Assassin’s Creed Odyssey trailer shows off the “Power of Choice”

Ubifost released a new trailer of its next game in the Assassin’s Creed universe- Odyssey. The trailer is titled “Power of Choice” and showcases how player influences can affect the outcome of the game.

The trailer is a firsthand demo of how player choice plays a huge role in the game. Players can choose and customize everything from the character, dialogue choices, abilities, battle approaches, and even the armor style. If anything, this is the most open-ended Assassin’s Creed game to date. With the success of Origins, Odyssey takes a similar approach to player freedom and kicks it up a notch (or two).

Odyssey is scheduled for release for PS4, Xbox One, and PC on October 5th. Early access is available to those who purchase one of the special editions of the game, which can be pre-ordered right now from major retailers.

Here are some official selling points (taken from the Ubisoft product page):
