View Full Version : No hidden blade really?!

Looks like a great game just not a great AC game. A broken spear instead of a hidden blade?! Clearly the Assasssin part of this game was an afterthought.:(

Whilst the Hidden Blade was invented in this century it doesn't appear to have made its way to Greece, that might even make up some form of the story.

Besides, the Spear is clearly a POE and will have some ramifications for the story elsewhere.

That would assume that the lore would add up from game to game which it doesn't. You just don't remove staples of the series. It really isn't an AC game until you put on a hood and hidden blade.

Yup, I know it's a little shallow but if they kept those two things I'd probably be much more inclined to like Odyssey even with the out of place Spartan context.

The fact that the hidden blade isn't in here actually gives me hope that they still care about preserving some of the integrity of the lore.

There will be multiple endings - that’s all we should know about the integrity of lore...

Was that actually confirmed? Good god if it was.

I’m really sorry... https://assassinscreed.ubisoft.com/game/en-us/odyssey/rpg/
“Your decisions shape the world around you with over 30 hours of choice dialogue and multiple game endings.”

There are more lore-related issues I described in the neighbor thread:

I don't understand why there are Assassins logos on the armour: https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steam/apps/812140/ss_c334fed07712111399ab1951eee432ec9ed46d28.1920x1 080.jpg?t=1528754692
We know from Origins that logo was created much later (~40 BCE) than the events of Odyssey (~400 BCE).

Also confused with multiple endings. How could it be? Can the Animus calculate possibilities now?

And again: the main character has the same eagle vision as Bayek. We know that only a few assassins had such connection with an eagle.
And now we get two more characters with such a rare gift. Coincidence?

Looks like this game has something wrong with lore...

Hood is still a thing. Would hope that the hidden blade is added at some point though.
