This month’s cover game snuck up on me, which is apt con­sid­er­ing the stealthy shenani­gans present in As­sas­sin’s Creed Odyssey. Hav­ing played Ori­gins all year I wasn’t sure a new game in the se­ries, so soon, was for me. Then I spoke at length with cre­ative di­rec­tor Jonathan Du­mont. This is­sue we dis­cuss choice-led nar­ra­tive, clas­sic mon­sters, and sunken trea­sures… and I’m on board. You can read ev­ery­thing on page 50.

In fact, this is­sue is a cel­e­bra­tion of the en­tire se­ries. On page 64 we dive back into ev­ery As­sas­sin’s Creed game, and on page 60 we in­ter­view Jes­per Kyd, com­poser of the se­ries’ mu­sic, and chat with The Flight, who wrote and per­formed Odyssey’s theme.

When we do take our eye off As­sas­sin’s Creed it’s to cast it over Rock­star’s his­tor­i­cal epic, Red Dead Re­demp­tion 2, on page 30. Look­ing to the fu­ture we go hand­son with Metro Ex­o­dus on page 42, too. We have all time zones cov­ered this is­sue!
