Assassin's Creed Odyssey Lets You Fight Alongside a Past AC Protagonist

Assassin's Creed Odyssey Lets You Fight Alongside a Past AC Protagonist

Evie Frye makes her way to Ancient Greece.

If you picked up the Gold Edition of Assassin's Creed Odyssey, you've already sunk a few hours into Ubisoft's expansive adventure in Ancient Greece. One of the best parts of the game is improving your ship and building a crew of trusted lieutenants. Not only can you call your lieutenants on land for a distraction, they'll also join you when you board other ships on the high seas. And who better for a distraction than an Assassin?

Assassin's Creed Odyssey gives players the option to unlock Evie Frye, one of the protagonists of Assassin's Creed Syndicate, as a lieutenant. Does it make much narrative sense? No. Is it very cool? Yes.

You'll find Evie over in the Ubisoft Club. This is a meta-account that works across multiple Ubisoft titles and gives you credits for playing their games. You can then use these points to unlock new items and costumes. Evie is free to unlock, but you'll also have to obtain the Master Assassin account achievement, meaning you've gained 7,500 XP across any of the Assassin's Creed games. If you've played them before, you'll be fine. If you haven't, you'll be able to gain that amount in Odyssey itself.

Once unlocked, Evie comes equipped with a wicked spear and a few ship bonuses: 9% to javelin damage, 15% to fire javelin damage, and 18% to all damage while health is low. The Ubisoft Club also has other unlockables, like turning your entire crew into male or female Medjay from Origins.

There's no word on whether we'll see other Assassin's Creed characters as crew members. Legacy Outfits based on previous AC heroes are making a return and will be separate armor pieces within Odyssey.

Assassin's Creed Odyssey is available for all PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 players on October 5, 2018.

Third-person action-adventure games are his personal poison: Uncharted, Infamous, and Assassin's Creed just to name a few. If you see him around a convention, he's not hard to spot: Black guy, glasses, and a tie.
