A gameplay footage video on Assassin's Creed Odyssey has also been shown, making us think that the game looks and sounds so much like The Witcher. 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.
The interview is with Mel MacCoubrey the Narrative Director of Assassin's Creed Odyssey and she opens up with some high-level thematic details before revealing that you can choose between two characters - Alexios and Kassandra, a pair of siblings from a Spartan background. Raids. As if all those weren't enough, we got to find out tonight that the game will get three different pieces of DLC bringing new stories, new areas, and new activities.
Below, we've rounded up each and every announcement that Ubisoft made on Monday, complete with all of the new trailers that dropped on YouTube as the show was going on.
Here is the world premiere Assassin's Creed Odyssey trailer.
Life is odd 2 getting a set-up game which is completely free
The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit got people talking when it was revealed at the Microsoft E3 press briefing last night. You will most likely see and discover new content on subsequent playthroughs which you might have previously missed.
"Skull & Bones" looks like Ubisoft took the most fun part of "Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag" and ran with it, and I am totally here for that. It's got more equipment and loot, and even player choice through dialogue options. The game features everything from the "snowy mountain peaks" to the "depths of the Aegean Sea", according to Ubisoft, which says it set the game during Greece's Golden Age.
Over eight minutes of Assassin's Creed Odyssey gameplay was also shared. Once you choose one character, that will be it for the rest of the game, so no character switching like we saw in Assassin's Creed Syndicate.
You'll be paying $110 for that one, but the standard edition is a more pocket-friendly $60.
Of course all of your favorite activities from past games will be there too: covert assassinations, toppling authority, and exploring for new weapons and armor will factor heavily into Odyssey when it arrives October 5.
