The latest Assassin's Creed game to launch home consoles and PCs has been Assassin's Creed: Odyssey . The game is a departure from the traditional stealth assassin setup that defined the series in the seventh generation, but it seems that the descent has paid off quite well for Ubisoft, as the title was the best start of the series of this generation ,
According to IGN, Ubisoft has announced that Assassin's Creed: Odyssey has surpassed the three previous titles of the series, which came out during the eighth generation. These include Assassin's Creed: Origins, Assassin's Creed: Syndicate and Assassin's Creed: Unity .
Ubisoft does not reveal the actual numbers, but the game apparently started off much better patronage than Assassin's Creed: Unity which was the first-eighth-generation exclusive in the series. Unity had a lot of problems after the company switched to a different design architecture, causing a lot of performance issues and bugs that Ubisoft repaired more than six months after its release.
After Ubisoft Assassin's Creed: Syndicate starred with a brother and a sister duo as two playable assassins, they took up the series. The introduction of the double characters was well received by critics, but not so much by players. The sales of Syndicate faded compared to other games, forcing Ubisoft to cease the game series for a year, while Sony 2016's main feature was released.
Ubisoft then followed the film with Assassin's Creed: Origins which was a retelling of how the Brotherhood was founded in ancient Egypt. Origins was able to sell much better than expected and sell Syndicate significantly. However, it seems that Odyssey develops better than Origins and its two predecessors.
Although IGN brings a good point on selling the eighth generation, Black Flag is still one of Ubisoft's best-selling games. So, where exactly does it fit into the line-up as it's also a generational change? Technically, Ubisoft could only refer to exclusive releases of the eighth generation, in which case it's pretty obvious that Odyssey is the top of the crop. But compared to other very popular publications such as Assassin & # 39; s Creed II, Assassin & # 39; s Creed III and Assassin & # 39; s Creed IV: Black Flag it seems so Odyssey is still one (19659007) We will not know how well the series will develop next year, because Ubisoft will take a break in 2019 and remain for the time being Odyssey . I imagine that the company will have a number of DLC expansion packs after launch for players to keep them busy.
So far, the reviews for Odyssey have been overwhelmingly positive, with many reviewers enjoying the large open environments and the expansive role-playing mechanics. The return of the naval battles was just as welcome as the large selection of weapons. Moreover, this was one of the few times where the game did not start with any major bugs or mishaps controversy to stem the discussion about the game.
