A world of danger lies in your path as you make your Odyssey across Ancient Greece! Assassin’s Creed Odyssey available on October 5th, 2018.
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey places more emphasis on role-playing elements than previous games in the series. The game will contain dialogue options, branching quests, and multiple endings. The player will be able to choose the gender of the main character, adopting the role of Alexios or Kassandra. The player will also have the ability to develop romantic relationships with non-playable characters of both genders, regardless whether they choose to play as Alexios or Kassandra. The game features a notoriety system in which mercenaries will chase after the player if they commit crimes like killing or stealing from non-playable characters.
Both Alexios and Kassandra start the game as a mercenary and a descendant of the Spartan king Leonidas I. They inherit his broken spear, which is forged into a blade to become a weapon that grants the player special abilities in combat. The game uses a skill tree system that allows the player to unlock new abilities. The three skill trees include “hunter”, which improves player character’s archery, “warrior” which puts emphasis on combat, and “assassin” which focuses on stealth. This replaces the system used in Origins, which granted the player a series of passive abilities.
