Release date: October 5, 2018 Platforms: PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One Publisher: Ubisoft Genre: Action/Adventure 1. Choose your character Assassin's Creed: Odyssey lets you choose who to play as. You pick between Kassandra, the female protagonist, or Alexios, the male protagonist, both of whom are descendants of Leonidas I, the famous king of Sparta during the Second Persian War. The choice won't really affect the game that much, but it allows players to further personalize their experience. 2. New combat abilities Odyssey spices up the series' combat with new special abilities. During any given fight, you build up an ability meter that can be spent on a handful of abilities like a powerful Spartan kick that sends enemies flying, a ranged attack that allows you to nock several arrows in a single shot, and a melee move where you steal your enemy's shield and bash them with it. 3. Boats are back in a big way Taking a note from Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, naval warfare is back, baby. With the Aegean Sea at your fingertips, it's only natural that ship battles are a feature of the landscape. You can build up a crew, take down pirate ships, board other boats, and kick enemies into the sea to watch them get eaten by sharks. 4. Choices matter Your input and behavior in Assassin's Creed: Odyssey has a big impact on the game. During the main storyline and in side quests, players will be able to make decisions about how to tackle certain predicaments and who they form positive and negative relationships with. These decisions will even have an impact on how the game ends. 5. Mercenaries Odyssey has its own system of checks and balances with the inclusion of mercenaries. Because there is no formal police service in Greece, citizens will employ mercenaries to take out people who have wronged them, including you. 6. Big battles Odyssey takes place during the Peloponnesian War, which means there will be large-scale battles like the series has never seen before. Players can help Spartan armies fight back against Athenians in these battles by taking out random soldiers as well as key commanders and heroes to turn the tide of the war in Sparta's favor.
