Assassin’s Creed Odyssey revealed: ancient Greece and legendary Spartans

Gladiator

Not only did they reveal the game via a brand new trailer (above), but they also confirmed the news that players will be able to choose their starting characters. Earlier today game's description was visible via the PlayStation Store where a few eagle-eyed gamers (no pun intended) managed to grab a few snapshots of it before it was pulled.

From all the footage and cut scenes shown, Assassin's Creed Odyssey will bring players through incredible landscapes and prominent ancient landmarks rendered as they must have looked in their heyday. Tragedy befalls the family, and the story picks up seventeen years later with whichever sibling you opted to play as becoming a mercenary with a contract that opens up the world for them. Skull & Bones takes players to the Indian Ocean during the Golden Age of Piracy when pirates ruled the seas, as you can see in the cinematic trailer above.

Well we don't need to wait until Ubisoft's press conference on Monday for a better look at Assassin's Creed Odyssey.

This common thread makes a lot of sense given the amount of work and effort that went into Assassin's Creed: Origins, and it's quite commonplace in the games industry that sequels share assets, engines, and other major features with their predecessors. However, the spear does bestow combat abilities, so that's a plus.

In addition, Assassin's Creed Odyssey will have dialogue options. Origins was known for its breathtakingly attractive recreation of ancient Egypt and Odyssey promises more of the same for Greece, but numerous locales seemed almost identical to places found in Origins.

A beta is still planned sometime before release on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.

We got to see more footage of the toys-to-life game Starlink: Battle for Atlas at E3 2018, but we also learned that Ubisoft and Nintendo are teaming up to bring Star Fox to the game.

In Assassin's Creed Syndicate, the characters would switch between Evie and Jacob.
