E3 2018: Embark on your Own Epic in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey has been in the works for a couple of years. Today, during the Ubisoft E3 show, 8 minutes of gameplay footage was revealed. We learned you may choose between Alexios or Kassandra and the beginning of the game and that’s who you play as throughout.

You are a mercenary who embarks on a journey to find your family and defeat those who tore it apart. There are a number of islands making up the world of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey which means your ship will serve as a home base. The game features interactive dialogue because choice is key and will alter how the story progresses. We see the gorgeous island of Mykonos and its inhabitants, some of whom may be other mercenaries attempting to hunt you down. RPG features come into play during combat. Special abilities and weapons will offer you a diverse arsenal.┬áLarge scale battles between factions take place whether you get involved or not but their outcomes have an impact on the future of Greece. During these you will have to defeat boss-like characters who have their own set of abilities.

At the end of the video, we get a glimpse of what else is out there. An open world filled with monsters, sprawling landscapes and mythical locations is waiting. Have a look at the gameplay footage below to see just how epic your odyssey will become.
