Behind the Odyssey Episode 4 Shows Assassin’s Creed Odyssey’s Ancient Greece


Ubisoft has just uploaded this week’s episode of Behind the Odyssey, showing their version of Ancient Greece in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. Ancient Greece will change depending on how you play the game, and your experience will greatly vary depending on your actions and behaviours.

Ubisoft states that the historical characters in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey are very accurate, as they were able to get a massive amount of information on them, such as Sokrates, and recreate them in the Assassin’s Creed universe. Ancient Greece is full of colour and you’ll find life wherever you look. Just take a look at when Alexios dives underwater and swims among the ancient (double ancient?) ruins and jellyfish; Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is looking amazing.

Last week, Behind the Odyssey focused on naval and exploration, explaining how your ship is your home and you will work to build your crew using NPC’s from all over Ancient Greece. Episode 2 focused on combat customisation and how you will level up a whole heap of new abilities to become the ultimate Spartan, or something like that. Read more about episode 2 of Behind the Odyssey here. In week 1, we explored RPG mechanics, and learnt that there will be multiple endings depending on how you choose your dialogue throughout the game. Click here for our coverage of episode 1 of Behind the Odyssey.
