Assassin's Creed Odyssey Has a New Exploration Mode That Encourages Investigation

Choose between Guided or Exploration mode.

Last year's Assassin's Creed Origins introduced us to the biggest open world so far in Ubisoft's historical franchise. The upcoming Assassin's Creed Odyssey looks set to be putting a slightly different twist on exploration, however.

Thanks to the IGN preview of Assassin's Creed Odyssey just below, we know players will have two gameplay options: Exploration mode, and Guided mode. The former system replaces traditional map markers with mere hints scattered around Ancient Greece for you to uncover, while quest characters won't always point you in the exact direction you're meant to go in order to complete their quest.

The Guided mode for Assassin's Creed Odyssey is more traditional. This mode sticks to the basics: quest objectives and map markers will automatically appear on your map, and it basically plays out exactly like exploration did in Assassin's Creed Origins.

These two modes certainly sound interesting, and provide much more flexibility for players looking to uncover secrets of Ancient Greece for themselves. Ubisoft's big next entry in Assassin's Creed franchise is set to release worldwide on October 5, and for everything else you need to know about the game, head over to our Assassin's Creed Odyssey guide.
