In a recent interview with IGN, Ubisoft’s Creative Director Jean Guesdon stated that “If you want to become the best assassin, you have to become a disciple of that cult.”. As the series has progressed, we’ve seen that every single assassin has a unique and mysterious background. And now, in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, we get to learn more about the members of the Cult of Kosmos who seem to be propagating throughout the ancient Greek world. The new system in the new game is a lot more rewarding than it sounds, and we’re here to show you just how.
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey’s Cultist System Is The Best Nemesis System | There’s a mystery to solve, a quest to complete, and a cult to take down. So, you want to find a way to make it feel like you’re actually hunting down a cult, right? There’s a ton of options available, from using the environment, to throwing in a few side quests, or even creating a cultist for yourself. But, as far as I know, there’s no real way to make it feel like you’re chasing down cults.
I was playing through Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and I noticed something many may have missed or not even noticed: the Cultist system. (This article explores how I noticed it and why it’s important) The Cultist system is one of the most interesting, unique, and engaging aspects of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. It adds a whole new layer of depth to the game by introducing an enemy to follow and hunt. There are multiple ways to build and develop your cultist, and each one has its own quirks, weaknesses, and strengths. The Cultist’s special abilities are also tied to how you build them.

I’ve been chopping my way through Assassin’s Creed Odyssey’s all-you-can-eat murder buffet for our official review, and I have to say, this game simply gets larger and bigger the farther and deeper you go into it.
Odyssey not only expands the world of ancient Greece by introducing new islands, quests, and views to discover, but it also introduces layers of sophisticated mechanics. There’s an entire kill-or-be-killed ladder of bounty hunters and mercenaries to cut through, as well as a vast network of polemarchs and commanders to slay, supplies to destroy, and conquering wars to fight. These mechanisms give you a feeling of how unstable the balance is in war-torn Greece, allowing you to amusingly switch certain areas between Spartan and Athenian rule.
But it wasn’t until I’d been playing for a dozen hours that I discovered the game’s most intriguing subsystem: the Cultists system. It’s a cunning and clever addition to the game, depicting a vast network of conspirators who have been influencing both sides of the Peloponnesian War in order to keep it going for their own gain.
