Forge Your Odyssey in the Assassin’s Creed Odyssey – Power of Choice Trailer


A lot of new features are set to make their debut to the Assassin’s Creed series.  As we grow closer to the Assassin’s Creed Odyssey release date, Ubisoft has been giving regular updates in the form of videos to show how these new features will affect the game.  Among the many changes, few will have as big an impact as the ability to choose what kind of Ancient Greek warrior Alexios and Kassandra will be.  Today’s preview gives us a look into the Assassin’s Creed Odyssey’s “Power of Choice”… 

Movesets, gameplay, and design will continue to change and innovate, throughout the series, but the ability to actually choose the outcome of the game is big.  It’s not only big for the Assassin’s Creed franchise, but it’s big for the developer, as well.  When you look at Ubisoft’s dossier, the amount of games where your choice matters are few and far between.  Having the option to choose what happens and somewhat craft how your story goes is a monumental shift, one that I welcome about as much as I welcome the opportunity to play in Ancient Greece. (Very. Much. So.)

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey releases on October 5, 2018, on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Windows PC.  To read our gameplay session with the game at E3 2018, click here.
