Romance options are now a thing in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, marking the first time romanceable characters have been included in such depth in the Assassin’s Creed series.
The system is fairly simple – every now and then you’ll find a romanceable character and, if you pick the right dialogue options, get to ‘romance’ them – but nonetheless there are some useful things to know. Namely, that’s a list of all romanceable characters in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, and where you can find them.
Interestingly in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, it seems that regardless of your choice of starting character, all romanceable NPCs in the game are still romanceable to you, whether you’re Kassandra or Alexios – so it works a little differently to similarly raunchy series like Mass Effect.
Romanceable characters in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and where to find them:
For all our Odyssey pages in one place, head to our main Assassin’s Creed Odyssey guide and tips hub, otherwise, we have specific pages on the many Ainigmata Ostraka puzzle locations and solutions, how to get the best Assassin’s Creed Odyssey ending, a list of all
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey tomb solutions, a guide to the Kalydonian Boar strategy and location, and even a guide to Assassin’s Creed Odyssey romance options. Finally, we have pages on how to earn money and Drachmae fast in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, and similarly how to earn XP and level up fast in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey too.
Romance works quite unusually in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey.
That’s mainly because Ubisoft clearly wants you to feel ‘immersed’ in the world – so there’s far less predictability, or gamability, than you’d really expect. A lot of works has gone into hiding the cogs and wheels behind the game’s systems, rather than leaving them open for you to explore yourself, and so romanceable characters or somewhat buried in the game, dotted around in sidequests or random favours you can do around the world of ancient Greece.
The main thing to bear in mind is that the characters listed above are ‘romanceable’ in those missions or mission sequences noted down with them, but most of the time you need to put in a bit of leg work, too – so rather than just completing a mission or task and being reward with, well, that, you’ll also need to select flirtatious dialogue options in previous encounters, and perform tasks for them that generally keep them well disposed.
What else is worth knowing? Here’s a quick rundown of some essential pointers.
