How Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Pulls From Witcher, Breath Of The Wild, And Mass Effect



After spending time with Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, we chat about our experiences with Ubisoft’s latest open-world game, how it compares to last year’s Assassin’s Creed Origins, and how it’s been influenced by other games such as The Witcher 3 and Shadow of Mordor.

Will you be exploring Odyssey's Ancient Greece, or waiting for the next instalment in the series?

Shame they didn't steal the no micro transactions from Witcher 3!

Can someone please help me out and tell me what is that waist garment called Kassandra is wearing at 8:16? Looks so cool and would really like to know what it is!

Lucy! But where are Cam Robinson and Seb Ford? And Kevin Van Nord? And deer van nordl….. Miss em so much

JustA Body - 7 months ago

Combat like Witcher… Not even close. It's much more God of War. They are supposed to be professionals right? I bet they don't even know half of the deeper ability and gameplay systems that actually require talent and skill.

The exploring is kinda lacklustre. It takes a lot of aspects of breath of the wild, but lacks the insensitive, reward and puzzle solving that comes along with it in BotW

Witcher got stale with the previous games… I stopped buying them after Black Flag… I gave Origins a chance because they talked about the changes they made… Origins was the bes AC since the Ezio games IMO… It just seems they didnt know what to do with the modern day story after the whole Mayan end of the world shit in 2012… I bought the new game and it's good this far

AC Odyssey is awesome! I really enjoyed it for the first two hours.

Those New Game Nendoroids (Aoba + Hifumi) though.

I'm done with Asassins Creed. It died after Syndicate.

Aaron Kottke - 7 months ago

It’s like if the Witcher 3 was loaded with fremium economy microtransactions and xp boosts, so cool, wow you guys

Ali Gillani - 7 months ago

I don’t mind at all shifting to RPG and taking things from other games. I liked Origins, it was good and I am loving Odyssey so far. Having said that I still regard AC2 the best of the franchise but come on we all used to moan about those same mechanics. So we should all be little forgivable.

its one thing to steal ideas from other games and improve upon them… but another if u steal ideas and then implement them worse than the originals you stole from.

I found it's so funny that, so many people crying about how this is not ac, yet they cant do shit to affect ubisoft decision and cant change the fact that it recieved good review.

TJ gaming under the influence - 7 months ago

I like the style of RPG they’re going for. Good job Ubisoft

Soham Sen - 7 months ago

So she was the one who gave Syndicate a 9.0 and origins a 7.0. Guys. let's assassinate her!(This is a joke, not a death threat)

ThaITGuy Glitch - 7 months ago

Was listening to this in the background. Got to the part where they say "This has got to be my favourite assassin's creed game since syndicate".

Clearly not the game for me then. I'm done.

Winging It With Bleep - 7 months ago

WTF MAN UBISOFT STOP ADDING MICROTRANSACTIONS TO YOUR GAMES! ITS GREEDY! WTF! THE XP BOOSTER IS BULLSHIT YOU GUYS MADE THE GAME GRINDY AS HELL JUST TO GET AN EXTRAA 10 BUCKS OUT OF US SO THAT LEVELING FEELS NORMAL. FUCK! WHY ISNT THE MEDIA TALKING ABOUT THIS! STOP PRAISING THIS BS

Baryal Noor - 7 months ago

To be honest… the bold step that ubisoft took with AC Odyssey paid off … the story, the gameplay, the open world and the role play feature … my favorites in the series so far

Jamokai - 7 months ago

when you trade in the story for visuals

R KO - 7 months ago

Ok guys…remember to shit on Origins as much as possible while hyping Odyssey as the greatest game ever! Ready, GO!!!

alphaj9 - 7 months ago

This game is really fun and I’m still at the starting island. I can only imagine what’s to come. I hope it doesn’t fall through the cracks with such a stacked holiday season. 🤞🏾

What is better, the original and creative Witcher 3 or the game that stole every good aspect of it – Assassin's Creed Odyssey.

Ronald James - 7 months ago

How dare you compare this advertisement product to the Witcher ?
Are you really so stupid to think that a little thing like Microtransactions is something we have to learn to swallow ?
Even if this was the best game that was ever made, it still shouldn't get a higher rating then a 5 out of 10.
People have to buy an already expensive game only to find out that that they have to buy lots of stuff separately.
That can NEVER be a good product to buy.

WishWisky - 7 months ago

you guys should do 'how marvel's spider-man stole everything from batman arkham series and any other spider-man games' … it should be fun.

Ultimo D - 7 months ago

Terrible game. This is NOT Assassins Creed. It's closer to dynasty warriors than Assassins Creed. It's become a cookie cutter, micro transaction store front.

I stopped at "a really well written and well plotted story"

Craig Douglas - 7 months ago

Lol. Woman relates more to female character than make shocker.
