gamescom 2018: Myths, Legends, and Awesome Abilities in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey

The moment Ubisoft unveiled Assassin’s Creed Odyssey at E3 2018, our classically-trained lizard brains sharply focused on the mythological possibilities. To many of us, Ancient Greece doesn’t just mean shiny helmets, pointy spears, robed philosophers, and sunbaked cliffs overlooking the Aegean: it means monsters. Big ones. And lots of them.

A quick glance up at the clock revealed that a full 1:53 was left. Not good… The intensity of survival in the face of an increasingly growing and punishing wave of undead is what makes the upcoming four-player co-op multiplayer Daybreak Pack, featured in the upcoming post-launch content releasing on September 12 for State of Decay 2, an incredibly...
