Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is taking us way back to Ancient Greece this time around. The game takes place in fifth century BC during the Peloponnesian War between Sparta and Athens. Players will take control of either Alexios or Kassandra, a Spartan mercenary sentenced to death by their family. On their journey, they will learn more about their First Civilization lineage, and become a hero in the process.
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is an ambitious 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.
Ubisoft also announced the Gold, Deluxe, and Ultimate Editions of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. The Gold Edition gives players the base game, the Season Pass, and early access starting October 2nd. The Deluxe Edition includes the base game and a Deluxe Pack that contains a naval pack and gear packs, along with XP and Drachma boosts. The Ultimate Edition contains everything from the Gold and Deluxe Editions.
In addition to the special editions, anyone that pre-orders Assassin’s Creed Odyssey will get The Blind King, an additional mission where the player encounters a mysterious traveler that turns out to be more than they originally appear.
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey comes out on October 5th for PC, Xbox One, and PS4. Make sure to check out the gallery above, and stay tuned to Gaming Trend for more news and E3 updates.
