Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, Assassin’s Creed franchise for the past years saw many ups and down. Honestly, most reviewers and fans voted Assassin’s Creed 2 and Black Flag were the most loved games of this franchise. But after the arrival of the origins, the series was actually saved. It’s because it redefined the play in some manners. The Battle systems, Eagle vision and also some RPG elements. Now they followed the same path with other polished features. Yet, I love it.
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey the 11th installment of the franchise. It takes us back to ancient Greece, where the name Spartans and Athens hit us up. Did really Assassin’s formed in that century?.

WHY NO ASSASSIN’S IN THE GAME.
Assassin’s Creed story was simple, Assassin’s VS Templars. They fight for a thing for Piece of Eden. These are all so basic. But how they were formed. It’s a question which comes around our head so many times while playing it. On October 27, 2017, Ubisoft made a clear answer on how assassins were formed by releasing Assassin’s Creed Origins. Where Bayek and Aya fight against the Order. So it’s the time period where Assassin’s were born, But who did they fight against, hmm the order. And how did they form, There is no exact clear explanation to that. Maybe in Odyssey, there might be an origin story for the villains uh The Order. So there won’t be any Assassin. But what actually happened is in the game.
NEW FEATURES OF ASSASSIN’S CREED ODYSSEY
1) YOUR CHOICE
We the two protagonist system was implemented in Assassin’s Creed Syndicate and then followed by Assassin’s Creed Origins. Kassandra and Alexios are two new protagonists in this game. You cannot switch them in between the game. You’ll able chose anyone at the beginning. The story won’t be affected much but the player experiences the difference.

2) DECISION TAKING ELEMENTS
In Assassin’s Creed Odyssey we can see much-improved RPG elements than the origins. So, the story moves on how you react to it and making decisions. You can lie or betray relationships and role play the hero. So far we can play the game again and again with a different experience. As the animations regarding RPG, it looks quite well. The ending is depending on how you react in the story.
3) BRAND NEW COMBAT SYSTEM
In this franchise, to be honest, we have seen many animations while we fight. Let me explain, Before at a tap of a button we kill an enemy in front of us, it needs only decent distance between you and the enemy. Next, the animations start to play. IN origins they redefined it, so we have to move closer to them as our strike hits them and individual animation occurs. It was perfect and gave a good combat experience. But now we pick those animations as level based. as we rank up we unlock new abilities like Spartan kick, Different melee attacks, shield attacks, different aiming systems and more. This thing creates excitement.

4) NEW NAVAL COMBAT SYSTEM
Naval combat was first introduced in Assassin’s Creed 3 but only as a mission. Later on, it gave us a game covering mostly naval combat as Assassin’s Creed 4 BlackFlag. After a long time, we can play like the black flag in Odyssey. This time it is not only in the mission. We build up crew, take down ships, kick enemies into the sea and watching them get eaten by sharks. Aegean looks really beautiful in the game.
5) NEW BATTLE SYSTEM
The battle sequence in this franchise was kept as a fader. In Assassin’s Creed 3 Ubisoft did a good job in those battle gameplay. They maintained a balance in that area but unfortunately, we cannot feel those battle as large as we see in movies. This time instead of redefined they took their step in the Battle sequence. I’m not a history buff but its the time period of Peloponnesian War so there should be a large scale of battle. We need to help Sparta against Athens army. We’ll play inside the battle taking out random soldiers and commanders.
