Ubisoft has released a new launch trailer for Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. It’s a pretty interesting trailer. Basically, it has a framing device of a blind old man verbally bashing your character and basically calling you destined to be a nobody. The visuals of all the heroic exploits of your character play over his narration.
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is just a little more than a week away; even less if you’ve preordered any version above the Standard and Deluxe edition. So, of course, Ubisoft is stepping up the hype game, as if an Assassin’s Creed game needs it. Either way, they’ve released a brand new launch trailer for AC Odyssey to whet the appetites of players worldwide. The video does a pretty great job of showing you some of the most interesting stuff from the game (no gameplay, though; it’s just a cinematic trailer). Who doesn’t want to be a descendant of Leonidas fighting their way through Greece?
The video is basically a blind old man insulting your character. He rambles on about how your destiny is to lead a wholly unremarkable life. You’ll never be in battle, you’ll never know what bravery and courage means, that kind of spiel. While he talks, the video goes on to show the many heroic deeds that your character will go through, definitely proving the man wrong. The footage jumps from Alexios to Cassandra, showing off both playable characters. In the end, Alexios / Cassandra draws his / her sword and holds it to the old man’s throat, shutting him up nice and quick.
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is coming out on October 5th, 2018. It’ll be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. If you preoder the Gold Edition and above, you’ll get early access and have the opportunity to start playing on October 2nd. In Japan, the game will also be playable on the Nintendo Switch through the console’s streaming service, which, unfortunately, isn’t available anywhere else yet.
