While the fans are still mulling over Assassin’s Creed Origins, they help but wonder what’s new in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. That is why we find them digging in on, every ounce of information that surfaces regarding this game, luckily Ubisoft has released the third episode of “behind the Odyssey”, in which they have shed light on the navel exploration of the game.
What will the navel exploration in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey be like? How will it play out? The experience and so much more. James Carnahan the technical lead said, as the name of the game suggests, the devs are modeling themselves on the voyage of Odysseus, which includes exploration of the Aegean sea.
When the devs said that they are redesigning the naval combat we had our doubts, however, now it appears to be that they really are working on it from the ground up.
According to Carnahan, the timing of the setting may not be historically accurate but they are trying to give the players, the same experience and for that reason, navel exploration is an important aspect.
Map of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is huge, the sea is seamless and in order to make it seem seamless, they had to work on the smaller details in the background as well as on ones in the front.
Like the waves on the shorelines or the huge waves in the open seas have a huge difference. Other details include various kinds of fishes when you go underwater, as well as the environment that surrounds you as you move.
Then we have the game designer Charles Benoit talk about the naval combat of the game. According to him, the naval combat in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is very engaging, fast-paced, more close ranged and more intense than ever before. As Benoit reads, mobility has a key role to play and that is why the ships, are now fast-paced.
That said, players can expect some unique encounters with the sharks as well as happily expect, some unique ships roaming around in the open seas.
Then we had the game director Scott Phillips, talk about upgrading the sips. Upgrading the arrows, the javelins, raming damage or how many lieutenants one can have on his ship, will really determine your capability. Talking about lieutenants, you can recruit lieutenants from the world. Be them an individual weak archer or the best mercenary, you can find.
Adding them will give your ship better armor, more weapons and better perks to your ship. Last but not the least, the sea shanties are there but the best ones, you will discover when you progress in the game.
It seems to be that Ubisoft is preparing this game with a right intention, however, there still are a few reservations. Some are still of the opinion that this game, is pretty much a ripoff based on all of its previous ancestors. To be honest, whenever you roll out a sequel on a yearly basis that is bound to happen.
