Assassin's Creed Odyssey's Creative Director discusses skill trees & favorite ways to play

Ubisoft showed up with a build of the game with a maxed out character so players could check out the game's progression.


The Assassin's Creed Odyssey team showed up at Gamescom 2018 with a build of the action-adventure that put a maxed out character in the hands of players. Shacknews got a chance to sit down with Creative Director Jonathan Durmont about the build, the game's skill tree, and a whole lot more.

The development team is putting a lot of chips on this new entry, especially so since there won't be a new Assassin's Creed game in 2018. Assassin's Creed Odyssey releases October 5, 2018, for PS4, Xbox One, and PC and is set in 431 BC Greece.
