Such is the pervasiveness of Assassin’s Creed that even after last year’s thoughtful refresh, the series is all too easy to take for granted.

I played Assassin’s Creed Odyssey at E3 2018 and came away thinking, “yup, more Assassin’s Creed.” In retrospect, the game’s demo was really rather impressive, and certainly one of the more enjoyable hands-on experiences I had. So, I’m officially granting myself permission to get excited about the game. Now, if only there were some related products on the way to satiate my fan-boy appetite.


Hurrah! Ubisoft has announced a range of tie-in publications that will be released alongside Assassin’s Creed Odyssey in October.

First up is the official novelisation, which will be published by Penguin Random House. The novel will follow the main story from the game – hopefully excluding all the side quests – from the perspective of Kassandra, one of Odyssey‘s two lead character options. The book follows Kassandra’s escape from Sparta, her life as a mercenary in Kephallonia, and her attempt to reunite her family. The novel is written by Gordon Doherty, author of the Legionary series, and Strategos Trilogy.

Titan Books will also be releasing The Art of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, a full colour art book featuring concept  sketches, and fully rendered artwork depicting the game’s locations, weapons, costumes, and characters. The pretty pictures will be accompanied by commentary from Ubisoft artists and developers.

And finally, Prima Games will release the Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Official Collector’s Edition Guide. The comprehensive tome will detail the game’s weapons and equipment, and feature a 100% -completion walkthrough covering all locations and collectibles.


Assassin’s Creed Odyssey will be released October 5, 2018 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
