Assassin's Creed Odyssey Is Free-To-Play On All Platforms

Ubisoft

While the world of Greek action RPGs is largely remembered for Sony Santa Monica's God of War, Ubisoft took a big slice of this pie with 2018's Assassin's Creed Odyssey. Now, you can play what is one of the best Assassin's Creed games for absolutely nothing.

Although Assassin's Creed has been going strong since 2007, there's no denying entires like Assassin's Creed Syndicate have faltered a bit. 2017's Assassin's Creed Origins went back further than ever to Ancient Egypt and was praised as a much-needed return to form. However, this was nothing compared to the grand scale of Odyssey just one year later.

Why Is Assassin's Creed Odyssey Free-To-Play?

Ubisoft has confirmed that the lauded Assassin's Creed Odyssey is having a free-to-play weekend that is live now. The free-to-play weekend will run until December 20 at 7pm (local time). Although the play is already underway, you've got the whole weekend to rattle through Kassandra and Alexios' quest across this land of gods and monsters.

Better yet, Odyssey is free on ALL platforms - meaning you can play on Xbox, PlayStation, PC through Ubisoft Connect, and even Stadia. Any progress you make this weekend will be carried over if you decide to buy the full game.

If that wasn't enough, the likes of the PlayStation Store have some great sales on right now. You can currently get the Deluxe Edition for £13.39/$19.99.

How Can You Play Assassin's Creed Odyssey For Free?

On the announcement page, there are links to your various platforms, so it's as simple as clicking the right link and following the download instructions. Unlike the more recent release of Assassin's Creed Valhalla, there aren't dedicated game for new-gen systems, however, it still looks pretty great.

Those who've been keeping up with the ever-expanding lore of Assasin's Creed will know Odyssey's free-to-play weekend is a well-timed release. The Assassin's Creed Valhalla: 1.41. update has added a series of crossover quests with Odyssey's Kassandra.

The complicated lore of AC is interconnected, so it's fairly easy to see these two protagonists cross paths despite being miles apart. Although we know the pair won't flirt (we can't imagine Kassandra would take Eivor's BS), there's a suitably bold crossover that unites the two franchise favourites.

If you haven't swung a sword at some Spartans yet, now is a great time to try out Assassin's Creed Odyssey and see what you've been missing out on for the past three years. Either way, it'll be a Greek tragedy if you don't make the most of this one.
