We were a bit shocked when Capcom released Resident Evil VII: Biohazard via streaming on Nintendo Switch in Japan, but we're even more surprised to learn that Ubisoft is doing the same with Assassin's Creed Odyssey, their biggest Assassin's Creed game to date. There will also be regularly occurring daily and weekly in-game events, giving the player the opportunity to earn new gear.

If you're still not sure whether this game's for you, check out the latest trailer, which will be making its way to a TV screen near you if it hasn't done so already. Regular in-game events like the ones debuted in Assassin's Creed Origins will return, and they'll sit alongside more general updates.

Ubisoft is taking their games-as-a-service model to the next level, judging by their direction for Assassin's Creed Odyssey. The Season Pass, if purchased separately, will cost $39.99. The first episode of "The Fate of Atlantis" will be released in spring of 2019, with new episodes also releasing more or less every six weeks.

To recap, Ubisoft will be releasing two DLC Story Arcs that will encompass 3 episodes, each, in six week increments with the first releasing December 2018, starting with Legacy of the First Blade.

The remastered version of Assassin's Creed III will include improved gameplay alongside the other elements of a solid DLC pack-one that really justifies the price tag. More specifically, it revealed what will be included in Odyssey's season pass alongside the add-on content that all players will get for free.

Assassin's Creed Odyssey is coming in just a few weeks, and it's shaping up to be an incredible game - edging the franchise ever closer to becoming a fully fledged RPG. They also announced that season pass purchasers will get 2 remastered Assassin's Creed title for free: Assassin's Creed III Remastered and Assassin's Creed III Liberation Remastered. The publisher of the game confirmed that it will make its way on Nintendo Switch too. Given that Odyssey is set hundreds of years before the adventures of Bayek of Siwa, this promises to extend the Assassin's backstory even further into prehistory. Players can traverse the entire interactive 3D recreation of Ancient Greece, free of conflict, time pressure or gameplay constraints, after launch.
