The next episode of Behind The Odyssey, from Ubisoft Assassin’s Creed Odyssey video series, it’s all about combat customization and mechanics. All indications suggest that a good thing has improved, with new movements and new systems.
While the basics of combat are modeled on Origins, Odyssey’s fights are much more mobile and aggressive. Between that and the thirty new capabilities, the developers are really trying to raise the bar in terms of combat. Until now, it seems that they are succeeding. If nothing else, it seems like you can be pretty specific about the type of fight you can focus on.
I am fully on board with any system that gives up trust in the shields. Torture requires the kind of patience that I simply can not muster, so this aggressive concentration is perfect. Plus, there are plenty of stealth and remote options to use. Full Disclosure: I have hardly played at Origins, so I literally have no idea of the novelty of these features. Anyway, the fight in this Odyssey video is absolutely delicious. Assassin’s Creed Odyssey will be available on PS4, Xbox One and PC on October 5, 2018.
