Lets get to the point, shall we?

And then assasins creed odyssey is at present on summer sales and i am actually ownership the deluxe edition. I am actually pretty familiar with Ac game, my most favourite air-conditioning game is Syndicate even though thats the just ac game i have completed.

The question: do you lot guys recall i volition like assasins creed odyssey? Will it play similarly to Syndicate? Volition I sympathize the story without playing Origins?

Two things that i dont like from Ac game in full general way:
ane. Naval battle
2. Transport customization

Does odyssey accept naval boxing? If it does, is it but once thing or you will encounter them for the whole game?

(Btw it comes with ac3, at to the lowest degree if i dont like odyssey, i can play this 1. Just lets not count this yet)

Plays completely differently to Syndicate*, you don’t need to take played others for the story but it would assistance. Unfortunately at that place is send combat, it’s largely avoidable if you want it to exist, merely information technology’south at that place.

*It’south more than of an action game that requires dodging, parrying and the similar you’d expect from a third person action combat organisation.

Hell yep, the best open world game this gen (on PS4 at least)

Plays cypher similar Syndicate and you’ll accept to appoint in some naval battles. But they are easy.

Odessey does have Naval combat but information technology can exist ignored for the nearly part if I remember correctly, it’s not very involved at least. You shoot at the other ships until you can lath them kill them all.

It’southward a fantastic game withal and the naval combat didn’t actually sour the overall feel in my opinion. You should get it!



  • #5
If you don’t like ship parts, I’d settle with Origins Deluxe. There’s less padding, less naval combat, less roadblocks, while still offering an insane corporeality of content. And while information technology’s personal preference, to me Ancient Egypt is more heady than Ancient Greece. You can probably pick up the complete version of Origins for less, likewise.

There are naval battles and send traversal in Odyssey but apart from two moments in the master quest I don’t remember it being required. But if the mere presence of it offends you and so don’t become the game. It’south set up in Greece. You know, lots of islands.

There’s a lot of boating in Odyssey.

Cheque Origins it has like a couple of scripted ship missions but that’due south it

Information technology plays a lot differently from Syndicate and there is a lot of Sailing and Naval Battles. It’due south not as big a focus equally say Black Flag was, but it’s withal a relatively large part of the game and can technically be avoided if y’all are smart plenty in where you sail.


Starlatine


  • #9
There’s a lot of boating in Odyssey

Merely you can basically just speed through other ships all the time and avoid battling, which seems to be OPs problem. If he hates sailing in general then yeah, don’t get the archipelago game, become the desert one.

Odyssey does have naval battles, simply information technology’southward not as large of a focus in the game as it was in Black Flag. Actually the only time you lot’ll have to practice information technology is for a few select main story missions, and there’s also a branch of the Cultists where they’re on ships. Otherwise I played the game for lxxx hours and didn’t spend much of it in naval battles unless I needed to. You can avert combat more often than non if yous’re sailing to a new island. That said, you become a lot more than of the materials needed for upgrades and whatnot from cleaving ships than y’all do from whatever other source. Just something to keep in mind if you find yourself playing the game and brusk on the materials yous need for stuff.

I think if you’re coming from Syndicate, you’ll similar Odyssey. The gainsay is really a lot of fun and has a good variety of options in the skill tree and weapons you find in the world. Kassandra is a wonderful protagonist. The open globe is absolutely massive though to the point where it can be overwhelming more ofttimes than not, so just attempt and be prepared for that daze when you open the map up for the offset time. Every bit for getting the palatial edition, the Legacy of the First Blade DLC is decent, but the Atlantis DLC is fantastic and well worth it. Overall it’s a pretty enjoyable game and worth playing IMO.

I idea the naval battles were underdeveloped in Odyssey, it’s a nifty game though. I think in that location’south like 3 naval missions in the chief story, that you need to level upward the ship for.

my about favourite air-conditioning game is Syndicate

The practiced news is information technology’due south the aforementioned team behind Syndicate, and like Syndicate they focused a lot more than on making the game feel “fun” over story and world cohesion. So you lot accept gameplay elements like the superman jump letting you fall from whatsoever summit without dying, and magic abilities like teleportation assassinations. Information technology feels amazing. Definitely a great AC if you like fun gameplay like that and won’t exist too bothered by historical inaccuracies in globe design (the weakest part of Odyssey imo).

Naval battles are present, merely mostly optional. You lot tin can spend the vast majority of your time on land, and it’s fairly like shooting fish in a barrel to just sail away from any battles you don’t want to engage in when you sail to a new island. At that place is the odd mandatory naval battle during the story, but they are few and far between.

Odyssey is meliorate than near of the open world games I’ve played this gen including Horizon Zero Dawn and currently Ghost of Tsushima.

Later whats happened at ubisoft I have to answer every question if someone should buy one of their games with a no. You are of class gratis to buy it anyway, but it should be something people should at least consider if they desire to buy an Ubisoft Game.

Gold edition comes with AC3 not Deluxe

The Naval component is in no manner an crucial part of this game. Information technology felt more like an afterthought. A way to go from island to island that made sense in earth. But other than that, I don’t think information technology’s going to take what you are looking for.


-Tetsuo-


  • #17
In that location is a lot of sailing in the game, but you can skip most send combat. If you do become it I highly recommend playing in exploration mode.


Sheepinator

With Ubi games, never go the Deluxe Edition. It’s just the game plus some useless over-priced cosmetics which you’ll exist swimming in anyway. Get the Gold Edition, which comes with the Season Pass and AC3.

Take you lot played the naval combat in Air-conditioning before? Or do you simply assume y’all won’t like it? Personally, I beloved information technology. And in that location are ship upgrades but information technology’southward a stretch to call it customization, basically whenever you have plenty resources become into the primary carte du jour and spend it on offense or defense force. Anyway, y’all tin can probably avert almost send gainsay if you’re not interested. Sailing is a big part of the game though. There are a lot of islands to discover, shipwrecks to reach, etc.

It doesn’t play anything similar Syndicate. The combat is much more dynamic, and you’ll exist leveling upwardly and collecting new gear and weapons to equip constantly. It’due south as well far more focused on clearing outposts (apply stealth or not, whatever yous desire) instead of everything being in a big dumbo urban center.

Fwiw, I love the game. Got 100%. Information technology’due south definitely repetitive, but I loved the core loop and so that was OK.

Lets get to the point, shall we?

So assasins creed odyssey is now on summer sales and i am actually buying the deluxe edition. I am actually pretty familiar with Ac game, my most favourite ac game is Syndicate fifty-fifty though thats the only air-conditioning game i have completed.

The question: practice y’all guys call back i volition like assasins creed odyssey? Will it play similarly to Syndicate? Volition I understand the story without playing Origins?

Two things that i dont like from AC game in full general fashion:
i. Naval battle
2. Send customization

Does odyssey take naval battle? If it does, is it just one time matter or you volition encounter them for the whole game?

(Btw it comes with ac3, at least if i dont like odyssey, i tin can play this one. Simply lets not count this even so)

If yous don’t mind doing tiresome sidestuff and don’t mind not being able to go “Master Story” merely, it’due south a fun game. The level gating is hideous though and the Sponge enemies in this game are simply ridicolous.

All in all later playing Ghost and The Witcher, i could never go back to AC:O. If yous don’t mind whatsoever of this, you’ll accept fun.

Bosses have far more than hp certain but no shit

  • #22
I just finished Origins, and yep yous can expect a vastly different (but better) combat. Right now sharing the same worry though, but bought Odyssey and I also hate the naval battles and the weight of moving those boats, so yeah, I hope everything goes well lol

Here we go with the sponge enemies BS again

How many times practice I have to post a gif of me one shotting (with hunter damage.not even assassin) even gold enemies at max level

Bosses take far more than hp sure simply no shit

Exactly.

“Information technology’s an RPG and I didn’t level up and it got hard.” Well, duh. I was e’er vastly over-leveled during the game because I was enjoying information technology and doing all the side quests likewise. You probably only need to do a small fraction of those, and if yous dislike that content and so yous probably dislike the game anyway, then why keep going?

The game also gives level scaling options. I recommend going to -ii and also bumping upwardly the difficulty to Difficult. That ways the regular enemies are still adequately piece of cake to impale and you get some of the power benefits of leveling up, and the mercenaries and bosses are still a decent challenge.

Last week I had a bounty on a merc, he must have been max level, playing on Difficult, and I killed him in one stealth hitting.

Syndicate and Odyssey are my two favorite Assassins Creed games. Far above all others.

On what platform? I inquire this cus i went and bought Origins on Pc (ubi shop) and there’due south a bug in the game causing it to hangs for v-10 sec. at times… the sound keeps on playing through it, i estimate it’southward a video bug. I have no performance bug abreast this and Ubi is declining hard on client support. I’thou pissed… sorry for the derail.



  • #26
Get the Gilt Edition, which comes with the Flavour Pass and AC3.

Oh sorry i remember i meant the gold edition the one with flavor pass and ac3



  • #27
There’s a lot of canoeing in Odyssey.

Check Origins it has like a couple of scripted send missions only that’south it

Oh i forgot to elaborate, the reason i dont like blackness flag’south naval battle is that i find the command annoying especially when i am trying to navigate the send to get information technology aligned with enemies’. The navigation is then dull and lets not talk about how the waves are kinda in the fashion


ZeroX


  • #28
I got the Gold Edition of Odyssey, I platinumed AC3 and didn’t touch Odyssey. imo the right way to play



  • #29
Withy Valhalla right around the corner yous wanna burn yourself on this one? Unless you lot dont have any plans to purchase Valhalla anytime before long, and then sure go for the game.

Although you will demand to do some ship gainsay if y’all desire to cease upwardly a certain questline of mystery and intrigue (trying not to spoil)

I didn’t similar the sailing in the previous games either, and information technology hasn’t really bothered me in this one, especially one time I had a bunch a materials to but buff upward the ship all at once.

It’s as well been a super small portion of the lxxx hours I’ve spent so far with the game.

Odyssey is a ton of fun, I’d highly recommend information technology. Just don’t try to do everything or you lot’ll fire yourself out.


Mecha


  • #34
I say hell yep, the DLC is one of the best out in that location (Fate of Atlantis) so consider the Gold Edition if you can find a deal.



  • #35
Odyssey is basically a Witcher-like. All the blueprint elements of witcher but without any of the story. I enjoyed it as a game merely honestly it never felt like a meaningful feel.


Wet Jimmy


  • #36
I simply wrapped up ~125 hours in AC Odyssey, including all DLC and finished at level 98. Loved it.

Regarding sailing and transport-to-send combat;

Information technology’s pretty much been stated here – there is mandatory sailing, you lot need to canvas to consummate some quests and of grade to travel between islands, yet it’due south certainly not a large focus of the game and you tin can minimise the time spent at sea it if it doesn’t float your boat. Once my ship was updated a reasonable corporeality, I quite enjoyed setting enemy vessels on fire and ramming right through them, but your mileage will vary 🙂


Chumunga64


  • #37
it’south a really fun “fast food” game. it’due south like a variety show

I had tons of fun (mostly because I don’t play these games all the time and then I don’t go burn out) and the discovery tour is amazing in terms of learning


The_R3medy


  • #38
Heck aye mate, go for information technology. Lovely game that’south a great way to spend 80+ hours.


KrillinLikeAVillan


  • #39
It plays style better than syndicate, the gainsay is fun and has some actually wild abilities, the ship gainsay is proficient but generally optional, you can only avoid other ships if you experience like information technology, yous will be forced to canvass between islands but once you the unlock synchronization points you are gratis to quick travel between them at will.

Overall i had a great time with information technology, oh and if you are going to play information technology play every bit Kassandra.

Oh i forgot to elaborate, the reason i dont like blackness flag’s naval battle is that i find the control annoying especially when i am trying to navigate the ship to get it aligned with enemies’. The navigation is and so slow and lets non talk nigh how the waves are kinda in the way

The ships are a lot snappier in odyssey and the aiming is easier.

I got the Gold Edition of Odyssey, I platinumed AC3 and didn’t touch Odyssey. imo the right way to play

Naw son, you did a bad thing.

Odyssey was a not bad game. The just issue was that in the end, there was too much game. By the time I finished the game and all the DLC, and had 100% trophy completion beyond everything, I was about 200 hours in and far across ready for it to all be over. And go on in mind this is with the original release spacing of both DLC packs coming out in three parts (each) a couple months autonomously. So it’s not like I was playing the game constantly from the time the game released to when the final DLC pack came out. To this day I’grand still burnt out to the extent I don’t fifty-fifty wanna recall about Ragnarok.



  • #41
I definitely recommend it. It’s chop-chop condign my favorite game in the series after spending 30 something hours with it. Notwithstanding nowhere virtually finished, of course, and so that could change if I get tired of information technology, but aye.

I did spend quite a bit of time sailing and engaging in naval combat, only well-nigh of information technology has indeed been optional stuff, so it’s probably very easy to ignore. I should say, though, depending on how into the game yous go, you volition almost likely exist a petty upset about some of the things y’all’d be missing by completely ignoring it. They’re non besides numerous, though, it’southward just i fight that’southward office of a larger questline that I personally really want to see through, even though information technology’s not mandatory.

Though I suppose you lot could just leave it for much afterwards and use your late game upgrades to trivialize information technology entirely.

I’yard playing on Nightmare, in Exploration mode without the compass, and I’yard having a blast. If it continues to be this good all the style through, information technology might end up bein my favorite “busy open globe”. I say this because I’thou unremarkably much more into open world games that people would telephone call “empty”, like Shadow of the Colossus, Mafia Two, Final Fantasy 15 and maybe Dragon’south Dogma? Not sure if people telephone call the last one empty, merely it kind of fits. Odyssey has a fuckton of content, it’south non empty past any means and doesn’t fit with what I usually look for in open worlds, just I’1000 finding the exporation and combat extremely rewarding in information technology.

The story hasn’t been particularly adept so far, just it’south fun plenty to make me desire to meet what’s going to happen next, it’s a decent driving force behind a yard adventure, and it’due south all I demand for this title. It really does feel similar an RPG, through and through. From how deeply your build affects combat, to less tangible things like this feel of an adventure that volition take yous to all sorts of incredible places starting from a very uncomplicated offset. It actually captured me in a style I absolutely did not wait going in. Only bought it because the Gilded Edition was extremely cheap during an Epic Games Store sale, only started playing because I realized that most of my Uplay library was either given abroad for free or stuff I paid for only eventually became free, and it’south slap-up.

Information technology does infringe a lot from The Witcher 3 in structure, but for my coin it’s a far better game. I practice understand that this is probable the virtually unpopular stance possible on Era, but I’m just loving it.

What really sucks is the recent bullshit around Ubisoft, couldn’t have picked a worse fourth dimension to gush about their products, I wouldn’t really feel comfy doing an LTTP or something similar that at the moment.

Odyssey was a great game. The simply issue was that in the end, there was as well much game. Past the time I finished the game and all the DLC, and had 100% trophy completion across everything, I was about 200 hours in and far beyond ready for it to all be over. And go on in heed this is with the original release spacing of both DLC packs coming out in 3 parts (each) a couple months autonomously. So it’s non like I was playing the game constantly from the time the game released to when the terminal DLC pack came out. To this day I’thou still burnt out to the extent I don’t even wanna think about Ragnarok.

Yeah, that I can definitely imagine. Didn’t play Origins and I don’t fifty-fifty consider information technology. For these games, you kind of have to pick your favorite setting of the bunch, pla information technology then look for the next formula. If by the fourth dimension I finish Odyssey and its DLC I still want more of this kind of gameplay feel, I’thousand more inclined to pick upwards Ghost of Tsushima than going for another Assassin’due south Creed.

I’m mostly a big fan of open-world games. Say what you will about the cookie-cutter side activities of games like Far Weep and Horizon: Nil Dawn, but I commonly have fun with them simply fine. I did enjoy Air conditioning: Origins, as I’thou a large fan of Egyptian history and mythology. And they did some really cracking things with some of the locations in the DLC. I think they just got a bit overambitious with how much larger they made Odyssey than Origins.

I’m generally a big fan of open-world games. Say what you volition about the cookie-cutter side activities of games like Far Weep and Horizon: Zero Dawn, but I ordinarily have fun with them just fine. I did relish AC: Origins, as I’m a big fan of Egyptian history and mythology. And they did some actually slap-up things with some of the locations in the DLC. I think they just got a bit overambitious with how much larger they made Odyssey than Origins.

Well, it is good to know that I’m starting with the biggest one, then. If I still crave for more AssCreed, I’ll at to the lowest degree know it won’t accept me as many hours.

Yeah, I loved Horizon besides. Couldn’t really savor Far Cry 3 that much, merely maybe I should try ane of the newer ones. I actually detect a lot of the side stuff pretty well designed in this game, to be honest. They may not have incredible stories attached to them, but I’m a lot more than impressed by some of the level and encounter blueprint you get from doing side stuff in AC Odyssey and Horizon than almost anything in Witcher 3. And that game has a much larger enemy count than Odyssey, but the combat still manages to experience much less varied equally a whole. Horizon is stellar in enemy variety, though.


Freezasaurus


  • #45

I say hell yep, the DLC is 1 of the best out at that place (Fate of Atlantis) so consider the Gold Edition if you tin can find a bargain.

Yes. i actually meant the gilt edition, not the deluxe one. The regular version is at xx while gold 1 is 30. So i go for 30



  • #47
Odyssey is bully. You lot get to run effectually as a bisexual Greek superhero.

Information technology’s the beginning game in the series with combat that’s actually fun. It plays more like an action RPG than an AC game.

At that place is a lot of ship stuff, but well-nigh of information technology is optional (you lot’ll demand it to get from island to island, simply there’south very few forced naval battles). It’southward streamlined plenty that it’s not complicated. It’due south also but part of the gameplay (at that place’due south no separate naval missions or anything you have to struggle with).

You practice upgrade the ship, but it’s just a carte screen where y’all trade generic resources (that you find everywhere) for upgrades. You don’t have to pay any attention to it if y’all don’t desire to, though.

The game is then large it’due south stupid. You’re non going to want to attempt to articulate everything. Information technology’s merely too much. Feel gratuitous to ignore parts of the map (like, at least half of information technology).


Mecha


  • #48
Yeah. i actually meant the gilded edition, not the deluxe one. The regular version is at xx while gold one is 30. So i go for xxx

Yeah I would recommend information technology for the DLC solitary, it’s one of the best I have played. As some has stated in this thread just acquire to ignore some side activities, endeavor them and those you lot don’t enjoy skip, information technology ain’t necessary to complete them at all.


ResetGreyWolf


  • #49
It’due south completely different from Syndicate, merely yes you don’t need to play Origins to sympathize to play information technology.
