidas. Sounds like it's going even more RPG, doesn't it?

Although ultimately, it appears you'll still be charting the course of an adventure from an "Outcast mercenary" to a "Spartan hero", so it remains to be seen whether the choice aspect of the game will be consequential, or merely icing on the cake. Gameplay is great, but when you follow up a five minute parade sequence for Just Dance 2019 with lengthy clips and no concrete release info (Skull and Bones) other than a 2019 window - patience levels crack.

This is the first time Ubisoft has done this with the Assassin's Creed series. Now, we have a trailer and some significant gameplay details for the game.

It'll be the latest From Software game since Dark Souls 3 , and the first new IP from the studio since Bloodborne . Set in feudal Japan, it seems to be following the template set by other FromSoft games.

Ubisoft will showcase more of Assassin's Creed Odyssey at their press conference on Monday, June 11 at 4PM ET.

All we know so far about Assassin's Creed Odyssey is that it will have a setting based in Ancient Greece. This result also damaged the relationship we had with another character.

Since Greece is a collection of islands with lots of water to explore in the middle, it makes sense that sailing your own ship is core to Odyssey. Setting players loose in the open Indian Ocean, this new mode will let them hunt merchant ships, loot trade routes, and sink enemy vessels either as a lone wolf or part of a pirate gang. AC Origins had a few instances of seafaring battles, but Odyssey is treading deeper waters.
