The next Assassin’s Creed game has been officially announced and is going to be called Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey. It is going to be set in ancient Greece and will be serving as the sequel to the last year’s extraordinary Assassin’s Creed: Origins.
According to some previously leaked information, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is set during the time of the Flavian Dynasty (69 AD) in the regions of Achaea, Macedonia, Thrace and the Aegean Sea.
Not much is actually known about the game, though it will carry over many of the big changes that we saw in Origins. Some Of the rumored new changes are ;
- The Templars are families that control cities and the three provinces as Roman Clients and administer the propaganda for the new emperor.
- There will be great changes in the story, goals, abilities and customization options
- The story of the characters intersect and the choices made do not affect the outcome of the modern day
- Greater emphasis on the modern day
- Rhodes will be in the base game, but Crete will be a DLC similar to The Hidden Ones
- Bayek and Aya are not in the game, but they play a crucial role in the story
- Many cities play an important role in history, forcing the player to return to them (contrary to Origins)
- The largest cities are Sparta, Athens, Delphi, Thessaloniki, Philippi
- Map size similar to Origins (with water)
- There is 30% more emphasis on the Naval
- The Social Stealth is back
- More customization options
- The next game will take place in Rome, or possibly Japan.
