Assassin's Creed Odyssey is set in Ancient Greece and is the next installment in the open-world action/adventure franchise.

Take control of your destiny and write your own epic odyssey as you journey to become a legendary Spartan hero. Live incredible adventures in a world where every choice matters. Rejected by your family, you must embark on an adventure from outcast mercenary to legendary Spartan hero to uncover the truth about your past.

Ancient Greece, 431BCE, a land rich with myths and legends, in the midst of the Peloponnesian War, fought between Sparta and Athens. This world is ruled by the gods, and shaped by myths and legendary creatures. The creative team behind Assassin’s Creed Odyssey recaptured this pivotal moment in history when mythology merged with religion and tradition, shaping Ancient Greek life.

As Alexios or Kassandra, players will encounter these myths firsthand, in the form of Legendary Animals and Mythical Creatures, while battling Mercenaries and defying the Cult of Kosmos. Mercenaries, skilled warriors, will hunt Alexios or Kassandra if they’re caught breaking the law. These tenacious enemies boast advanced combat techniques and abilities, wield valuable weapons and can be accompanied by predatory pets. They will relentlessly track the hero on land and sea as soon as a bounty is placed over their head.


Lurking in the shadows, the mysterious Cult of Kosmos has discovered the existence of a powerful artifact that they are using to spread their influence throughout Greece to manipulate its leaders. Intent on controlling ultimate control over Greece and taking down anyone in their way, these masked figures include politicians, merchants, pirates, generals and can be hidden amongst the hero’s supposed allies.

Over the course of their Odyssey, players will encounter Legendary Animals, inspired by the Herculean myths including the Nemean Lion with impenetrable golden fur, the Lykaon Wolf, an evil beast cursed by the Gods themselves and Kallisto the bear, the angry mother of the Arcadians, to name a few. They will also have the chance to engage in battle with terrifying Mythical Creatures inspired by Greek legends, including Medusa.

Assassin's Creed Odyssey will release worldwide on October 5, 2018, on Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
