Recently, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey was unveiled and some details about the game have been revealed. It’s been noted that one of the newest features is dialogue options, though it is not just for show as the dialogue options can impact the story later on according to Ubisoft. As part of this, romance options are also possible and if you chose the wrong dialogue choices, this could hinder your attempts at in-game romancing. This can impact particular missions as well. Ship combat is a returning feature as well, and RPG elements, which were prevalent in previous entries, have been expanded on though how is not yet known in any detail. The director noted modern day gameplay will make for a return after effectively ending with Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, but there is no detail given, perhaps for story spoilers.
More can be seen below but it seems promising. The vagueness is off-putting though, but it does heavily imply that story will be a huge focus for them. The general story of Assassin’s Creed has been incredibly divisive to say the least, and even that may be an understatement. Stay tuned for more details about the upcoming game as they arise.
