Whether you are a returning player or a complete new-comer, Assassin´s Creed Odyssey may confuse you due to the extra features that have been included. Released on 5th October this year, this game has a 95% approval rate from gamers so far. Those who have played previous versions of this game will quickly notice that the game has gotten bigger with more land to explore even more missions.
To streamline your gaming experience as you begin to play this game, here are a few starter tips for you.
Play the game in exploration mode
Granted, this will initially make the game harder, but you will reap the benefits with time. When starting the game, you are given a choice between guided mode and exploration mode. Guided mode is easier since you are given markers along the way to guide you to your mission. With exploration mode, you have to move around and look for clues that will guide you to your mission.
As you explore the land, you get a better understanding of the geography and later on, the game becomes much easier for you.
Synchronize all the viewpoints that you can
Those who have played other versions of the game are familiar with syncing the viewpoints. You simply have to climb to any location that seems to have a great vantage point and sync the view. Vantage point locations can include watchtowers, mountain peaks, and any other high point in the game.
When on these viewpoints, you can see the objectives around the location which you can choose to complete. However, the biggest advantage of syncing the viewpoints is using them as fast travel locations that can save you a lot of time. Given how big the game is, you will need as many viewpoints as possible to hasten the game.

Get yourself some assassin´s skills
As with most mission games, skills are really important. The three main skill categories in the game are hunter skills, warrior skills, and assassin skills. These skills will cost you some in-game resources but are worth every penny.
All of the skills in the game make you a better assassin by giving you multiple types of combat abilities. The most effective assassin skills are critical assassination, stealth master and shadow assassin. With these, you will be well on the path to completing the most challenging missions.
Focus on the story
Many gamers get distracted by the side stories and missions that are not part of the main game. While the side quests are interesting in their own right, the aim of the game is to advance the main story. Make sure that as you focus on the main storyline to avoid getting sidetracked.
If your excuse is that you want to explore the game a bit more, you will be pleased to know that these unexplored areas are usually revealed later in the game. If you still feel a bit adventurous, you can explore every nook and cranny later in the game.
Take up contract missions
These are not part of the storyline and are not exactly missions per se. They are one-off quests that can be found in the game. You do not have to go. Buy Assassin’s Creed Odyssey at Ubisoft Store today!
