Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is making its way to Nintendo’s flagship console Switch but there is a catch. Players will be able to stream the game on their consoles as the game has been announced as a ‘Cloud Version’ of the original game. There will no option to install the complete game on the console.
This is also limited to Japan and currently there is no word whether players outside Japan will be able to play on their Switch consoles or not. This was announced during the Nintendo Direct event where the pricing system was also revealed about the cloud based Assassin’s Creed Odyssey.
For players to enjoy the game on their Switch consoles, they can opt for one of two methods. They can either pay daily for the game or simply buy a two-year pass and enjoy the game worry free for that time duration. Daily charges for streaming the game are ¥730, which is roughly $6.50 while two-year access will cost them ¥8400, which amounts to almost $75.
This is now becoming a trend where heavier games are coming to Nintendo Switch via streaming. This allows players to enjoy the game on their portable console, which lacks the hardware power to run the game in normally.
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is an upcoming action game by Ubisoft and it one of the most anticipated games of 2018. It is a great news that players will be able to enjoy it on their Switch systems as well, at least in Japan for the time being. We are hoping that it will be announced globally as well.
More details about the title and its availability is not yet revealed but since the game is due soon, we are hoping that further details will come out soon enough. Assassin’s Creed is due to come out on October 5, 2018 on PS4, Xbox One, PC and now on Nintendo Switch as well.
