In the video we can see how a spartan throws his enemies from a kick, very much like “This is Sparta!” Of 300, the film adaptation of Frank Miller’s limited series of comics of the same name, directed by Zack Snyder.
According previously leaked information, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey will be set during the time of the Flavian Dynasty (69 AD) in the regions of Achaea, Macedonia, Thrace and the Aegean Sea, but not Asia Minor (much of modern Greece).
- The Templars are families that control cities and the three provinces as Roman Clients, and administer the propaganda for the new emperor. We can play as a Spartan assassin.
- 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.
- The possibility of including the region of Judea under Herod’s kingdom to avoid political problemswas discussed , but Judea and the Sicarii will be part of a DLC similar to the Curse of the Pharaohs.
Knowing that it will be revealed at E3 2018, it is very likely that Assassin’s Creed Odyssey will be launched this year.
