Assassin’s Creed will have a new installment this year with Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. The video game is set in 431 BCE where players will have the choice of being a mercenary that fights for Athens and the Delian League or the Peloponnesian League led by Sparta. Either way, players will be a descendant of Spartan King Leonidas I during the Peloponnesian War.
Much like the previous Assassin’s Creed installments, Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey will feature a modern day protagonist as well. Ubisoft will be reintroducing players to Layla Hassan who was present during Assassin’s Creed Origins.
There will also be an RPG progression system included in the game as well where players can adjust their character skills and attributes. Likewise, with a branching dialogue system, your narrative journey may offer a unique ending thus giving players an incentive in going back and replaying the game.
As a result of the RPG progression, open world, dialogue choices and now knowing that the Assassin’s Creed franchise won’t have a new installment in 2019, we expect the game to be pretty lengthy. A recent report made by PowerPyx confirmed that gamers will need to set some time aside to go through the campaign.
According to PowerPyx, the game will take at least forty hours to complete and that the game is massive. Likewise, because the world ramps up in difficulty as you level, players will likely end up doing a lot of side quests in order to progress through the campaign.
You can soon enjoy Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey for yourself as the game is set to release on October 5, 2018, for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC platforms.
