Gamescom 2018: Greece Will Probably Kill You in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey

A new cinematic trailer for Assassin’s Creed Odyssey was unveiled for Gamescom. If there was an ancient Greek tourism agency, they would probably hate it. It is filled with all the things that threaten to make your stay there less than comfortable.

The first things are what you might expect. There are lions (no tigers, unfortunately) and bears. Oh my! Based on the scale with the character, these encounters should be treated seriously. If not, the wounds you receive will hopefully be treated seriously.

There are also human threats. Odyssey will feature battleground combat. As a soldier, you will be faced with all the dangers of ancient war. That might be a relief considering the more dangerous politics. There are several people in masks who are likely in power and want to remain that way.

The final vision is of Medusa. The lady who has snakes for hair and can’t get anyone to look her in the eyes makes a quick appearance as she writhes in the shadows. Whether the game will feature myths like Medusa or whether that is just a vision is hard to tell. Color us intrigued.

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey seeks to push the series a little further into RPG territory. With a male and female playable character, decisions that impact the story, and a setting rich with history and lore, Odyssey might be quite a departure in some ways while still keeping the open world exploration. I can’t be the only one who missed ancient Greece in a game that released earlier this year.

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey will release on October 5th.
