Assassin’s Creed Odyssey: How To Complete A Conquest Battle

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is here, and brings with it a variety of new features beyond its setting of Classical Greece. The game’s open world is extremely deep, with a huge amount of side content to keep gamers interested beyond the core plot.

Chief among these content additions is the mechanic of Conquest Battles. Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is set during the Peloponnesian War, and as such large chunks of the map are under the control of either Athens or Sparta. The player is then able to stealthily undermine these regions, eventually then allowing the opposing force to take control, or alternatively can choose to defend against the invading army.

This is a fun and fulfilling distraction (at least more so than some of the other moments in the game), but it’s one that takes a bit of planning to really pull it off. After all, it’s not so simple to wrench control of a heavily fortified region without doing a bit of work before a blade is even unsheathed. Here’s a quick look at how to make the most of the Conquest Battle system.

For starters, choose a good area of the game’s map – one that matches the player’s level – and identify the areas of the region there the current leadership can be weakened. This would be killing off Captains and Polemarchs, destroying war supplies, stealing key chests and killing of Leaders, who are located at the Leader House in the first instance. The aim of this is to get the Nation’s Power Meter as low as possible.

To make things easy, don’t go straight for the Leader. Instead, focus on undermining the area first. The smartest things to go after are supply crates and killing standard Captains, and doing so can carefully whittle down that Power Meter to a manageable level.

For a big hit, however, go after the forts. It takes a fair amount of patience as these forts are heavily guarded, but look for secret entrances and slowly take out the soldiers found within. The end goal is to then defeat the Polemarch, although these warriors are more difficult than even the Captains.

When the Power Meter is low enough, it’s time to go after the Leader. At a certain point, the Leader will become vulnerable and will be forced to flee their Leader House, leaving them outside with a smaller band of bodyguards. This makes it much simpler to take them out, and significantly damages the Power Meter.

Once the time is right, go to the appropriate Conquest Battle marker on the map – there will be one for defending and one for attacking with the invading force. Forming part of the attacking army is a more difficult fight, but with it comes much greater rewards. Once the battle begins, don’t get too dogged down in the ordinary soldiers, as satisfying as it is. Instead, focus on the Captains to watch the enemy’s strength drop considerably.

Be careful, however, and make good use of any abilities. It’s important to be particularly aware of the surroundings and of any other soldiers who break off to attack the assassin – especially when coming face-to-face with another mercenary out for a fight. However, before long the player should then have won the Conquest Battle, and taken whatever loot they have rightfully earned.

You Can Climb The Penis of Zeus in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey

In Assassin’s Creed Odyssey you can get extremely up close and personal with the Greek god Zeus, whose penis is officially climbable. Not only can it be climbed, but players are invited to do so in order to reach the synchronization point at the top of the statue, and are rewarded for climbing on Zeus’ penis with a line of dialogue recorded for the occasion.

Penises have been in the news a lot recently, thanks to the launch of DC Comics’ new imprint for mature audiences, DC Black Label. The new line of comics kicked off with Batman: Damned, which made waves by showing Bruce Wayne completely nude for the first time. Batman’s goods were outlined in tasteful silhouette, but unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on how you look at it) the panels were censored in digital versions of the comic. Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, by contrast, is fully embracing the male form.

The ability to scale Zeus’ genitals was first revealed in a Reddit post that offered a particularly cinematic view of the player character dangling from the statue’s mighty undercarriage. Since then a video of the climb has emerged, which demonstrates that when Alexios or Kassandra reach a particularly intimate point on Zeus’ body, they say to themselves, “I should probably not climb on this.” It’s worth the climb however; once you reach the top of Zeus’ lightning bolt (that’s not a euphemism) and synchronize, you are rewarded with a sweeping cinematic view of the surrounding area.

Set in the Golden Age of Ancient Greece, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey casts players in the role of a Spartan warrior descended from King Leonidas I himself. The latest entry in the franchise changes things up a bit, incorporating RPG elements like romance options, dialogue options, and multiple possible endings. The game will also bring back the naval combat that debuted in Assassin’s Creed III, and the developers have even thrown in some sharks for good measure.

The Assassin’s Creed games are built upon a love of history, with in-game glossaries offering facts about everything from the buildings you can climb to the people you can meet, but they also have a healthy dose of irreverence and humor. While it might be immature to giggle at the proudly nude statues of Ancient Greece, it’s gratifying to think of all the hard work that went into making Zeus’ penis a scalable part of the environment.

Assassin’s Creed 3 Remaster Included In Odyssey DLC Season Pass

The season pass for Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey will include remastered editions of the fifth installment in the series, Assassin’s Creed III, and Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation. Both games take place during the American Revolution.

Released in 2012, Assassin’s Creed III tells the story of a Native American Assassin named Connor who fights the Templars in Colonial America. As Connor, players get to explore 18th century Boston, New York City, and Philadelphia. The game added new gameplay mechanics to the Assassin’s Creed series with new parkour elements designed for running in the wilderness. Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation was a standalone title that was released in the same year, originally for the PlayStation Vita. Liberation introduced fans to Assassin’s Creed‘s first female protagonist, Aveline de Grandpré.

Ubisoft has announced the details for Assassin Creed: Odyssey‘s season pass and post-launch content. The DLC will feature remastered versions of Assassin’s Creed III and Liberation, which will come complete with improved game mechanics and ergonomics. According to Ubisoft, the games will also be released as standalone titles.

In addition to the remastered games, the season pass includes two new adventures, The Fate of Atlantis and Legacy of the First Blade. The Fate of Atlantis will send the protagonist of Odyssey to the legendary underwater city, while Legacy of the First Blade will explore the history of the first person to wield the hidden blade, the trademark weapon of the Assassins. Both adventures will be released in the form of episodes that will launch every six weeks. The two stories will consist of three episodes each.

The season pass is clearly packed with content, and the inclusion of two full games as DLC explains its $40 price tag. Assassin’s Creed III is an interesting choice for a remastered edition, especially since the game was not one of the franchise’s most well-received installments. However, it sold extremely well and was considered a major success for Ubisoft. Though it was praised by critics for the sheer amount of content, it was criticized for its story, lack of interesting characters, and glitches. It remains to be a seen if a remastered version will be enough to inspire disappointed players into giving it another try.

Ubisoft: No New Assassin’s Creed Game in 2019



Assassin’s Creed is taking (another) break in 2019. Since the release of Assassin’s Creed II in 2009, Ubisoft’s historical bloody franchise has seen a release of a major game every year. The one exception is with Assassin’s Creed Origins. The only Creed titles released between Assassin’s Creed Syndicate in 2015 and Origins in 2017 were side-scrolling spinoffs.

It seemed like the release of Origins signaled a new beginning to Assassin’s Creed, not only in terms of gameplay but also release schedule. Ubisoft surprised almost everyone by unveiling Assassin’s Creed Odyssey at E3 2018 and setting it for release less than a year after Origins. Odyssey, it turns out, is the exception not the rule. After the Greek epic is released, fans shouldn’t expect a new Assassin’s Creed until 2020.

According to Gamespot, who interviewed Ubisoft’s CEO Yves Guillemot at Gamescom 2018, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is the last game for a year in the franchise. Odyssey is only coming out so closely to Origins because the two games were developed at the same time. For the next entry, a bigger break (and more development time) will be required. This doesn’t mean that there will be no new Assassin’s Creed content after Odyssey. Guillemot didn’t confirm if any spinoff titles would arrive. However, he did explain that Odyssey would be supported with new content long after its release:

What you’ll have is lots of content coming on [Assassin’s Creed Odyssey]. The team really want to give, on a regular basis, some new possibilities for play, so when you get [Odyssey] this year, you’re going to get in for a couple of years, actually.

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey has an announced season pass for future DLC, so it comes as no surprise that Ubisoft is planning more content for the title. There’s a chance though that Odyssey‘s season pass could extend for longer than the average Assassin’s Creed title. Assassin’s Creed Origins‘ season pass involved two rather lengthy expansions and some cosmetic items, all of which released in early 2018. If there’s no new Assassin’s Creed until 2020, Odyssey could be receiving paid (and free) expansions until early 2020 to tie fans over. Guillemot certainly seems to suggest that possibility with his tease that Odyssey should last “a couple of years.”

However, this is assuming that Ubisoft’s CEO is being entirely truthful. Prior to the leak (and reveal) of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, Guillemot suggested that Origins would be Ubisoft’s sole Assassin’s Creed focus in 2018. Back in February 2018, on an earnings call, Guillemot claimed that Ubisoft was just concentrating on Assassin’s Creed Origins and producing a “few other DLCs” for it. This call happened before Origins‘ free update of the “Discovery Tour” and its paid expansion, “Curse of the Pharaohs” were available. Technically, Guillemot wasn’t lying about new DLCs, and the CEO never explicitly said that there wouldn’t be a new Assassin’s Creed game in 2018, as he is currently about 2019. It was just implied.

Assassin’s Creed taking a break after Odyssey is probably best for the series. The year-long break not only prevents franchise fatigue, but also improves the chances of the individual games being of higher quality. Assassin’s Creed Origins was a huge improvement over previous titles. A large factor in that quality was the extended development time that Origins received. Hopefully, Odyssey will be of a similar caliber, but the longer the follow-up is in development, the better.

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Somehow Includes Syndicate’s Evie



Assassin’s Creed Odyssey will include an appearance from one of the two Assassin’s Creed Syndicate protagonists, Evie Frye. Odyssey, the next upcoming game in the Assassin’s Creed franchise, will go further back in time than ever before. Although the last entry in the franchise was Assassin’s Creed Origins and told the story of the beginning of the Assassin’s Order, Odyssey will take place hundreds of years prior.

This place in the timeline makes Evie’s inclusion particularly confusing. Assassin’s Creed Syndicate takes place in late 1860s, placing the game nearly two millennia after Origins, not to mention Odyssey. Defying all logic or sense of time, though, Evie will be a helpful non-playable character in Odyssey – but only if certain conditions are met.

Related: Assassin’s Creed Was Originally Supposed To Be A Trilogy

GamesRadar reports that Evie has spotted as one of the unlockable Special Lieutenants for Assassin’s Creed Odyssey‘s naval combat. Odyssey won’t have as huge a naval focus as Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. However, naval exploration will be a significant portion of the game with a customizable ship, crew and the ability to face off against enemies on the Mediterranean Sea all available. Evie will be one special addition to the game. Adding Evie as the ship’s Special Lieutenant will give the player +12 percent fire damage in naval combat and add specific crew and ship designs.

Evie is arguably one of the best leads in the Assassin’s Creed franchise and has quite a huge following. Yet the means of unlocking Evie won’t be readily available to everyone that buys the game. Odyssey players will be required to join the Ubisoft Club, a free-to-join rewards program, that is included in most of the Assassin’s Creed developer’s modern games. While the Ubisoft Club does usually contain some microtransactions to receive new weapons and/or cosmetics, it appears that Evie will be free. It’s unclear how much Evie will really be featured in the game. It’s not even currently known if Evie’s original voice actress Victoria Atkins will provide new lines for Odyssey. 

Evie won’t be the first time that the Assassin’s Creed franchise has included a logic-breaking Easter egg. It was possible, also through the Ubisoft Club, to unlock the outfits of previous Assassin’s Creed leads in Origins. Origins‘ main character, Bayek of Siwa, could dress up in the robes of Edward Kenway, Ezio Auditore and Altair, even though Bayek (canonically) predates them all. Evie being included in Odyssey does break the franchise’s lore but it’s really just a fun nod to the series’ past. It’s also a fitting nod as Evie was the first female playable assassin (in a non spinoff title) and Odyssey will give players the choice to play as a male or female character.

Of course, it’s not as if Evie being in Odyssey is the only element of the game that is slightly confusing. As previously mentioned, Odyssey takes place hundreds of years before the supposed “origins” of the franchise. There doesn’t seem to be a way that Odyssey can have an impact on the overarching plot of the world of Assassin’s Creed without negating or contradicting huge swatches of Origins. Odyssey does look like an extremely promising game even if it’s releasing in a packed holiday season. It may be best not to think of Odyssey‘s importance or place in the Assassin’s Creed timeline and simply enjoy it as a fun adventure, set in the past, with some hallmarks of the Creed series.
