Among the biggest game releases of the fall season has been Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. That’s true both in terms of its stature, coming as the latest game in a major franchise, and its sheer size-it’s a long game with a staggeringly large map. Despite having only released in October, Odyssey is among the games you’ll find on sale this Black Friday.
Despite still being a couple weeks away, the first Black Friday ads have been released. While there are many more to come, Target’s ad led the way and confirmed Odyssey will be discounted during Black Friday. It’ll be $35 for a physical copy of the game on both PS4 and Xbox One, a price we’ve since seen matched in the Walmart ad. However, the best price so far comes from Best Buy, where Odyssey will cost only $30.
The various digital game stores could also discount Odyssey, and some physical retailers may even offer the digital version, as we saw with Walmart last year. We don’t yet know if it will be discounted on PC, so stay tuned for more details.
Odyssey was well received upon its release, further building on the RPG shift the series took with 2017’s Origins. It allows you to play as a male or female protagonist as you choose between the siblings Alexios and Kassandra. The aforementioned large world map is comprised of many landmasses, but there’s also plenty of sea for some Black Flag-style naval action.
In our Assassin’s Creed Odyssey review, Alessandro Fillari wrote that the game’s «ambition is admirable, which is reflected in its rich attention to detail for the era and its approach to handling the multi-faceted narrative with strong protagonists at the lead, While its large-scale campaign-clocking in at over 50 hours-can occasionally be tiresome, and some features don’t quite make the impact they should, Odyssey makes great strides in its massive and dynamic world, and it’s a joy to venture out and leave your mark on its ever-changing setting.»
Ubisoft has plans for both free and paid DLC for Odyssey, as the company hopes to keep you playing long-term; there won’t be a new Assassin’s Creed game released in 2019.
Below you’ll find the complete list of Black Friday deals on Odyssey. It’s quite brief for now, but we’ll continue to update this as more ads are revealed.
