The Assassin’s Creed Odyssey release date for PS4, Xbox One, and PC is October 5. Unless of course you purchase the Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Gold, Ultimate, or Medusa Editions which are playable from October 2, three days before release. However if you reside in the UAE, you can play the Assassin’s Creed Odyssey right now, a full four days before the game’s initial availability. This isn’t the first time we’ve seen a game release early internationally and surely won’t be the last. Though usually, Ubisoft’s games don’t tend to leak this soon, making Assassin’s Creed Odyssey the exception rather than the rule.
What’s interesting though is that this version of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey pictured above has possibly been sourced from the game’s UAE distributor due to the Arabic text on the cover. Usually, early releases or street date breaks as they’re called, tend to be versions from other regions like Asia, Europe, or North America.
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey release date in India
It’s unlikely that we’ll see early copies of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey in India despite its proximity to the UAE. Reason being, multiple retailers speaking to Gadgets 360 have said that they’re focussing on ensuring a steady supply of FIFA 19. The FIFA games have been exceedingly popular in the country and the fact that they’re only officially available via Amazon India makes them a ripe target for parallel imports. As with most big budget Ubisoft games, there are a host of editions for Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. Here’s what India will be getting when Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is available officially from October 2 onwards aside from the standard edition of the game.
