'Assassin's Creed Odyssey' College Tour Being Hosted By Ubisoft For Launch

We’re just a few days away from the arrival of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, a game that looks to be the biggest in the long-running series to date. And Ubisoft is going all out to bring its hype to a fever pitch, including holding some events for college fans.

AC Odyssey

The publisher is hosting launch events at over 45 colleges. These will be held next week, on October 5, with Odyssey-themed prizes and refreshments, as well as the opportunity to play the game before its release. You can see the full “road map” of where events are taking place -- and as you can see, most of the states are pretty well covered with these events.

It should be a good time -- if you’re not already playing the game when the special editions release on October 2. But we’d go anyway, because you never know. There might be a toga party…?

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey releases on October 5 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. As noted above, if you order one of the special editions, you can get it earlier, starting on the 2nd.
