Ubisoft is a gaming company that has a long history of giving out amazing deals. They're currently at it again with a weekend-only sale on some great games. One of those is <em>Assassin's Creed Odyssey<\/em>. Up until Monday, this incredible game is over 50% off. That brings the total down to $25.20. For one of the most popular games of 2018, that's an incredible deal. It's the standard edition, but when a deal like this is offered on the table, you take it.\r\n\r\nThis game is the 11th installment in one of the most successful series in video game history. This time around, the year is 431 BC during the Peloponnesian War. You take on the role of a mercenary with an important choice: Fight on the side of Athens or the Peloponnesian League led by Sparta. Talk about a huge decision on your hands.\r\n\r\nhttps:\/\/m.youtube.com\/watch?v=8_fvoOKpTC8\r\n\r\nThe game also takes place in modern times, which is pretty standard for these types of games. Your modern character is Layla Hassan, a figure first introduced in <em>Assassin's Creed Origins<\/em>.\r\n\r\nWhere <em>Odyssey<\/em> differs a lot from previous installments is its heavy emphasis on role-playing elements. You'll have so many ways to enhance your character in this game depending on what attributes you favor the most. There are many dialogue options, as well as branching quests. The decisions you make in this game shape the overall outcome of the story.\r\n\r\nAnytime a game takes this approach, you're more in tune with the story as every choice matters. When the game first starts off, you can choose between Alexios or Kassandra. Having a female option is great to see. It shows Ubisoft Quebec is interested in reaching a larger audience, where everyone can enjoy epic, historic experiences.\r\n\r\nIn terms of the quests, there are so many to look forward to. The ones attached to the main story are compelling, but even the side quests give you unique content to explore. You could honestly spend weeks completing them before venturing off into the main storyline. The open-world environment has never been better as well.\r\n\r\nSeeing the diversity of the architecture and the intricate details of the landscapes is a moving experience, to be honest. You would be hard-pressed to find a more beautiful game for this generation of consoles.\r\n\r\nIf you're open for an adventure and want to save big on a top-selling action-adventure game that everyone is raving about, check out <em>Assassin's Creed Odyssey<\/em> this weekend through the Ubisoft store.
