Assassin's Creed Odyssey is set to release on October 5, for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. What's more, information about the main characters leaked also, including their names and backstory. It's basically building on what Assassin's Creed Origins went for.
Both Kassandra and Alexios come from a Spartan background, however tragic struck them as young children and so, 17 years later they've trained themselves to be mercenaries on the island of Kefalonia. A few information about its story has been revealed along with a handsome trailer showing its vast world and vibrant colors.
Reportedly, Odyssey lets you control either a male or female protagonist, who are said to have connections to the First Civilisation. Raids. As if all those weren't enough, we got to find out tonight that the game will get three different pieces of DLC bringing new stories, new areas, and new activities. Score one for Layla fans.
Show off your extraordinary warrior abilities and shift the tides of battle during one of the deadliest conflicts of the time, the Peloponnesian War. The map for this game will be larger than any Assassin's Creed game. You're able to upgrade your ship's hull, weaponry and mastering device, and perfecting the naval combat seems like it'll play a massive role in the game. Ouch. The imagery of ancient Greece looks attractive, and at the very end, we see she must face a Minotaur. You'll need to fight your way through battle enemies before taking on a series of bosses during the conflict, and it all feels wonderfully epic - nearly what you'd expect a Spartan war to look and feel like.
The upcoming game will also feature dialogue choice options that decide how the story will pan out. However, history will pan out the way it is recorded in history, so don't expect significant changes.
The gameplay trailer showcases how you can customise your ship and crew to be best equipped to steal treasures on the seven seas.
