In relation to Murderer’s Creed video games it’s not a matter of if it should be launched. As a substitute, it’s turn into the place and when (each in actual life and in-game). Though we have been sure that there could be one other Murderer’s Creed sport after 2017’s extraordinarily profitable Origins, it wasn’t till the leak of a keyring and a subsequent affirmation from Ubisoft that we will now say we all know it’s going to be known as Murderer’s Creed Odyssey.
Data on Odyssey is skinny on the bottom in the meanwhile and though we expect it’s a secure guess that the sport will take gamers again to Historic Greece, we will’t actually make sure of something. Right here we’ve gathered every little thing we’ve heard in regards to the sport to this point, earlier than its huge reveal at E3 2018.

Murderer’s Creed Odyssey launch date
After the Murderer’s Creed sequence took a yr out between Syndicate and Origins, there’s been a query round whether or not the sport will return to its annual launch cycle or transfer to a extra spaced out launch cycle.
We don’t but have an official launch date for Murderer’s Creed Odyssey however based on Kotaku, sources have stated that Murderer’s Creed Odyssey will probably be launched within the 2019 fiscal yr. This could put the discharge date at March 31 2019 on the newest. Given the sequence normally opts for an October/November launch window this may counsel that we’ll see Murderer’s Creed return to its annual cycle and launch later this yr.
We are able to’t make sure of this, after all, with out official affirmation. Given Ubisoft had stated it was happy with Origins’ reception and attributed a lot of the success to the additional time taken in improvement, we’d be stunned by the discharge of one other sport just one yr later. However we’re certain we’ll hear extra about Murderer’s Creed Odyssey’s launch date throughout Ubisoft’s presentation at E3.
Murderer’s Creed Odyssey trailers
The one type of footage we’ve from Murderer’s Creed Odyssey is from the trailer Ubisoft used to substantiate the sport’s existence earlier than E3. It’s a brief clip that exhibits what seems to be a Spartan soldier 300-ing one other soldier from a cliff. It’s onerous to say which military this second soldier represents. We would not need to be them anyway.

Murderer’s Creed Odyssey information and rumors
It’s prone to be set in historical Greece
Earlier than the teaser for Murderer’s Creed Odyssey was revealed, there have been already rumors that the subsequent sport could be set in Historic Greece. The Spartan helmet and Spartan image on the finish of the official trailer definitely appears to say this would be the case.
What this leaves us questioning, although, is when in Historic Greek historical past the sport will happen. Experiences counsel that this will probably be a direct sequel to Murderer’s Creed Origins, but the Historic Greek empire and the Spartans at their strongest vastly pre-date the time setting of Murderer’s Creed Origins.
Based on Kotaku, sources have stated that this sport will probably be set tons of of years earlier than Origins. However given Origins was imagined to be the founding of the Hidden Ones, the precursor to the Murderer’s brotherhood, and there are additionally studies it is a direct sequel, issues don’t fairly add up.
It may very well be doable that the sport will span a number of timelines – one which takes us to a time earlier than Origins, one which straight continues the Origins story, and one which is able to keep on the storyline within the modern-day. The title Odyssey would definitely swimsuit that type of narrative construction in addition to a Greek setting.
Contemplating Aya provides Bayek a hidden blade in Origins that after belonged to Darius, who assassinated the Persian King Xerxes through the Greco-Persian wars tons of of years earlier, we might return to a time that pre-dates even the Hidden Ones. This could at the very least provide a thematic sequel, reasonably than a story one.
The Spartans could also be concerned
The sport’s quick trailer definitely means that the Spartans will probably be concerned in Odyssey in some capability. Not solely does the soldier in crimson kicking the opposite soldier from the cliff virtually scream ‘That is Sparta’, the image above the sport’s title is the long-lasting Spartan helmet and image that’s continuously used on their shields.
Apparently, this the other way up V appears prefer it may very well be an early model of the blade-like official Murderer’s insignia. Which makes us marvel much more about the concept that this sport will inform a narrative of the brotherhood that pre-dates even the Hidden Ones. We noticed the place the origins of the place the time period Eagle Imaginative and prescient got here from with Bayek, which might make up the wing-like base of the image, now we might see the origins of the hidden blade which tops it. We have defined our ideas on this a bit extra.
Based on Kotaku studies, Murderer’s Creed Odyssey will function completely new heroes. Not solely that, they’ll be female and male, and gamers will be capable of select which protagonist they play. It’s not clear whether or not or not Bayek and Aya will make a reappearance on this sport but when it’s a direct sequel, we’d anticipate to listen to about them in some type.
Having the ability to select between a male and a feminine protagonist would definitely swimsuit a Spartan setting since evidently ladies had much more freedom in historical Sparta in comparison with different Greek states of the time.
It’ll carry much more gameplay modifications than Origins
It’s additionally been reported by Kotaku that Odyssey will take the RPG modifications made in Origins even additional, aiming for extra Witcher-like gameplay. As we’ve stated above, it’s being stated that gamers can have a selection of two protagonists nevertheless it’s additionally steered that dialogue choices will come to the sequence for the very first time
What we need to see from Murderer’s Creed Odyssey
Extra naval battles
There are rumors that naval battles will make a return to Murderer’s Creed Odyssey and we’d like to see that occur. If the sport is ready in historical Greece then any type of naval warfare could be very totally different from what we noticed in Black Flag, however that might make it really feel way more recent.
Extra diversified missions
Murderer’s Creed Origins did a greater job of giving us causes to discover its open map than some other Murderer’s Creed sport because of its facet quests, however we’d like to see a bit extra selection within the subsequent launch. Whereas Origins made the hassle to introduce these quests with extra attention-grabbing and diversified characters, we’d additionally wish to see a bit extra selection within the mission design. Usually the facet quests in Origins had totally different tales behind them, however the resolution was certainly one of a small vary of issues, from invading an enemy camp to rescuing somebody.
We’ve heard that Ubisoft is attempting to be a bit extra Witcher-like with this launch and that implies we would simply get what we’re wishing for.
Murderer’s Creed Origins overhauled the sequence’ fight for the higher, however we’d wish to see it refined a bit extra for Odyssey. If the sport does revolve across the extremely militarized Spartans, we’re hoping we’ll see a fight type that’s a bit tighter and extra managed than the extra free actions we noticed in Origins.
