Comparison and differences between Assassin’s Creed Valhalla vs Assassin’s Creed Odyssey:

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey was the most captivating game of the series. It was beautiful & was packed with action including stealth & RPG elements which hooked me up from start to end. One thing that I liked the most was the gameplay mechanics such as its attack modes. Odyssey made protagonist looked like a Samurai & he had full control over his blade.

Every new game in the Assassin’s Creed series amuse players & it gives the series a new direction. The series started as a stealth action & now it has been converted into a role playing game. Below you can find every improvement in the Assassin’s Creed Valhalla when compared with Assassin’s Creed Odyssey.

Instant Kill:

In the most recent game of Assassin’s Cred series, the hidden blade that had since been in AC franchise, has been omitted, & a lot of players did not like it. Players can hide in the crowd, & then come back for a finishing blow from the back of enemy.

In Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, hidden blade has been replaced by the spear of Leonidas, which can provide double purpose such as acting as a hidden blade & an off-handed sword. A lot of gamers are doubtful about where the series is heading, but social stealth, will be back in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.


Less Grind:

It is a big upgrade in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla because the world felt so bloated. For doing more of the work, you must level up your character. This thing became very repetitive & took players away from the essence of the game. A lot of gamers waited for this & creators of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla paid attention to the fans.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will feel more fluid & less cumbersome, that is an exciting feature. The next game in the series is taking us back to the series roots.
