Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is the latest entry in Ubisoft’s long-running historical open world series, and it takes the formula to a long awaited playground: Ancient Grecce. Having gone hands-on with it at E3 2018, we’re ready to detail all the setting, gameplay features and more!
Arkyon has compiled everything you need to know about Assassin’s Creed Odyssey including all the latest news, trailers and more!
What is Assassin’s Creed Odyssey?
It’s the follow-up to Assassin’s Creed Origins, which in itself was a soft reboot of the series after fans had grown tired of annual releases and repetitive mechanics. It was wonderful, and we really hope the same care and attention has been put into Odyssey.
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey release date – When is it coming out?
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey setting – Where does it take place?
Odyssey will take us to the sunny confines of Ancient Greece, so you can expect plenty of gladiatorial combat and historical assassinations amongst the sprawling fields and cities. Feudal Japan aside, it’s a setting we’ve wanted from the series for over a decade now.
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey kicks off in October
After a great many leaks, Ubisoft today finally announced Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, taking the open-world murder simulator to Ancient Greece. Playing as a lad or a lass who’s the grandkid of Leonidas, the Scot who was crowned king of Sparta after kicking a postman down a hole, we’ll sneak, sail, and stab across the land. It largely resembles last year’s Assassin’s Creed Origins, obviously, but the return of naval combat to the series is quite welcome. It also leans on the drama a bit more, with dialogue options and even optional romances. Here, come watch all this.
