Ubisoft officially unveils Assassin's Creed Odyssey with a killer trailer

New details about Assassin's Creed Odyssey have emerged right before Ubisoft's E3 conference. Now that we're done drooling over that initial cinematic reveal for the next entry into the Assassin's Creed franchise, it's time to look at what kind of gameplay experience Odyssey has to offer interested fans. New Assassin's Creed: Odyssey screenshots were discovered by Gematsu on a German website's server, and assuming authenticity, they show quite a bit of info.

The likes of more cult games like Rayman and Beyond Good & Evil are also regarded highly by an worldwide audience - and we expect Ubisoft to really double down on that this year, too. An actual gameplay trailer with finished graphics would undoubtedly be a highlight. Origins was known for its breathtakingly lovely recreation of ancient Egypt and Odyssey promises more of the same for Greece, but numerous locales seemed almost identical to places found in Origins. It might have lacked that one big surprising punch at the end that they've been so famous for over the past couple of years (my world for a new Splinter Cell), but it's hard to fault them after what was shown.

Judging by the clip, the sequel to 2013's critically acclaimed The Last of Us is just as "bloody" as the original, says the news site, although the violence was contrasted with a scene showing series protagonist Ellie kissing another, as yet unfamiliar, woman.

The Division 2 launches on March 15 in 2019.

The Ubisoft E3 2018 event begins at 1:30am IST (1pm PT).

The Assassin's Creed Odyssey release date is confirmed for October and pre-orders are live for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Windows PC.

The company therefore needed a stellar showcase of games at E3 to "restore industry and player confidence in the brand", the website argues.

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). "We don't have anything specific to share at the moment but teams are working on different things, so stay tuned for more".
