Knossos Palace in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey

Exploring ancient Knossos of King Minos in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey

 

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is an action role-playing video game developed by Ubisoft Quebec and published by Ubisoft. Each of Assasin’s Creed sequences focuses more and more on illustrating the authenticity of each location based on the chronology that the series takes place.

 

Some of the passionate gamers of the Snami Travel team could not miss the chance to express their enthusiasm regarding the virtual tour of Knossos Palace that they immersed into thanks to the amazing graphics and dedication of presenting the Minoan Crete by the Ubisoft video game creators.

 

Of course, within this actual time machine, one must be aware that this journey is blended with a portion of both accuracy and fantasy based on Greek mythology. Through the hero’s eyes, we can engage entirely with the myth surrounding Theseus and the Minotaur. Not to mention that the Grand Staircase leads down to the “Labyrinth of Lost Souls” as it called in the game where the player will run into the Minotaur labyrinthian room.

 

In the game, one can also discover the palatial splendor that once hosted 1.500 accommodations within multiple floors. There are a lot of lavish colorful frescoes of the Minoans, but unfortunately, there no Throne Room of King Minos. But including the heart of the palatial complex consists of the central court and the main hall; the Processional Way, decorated with frescoes such as Prince with the Lilies; the famous Bull’s Horns, one of the sacred symbols of Minoan religion; and the Royal Apartments, consisting of the complex of Double Axes and the Villas of the Queen.
