Yeah I haven't even touched Odyssey yet, even though I own it. I know I'm going to hate the level gating and RPG mechanics, but I've played everything else in the series so might as well commit.


Making mental note of pirate set
Yeah, the pirate set is amazing. Each armour piece provides bonus assassin damage and higher crit chances and the set bonus is a further boost to all assassin ability dmg. If you combine that with weapons that also boost assassin damage, the game actually plays a lot like the older games where almost everything that's roughly within your level can be 1 hit by sneak attacks. Only things resistant are bosses and special enemies.

Combined wtih rush assassination... oh boy. Unstoppable god. Or goddess, depending on who you pick.

You can acquire the armour pieces by taking down
cultist
ships after completing episode 3 in game. There's guides that tell you where exactly to look for them on the sea.

I'd be in for this. Absolutely hated the massive health enemies had in Odyssey. Made fights extremely tedious and was a major reason why I never bothered finishing Odyssey. More focus on other mechanics is a welcome change.

Weapon durability?

Why yes Ubi, I also felt these games needed one of the single worst mechanics to ever exist.

Otherwise it all sounds good on paper but after Odyssey and Origins I don't feel good about the likelihood of it all being an excuse to extend the massive grind these games now force you into.

It was even worse in Odyssey. At least Origins had level scaling turned off, so if you did a lot of sidequests you were always comfortably more powerful than your enemies.

Odyssey scaled enemies to a degree where i never felt like i got stronger. Not just in regards to assassinations, but also swordfights. Enemies were way too 'bullet spongy' even when using lvl 50(?) epic weapons vs. regular Athenean foot soldiers.
I agree that the scaling is off in Ody, but Origins issue with being able to one shot every enemy halfway through its hundred hour length was as bothersome.

They need to find a middle ground between the two

Nothing is stopping Ubisoft from showing the next-gen version without specifying platforms. Sony conference would only diminish AC reception because it will be overwhelmed by the PS5 showoff.
Agree to disagree. I think anyone interested in AC it wont matter because they will simply get the game on whichever platform they own at the time. Also, imagine the amount of coverage the PS5 reveal will get when it happens, now imagine all of those videos and articles also mentioning that Sony showed off the next gen version of the latest and biggest AC game ever etc.

Not hard to understand why a pub would want their game associated with the reveal.

I wonder where this game is set cause Scandinavia during that time would have had hardly anything we would call a town. Almost 0 urban areas. Maybe some trade spots here and there.

Hey OP, can you confirm the other leak saying that recruiting assassins like Brotherhood is back?

If so, this will be as excited as I’ve been for a new AC since maybe 2 or Brotherhood. Have played every one and liked them all, but the best thing I’ve ever done in the entire series is max out my guild and just hammer left bumper like four times and watch 8 dudes come out of bushes, off rooftops, from the hay in a wagon and just murder everyone. Best the series has ever been imo.

yum....the early medieval age. if the map info is true, im absolutely hyped for the inclusion of Kiev and eastern europe as I feel in the U.S, that part of the vikings is less known than the English, Western European part.

Please god some trading and etc about Northern European trade links....

- Up to 4 player drop in drop out co-op like Ghost Recon wildlands.
- Continues heavy RPG mechanics now including different classes and mild skill tree changes based on class. Player class can be changed by a specific character.
- Weapon durability does now come into play, forcing players to use their weapon pool more effectively and forced to manage a smaller inventory that can be upgraded
- Players now have a reputation system based on quests completed for people in cities, the town officials, clothing worn, crimes committed, etc. Some quests and story missions can only be completed after reaching a certain reputation with kingdoms.
After playing every single release of the franchise, yeah I think I'm finally done with AC games if the above is true.

What's the point of even keeping the same name? It's a new IP at this point.

Weapon durability is wack, rest sounds good enough, and...



Please don't listen to this man.
Hey now Odyssey is my favorite in the series, I even own the Art Book, but it doesn't fucking end!

I've now had it for over a year, and after 80 hours, I'm only 70 percent complete with the main quest. These games need to be leaner.

This is gonna be way bigger. Which is scary. But it's made by Montreal, and they proved themselves with Origins. What an amazing open world they made there.
Oh God no

Love the world design of Black Flag and Origins though. Those two are head and shoulders above Odyssey, which isn't varied enough, though I suppose that may be historically accurate.

Thank goodness I'll be playing on PC. I know a mod will come out that gets rid of weapon durability and I won't have any problems using it. Absolutely despise that mechanic in games.

Stuff sounds pretty good other than the durability BS. Hopefully it's a mostly lenient durability system at least.

The hidden blade being a 1 shot again actually has me more interested than anything else
My purchase is gonna have to come down to the visuals and art style because I actually like the premise

If you weren't tearing enemies apart at that level, you were doing something very wrong. I left scaling at full so that I was always fighting equal level enemies, and most one-on-one fights are over in seconds. It only gets hairy with several mercenaries.

If this is true it seems nice, just sucks that the map is so large. Was hoping for a more tight experience.

This is why I leave some side quests and additional content after beating the game, so if I'm burned I can just drop it, or if I'm left wanting more I have more content. I think I finished Odyssey around 50hs.

Biggest problem with Odyssey map was the long sea full of nothing, but Origins map was almost as big without sea and was so good IMO.

Did people actually like the co-op stuff from Unity? The whole point of the game is trying to make your way through an area without blowing your cover. Having 3 other people running around surely would break that. I’m fine if it’s still an option, but it seems like a way to introduce more live service stuff into a game that doesn’t need it.

If it's a massive map with MMO style side quests then no thanks, I'll pass. If you're going to emulate the Witcher then do it properly already. If there's no compelling narrative or characters it's all pointless to me.

Weapon durability needs to go the fuck away already. It's one of the worst gameplay mechanics ever put into a game. Guess I'll pick up the PC version if there is a way to remove it using cheat engine.
