‘Assassin’s Creed Odyssey’ Offers Player Choice and Naval Combat
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey hits stores this fall
Although it leaked a little early, Ubisoft announced the next installment of the Assassin’s Creed franchise, “Assassin’s Creed Odyssey”. Fans of the franchise won’t have to wait too long to jump into the new story, the game is set to release worldwide on October 5, 2018 on Xbox One, PS4, and PC. The publisher also announced during E3 that “Assassin’s Creed Odyssey” has been enhanced with additional features for Xbox One X and PS4 Pro systems.
If you’re wondering about the setting, “Assassin’s Creed Odyssey” takes place in Ancient Greece in fifth century BC during the Peloponnesian War between Sparta and Athens. Playing as Alexios or Kassandra, giving you a choice of a male or female character, players will take on the role of a mercenary of Spartan blood sentenced to death by their family. Players will embark on an epic journey from a young outcast to a legendary hero and uncover the truth about their mysterious First Civilization lineage.
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is an action role-playing game that places choice at the center of the experience. An all-new interactive dialogue system empowers players to forge their own path and impact the game’s world, characters and story to shape the future of Greece. Players will customize weapons and gear, master and equip new special abilities, and charge into massive battles between Sparta and Athens, pitting hundreds of soldiers against each other.
The return of open-world naval combat allows players to seamlessly explore the open seas, customize their ship and recruit their own crew with unique perks. With the entire country of Greece to discover, from pristine beaches to vibrant cities, from the heights of snowy mountain peaks to the depths of the Aegean Sea, players will encounter Ancient Greece’s famous figures and myths as they live their own odyssey.
Additionally, the Gold, Deluxe and Ultimate Editions of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey were announced during E3 this year.
