    Don't know if anyone hasn't finished this game or cares to replay it but Odyssey just added a story creator mode where you can design and play your own missions. You can choose or create characters to interact with, set the dialogue, pick what actions must be taken, etc.

    Haven't tried to create one or played any that have been created by others yet. Just from browsing available stories, people are predictably creating stories to sex characters they wanted to in the game.

    I’m about 40 hours in. Middle of chapter 6 I believe. Currently at the Olympics and have 3 of the items needed for Pythagoras.

    This is my favorite Assassin’s Creed and likely a top 5 gaming experience for me. The whole fucking package is just perfect.

    Tough break for this game to have come out in a year with God of War, Spider-Man, Red Dead Redemption 2, and Monster Hunter World. It was definitely overshadowed if people only had time for 1 epic adventure.

    I need to pick it back up. RDR2 came out too soon afterwards

    Added a little bit more to my post to acknowledge the other amazing games of 2018.

    I think I put AC:O off to the side for 4 months but I’m so glad I picked it back up. I gave up on Origins after about 10 hours and I was bummed when I had the same initial feelings about this.

    Once you get off Kefalonia and realize the game isn’t going to force you to do all this optional stuff and go to every region like they’re just chore items, the game really takes off. And then you end up wanting to because they poured love into each of the regions.

    Same, Started AC then went to RDR2 then had to pick back up where I left off in AC. Game was great, really hope the get back to their assassin roots on the next game.

    So just as good or better than Origins? I loved Origins

    I personally liked Odyssey way more than Origins. The improved combat alone makes it the superior game imo.

    I would love to play the old Altair/Ezio games with this combat system.

    What did you like more about Origins?

    Honest question because I thought everything, story/combat/perk system/visuals, was better in Odyssey.

    Ehh, Kassandra>>> imo. Now that I think about it, I will concede that Origins had far better voice acting imo.

    The guy who did Alexios in Odyssey is just awful.

    I never played as Alexios but every scene with him was painful.

    I thought Origins was just ok. It didn't make me want to play Odyssey

    I thought Oirigins as a game was amazing. Bayek was great, all the quests were fun. The overall build of the environment was amazing to navigate through.

    I did think the overall story and the "origins" of the Assassins was a bit of a let down. But everything else made up for it.

    Kassandra just oozes personality. I don’t want to talk to anyone that chose to play as Alexios. Yikes.

    I think me making the mistake of playing as Alexios has hindered my experience but Bayek is still my favorite character in the series

    I need to replay as Kassandra

    If playing as Alexios and seeing Kassandra as the CoK’s secret weapon, I’m pretty sure I’d have actively tried to ensure their successful takeover of Athens.

    Just a few more cultists and one more relic to go. It’s been a very fun ride.
