Assassin's Creed Odyssey does things a little bit differently from the games in the series that have come before it: it has more than one ending. Rather than a relatively tight story focused around central assassinations, the title has doubled down on the open world elements of the series, pushing the template formed by Assassin's Creed Origins to its limit and providing a more sprawling experience.
It's not just the gameplay that has been varied from previous iterations, however. The title also has multiple endings, meaning that - depending on what choices the player makes over the course of the game - they could have a different ending to that of another player. On top of this, the title's three core storylines all have their own separate ending points, meaning that in reality each playthrough has three endings to achieve. It makes it a great game, but one players may need to plan for to reach all end points.
Given the size of Assassin's Creed Odyssey, some players may want some hints on how best to reach these different finales. To help with this, read on to find out about the nine multiple endings to the personal Odyssey of the misthios, as well as how to reach those end points for the other two story strands. As expected, major spoilers can be found ahead.
Endings To Assassin's Creed Odyssey
The Odyssey covers what is effectively the main personal plot of Assassin's Creed Odyssey. Whether the player chooses Kassandra or Alexios as their hero, the core plot remains the same: find out what happened to your family, and attempt some kind of reunion.
The best ending for this arc sees the player keeping their entirely family alive, saving their sibling Deimos from the whisperings of the evil Cult of Kosmos and sparing the lives of some of their more rambunctious family members. How to achieve the perfect end to this story has already been covered, so click through to find out how to save the entire family and get the best ending.
There are some other endings available, though. If having the picture perfect finale doesn't fit with a player's attempt to build their own Greek myth, here are all nine of the options available:
Save Everyone: bring back Deimos from the Cult of Kosmos, spare Nikolaos, spare Stentor, and keep Myrrine alive.
The misthios, Myrrine, Deimos, and Nikolaos are alive: kill Stentor when given the chance to fight him. Spare Nikolaos, keep Myrrine alive, and bring Deimos back from the Cult of Kosmos.
The misthios, Myrrine, Stentor, and Nikolaos are alive: do not save Deimos from the Cult of Kosmos, and instead kill them. Spare Nikolaos, save Myrrine, and change the mind of Deimos to take her back from the Cult of Kosmos.
The misthios, Myrrine, and Nikolaos are alive: do not save Deimos from the Cult of Kosmos, and kill Stentor when given the chance. Spare Nikolaos when confronting him, and save Myrrine.
The misthios, Myrrine, and Deimos are alive: kill Nikolaos when confronting him, and kill Stentor when given the chance. Save Myrrine, and save Deimos from the Cult of Kosmos.
The misthios, Nikolaos, and Stentor are alive: do not save Myrrine, and kill Deimos when unable to change her mind from the Cult of Kosmos. Spare Nikolaos when confronting him, and do not fight Stentor.
The misthios and Myrrine are alive: kill Nikolaos when confronting him, do not save Myrrine, kill Deimos after being unable to bring her back from the Cult, kill Stentor when given the opportunity. Save Myrrine.
The misthios and Nikolaos are alive: spare do not save Myrrine, kill Stentor when given the chance, fail to bring Deimos back from the Cult and instead kill them. Spare Nikolaos when confronting him.
Just the misthios survives: kill Nikolaos, Stentor, and Deimos. Do not save Myrrine.
Depending on the ending that the player receives based on their decisions, they will then be able to get a special cut scene that shows what remains of the family. Getting the best ending here will give players a nice sense of togetherness, with all of the family getting together for dinner together. An added bonus is then allowing the player to use any of the family as a lieutenant on their ship, with plenty of buffs between them.
Assassin's Creed Odyssey The Cult of Kosmos Ending
Although The Odyssey revolves around the core plot of the family of the misthios, that plot is also intrinsically linked to the Cult of Kosmos. The cult, a shadowy organization that has been undermining Greece behind the scenes, had a major part to play in the history of the player and the breakdown of their family, and as such seeking answers about the family will inevitably lead the player up against the cult.
There's one handy solution to this problem, though: kill all of them. Tracking down and destroying the Cult of Kosmos is perhaps the most rewarding part of the game, with each cultist revealing a clue to find another member of the group. The plot of The Odyssey will mean the player has to assassinate certain members of the cult, but hunting the rest of them is a voluntary endeavor.
Although there are a couple of members of the cult that can be spared, for the most part it's bloody work, including taking part in Assassin's Creed Odyssey's Conquest Battles. Once all of the cult have been defeated, though, the player will be able to uncover the surprising leader of the cult and get a little cut scene that ties together Assassin's Creed Odyssey with the larger Assassin's Creed universe - sort of. It's a fitting reward to destroying the Cult of Kosmos, giving a little bit of context to a game that at times feels very different from its predecessors.
