A lot of people wanted an Assassin’s Creed Odyssey CGI trailer, but we got none. We got a cool new launch trailer, so there’s that.
Don’t gamers usually complain when you give them a CGI trailer? Well, in this case, since we already know a lot about Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, a cool scripted CGI trailer would be nice. It’s become a tradition by now for the AC games to have a CGI trailer, but the developers obviously don’t think so. The launch trailer for the game that came out recently wasn’t all that, well, exciting.
So, what is this launch trailer all about? It’s all about two things, choice and fate. There’s also this old blind man that just can’t stop being rude. He calls you a coward and says you’ll forever be stuck on this island. That isn’t a very smart idea considering that he’s blind and the player has a bladed weapon in his/her hand. At the end of his speech, Alexios and Kassandra both put a weapon under his throat. It seems like no one likes rude people.
In terms of footage, this trailer doesn’t have anything special. Combat was already shown before, so all these “THIS IS SPARTA” kicks off the cliffs and stabbing weren’t all that interesting. That doesn’t change the fact that we’re very excited about this title. Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is already being called the best Assassin’s Creed game yet. We will wait for the game to release on October 5th to judge it ourselves.
