Ubisoft has revealed during a Reddit AMA (via PCGamesn) overnight that Assassin's Creed Odyssey heroine Kassandra is the game's canon character. 

While the upcoming stealth-action title will allow you to pick between two protagonists, namely Alexios or Kassandra, it seems the novel will be following the latter's stab-happy adventure.

Assassin's Creed Odyssey's creative director Jonathan Dunmot was quizzed if there would be a 'definitive canon story,' to which he replied:

'Yes there will be a canon represented in the novel. It features Kassandra and her journey. But in the game you decide your path, there is no right or wrong way.'

Despite this, he didn't actually talk specifically about a definitive canon in regards to the game's storyline.

Assassin's Creed Odyssey is due out on PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One on October 5, and will include a reversible cover allowing you to pick between its two leads.

Ubisoft is releasing five special editions of the game for launch, and confirmed the title will receive weekly updates, describing the game as a 'service-type product.'

VideoGamer freelancer Ian Dransfield went hands-on with Odyssey at E3 last week, so be sure to read his thoughts here.
