WRECK AHOY

With storms on the hori­zon, Odyssey’s oceans could prove chal­leng­ing

PlayStation Official Magazine (UK) - - ASSASSIN’S CREED ODYSSEY -

While com­par­ing Odyssey’s ship game­play to that of Black Flag’s, Jonathan Du­mont, cre­ative di­rec­tor on Odyssey, says there’s more in­volved this time around.

“We have dy­namic weather in the game. Storms on the sea cre­ate big­ger waves, but it’s not that one rogue gi­ant wave you need to dodge,” he ex­plains. (If you re­mem­ber, in Black Flag one huge wave would emerge for you to bat­tle by turn­ing the ship to­wards it.) In Odyssey, how­ever, “it’s more than that,” says Du­mont, sug­gest­ing the whole ocean is some­how against you: “It’s ac­tu­ally one of my favourite mo­ments in the game, when you see light­ing strik­ing these gi­ant waves as a ship on fire burns in the dis­tance. It’s stun­ning.”
