Defy Your Fate in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey’s Latest Cinematic Trailer

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey‘s release is nearly upon us and Ubisoft has chosen to celebrate with another new trailer. Like many others, it’s brief, but it is both cinematic and features both Alexios and Kassandra in action.

Check out Assassin’s Creed Odyssey’s “Defy Fate” trailer below:

Not that it needs to do so, but this new look at the forthcoming release doesn’t reveal any fresh details. The emphasis on fate is intriguing, though. If the protagonist is “doomed to fail” in saving Greece, what’s the point? Apparently, the power of choice comes into play here. As a previous trailer suggested, choice may either lead to greatness or ruin.

Because choice rests at the heart of the Assassin’s Creed Odyssey experience, this entry in the series doesn’t resemble any of its forebears. Assassin’s Creed’s transformation into an RPG certainly alters much of what drew audiences to the series. However, according to its countless accolades, such a transition represents exactly what the franchise needed.

Evidently, there’s even more to love. Our AC Odyssey review, praised exploration and the narrative, both of which the series has struggled with mastering in previous entries. Could this be the best Assassin’s Creed yet? We’ll all get to decide soon enough.

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey launches on the PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One on October 5, 2018.
