Watch Episode 2 of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Behind the Odyssey Series

August 11, 2018

Ubisoft has today uploaded episode 2 in the Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Developer Diary series called “Behind the Odyssey”. In this episode, we learn about how Alexios and Kassandra were born in Sparta but left at a young age and therefore do not fight 100% like a Spartan but instead have their own unique solo fighting style. There are 30 amazing combat skills to unlock and upgrade, however players can still play most of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey in the shadows if they want to.

Last week, Behind The Odyssey focused on RPG mechanics, and we 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.
