Its really worth playing! I just finished the main campaign and pretty near 100%'ed the base game and it is really quite excellent! I'm just starting the first Expansion DLC and it looks great and advances the story too!I still want to play Origins bad I mean I really want to pick it up but I kinda want the Steam version even though it's on sale at GMG this week the UPLAY version.
In Origins, this is done really well. Not just the skipping mechanic (which is a low skill tree ability) but time in general. As you said some quests actually require day or night and say so. However time affects everything. For instance, if you're going after a large military outpost (ie the 2 or especially 3 spear icon variety) going at night means that some guards will be sleeping in their tents and bunks - perhaps even officers! Guards will change shifts as time goes on, path/go on maneuvers, and they will also deal with the bodies of the dead by taking them out of one area to another to clean them/dispose of them etc. I can only hope they do at least this well if not better in OdysseyI always skip time in the game cause when the game gets dark it's dark you meditate and you can play during the day or during the night if the quest requires it.
Bitch be angry.
all the best AC games were based on a very likable hero (like Ezio)...so I'm guessing Odyssey's success will depend on how good Alexios/Kassandra areIt's been a while since AC won any GOTY. This is the year though. Origins was just the test drive ACOD is going full throttle.
Ugh... The skill tree looks like they've continued with the same slot machine-style UI as Origins. This and the fight mechanics were the only detractions from Origins IMO.
I hope then I can ask directions from every bystanding NPC. I don't think self navigation can work in a game, I mean you'd at least need VR to have a sense of direction in a game. I'm skeptical but not ruling it out.Exploration Mode announced.
Seems to disable quest markers, instead you're giving a location hint and you can use the eagle to find it.
Why AC3? Was one of the weaker ones in the series for me.Season Pass & Post Launch info.
The two story expansions are part of the season pass (paid DLC). Season Pass also includes AC3 + Liberation remaster.
Lost Tales and daily/weekly are part of the base game (free).
