If you’re someone who likes buying and collecting physical games as opposed to the digital options, then you will be happy to learn that Assassin’s Creed Odyssey will have a reversible cover, each side featuring the different protagonists. This was confirmed via an AMA on Reddit by the game’s Creative Director, Jonathan Dumont. Some of the highlights were also tweeted by the Assassin’s Creed account:

Dumont also answered a few other questions during the AMA, stating that your choices will have an impact on the ending of the game, which really does bring in more of an RPG element to the series:
Yes. As for how dialogue choice will impact the game’s endings, we don’t want to give too much away, players will experience that for themselves. But your actions and choices will leave to different endings. True for other quests too!
The game will also feature a fully dynamic weather system, as well as a full day-night cycle that according to the director looks “awesome”, while the overall feel and vibe of the game will change depending on which region you’re in. You will also have a crew that you will be able to upgrade and utilise with your ship, and the crew will be more than just NPCs on your ship, with them being able to fight and distract your enemies.
It is an interesting AMA, and it is clear there’s a lot of passion from the creative director for the game. It’s also great to see the Assassin’s Creed series being revived with some cool innovations since we know it became a little bit stale. It must be something to do with the “O” in the AC acronym.
