Gamescom 2018 is underway, and almost every upcoming game is getting a new trailer, tons of new screenshots or interesting new details and information. Luckily, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey got its share from the new trailers and screenshots. Recently, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Creative Director Jonathan Dumont revealed more details on how Ubisoft changed healing and discussed the different fighting style each faction has. Even before that, Dumont participated in a quick-fire question session with Game Informer where he talked about several different topics regarding Assassin’s Creed Odyssey.
The cinematic trailer below features the two main characters Alexios and Kassandra, as well as impressive shots of the game’s scenery, fighting sequences and a glimpse of Odyssey’s storyline.
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.
Here is the game’s cinematic trailer. Assassin’s Creed Odyssey releases on October 5th for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
