Assassin’s Creed Odyssey sailing: all the ship cosmetics, upgrading the Adrestia

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Lokris: how to complete the side quests

Lokris is home to a lot of salt. In fact, in the times of the Ancient Greeks, it was seen as the "third" power of the Ancient Greek world. However it frequently dominated by both Sparta and Athens and thus played very little part in the formation of history around that time period. This is translated into how Assassin's Creed Odyssey treats the location as…

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey cultists: all the Cult of Kosmos identities and locations

At a specific point in Assassin's Creed Odyssey, you'll come across a group that call themselves the Cult of Kosmos. They're nasty people whose collective goal is to bend the world to their whims by prolonging the Peloponnesian war, terrorising the local populace, and causing widespread chaos. Assassinating them all too soon becomes one of the main focuses of your odyssey, so in order to work…

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey best ending: which choices get the good ending

One of the more interesting new features to Assassin's Creed Odyssey are the meaningful choices that can affect the world around you.

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Xenia treasure hunts: where to find the five items

Shortly after discovering the rather secretive group in Assassin's Creed Odyssey, you'll encounter a giant, magnificently strong woman named Xenia. Able to throw grown men through doors as if throwing a pebble into water, this lass can grow particularly fond of you. She'll initially ask you for money for information either Alexios or Kassandra needs, but if you saved her brother in one of the…

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey engravings: all the Ainigmata Ostraka solutions, the best engravings

Engravings in Assassin's Creed Odyssey are attachments that you can apply to weapons and are earned in multiple different ways. You'll likely obtain most of them by increasing your level, or by completing key quests in the story. Yet the best ones that you can obtain take a lot more work on your part, usually by finding Ainigmata Ostraka and solving the riddles that they…

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey mercenaries: how to kill mercenaries, removing bounties

The bounty hunters and mercenaries in the newer Assassin's Creed games are more than just a regular enemy. They can turn up in the most inopportune moments, usually in the middle of a quest or looting a particular location, to relentlessly hunt you down. If left unchecked, they can put a spanner in the works, setting you back a fair bit if you should perish…

Steam Charts: Aquatic Craniate Edition

There are weeks when the Steam Charts surprise us! There are weeks when interesting new and old games reappear, pushing out the dreary regulars! And then mostly there are weeks like this one, where it's so depressingly bland that it starts raining outside the moment you glance at it. Not good rain, just bland drizzle.

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey presents a ‘softer’ version of slavery

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey attempts to address the historical nuance of a slave’s status through a series of quests. Its presentations are universally sympathetic. In some cases, they’re downright positive. Scheming cultists who mistreat or acquire slaves are exceptions, not the standard. It’s true that slavery in ancient Greece often operated differently than similar systems in the American South. Unfortunately, since Odyssey is a game about…

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey travelogue

Much like its predecessor, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey has snared me with its marvellous camera. With it, I’ve been exploring and snapping Greece, all the way from the Ionian Islands in the west to the Cyclades in the east. I know I should be worrying about wars and parents and magical spears, but that’s all ancillary to the scenes and vignettes playing out on the paved…

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey adds new story for free

This is the first of seven planned storybits, named 'The Lost Tales of Greece', coming as part of Ubisoft's free post-launch plans (paid expansions are coming too, obvs). Named 'The Show…

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey romance: how to seduce all the NPCs

Seducing NPCs in Assassin's Creed Odyssey is significantly easier than that of real life. This is largely thanks to the Ancient Greeks's obsession with pleasing the gods with fornication, though your playable character is an utterly charming person too, which helps. Sometimes it can take a little bit of extra work to seduce an NPC, and occasionally it can lead down a more hostile path. Several millennia…
