E3 2018: First look at Assassin’s Creed Odyssey

E3 2018: First look at Assassin’s Creed Odyssey

You are the pirates in the game if you did not know that already.

Reports indicate Odyssey will have RPG mechanics that give players more control over their stories and journeys. You can choose to make an enemy of players or befriend them.

One major returning aspect of the series for Assassin's Creed: Odyssey is the naval combat system, most prominently featured in Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag. In the past, we've seen attempts at VR, toys to life games, and some thinly veiled stabs at potential buy outs from megacorporations.

Originally set for an autumn 2018 release, Skull and Bones will now release during Ubisoft's 2020 fiscal year, which means sometime between after April 2019. While in most games you play as the hero, there are no heroes in Skull And Bones.

As the player ads or removes starship chassis, weapons or pilots, their in-game ship will change, too. And that includes the Arwing, available only with Nintendo Switch.

Ubisoft will show off Assassin's Creed: Odyssey on Monday, June 11 at 4PM EST.

Picking a lead character isn't the only decision you'll be making in Assassin's Creed Odyssey; for the first time in franchise history, dialogue options will permeate the entire adventure. Just as we got to meet Julius Caesar and Cleopatra in Origins, your character will meet some prominent Greek figures in Odyssey such as Socrates.

"It appears the game takes place during the War Peloponnesian, or about 431 - 404 BC", begins Kain. You'll be able to recruit crew members and customise your ship, as you do battle on the open ocean.

One detail that wasn't shared during the release of the latest trailer was a release date, but there was some better news revealed than previous announcements might've led players to expect.
