I hope that you are ready for a whole lot of new gameplay for Assassin’s Creed Odyssey as that is what we have gathered up here fresh from Gamescom. The event may be done and gone, but that does not mean that Ubisoft did not have a whole lot to show off out at the event in terms of the two protagonists and the gameplay demo that was out there for fans and media. In fact, the demo also showed off more of the end game content we will have to contend with when it comes to truly completing Assassin’s Creed Odyssey before all of the DLC starts to drop and fills our time until 2020 when the next one will most likely be dropping. Maybe we will have moved on from the PS4 and Xbox One by then and see where the franchise is going from their so we can all experience the same as we would on the PC.
Anyways, first up we have a new cinematic look at Alexios and Kassandra from the game. Both of whom have Spartan blood running in their veins and have been tasked with saving Greece from what is going on in the ultimate story of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. They are more or less the same footage just with the different character behind the camera. It does show us that no matter which one we go with the game will probably play out the same just with a few bits of dialog changed and different voice work behind it. At least that is how I am seeing based on all of this. Have a look and see if you can see something truly different here.

Another things that made a huge splash out at Gamescom for Assassin’s Creed Odyssey was the fact that Ubisoft showed off that we will be hunting down and killing Medusa in the game. They even have their own reason why she is still alive and there are other heroes out there who have claimed to kill her. It also builds into how we will face off some other monsters from Ancient Greece as it turns out that they are just humans that have been corrupted or altered by the first civilization tech that is out there and they have now become the guardians of the location. An interesting take on how these things could exist in the world without being an Animus glitch of sorts. Although I would love to see that come back so we can take on the Greek Gods as we did the Egyptian ones.
