The Assassin's Creed games have been a staple in many of our libraries for a while, which is why we're looking forward to checking out Assassin's Creed Odyssey. It will be the eleventh main installment of the Assassin's Creed series, and will take place in Ancient Greece. With a rich new setting in the earliest time period of an AC game yet, we're ready to get back to stealthing, stabbing people, and climbing really tall buildings. Ubisoft revealed details about Odyssey at E3 Expo on Monday and showcased the world premiere of the trailer.
You'll join the adventure as a Spartan, either Alexios or Kassandra. The exact time is 431 BC during the Peloponnesian War. It's a delicate time in history and as you play, you'll be surrounded by key events from our past and have the oppportunity to become a legendary hero. The combat system has been given a makeover and naval combat is back, which means you can set sail on the Mediterranean Sea. If you're interested in participating in massive battles with hundreds of soldiers, that's on the table.
And on the narrative side, Odyssey brings something new to the world with interactive dialogue trees that will impact the story. Get a more in depth look with the below gameplay trailer.
Assassin's Creed Odyssey will be out in October 5 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC. What about the gameplay and trailer has you most excited? Share your thoughts in the comments.
