Assassin’s Creed Odyssey joins Xbox Game Pass today
Ubisoft’s game will be available for Game Pass subscribers on console and PC
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey will be made available with Xbox Game Pass today, Microsoft has confirmed.
The announcement was made on Thursday during Xbox’s Tokyo Game Show live stream.
The game will be available for Game Pass subscribers on console and PC.
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey released in October 2018 and was supported with a significant amount of DLC, including the Fate of Atlantis story expansion and a story creator mode enabling players to craft their own quests and share them with the community.
More recently, Ubisoft released Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and Assassin’s Creed Odyssey crossover story DLC.
Last year, the company added 60 FPS support to Assassin’s Creed Odyssey when played on Xbox Series X/S and PS5 via backwards compatibility.
Six upcoming Assassin’s Creed games were discussed during a Ubisoft product showcase last weekend.
The next entry in the series will be Assassin’s Creed Mirage. Set for release in 2023, it takes place in ninth-century Baghdad at the peak of its Golden Age and is described as a “special tribute to the first Assassin’s Creed”.
With gameplay focused on parkour, stealth and assassinations, Mirage marks a return to the action-adventure style of Assassin’s Creed games released prior to RPG-style series entries Origins, Odyssey and Valhalla.
The next flagship series entries after Mirage, codenamed Red and Hexe, will be released as part of the new Assassin’s Creed Infinity franchise hub.
Red, which is being made by Odyssey studio Ubisoft Quebec and has the same creative director, is set in feudal Japan.
It will be followed by Ubisoft Montreal’s Hexe, which reportedly revolves around witch trials during the latter stages of the Holy Roman Empire.
Ubisoft is also working on a standalone Assassin’s Creed multiplayer game and two mobile series entries.
