Assassin’s Creed Odyssey will be the next installment in the Assassin’s Creed franchise and it was first revealed at E3 a few days ago. In an interview with GamesBeat at the event, Scott Phillips, the director of the game, provided some new insights into what the game is going to be like.
The director stated that this next installment in the series may be the deepest game in the series we’ve seen so far. Indeed, the game will have a lot going for it like the branching quests, the open world naval exploration, an expanded dialogue system, and more.
Phillips stated, “In the core, the second to second, I think we have the finest tune and the best, the most fun version of what Assassin’s Creed can be on the gamepad. And then I think at the more meta level, what we allow you to do with choices, with options, with role play, with romance—I’m super excited for players to get their hands on that. I think it brings Assassin’s Creed to a whole new level of interactivity, of choice, of dynamism, of making history your playground.”
This game will be set in Ancient Greece and we’re totally excited to find out what this setting will have in store for us. Of course, a greater degree of interactivity is something that we already saw in Assassin’s Creed Origins, so this seems like the right way to go. Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is set to release on October 5 for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
