Ubisoft announces Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey, set in ancient Greece

Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey is here and as teased last week, Ubisoft is taking players on a journey to ancient Greece in the next installment of the historically accurate stabbing simulator.

Odyssey looks to be drawing on the revamped RPG systems of last year’s Assassin’s Creed: Origins, with the overhauled, Dark Souls-like combat, Destiny-esque loot system, and eagle companion all looking to make a return. Also back is the series’ naval combat, first introduced back with Black Flag in 2013, which will see players exploring the islands of the Mediterranean Sea.

New in Odyssey is interactive dialogue trees, allowing players to make their own choices in how gameplay and the story unfolds, along with huge, 300 soldier battles.

Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey is set to release on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on October 5th.

I really thought last year, I remember Ubisoft saying AC will not go back to an annual game. Maybe I misread them. Maybe it was EA talking about Need for Speed. Also, AC is now a complete RPG

IIRC they would decide on whether to return to an annual basis based on Origins’ success. I guess the sales numbers checked out.

Personally, I loved it and I’ll pick up Odyssey on day one.

A ‘hero landing’ with blast effect in Assassin’s Creed..? Other than that, looks neat!
