Assassin's Creed: Odyssey Goes Gold A Month Ahead Of Launch

The latest installment in the Assassin's Creed franchise is ready to go -- a bit ahead of schedule.

As a general rule in the world of gaming, when a game "goes gold", it pretty much happens at the same time as the game launches -- sometimes even if the game isn't really ready. So it might come as a surprise to those of you awaiting Assassin's Creed: Odyssey's October 5 release date that as of today, it has, in fact, gone gold. 

For players, this should be really good news. It means that the game is as good as Ubisoft hopes to make it. 

Accompanying this news is the announcement during the Nintendo Direct stream that Odyssey will be making its way to the Nintendo Switch in addition to all other standard platforms. However, it will be available on the Switch as a cloud-only only.

Assassin's Creed: Odyssey, the eleventh major installment in the franchise, takes players back to the year 431 BCE, during the Peloponnesian War. There, players will be forced to choose between joining up with the Delian League in Athens or the Spartan's Peloponnesian League.

The game is filled with choices in the form of dialogue options and branching quests. Players will even be able to choose between playing as a man or a woman and have the ability to develop romantic relationships with a wide variety of NPCs.

Ubisoft announced that it had plans to support Assassin's Creed: Odyssey well after launch, going so far to say that "there will be no full-fledged installment to the series in 2019."
