Assassin's Creed: Odyssey

One of the doubts that has surrounded Nintendo Switch since its launch is whether AAA titles of third-party companies will be able to reach the hybrid console. Some development efforts have made it so and, at least in Japan, a very important game like Resident Evil 7: Biohazard came to the Nintendo system via stream from the cloud. Well, today it was confirmed that Ubisoft will follow that path and on next October 5 Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey will debut on Switch.

Today, during the Nintendo Direct broadcast in Japan, the Japanese company revealed that Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey will come to Switch in a version that will be offered to players via stream from the cloud.

As you know, the use of this type of technology makes it possible for titles with high production values to reach the hybrid console and after the Capcom experience, everything indicates that more companies will try to prove this type of distribution to the Japanese public. So, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey – Cloud Version for Switch will debut in Japan on the same day as the regular version for PS4, Xbox One, and PC worldwide.

In recent news, Ubisoft shared the details about Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey Season Pass ($40 USD). Its first downloadable adventure will be Legacy of the First Blade. It is a content that will arrive in December, which will show the first person to use a Hidden Blade and will tell the story of the formation of the Order of the Assassins.

It will be in the spring of 2019 when The Fate of Atlantis arrives. It is a second downloadable history content that will transport us to Atlantis to discover the mysteries of this sunken city. There we will find mythical creatures that we will face. It is important to note that the post-release content of Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey will come as a series of episodic adventures that will receive content approximately every 6 weeks.
