Assassin's Creed OdysseyÂ places more emphasis onÂ role-playingÂ elements than previous games in the series. The game will contain dialogue options, branching quests, and multiple endings.The player will be able to choose the gender of the main character, adopting the role of Alexios or Kassandra.The player will also have the ability to develop romantic relationships withÂ non-playable charactersÂ of both genders, regardless of which one they choose.The game features a notoriety system in which mercenaries will chase after the player if they commit crimes like killing or stealing from non-playable characters. Both Alexios and Kassandra start the game as a mercenary and a descendant of the Spartan kingÂ Leonidas I. They inherit his broken spear, which is forged into a blade to become a weapon that grants the player special abilities in combat. The game uses aÂ skill treesystem that allows the player to unlock new abilities.The three skill trees include "hunter", which improves player character's archery, "warrior" which puts emphasis on combat, and "assassin" which focuses onÂ stealth. This replaces the system used inÂ Origins, which granted the player a series of passive abilities. TheÂ hitboxÂ combat systemÂ introduced inÂ OriginsÂ returns and has been expanded upon to grant the player access to four different special skills when the ability bar fills up. These skills include calling a rain of arrows and a powerful kick to knock opponents off-balance,and are similar to the "Overpower" mechanic introduced inÂ OriginsÂ that let the player use a powerful finishing move in combat. The game also features a gear system in which each piece of armor the player wears has different statistics and provides a range of advantages.These can be equipped and upgraded individually. Assassin's Creed OdysseyÂ also features the return of naval combat, with the player having access toÂ Hellenistic-era warshipsÂ to explore theÂ Aegean Sea. The conflict between Athens and Sparta is represented through a "War System" which enables players to take contracts from mercenaries and participate in different large-scale battles against hostile factions. The war system can change a faction's influence over a region, which will alter both the gameplay and story.
