Assassin’s Creed Odyssey release date confirmed for October in new trailer

Numerous press conferences so far, especially Microsoft and Bethesda, have focused heavily on next year's games, so we're hoping to see more timely reveals from Ubisoft.

We've got a bunch more Ubisoft footage coming this week, with some hands-on impressions of their biggest games and exclusive looks at others.

Assassin's Creed Odyssey was blown wide open during Ubisoft's E3 2018 press conference.

Assassin's Creed Odyssey will, as expected, be set in ancient Greece. Additionally, players who preorder the game will get an additional mission, "The Blind King".

Alexios or Kassandra can customise their gear, upgrade abilities, and personalise their ship on their path to becoming a Spartan hero.

The first details about the upcoming Assassin's Creed Odyssey, have been leaked via the Playstation Store. In the meantime, check out both the gameplay and cinematic trailer below. The player gets to choose how to respond to Sokrates, even having the option to lie to him.

One of the most highly anticipated Ubisoft titles to be showcased during E3 2018 is The Division 2 and dare we say we saw a lot of it. According to Gamespot, the multiplayer shooter is getting new maps and characters from the prequel trilogy of movies, while larger scale skirmishes and additional space battle modes are set to appear in the summer.

After skipping 2016, the formerly annualized Assassin's Creed franchise returned in 2017 with the critically acclaimed Assassin's Creed: Origins, which took the series in a somewhat new direction.

Here are some of the important aspects of Odyssey's gameplay that are either new or returning from previous games.

The developer didn't reveal an exact year on stage, but the game should take place around or after the golden age of Athens and Peloponnesian War (roughly mid-400s BCE). Release is still quite a long way away, scheduled for March 2019 on PC, Xbox One and PS4.
