Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Devs Discuss Ancient Greece in “Behind the Odyssey”

Ubisoft uploaded “Ancient Greece”, the latest episode in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey‘s
“Behind the Odyssey” web-series. This week’s episode, the developers opened up about the “historically rich setting of Ancient Greece” and the relationship between the world and player.

Set in 431 BC, developers has the game set in the middle of the Peloponnesian War between Sparta and Athens who were the superpowers at the time. Peloponnesian War took place in the 5th century, a crucial moment in history for civilizations, marked by Ancient Greek historian Thucydides.

For an Assassin’s Creed game, this time period was deemed perfect because of conflict between of democracy and the tyranny and oligarchy, tradition and modernity, and religion and science.

Recreating Ancient Greece proved to be a challenge for the developers. Some cities lost most to all specific data. Mykonos was one of the cities that has no data remaining.

Developers noted the Greeks used “chaos” to build their cities because there was no urban planning like today’s societies have. The developers embraced the same chaos as the Greek when they were recreating the cities.

Mythology was important in Ancient Greece. It tied in every part of their lives: “their society, heir social behavior, their belief, their religious traditions”. Mythology was seen in the intricate details of their temples, and at the time, it was used as a political propaganda.

To bring historical characters to the game such as philosophers and heroes of Ancient Greeks, myths, and legends, developers have to look at historical documents, legends, myths, stories, what they represent, and the people they associate with.

For Socrates, the developers were fortunate to rely on Plato’s accounts. They were able to learn a lot from it about who Socrates was and how he annoyed people with his questions.

“Behind the Odyssey” is a web-series where Ubisoft developers shared features and elements fans will see in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey.  “Ancient Greece” is the fourth episode. Previous, Ubisoft has released videos on Naval & Exploration, Combat Customization, and RPG Mechanics. Also, Ubisoft has released a trailer featuring Ancient Athens.

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is launching worldwide on October 5 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

No New Assassin’s Creed Title or Spin-Off For 2019

Ubisoft revealed at Gamescom 2018 that there will no new Assassin’s Creed title or spin-off in 2019, Gamespot reported.

CEO Yves Guillemot cleared up why Ubisoft have no new Assassin’s Creed title to release in 2019, after Assassin’s Creed Origins in 2017 and the latest title, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, this coming October.

“On Assassin’s, we had a game [in 2018] and we have one this year, but we are not going to have a full-fledged Assassin’s next year,” said Guillemot. “It’s just because the team were working separately, so we have two games now, one year after the other. But next year you’re not going to have a fully fledged one.”

Guillemot went on to confirmed that no spin-off or smaller title for the Assassin’s Creed series would release in 2019.

“What you’ll have is lots of content coming on [Assassin’s Creed Odyssey]. The team really want to give, on a regular basis, some new possibilities for play, so when you get [Odyssey] this year, you’re going to get in for a couple of years, actually.”

This isn’t the first time the Assassin’s Creed series took a break from the yearly launch schedule. Ubisoft took a break between Assassin’s Creed Syndicate in 2015 and Origins in 2017 (however, spin-off Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India and Russia was released in 2016).

Guillemot spoke the breaks are “ultimately worth it” for both the fan community and the development teams.

“[The time] gave the team the possibility to really bring what they wanted to. The community has been responding very well to it and when I see what we are bringing with Odyssey I know that the community that got back in with Origins will be amazed.”

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is the latest entry in the series to come to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on October 5th.
