The Assassin’s Creed games have been instrumental for the industry as a whole. It’s one of the longest-running series, and out of all of the installments that have come out, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey has been one of the best. It features one of the biggest open sandboxes in this franchise’s history.

The game is currently one year old and to celebrate this launch anniversary, Ubisoft is holding a special 5-day event. It’s including a lot of great things for players of this amazing action-adventure game. For example, every day, players will be able to defeat a new ship or mercenary. Doing so will net you some pretty cool achievements before the next Assassin’s Creed comes out on next-gen consoles.

When you take out these daily mercenaries, you’ll earn Orichalcum. It can be spent in Sargon’s shop for all sorts of items, from costumes to special abilities. Ubisoft is keen on giving their maximum effort in terms of updates, and this latest event should be a blast while it lasts.

The five-day event is just another reason to check out this vast game if you haven’t already. The setting is one of the best in this storied franchise. It takes place during the Peloponnesian War, which pits Athens against Sparta. Finally, you can experience this intense rivalry in epic fashion.

You get to play as a male and female and fight for both sides, all the while discovering the malicious intentions of a secret cult. Conspiracies are a common theme for these games, so it’s only right that this game would have one as well.

Where Odyssey really shines above the rest that came before is its open-world design. There are so many areas to explore, with each one having a distinct personality. The game is absolutely gorgeous and is the game to play if you have an advanced modern console with 4K capabilities.

Keeping the well-rounded theme going is the gameplay. As you progress in the story, you’ll acquire new skills that affect the way you interact with enemies. The game even has a naval combat system, which is perfect if you’ve ever wanted to take combat to the open seas.

Overall, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is one of the best games of this generation. The fact that Ubisoft continues to support it with updates shows how popular it is amongst the community. Who knows what Ubisoft will come up with next?
