And there it is, the world premiere of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. Everything you’ve heard is true. It’s set in Ancient Greece, allowing the player to become a legendary Spartan hero. For the first time in the history of the series, players will be able to pick from a man and woman on their odyssey, either Alexios or Kassandra, before personalising them with gear, upgrading their abilities to suit your playstyle, as well as personalising your own ship to sail the Aegean Sea.
As far as dead cert bangers go, Ubisoft's E3 2018 press conference is sitting at the top of the heap. Even just the games we already know about are going to be incredible to see, including the likes of The Division 2, Beyond Good & Evil 2, and Assassin's Creed Odyssey. But then there's also the chance of Splinter Cell, a rumour of Watch Dogs 3, and who knows what else.
Ubisoft doesn't tend to do leaks by halves, so when the promotion material for Assassin’s Creed Odyssey leaked a week ago, we probably should’ve suspected there would be a whole lot more on the way.
One day, Ubisoft will be able to reveal a new Assassin's Creed to us as a genuine surprise. Today is not that day. Assassin's Creed Odyssey is real, Ubisoft has confirmed. It's set in Ancient Greece, it's going to be at E3 2018, and you kick a man off a mountain. 'Nuff said.
