One of the features that Assassin’s Creed Odyssey will offer to players is taming animals. Just how applicable it will be in the game remains to be seen, but it’s a fun little side activity. It does require investing points into a certain skill, but come on, who doesn’t want to fight side by side with a lion, or a bear, or a wolf?
There will be a ton of stuff to do in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. The series is definitely staying on course of becoming an expansive RPG experience; a far cry from the series’ more humble beginnings. Among many other things, AC Odyssey is going to let you tame wild animals. You won’t be able to tame all animals, and you will have to invest into the Beast Master skill in the Hunter Ability tree. Taming animals is not exactly too worthwhile, but hey, you sure can do it. Hell, you can even pet the animal that you’ve tamed. Isn’t that all sorts of exciting?
Confusingly, you won’t be able to tame, say, an angry dog, but wolves, bears, and wild cats are fair game, depending on how far you are into the Beast Master skill. So, here’s how it works. You first have to knock the animal you’re trying to tame down with, say, paralyzing arrows. Then, you just approach it and hit the button prompt to tame the animal. You can then untame it, for some reason. Anyway, you can then pet the animal. It doesn’t seem to do much, but it’s kinda fun. The animal will fight by your side, but it dies pretty quickly, so the practical application is kinda dubious. Maybe it’s just the wolves that are weak; bears might be a better sidekick.
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is coming out on October 5th, 2018. It will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
