Assassin's Creed Odyssey Trailers Explore History and Myth

By Sam Quirke,
Assassin's Creed Odyssey seems determined to find a new balance between the series' historical and fantastical elements, as represented in the two latest videos to be delivered by Ubisoft. The first of these featurettes looks closely at the historical influences on the game, from real-life political figures given a fictional counterpart to the tricky job of emulating Ancient Greece's haphazard approach to town planning.

It's not all about detailed historical accuracy however. With its own fantastical internal mythology thanks to the First Civilization, Assassin's Creed is well placed to make the most of the myths of Ancient Greece. In this next video we see how the player can take on the legendary Medusa herself.

Assassin's Creed Odyssey will arrive on October 5th.
