Follow the Hunt for Medusa with New Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Gameplay

While last year’s Assassin’s Creed Origins merely dabbled in the mythological nature of ancient history, the upcoming title in this open world franchise is looking to make it a primary factor.

Earlier today, Ubisoft released a new gameplay demo from last week’s Gamescom for Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, which features an intense showdown with the statue-obsessed Medusa in all her snake-haired glory. As mentioned at the beginning of the video below, the gameplay comes from the later stages of the lengthy RPG, so players looking to avoid spoilers may want to wait until the full game releases on October 5 for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
