Assassin’s Creed Odyssey’s Female Crews Sing Different Sea Shanties

Sea shanties have been a part of the Assassin’s Creed series ever since Black Flag. These lively songs breathe life into lengthy ocean voyages. Assassin’s Creed Odyssey gives you a ship to sail around ancient Greece and a variety of crews. One small detail helps bring their songs to life.

Most of the crews you’ll find during your journey are run entirely by burly and reliable men, but every now and then you’ll unlock a crew of women. Not only does this allow you to live out your Amazonian fantasies, it actually changes how sea shanties work. While they’ll sing some of the same songs as men, all-female crews also have a few of their own songs. It’s a small little touch, but one that helps Odyssey’s world feel a little more believable.

I can’t wait to read about how historically inaccurate this is by someone with no history background of any kind.

Do you get to hunt down the shanties, or do they come with the crew? Black Flag is literally the only game where I actually bothered to hunt collectibles, because getting them actually had a real, immediate in-game reward and didn’t just fill up a percentage meter.
