Assassin’s Creed Odyssey makes it’s own nod to the Battle Royale trend, with a quest that’s strangely familiar.

The Battle of 100 Hands is a quest within Assassin’s Creed Odyssey that pits the protagonist Kassandra, or her brother Alexios, in a battle against 99 other competitors in a fight to the death. Sound familiar?

To start the quest, Kassandra will have to cross paths with a street hawker, Drakios, who is gathering up entrants for a showpiece battle. Kassandra can choose to take part in the event, with a nice, large pot of drachmae for the winner.

As with all other Battle Royale titles, the 100 competitors begin to fight in a free-for-all against each other. As the numbers dwindle, your opponents start to band together against you, and your victory might well end up being a little Pyrrhic.

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is available now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
