Assassin's Creed Odyssey revealed

The latest entry in the long running franchise will take players to Greece

Posted on

Ubisoft has announced Assassin's Creed Odyssey, bringing players to Ancient Greece in the 5th century BCE, centuries before the founding of the Assassin's Brotherhood in Egypt.

Odyssey casts players as one of two Spartan outcasts-turned-mercenaries – Alexios or Kassandra – free to forge their own destiny during the Peloponnesian War. The game offers the ability to make story-altering choices by navigating interactive dialogue, making or rejecting alliances, and pursuing romance. Assisted by a mysterious First Civilization artifact, the Spear of Leonidas, you'll also be able to unlock new, seemingly supernatural abilities as you journey through Greece, hunting secretive enemies, meeting famous historical figures, encountering myths, and fighting in battles between Athens and Sparta.

Ancient Greece promises a large open world – nearly half of which is water – and features a diverse landscape of mountains, cities, forests, and beaches. Odyssey also brings back open-world naval gameplay, putting you at the helm of a trireme warship and setting you loose to hunt pirates and other threats with a steadfast crew of archers. You'll be able to not only customize your ship, but recruit unique crewmembers as well, persuading allies and enemies alike to add their perks and abilities to your roster.

The game will also continue the RPG evolution for the series, with new weapons to wield, new helmets, breastplates, belts, greaves, and bracers, with each changing your mercenary's appearance as well as their stats.

Assassin's Creed Odyssey will be available in standard, Deluxe, Gold, and Ultimate Editions. The Deluxe Edition adds gear packs and a naval pack, as well as XP and currency boosts, while the Gold Edition includes the Season Pass and grants early access to the game starting October 2. The Ultimate Edition, meanwhile, contains the Season Pass and the Deluxe Edition content, as well as early access beginning October 2. Additionally, players who preorder the game will get an additional mission, "The Blind King."

Assassin's Creed Odyssey will be released on Xbox One, PS4, and PC on October 5.
