Assassins Creed Odyssey is the latest major instalment in Ubisoft’s time-travelling, body-swapping action-adventure series. This time around, the game is set in Ancient Greece, set for release on October 5th, 2018 on PS4, Xbox One and PC. Here, we’ll take a look at the best and cheapest Assassin’s Creed Odyssey pre order prices around.
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey gives you the choice of playing as one of two characters – Kassandra or Alexios and offers players a new skill tree system to level up with, featuring “Hunter”, “Warrior” or “Assassin” paths. Naval combat also sees a return with this instalment, and you’ll get to explore the Aegean Sea in Hellenistic Era warships, and the conflict between Athens and Sparta is shown through a “War System.” which lets players change a faction’s influence over a region, which in turn will change the gameplay and story.
Assassins Creed Odyssey Pre Order Bonus
Pre orders from all retailers offer the same pre order bonus, which is an additional mission “The Blind King”, though not much is known about the actual content of this mission yet.
What we can give you details on though, is the various different packs available with certain pre orders. Here’s a bullet point list of what each pack gives you.
- Kronos Pack – 5 pieces of epic armour, 1 epic weapon, and 1 epic mount.
- Herald Of Dusk Pack – 5 rare pieces of armour, and 1 rare weapon
- Capricornus Naval Pack – 1 crew theme and 1 ship design
- Temporary Boosts to XP and in-game currency.
And last but not least, if you log into the Ubisoft website with a Ubisoft Club account, from now until 1ist of October, you can get a Spartan Starter Pack, which will give you Sidearm Xiphos, and 2 extra items yet to be announced.
Cheapest Assassin’s Creed Odyssey price on Xbox One and PS4
The next cheapest option from there – if you fancied yourself a little bit of extra content – would be the Amazon Exclusive Limited Edition. It nets you the Herald Of Dusk pack, which gives you 5 rare pieces of armour & 1 rare weapon for £49.99. That goes for both the PS4 and Xbox One versions.
If you’d prefer to have a mount to go exploring Ancient Greece with though, you can check out the Omega Edition from GAME, which will get you the Kronos pack instead, which includes 5 epic pieces of armour, 1 epic weapon & 1 epic mount for £54.99 on both PS4 and Xbox One.
