Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Features a Flying Horse That Can’t Fly

Assassin's Creed Odyssey features a flying horse that isn't able to fly. No, it isn't a bug, it is just how it is. Your Pegasus can't take flight.

It is no secret that Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is based on Greek Mythology. It takes heavily from the Greek Mythos and turns into the nice little package. However, while most are accurate, some of the details are a little off. There is a horse in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey that’s suppose to fly, at least in the Greek Mythology he did.

Pegasus is often portrayed as a white horse in the Greek Mythology. Thanks to its wings he is able to fly. Born after Pegasus killed Medusa, Pegasus is one of the most well-known creatures. He served Zeus before being captured by a Greek Hero, Bellerophon. Pegasus helped Bellerophon defeat Chimera.

The horse was also featured in Disney’s Hercules animated film.

In Assassin’s Creed Odyssey players can head to the in-game store and purchase Pegasus armor set. The Pegasus armor set comes with a number of things including full body armor for your character. But most notable is comes with a Pegasus skin for your horse. It turns your horse into Pegasus, give it wings and more.

As soon as you see your horse with wings you get excited for flying it through Greece but you can not. It is an odd decision on Ubisoft’s part. Instead of making Pegasus a skin, why allow the player to unlock it as part of endgame and actually allow it to fly? Well, Ubisoft would need to explain why this is the case.

May an update in the future would allow Pegasus to actually fly over Greece. For now, Pegasus is only a skin you can pick up from the in-app store in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
