A gameplay footage analysis revealed some fresh details about the additions in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey on Youtube. One gaming enthusiast took it to Reddit and converted the German explanation into English for us to easily understand. This helped us in extracting firsthand information about the Naval Combat in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey.
These additions in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey will add value to the sailing mechanics. Ubisoft has brought the same feature from Black Flag back into Assassin’s Creed Odyssey which allows the players to leave their ships unless they’re in between a battle.
Players can even sink ships now which would add more credibility to the in-game world, according to the Director of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey.
Destroying the ships would have extra benefits too because this feature is not offered just for the sake of plummeting ships. When you are not keen on entering a ship and decide to sink it instead, you can then proceed to dive in and collect treasures. The shipwreck would contain all the resources of that ship and players can gather those possessions to make them their own.
Furthermore, Ubisoft has attempted to give the ship-cruising controls a resemblance to other movement controls. However, the controls of all means of transportation might be quite alike but the ship that you’ll get in the early stages of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey would have a nearby island to switch easily to on foot controls from the sea.
Apart from familiarizing the controls, players would also have the ability to recruit people for their ships through a methodical scheme. If you turn up killing innocents, Mercenaries would chase you in the seas from end to end.
The game offers three original ships; the ranged attacking Biremes, the dominant but sluggish Triremes, and the Nimble Penteconters. Besides, grand ships will also come along the way which can be defeated for special rewards. They only appear in specific locations on the map.
Numerous upgrades would also be available for the ships, for instance, crew outfits which would determine the chanteys for the ship. Added functional upgrade features would rather be the same as in Black Flag.
Ultimately, the developers have decided to provide a variety of choices to the players of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. We can determine that from how the Dialogue Choices are big deciders for the narrative.
Although the Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is set in a fictional history it would surely bring the past to life with its gaming experience.
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is releasing on PS4, Xbox One, and PC this October.
