With Assassin's Creed Origins and its Curse of the Pharaohs expansion, Ubisoft let the dev team off its leash, and the result was one of the most creative, exciting adventures in the entire franchise. However, it was only an expansion and not a full game, unlike Assassin's Creed Odyssey, which is bringing hefty does of magic and myth to the table throughout the main campaign.

So we already know that lead character Alexios, or Kassandra, depending on who you choose to play as, has access to a magical spearhead that lets them pull off all sorts of crazy moves, but things get taken to the next level when you're up against actual creatures of Greek legend.

In Game Informer's latest Odyssey gameplay video, clocking in at a meaty 24 minutes, Kassandra ends up brawling with Medusa. Yes, that Medusa.

Some fans are already displeased with the way Odyssey appears to veering away from the series' historical roots, but where do you stand on this? Don't look into her eyes in the comments section below.
