We Fight Actual Medusa in Assassin's Creed Odyssey

So much for historical accuracy! In new Assassin's Creed Odyssey gameplay, we fight mythical snake-coiffed Medusa, who turns people to stone with her gaze and, in this case, also hits really hard with a sword. Additionally, some bears may have been spartan kicked in the face.

Though Assassin's Creed Odyssey comes hot on the heels of Assassin's Creed Origins, this feels like a markedly different game.

The mythical elements are more integrated into the game world, with Medusa just hanging out on the island of Lesbos like it ain't no thing. Whether or not that's to your tastes depends on how much of a history stickler you are, but we thought it was rather cool.

Assassin's Creed Odyssey comes out on release date 5 October 2018 on Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
