Assassin’s Creed Odyssey available on PC and Xbox Game Pass today

Ubisoft’s brilliant Assassin’s Creed Odyssey will be available via Xbox and PC Game Pass today, Microsoft has announced.

The reveal came during an exceptionally busy live stream of Xbox’s Tokyo Game Show, which also included Game Pass confirmations of the Ni No Kuni series and an Xbox release date for Deathloop.

Odyssey is Assassin’s Creed game set in ancient Greece and its deepest dive into the RPG genre. It’s a warm, pleasant, expansive experience – and one of the highlights of the entire series.

Last week, Ubisoft announced the future of Assassin’s Creed through its new Infinity platform – which is led by Ubisoft Quebec, the studio that led the development of Odyssey.

The first will be a feudal Japanese game from Ubisoft Quebec currently called Codename Red, where you play as a shinobi. Other projects under the Infinity banner will include a witchcraft-inspired mystery game from Ubisoft Montreal, a multiplayer project, and more.

I recently spoke with Ubisoft Quebec boss Marc-Alexis Coté about what to expect from Infinity – and Assassin’s Creed in general, as it hits its 15th anniversary milestone.
