    This one looks like it's up my street but I've still not finished origins so will have to park it. Origins is ok but this one appealed to me more straight away. Just hope it's not as grindy, bloated and empty as origins. Straight away it looks like a more beautiful place.

    Went for the Gold edition in the end, sold some completed games which bought the price down to 25. Looking forward to it, nice Brucie bonus getting 3 days earlier as well. I think come the end of the month I will be balancing playing this and RDR2.

    @DUFFMAN5 Have you decided which character you're most likely to play as yet? The devs reckon it's about a 50/50 split as to which they choose.

    A lot of previews seem to suggest the female character has a superior voice performance.

    But Alexios is funnier and more sarcastic.

    This will be first AC game. Do I need to know any story about the others at all?

    @mangojoe Nope, it's set 100's of years before the Assassins and Templars were even formed.

    To be honest the story of the assassins is guff anyway, it basically boils down to the Templars want to use the artefacts left behind by the space wizards to control humanity and its destiny and the Assassins want to stop them.

    The modern/future stuff is a direct sequel to Origins, and that's the only part that draws the series together.
    Depending on how much you care you may want to play Origins first (it's good anyway, and will be much cheaper once this launches).

    Duff is flogging his origins for a tenner in the swapsies thread

    Better be quick Pacrifice might nab it. Although he'd probably find a tenner for about 50 hours gameplay a massive rip off.

    Does this still have the present day nonsense?

    Yeah, otherwise its a series of largely unconnected historical adventures. Its the animus stuff that connects the narratives.

    To be fair in origins you could get all that shit done in less than 20 minutes, as much as I hate it I don't feel it ruined the experience in any way.

    So how many of us will be playing "3 days early"
    Is it just the Gold and Ultimate edition that have the play early gimmick.

    The only other game I bought that had this feature was Gears 4. That was awesome. I started at 00.01 and had completed the campaign 15 hours later.
    I Do not see me doing the same with Ass Cred.
    :)

    I only bought origins in a sale as I was bored of creed. I loved it though and 100%'d it and all the dlc. However, I am waiting for a sale to get this even though it looks fantastic. Ubi psn sales come pretty fast.

    The present day stuff was thankfully tiny in origins so hopefully the same again.

    If only they could make a story within the Roman bits to connect everything....

    I'll be there 3 days early. Hopefully I can get a couple of hours in before I need to sleep, and yes, just Gold and Ultimate editions.

    Not sure Gold has that. At least it doesn't mention it on the PSN store.

    Oof watched WhatCulture's preview of the EGX build and it got a savage cunting, hope they fix it before release.

    It doesn't actually say "play 3 days early", but if you look at the listings on xbox.com, the gold and ultimate editions say available from 01/10 and the standard version says available from 04/10.

    Cdkeys have Xbox One codes for substantially less than the Microsoft Store.

    Playing Origins, I'd kind of like Ubisoft to try a fantasy RPG. Origins is an RPG already and Odyssey looks more so.

    Odyssey is being marketed as an RPG.

    According to an article on gamesindustry.biz, Kassandra is the games canonical hero.

    Will this be less repetitive than most other Ubisoft games, including Far Cry? I bought Far Cry 5 and thought it was brilliant at first but then ditched it half way through. That's the same cycle I've had with most Ubisoft games.

    I like the look of Odyssey. How does it compare?

    That's not the way they've been marketing the game, the cut scene trailers seem to focus on alexios, not saying it's not true just that if it is ubi seem to be shying away from it. Not an issue for me, picking Kassandra from the moment I saw her.
