We're taking you to Athens 430 BCE

We're taking you to Athens 430 BCE

More Assassin's Creed Odyssey coverage with absolutely no spoilers in terms of story. The Xbox One X version has taken us to Athens, something we had to share with you in a 4K video focusing on the game's landscapes. Enjoy!
Update: A new video featuring more views of Athens and its surroundings has been added.
Update 2: Combat video added. We deactivated the HUD and we fought enemies whose level were above Kassandra's.

@Driftwood:

Hi, I hope you're better now.

AC:Odyssey looks great, hopefully Ubisoft can send you the PC version soon, I would like to know if it performs well at launch and see the game at 4k with max settings.

I'm recovering thanks.

As for the PC version, I don't think I will be able to run it in 4K without drops.

No problem. I'm just curious to see how gorgeous the game can look at the best possible settings. But I do understand since AC: Origins had some performance issues at launch as well, but the team fixed them in later patches.

I'm sure Ubisoft will do the same with AC: Odyssey, release as is first and optimize further with patches. Which to be fair with Ubisoft, almost all developers do it nowadays. And Assassin's Creed games are very big, even by open world standards.

Still looking forward to AC: Odyssey, just trying to finish Dragon Quest 11 before it launches, had stopped to finish Shadow of the Tomb Raider first. If you have some free time on December/January, I definitely recommend Dragon Quest 11 as chill out game - to maybe help with recovery or just relax, almost done with it and so far it's a 10 for me.

Hey, I have played for over 45 hours. But the game isn't very long, I would have certainly finished it by now if I didn't stop to look at every nook and cranny every opportunity I get and weren't playing with the Draconian setting to make enemies super strong - though the game is still relatively easy.

It takes around 60-65 hours if you do everything - including the post game stuff. I'm sure that if you just do the main story, it should take around 25-30 hours. The Side quests aren't important story wise and the rewards are mostly cosmetic and a few bonus stuff that can be absolutely ignored with no problem.

Just don't try to Platinum it, it's a very RNG based time sink if you try to do that, since some achievements are stupidly RNG based and therefore take a long time to get, like landing a specific poker hand out of 3,000 combinations! Fuck that.

About the game

    b0vril yea, I don't really know how emulation works. (1 Day ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite The CPU will probably have multiple compatibility layers, replicating each architecture. Most likely just for PS3 and 4. Any decent CPU within the last decade has the PSX covered. (1 Day ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @KORNdog: Probably an architecture thing, or something to do with the bios. Most emulation is brute forced. There's a good reason why the likes of PS3 are only now being efficiently emulated. (1 Day ago)
