The free weekend will give players full access to the open-world title, and as per usual, any progress you make during this time will transfer over to the full version of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey if you decide to fork out for it.

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey was released on PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One back in October 2018, and expanded on the open-world setting of its predecessor, Assassin’s Creed Origins. The game features a sprawling map to explore as players control either Alexios or Kassandra, mercenary siblings who become embroiled in a deadly war with a mysterious organisation known as the Cult of Kosmos.
