The game will be released on October 5th.
The British portal Unilad Gaming published a video about the game by mistake and quickly deleted it, but we managed to save a copy in VKontakte.
In a brief interview with the narrative director of Odyssey, not only are the first shots of the gameplay shown, but the release date is also reported – October 5th.
This means that Odyssey will be released three days after Forza Horizon 4 and just a week before Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII.
Action Odyssey starts in 431 BC – at the dawn of the Peloponnesian War , in which the Union of Delos (Athens) and the Peloponnesian Union (Sparta) participated. That is, the game is still a prequel to Assassin’s Creed Origins.
The game will resemble a mix of Black Flag and Origins. Sea battles will again be given much attention, as events will unfold on many small islands. Ships can be bought, improved, and customized to your taste. Moreover, the player will have to hire a team, and each participant can potentially give the ship various improvements – damage, speed or accuracy.
The combat system is the development of that of Assassin’s Creed Origins with an emphasis on spartan methods of battle management. Weapons and armor can be customized and improved.
In Odyssey, the two main characters are Kassandra and Alexios. They have a common history, so the differences in the passage will be mostly cosmetic. They were both born in a Spartan family and trained from childhood until a certain personal tragedy occurred. 17 years after what happened, both protagonists work as mercenaries.
Odyssey is the first game of the series with branched dialogues, however, the outcome of historical events will not be allowed to change. User decisions will mainly affect the personal arches of the protagonist.
In present tense, Leila from Assassin’s Creed Origins will come back. She will continue to search for traces of the First Civilization.
The developers once again promise the biggest world in the history of the series.
At the moment, Odyssey is officially announced, but apart from the logo, the developers themselves have not yet shown anything. Nevertheless, on June 11, screenshots of the game appeared on the network .
