Assassin’s Creed Odyssey further develops the RPG-stylings of its predecessor. Not only is the game’s world much larger than ever before, but there’s a wealth of new mechanics and systems added to mix things up. A territory system has you aligning yourself with the competing powers of the Peloponnesian War to carve out the land. Dialogue choices give you more freedom to guide the direction of your journey in subtle yet meaningful ways. And this is all in addition to a slew of improvements that have been made to Origin’s pre-existing systems.
If you’re a returning Assassin’s Creed player or a newcomer entirely, much of the new features and mechanics may confuse you. To help you wrap your head over all the new systems in Odyssey, we’ve gathered 11 useful tips that should help you become the best spartan mercenary/proto-Assassin you can be!
Assassin’s Odyssey is out now for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. As an interesting aside, the game will also be available to play on Google Chrome thanks to a new test the search giant is conducting to measure the strength of its game streaming technology. However, Google will only be choosing a select few users from those who sign up via its official website.

GameSpot editor Alessandro Fillari said in his review: “While its large-scale campaign–clocking in at over 50 hours–can occasionally be tiresome, and some features don’t quite make the impact they should, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey makes great strides in its massive and dynamic world, and it’s a joy to venture out and leave your mark on its ever-changing setting.”
