New Features in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey
In Assassin’s Creed Origins, your adrenaline bar —the yellow bar at the bottom of the screen— would continue to build until it was full enough that you could press L1 and R1 together to unleash a devastating (and usually) final blow. In Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, the use of this yellow bar is completely different.
Now, that bar is split into different segments. Each of these segments can be used to power a special attack or ability you have, such as the Spartan Kick. When you level up, you unlock ability points that can be used to unlock special attacks. After that, you assign one of these moves to a face button and next time you’re in battle, by pressing L1 and said face button, you’ll perform one of your many special attacks.
While Bayek’s adrenaline attack was cool, Kassandra and Alexios’ mercenary techniques really shine with the inclusion of moves like the Spartan Kick, the Bull Rush, and more.
