Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is exactly a month away from today, and the hype and anticipation couldn’t get any bigger within the Assassin’s Creed community. The studio made sure to continously provide fans with new information on player choices, romance options, how Greek mythology will influence the storyline, and even showcased tons of new screenshots and a cinematic trailer earlier at Gamescom 2018.
Creative Director Jonathan Dumont continued to discuss the influence and impact player choices will have on Assassin’s Creed Odyssey’s ending. He claimed that “there are no wrong choices.” Choices will eventually determine the storyline and your character’s relationships, but the game won’t “punish players.”
We try to say that there are no wrong choices. They’re all choices that you make and they’re all valid. They’ll give you what you are looking for I guess, but I think most of the time people try to be nice. I hope. It’s okay to decide depending on the situations – we have multiple storylines, but we have a main storyline that has quite a bit of it inspired by a Greek tragedy so we try to put you into situations where choices will be tough – not necessarily what the impact will be but they’re very emotional. When they make a choice after that in the world we also give you options so you can lie, romance, or decide to attack people in the dialogue as well so those will have immediate consequences. You sort of know where you want to guide things, and sometimes lying to somebody can be beneficial, sometimes it won’t be – it’s up to you to explore. We don’t try to punish players, play your story and it will all pan out in the end I’m sure! But really each situation we try to make you make some decision, either short term, long term or medium term decisions or building up relationships with characters. It’s not about being good or bad, it’s more like, do what you feel you should do here, and you get different results from different players.
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey releases on October 5th for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
