l change of direction imparted by Ubisoft the saga of the Assassin’s Creed continues to bear fruit: after the success of twelve months ago with the release of Assassin’s Creed, Origins, the publisher of the French has reached the results are still more encouraging to the debut of Assassin’s Creed, Odyssey, available on PC, PS4 and Xbox One from October 5.

As you have read, the new adventure set in Ancient Greece has recorded the best launch of the saga in the current generation of console. The house beyond the alps, has not hidden its satisfaction, considering the skepticism that had accompanied the choice of proposing to return to a new episode, after the interval of two years elapsed between the release of Syndicate, and the Origins

We read the words of the vice president of sales and marketing, Geoffroy Sardin: “We are extremely proud of what the team has achieved with Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and we are honored hospitality that has been reserved by the critics and the players. Based on the quality of the game and the reactions are very encouraging of the public, we expect that Odyssey is one of the best chapters of the Assassin’s Creed of all time. The launch is just the beginning of this epic journey. We have big plans for Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, that will keep players engaged and allow you to explore the exciting and fascinating world of the game for a long time”.

Developed by Ubisoft Quebec, in collaboration with eight other studies, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey takes us for the first time to discover the wonders of Ancient Greece, in what is the chapter most dating, from the chronological point of view, of the entire saga. In the background of the adventures experienced in the role of Alexios or Kassandra, is dominated by the famous Peloponnesian War, one of the skirmishes the most well-known and also the most bloody of ancient history, that had for protagonists the cities of Athens and Sparta.

Ubisoft assures that the debut of the Odyssey is only the beginning, from the moment that you have developed a full roadmap of additional content that will extend the narrative with a structure that is episodic. The buyers of the Season Pass will in fact access to two new stories, titled, respectively, the Legacy of the First Blade and The Fate of Atlantis, each consisting of three episodes. In addition, all players will receive missions fiction free called The Lost Tales of Greece, who will be accompanied by some in-game events and from access to the Discovery Tour, which was launched successfully last year in Assassin’s Creed, Origins.

It seems to me that the new course of the game, also characterised by a greater support of content distributed over time, to confirm as stated by the CEO of Ubisoft, Yves Guillemot, in the month of June, or that Assassin’s Creed does not come to be an annual event as is the case for many years in the past. On that occasion the leader of the publisher of the French had said that the company has decided to adopt a new strategy for the use of the trademark. A renewed approach which in essence embraces so much the gameplay as the distribution of the content over time, in the manner of games as a service very much in vogue in the current market.
