Assassin's Creed Odyssey preorders go live at Amazon

Within the open world ahead of you, similar in style to Assassin's Creed: Origins, there is enough new stuff to set Odyssey apart from the previous games to keep things fun and interesting. The game will be available for PS4, Xbox One, and PC starting October 5. Given that this game is set 350 years before the events of Assassin's Creed Origins, which was supposed to document the founding of the Assassin order, that's not too surprising, although it is odd that the titular contract killers wouldn't actually show up in their own game.

It's called "Assassin's Creed Odyssey", and it takes the series to the world of Spartan warriors and Homeric myth. Both have the same backstory, so you don't have to worry about missing out on any key story elements. Get a more in depth look with the below gameplay trailer.

Of course, MacCoubrey didn't go into detail as to what those endings might be, or the decisions that'll change the course of the story, but she did delve a little into the ripple effect your choices have in the game.

"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.

Opening the show with a Just Dance 2019 musical number, Ubisoft aimed to delight the crowds with game reveals and trailers galore.

Ubisoft is showcasing new content from some of its highly-anticipated titles and announcing exciting new games at E3 today.

As you might expect from a pirate game, Skull & Bones places a heavy emphasis on boarding and raiding other ships. Ouch. The imagery of ancient Greece looks handsome, and at the very end, we see she must face a Minotaur.

Over eight minutes of Assassin's Creed Odyssey gameplay was also shared. Somebody with a very strong personality who is very much established, who you then mould as you're going forwards.

Yesterday, Reddit user Frack-Reynolds noticed that Sony had accidentally dropped a description of Assassin's Creed Odyssey onto the PlayStation Store, revealing the protagonist is Spartan.
