E3 2018 has seen the announcement Assassin’s Creed Odyssey download, the latest game in the action-adventure series of Ubisoft. We learned everything about the game’s settings, and we even had the opportunity to try it out on our own. Keep reading for our complete thoughts. Odyssey will take place in ancient Greece during the conflict between Athens and Sparta, and the Peloponnesian War. Ubisoft wanted to emphasize that the game will offer a real RPG experience, building on the base built by Origins. It should not really be a surprise that when you start, Odyssey plays very similar to Origins. As you explore the new Greek framework – our demonstration took place on the islands of Mykonos and Delos – there is a familiar mix of exploration, stealth and combat. Where there have been changes, they are turning quite regularly in one direction: taking over from Origins, Odyssey is looking at its RPG elements, building your character choices, dialogue options, and skill progression to make each playthrough a little more to own.
It starts with the character selection, where for the first time you can play as a man (Alexios) or a woman (Kassandra). Coming from a series that chose not to offer playable female characters because they represented too much extra work to animate, this is a big step forward (so late) for an Assassin’s Creed game to allow you to play as a woman. This choice, however, will not affect what you will have to do in the rest of the game: not even the new romantic options, which allow you to flirt with men or women, whether you play as a man or as a wife. Another victory. We hit a few romantic incentives in our day with the game, flirting with a Spartan bashed captain about what he would do if we were under his command. We will leave the rest to your imagination. If fighting is more your thing, you get a little more choice there too. Skill progression has been modified to free up your options and entice you to play with the skills you have in three main areas: Hunter, Warrior and Assassin, which revolve around ranged attacks, melee and stealth respectively.
You can spend skill points to unlock new abilities, mapping them to combinations of shoulder and front buttons, giving you quick access to a range of interesting moves, keeping the fight a bit more varied. One of our favorites has been to light our sword at the fair for temporarily increased damage, though 300 fans will be happy to know that there is a kick from Sparta, and you can use it to chase people and surprise you. Is. Sparta! ” Like you do it. This is just one of the many ways in which the Greek setting feels like an adjustment too natural for the franchise. Whether on sunny islands, trade with the Spartans or the ethical issues posed by Socrates himself, Odyssey makes a good argument for packing all this and moving to Santorini. The developers are clearly having fun with Kassandra, when Kassandra throws a “malaka” on the people who have angered her – we’ll let you find the translation for yourself. Beyond the new setting, Odyssey is basically much more than what you’ve probably liked in Origins. Once again, you have an eagle to spot targets, direct you to missions, enemy hiding places, secrets, collectibles, and more.
The naval battle is back, and we think it will play a much bigger role – the game is not based on a collection of islands for nothing – and it’s fast and fluid. You can attack enemy ships with arrows and javelins (which you can ignite for good measure), push them to break their hulls, or simply embark them and do the dirty work yourself. If it’s not on a scale big enough for you, there are also fixed battles, in which you lead a skirmish camp with up to 300 NPCs. This is a great twist of combat strategy, requiring you to prioritize the heavy hitters to protect your allies while simultaneously avoiding attacks from enemies around you, resulting in a combat challenge that will seriously test your dodge mastery and of the parade.
