The Best 5 Games to Look Forward to in October 2018
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey (Release Date: Oct. 5)
People were blown away by Assassin’s Creed Origins, so expectations are high for the next title in the storied franchise. Enter Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, an open world title set in Ancient Greece before the events that led to the founding of the Assassins.
In it, players take the role of Kassandra or Alexios, the sole survivors of an attack on their village that leads them on a journey of vengeance and discovery. Along the way, they’ll engage in all of the series’ trademark climbing, stealth missions, and close combat encounters. That isn’t all the game offers though; on top of the usual fare, Odyssey has brought together elements that are new and from past installments to further expand the scope of what you can do.
Naval travel and combat allow you to sail the seas in search of lost civilizations, dialogue choices allow you to craft your own narrative and work towards your own ending, and the new game plus mode keeps the game fresh with a chance to experience every possible outcome the title offers. It’s an entry that shouldn’t be missed, and for more proof, check out our full review.
