Nintendo Switch Getting ‘Cloud Version’ of Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey

Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey looks to be one of 2018’s most anticipated games, so it was no surprise that Switch owners were a little disappointed when it was discovered that the game wouldn’t be coming to the platform.

However, a recent report suggests that there may be hope. It is being reported that Ubisoft if planning a ‘cloud only’ release of Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey in Japan only when the game launches on October 5th.

What does that mean? Well they won’t be releasing physical copies of the game, but rather provide streaming access to the game via your internet connection.

This is similar to what Capcom has already done with Resident Evil 7, with game quality relying heavily on the quality and speed of your internet connection. Reports say that Ubisoft will offer customer’s a 1 day trial of the game for roughly $6.50 to see if they’re happy with the product.

 

Stay tuned for future updates on this story.
