You can see exactly how many of your micro-decisions matter when Assassin's Creed Odyssey launches on October 5, 2018. Earlier today game's description was visible via the PlayStation Store where a few eagle-eyed gamers (no pun intended) managed to grab a few snapshots of it before it was pulled.
Assassin's Creed: Odyssey lets you choose who to play as. Live incredible adventures in a world where every choice matters.
The company goes on to explain that players get to customize their gear, personalize their ship, and ultimately upgrade their abilities to make their way to legendary status - which, in this game, means becoming a Spartan hero. Nearly immediately after this is said we see some NPC of Socrates jawing away.
We were introduced to the psychological thriller Transcendence previous year, but we actually got to see the game in action at E3 2018. Ubisoft revealed details about Odyssey at E3 Expo on Monday and showcased the world premiere of the trailer. This time, you'll be on the Aegean Sea with your ship at times, and able to interact with Spartans, Athenians, pirates, and mercenaries on the sea.
Now that we're done drooling over that initial cinematic reveal for the next entry into the Assassin's Creed franchise, it's time to look at what kind of gameplay experience Odyssey has to offer interested fans.
The gameplay is very much like what you could do in Assassin's Creed: Black Flag.
Assassin's Creed Odyssey will take place during the Peloponnesian War.
We got to see more footage of the toys-to-life game Starlink: Battle for Atlas at E3 2018, but we also learned that Ubisoft and Nintendo are teaming up to bring Star Fox to the game.
There will be a dialogue system that stresses the importance of choice, allowing you to pick whichever option you'd like that has clear consequences.
Assassin's Creed: Odyssey is expected to release by March 31, 2019.
Dwane Casey to Coach Pistons
The Detroit Pistons are hiring Dwane Casey to be their next head coach, according to a report from Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN . Having spent many hours with Dwane over the last few weeks, I'm confident he is the right person to get us to the next level.
