Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey has finally released to much anticipation. This is especially true because Assassin’s Creed: Origins was such a good game and a departure from the previous titles. It offered the player far more freedom than ever before, a huge Ancient Egyptian landscape to explore and mechanics that borrowed a lot from The Witcher 3 while keeping what the made the Assassin’s Creed games so appealing at the peak of their sales.
The biggest appeal for the series is it allows gamers to explore incredible historical recreations of different time periods. Since the series began fans have been hoping that that series would find a way to travel back to ancient times.
Origins fulfilled the hopes of the fans and even exceeded expectations with a story that showed gamers the beginnings of the Brotherhood and the Prot-Templars known as The Order of the Ancients. This time Odyssey takes players even further back in time by 400 years to show us the earliest connections between The Pieces of Eden and the First Civilization.
There is a lot of real history that connects Ancient Greece and Ancient Egypt over hundreds of years and the Assassin’s Creed series has found more ways to connect them to its own lore. Here we take a look at some of the events in the lore that link Odyssey and Origins through novels, comics, and its two biggest games yet.
