The Assassin’s Creed series was experiencing a decline in quality, till to the point where one of the most beloved games for fans came out: Odyssey
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is a game that gives the player the opportunity to control the gameplay, to the point where it can choose to play as a male or female mercenary in the Peloponnesian War. The gameplay also includes a very inclusive open world and a story that relates very well to all of this.

If you are a fan of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, then there are some other games similar to it that you may try out:
#1. LORD OF THE RINGS: SHADOW OF WAR
As a successful sequel to Shadow of Mordor, Lord of the Rings: Shadow of War is a fairly well-executed RPG. History and missions will keep you busy for a few good hours and Tolkein’s beautiful world of imagination is something that will remind you of the beautiful story of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey.
#2. RED DEAD REDEMPTION
Although Red Dead Redemption does not give the antique feel of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, it does a brilliant job of bringing an open-world game to those who are fans of this genre. The game gives players a vast world intertwined with interesting missions, NPCs that interact with you, and various types of activities you can explore.
#3. TOM CLANCY’S THE DIVISION
Tom Clancy’s The Division is a third-person RPG set in a post-apocalyptic future. You start as part of the Strategic Homeland Division, in a lifeless New York, with the mission to make the city safe and functional again.
#4. ASSASSIN’S CREED ORIGINS
Assassin’s Creed Origins is the predecessor of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and was the first of the games to introduce loose gameplay in the series. Set in ancient Egypt, the game follows the story of Bayek, a Medjay seeking revenge against the five men responsible for the murder of his child. A short but compelling story that gave Assassin’s Creed series direction and new life.
#5. THE WITCHER 3: WILD HUNT
It makes no sense to talk about open-world RPG and exclude The Witcher 3. The game is the final installation of The Witcher trilogy and follows Geralt on his way to find Cirilla. A game that definitely redefines the term free-roam gameplay, The Witcher 3 is the standard by which it compares to any other open-world game, including Assassin’s Creed Odyssey itself.
