Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Gets New Cinematic Trailers, Screenshots
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, the new entry in the series by Ubisoft, is soon going to be released on PC and consoles, and Ubisoft has been talking more about its upcoming game these past few days. Today, the European publisher shared some new information about the game as well as new trailers and screenshots.
The new trailers, available below, showcase the two main characters Alexios and Kassandra, introducing the game’s world and story in the process.
Ancient Greece, 431BCE, a land rich with myths and legends, in the midst of the Peloponnesian War, fought between Sparta and Athens. This world is ruled by the gods, and shaped by myths and legendary creatures. The creative team behind Assassin’s Creed Odyssey recaptured this pivotal moment in history when mythology merged with religion and tradition, shaping Ancient Greek life.
As Alexios or Kassandra, players will encounter these myths firsthand, in the form of Legendary Animals and Mythical Creatures, while battling Mercenaries and defying the Cult of Kosmos. Mercenaries, skilled warriors, will hunt Alexios or Kassandra if they’re caught breaking the law. These tenacious enemies boast advanced combat techniques and abilities, wield valuable weapons and can be accompanied by predatory pets. They will relentlessly track the hero on land and sea as soon as a bounty is placed over their head.
New screenshots have also been released, showcasing the game’s open world, gameplay mechanics, enemies and more.
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey launches on October 5th in all regions on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
