Assassin's Creed Odyssey might not be taking the one year gap that its direct predecessor did, but it's looking like a stellar game. It's building on exactly what made Origins so good, bringing back some of the most beloved features this franchise has ever been known for, and adding radical new changes and departures that will, potentially, forever change the face of the entire series.
Its release is looming large on the horizon, and as we gear up to engage in the age-long battle of good versus evil once again, let's first take a look at the fifteen most interesting bits of info you need to know about Assassin's Creed Odyssey. Without further ado, let's jump right in.

its frustratingly difficult/expensive to upgrade your weapons ( even
with 1.07 update)....if you skip couple of levels then it take 4500+ to
upgrade your weapons (EACH btw)... u can never keep a weapon set you
like.. its so annoying and dumb that i actually gave up playing the
game... i don't know what the fuck they were thinking.. it dsnt add any
value to the game experience even.. it honestly was a waste of money
buying this game simply cos of that..
If you are into the AC story the game has gone to shit, if you are into the graphics and gameplay than it's a great game. I personally having played previous titles of AC and FC would honestly get FC5 despite that the AC franchise is closer to my heart.
Crap I meant to say Origins I keep making mistakes because I'm so pissed off at the fact that they took the shields away from Odyssey I honestly would have been a great game for me if they would have put the shields in it still waiting on those add-ons for Origins let's put some add-ons in Origins
So........ is there any add-ons for Odyssey coming out soon because you can use shields in that game.. or better yet are they going to do the next game based on Norse mythology if you going to take away the shield I really would like to swing thors Hammer around the short version not the two handed Viking war hammer version. . The least you can do is add a couple of Greek mythological creatures to the game to hyping it up not the cat's eyes when ice the 12 foot 3500 pounders that's what the public wants we want to be able to do stuff we can't do in life.
I have a question to ask that I cant figure out or find any answers online. If I start out Assassins Creed Odyssey and though the game I only kill Athenians and then I accidentally kill some Spartans. Does this mean now I have to fight both sides or can the Spartans forgive me haha.
for al those people who think its a no buy without multiplayer IF U LIKE AC this AC IS 99999999999999X times better then ezio's tale and in my opinion it was the best one. i also bought origins this is a waste of money. but take my words if u buy AC oddesey there is no regrets. if they would have add multiplayer to this this would be the best mmorpg dont fool ur self by these comments BEST AC ever!
This looks great imho. I do like the older assassins creed games but i didnt think much of the combat, it was ok but it didnt make me want to go and kill the next soldier badly enough, infact it did the exact opposit and kind of made me do the majority of the game in stealth so for me origins was a massive step in the right direction. I do feel for the people who prefured it how it was because i hate change usualy but i suppose all games these days are getting more action packed and bigger in map size and luckly thats just how i want them to be.
This is literally just a ten minute ad. The game is a reskin of Origins with a bunch of extra garbage tacked on and has so little to do with Assassin’s Creed that the only reason they didn’t make it a new IP was so that they could stay safe in sales by pretending to be in an existing franchise.
I really don't understand why this is called Assassin's Creed, I would bet everything i own that if they released a new RPG IP in an Ancient Greece setting with the same mechanics and graphics, the sails would go bonkers. But nope, gotta be Assassin's Creed, even though nothing about it is about Assassins or their creed. Fucking hell Ubisoft.
im pure assassins creed fan from beginning. i really have to say that they should not sell this as assassins creed as its not true to its origins. should be named totally different but thats my opinion. its great game but its not assassins creed we used to play
Number 1: You can't use shields as a fucking spartan. I discovered this after I already bought it and started playing,I'm really fucking annoyed by this. I was looking forward to using shield and spear or sword and spear in this game specifically because of the theme. It's such a huge fucking shame. There aren't that many games set in ancient greece and this one decided to not fucking give us shields.
It looks lovely ..no one can fault them for that ..i hope the episodic content doesn't sway UPLAY from the winning AC game-play I have mostly loved, regardless i have played less than two hours of AC Origins with no real help sorting it ..even though i have two above spec PC's both Nvidia gpu based 780[3gb] & 1070[8gb] plenty of space on my primary o.s. drive a good sata3 ssd just for games [not daftly installed into c drive programfiles to make Windows from 50gb to 100gb+ and slow, i cant even seem to get thru the keyubindings in settings ..so something is really wrong.. unfortunately i love AC but if good solid computers which don't bluescreen @ anything else fall over in AC. Then i won't buy AC ever again. ps tech support whom ive been thru a fewtimes couldnt fix it even with dxdiag and ac diag ..weird system bugs dog UPLAY i love their passion and energy but their games fall over..
its a great game so far, but, the women are harder to beat than males, and Cassandra is a tranny not a woman.no female of That era would have grown to 6ft plus and built like a shithouse wall. Spartan women never fought in this era ever. they use history as a base line. then the idiots belive it as true. the choices arent that great either, they rarely effect the outcome.
I just started and I hate it already. A choice between a guy hero and a chick. This is what our bitch ass progressive society has brought us to. Fuck not even three or four choices, just some homo and some Dike. I hope China nukes silicon valley so we can get our real game on. #liberalismisamentaldisorder
Ubisoft = russian mafia and GRU sponsored game studio , their software is designed to keep you busy while algorithms go searching fro money and passwords etc, this is UBISOFT.
the main contributor to software design at ubisoft is vladimir putin
I have the gold edition.. I must say after 5 hours of gameplay total... the fighting mechanic is GARBAGE. I feel like I'm in the 1990s of technology. It's not a assassins game.. the graphics actually look worse than origins.. most of origins mechanics were copied over except for the fighting.. which is garbage as mentioned. Origins had amazing fighting imo. Black flag is better than this game.. black flag is close to origins.. but much more fun. This game is a joke so far.. I dont even want to play it and I love AC. The only pro to odyssey so far is the spartan concept. Always was intrigued by spartans.
So the 3 things id like to know before buying Odyssey was
1. Can you play this game without mtx stuff and not be dumped in grind hell for a week ?
2. Is all the cool shit that you used to earn through progression locked behind pay only mtx?
3. Is the PC port getting royally screwed over in terms of performance like in origins ?
And yeah you slightly glanced over #1, and completely neglegted to mention 2 and 3.
I'll admidt its a boring subject, but these days i think they are very relevant.
I loved the old games like Revelation, Black Flag and Rogue but I also love the new ones starting with Syndicate. Even though some say it has nothing to do with Assassins Creed anymore, I think the games are great. Yeah, they have their flaws...but come on...every game has it's flaws. I don't like the present day storyline. Never did, never will. It's not helping the storyline at all and so I could go without it. But hey, it's part of the game so I'll deal with it.
Personally I think that Origins was a beautiful game and the map was amazing. I mean, we talk about Egypt here. What did people expect? Mointains covered with snow? A dschungel? A swamp? Of course most of the map had to be desert.

Seriously..Stop bashing every game you see. The annoying pessimistic negative cynical attitude that these spoiled ungrateful little b**ches constantly vomit all over their keyboard complaining about anything and everything calling everything they see "trash" is so unbelievably lame and irritating. People like that don't deserve to enjoy video games.
Damn GB, you're always on top of these Before You Buys! Thanks, I decided *not* to buy assassins Creed origins 2.5 haha. I can already see the fanboys. But I just don't really enjoy the dark souls esq not assassins Creed feeling combat system they introduced in Origins.
I’m one of the people who paid way too much for this to play early like a fool, I’d like to mention that when installing they popped an acceptance window saying you can’t change your mind and refund it in technical terms before you followed through. Should have taken the warning because it wasn’t worth the $100.00 to play three days early. Another title boosted way beyond its quality and gameplay in propaganda and delivered a mediocre experience so far that lacks completely. It’s origins with map changes and control changes is all and they guide you to play unguided to stall the gameplay time while you look for your quest targets instead of having waypoints automatically activate. Now you have to search them out. Also the controls are wonky at best and truly make it an annoying system especially having to activate certain abilities which only adds more crap to push on the keyboard. Someone mentioned Assassins Witcher, which I’m inclined to agree.
According to the in-game present day story, it’s been 6 years since Desmond gave his life to save the world and nothing has happened since. I think this is due to Ubisoft not wanting a money-making series to be forced to end too soon.
So basically it's not an assassins creed game then?
Here's my thoughts since everyone asked lol:
The whole point of origins was to show how the brotherhood got started and how the Templars started and so on an so fourth so time-line was origins was the first game.
Odyssey takes place around 100 years BEFORE that so basically there's no hidden blades, no robes etc.
So it's a warrior game not an AC game
