Assassin's Creed Odyssey is an upcoming entry in the staple franchise which takes place hundreds of years before the establishment of the Assassin's Brotherhood. The game takes you to Greece and places you in the shoes of a Spartan warrior. According to Ubisoft — building upon the foundation of Assassin's Creed Origins — Assassin's Creed Odyssey takes player choice to the next level.
Today, Ubisoft released a new trailer which focuses on just that. You can chose to be a ruthless mercenary who's only in it for the gold, or someone who helps people no matter what. Selecting various dialogue options takes you down various paths. The legacy you leave behind depends on how you interact with others. For example, if you go and act like a nuisance, certain characters may place bounties on your head.
This type of freedom hasn't been available in the Assassin's Creed series before, so it's great to see its introduction. Hopefully the choices will be meaningful, because a lot of games in recent memory have advertised that but haven't delivered. So far, only Divinity: Original Sin II has been able to deliver complete freedom.
Assassin's Creed Odyssey should launch on October 5, 2018, starting at $59.99. Those who purchase the Ultimate Edition or Gold Edition can play it on October 2. The game is expected to achieve native 4K resolution on Xbox One X through dynamic scaling.
