Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Overview

Ubisoft presents the highly anticipated game of 2018 Assassin's Creed Odyssey. In fact, this is the eleventh Assassin's Creed instalment and now twenty produced from Ubisoft Quebec. However, the game of epic proportions begins in the fictional history Peloponnesian War of 431BCE. Furthermore, a rift between the Athens and Sparta only to cast a shadow of violence and death in the Empire.

Since the release of the concept, Odyssey has continued to have a supportive fan base. Not to mention, the pre-beta of Assassin's Creed Odyssey has received massively positive reviews from the lucky gamers accepted to test the game. As a matter of fact, the games open world graphics, story, and overall gameplay exceed past Assassin's Creed games of the past.

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Gameplay

You begin by choosing between a male (Alexios) or female character (Kassandra). Both characters are mercenaries with family relation to the Spartan King Leonidas.  where they have been handed down the mystical spear that grant each player above average fighting abilities. From here your skills are mastered to survive the harsh war-torn environment.

Meanwhile, the open world captures personally created relationships with nonplayers within the game. Furthermore, players can delve even farther and commit acts of crime and then relentlessly becoming hunted until the crime is dealt with.  With this in mind, artificial intelligence plays a large part of the game as you begin to complete chapters of the story. As an illustration, skills like hunting or weapons add to your skill tree making you a more powerful warrior. Additionally, fantastic finishing moves like mass rain or arrows or powerful physical abilities.

Much like past Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag once again you will command a ship. Moreover, the ship at your command has attack features and players will be able to navigate through battles and cast arrows at opponents. The only complaint is that for an open world you are constrained to geographical regions.

Although each player explores particular islands and cities in their own ways, we all travel through this narrative in much the same order, following a strict geographic ordering. I don’t mind this, but it certainly isn’t an “open world.” ~ Colin Campbell of Polygon

Greek Mythology

Ubisoft decided to merge Greek Mythology with a pseudo-historical storyline. However, this addition creates an exciting level for the game. As an illustration, gamers will test their battle skills against Medusa and survive against her snake-haired stone magic. With this in mind, the overall entertainment value surpasses what is to be expected.
