Ubisoft has announced that Assassin’s Creed Odyssey will have a Free Weekend from 19th March to 22nd March on the Xbox One family of devices including the Xbox One X, PlayStation 4 and Windows PC. Players can pre-load Assassin’s Creed Odyssey on the PlayStation 4 and Uplay starting today.
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is set in Ancient Greece during the Golden Age of Athens amidst one of the deadliest conflicts in history, the Peloponnesian War. We reviewed the game back when it came out, and gave it a highly positive rating while at it.
Playing as either Alexios or Kassandra, an outcast Spartan mercenary, players will embark on an epic journey into a living, systemic open world, where they will uncover the truth about their mysterious past and become legendary Greek heroes.
During the Free Weekend players will have access to the full main game content. Additionally, when playing Assassin’s Creed Odyssey during the Free Weekend, all players will unlock the Ezio’s Roman Set through Ubisoft Club.
Any progression made during the Free Weekend will carry over when the player upgrades to the full game on the same platform. An online connection might be required to start the game as a free player along with a subscription: players will require an Xbox Live Gold subscription on the Xbox One Family of devices to access the free weekend trial.
