Assassin's Creed Odyssey Set In Ancient Greece


Quote:
New Leak Reveals Assassin's Creed Odyssey, Set In Ancient Greece

The next Assassin’s Creed is called Odyssey and will take place in ancient Greece, according to a new report from the French site JeuxVideoLive, which adds that Odyssey is a sequel to last year’s Assassin’s Creed Origins.

Rumors about the next Assassin’s Creed have been circulating for months now—some real, some fake—but the one we’ve been hearing since January from our own sources is that the game is indeed set in Greece, and that it’ll be even more of a drastic departure for the series than Origins. We’ve heard the same details from three people who have played the game, and several more who have heard about it secondhand. While Origins added Witcher-like RPG elements, Odyssey will take things even further, those people said, bringing dialogue options to the series for the first time. You’ll be able to play as either a male or a female protagonist, although the builds we’ve heard about did not feature Origins’ main characters Bayek or Aya, but new heroes.

Two of those sources confirmed that Odyssey will be out during Ubisoft’s 2019 fiscal year, which ends on March 31, 2019. Although the previously-annualized series had skipped 2016 in the wake of 2014's disappointing Assassin’s Creed: Unity, it’s likely that this one will be out this fall, returning to the yearly schedule for which the popular franchise has long been known.

Ubisoft did not immediately respond to a request for comment. We’re expecting to see more at E3. A tipster also sent their own shots of the key chain, which is arriving at gaming stores across the world today.

It's pointless calling this odyssey if it isn't THE actual adventure.

Huh? I think Ubisoft has been killing it recently. Ghost Recon, Rainbow Six, The Division, Watch Dogs, Far Cry, Assassin's Creed, etc. They've all been fun, even if I don't have time to play them each for hundreds of hours.

Looks to me like a Roman kicking a Greek. Could be a Spartan kicking an Athenian. Persians didn't dress like that.

I was under the impression that the Keychain is a GameStop store item, just some clerk took it out of the box a week early.

Could be.

Speaking of E3... Evil do you go to E3? I KNOW you'd be able to get in with a site like yours.

Greece is surrounded by water with ridiculous amounts of coastline. Some sort of ship sailing is guaranteed.

Ship sailing and pirates are different. The sea combat in Origins, for example, was not as fun or exciting as Black Flag simply because of the mechanics of naval combat for that era.

Sadly I doubt we will see anything like Black Flag again as Ubisoft as their own multi-player pirate game: Skull and Bones.

Not sure if I'll be attending PAX West this year. Didn't get tickets...and last year PAX gave me grief about media for some reason... Kinda weird honestly cuz I can get into every other media event just fine...

Possibly? That might just make for a convenient border for the play area.

It will be interesting to see what this game is. Not because I will ever play it, but just because of how it will land on the consoles. If this is designed to take advantage of pc and Scorpio, then we may see a mess on PS4.

Or will this be the split gen title that they take to ps5?

I hope so too, it's felt like the PAX swag has been lackluster for the last few years. I got tickets for Friday and Sunday this time.

I hope not. As much as I enjoyed that part of Black Flag, I'd much rather not see that in any future AC games.
