E3 2018: Assassin's Creed Odyssey Release Date, Gameplay, and Story Details Revealed

As has become tradition, the Ubisoft E3 2018 briefing opened with an awkward panda dancing through the streets to the Los Angeles venue.

New details about Assassin's Creed Odyssey have emerged right before Ubisoft's E3 conference.

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. 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.

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.


Reportedly, Odyssey lets you control either a male or female protagonist, who are said to have connections to the First Civilisation. These began when gaming website Gematsu found screenshots on the servers of GamePro.de, showing all new images and information about the upcoming Assassin's Creed game. Unfortunately, it didn't really shed much light on how the game will actually play, but we know that it's a first-person exploration game in which you'll be solving puzzles and uncovering a dark plot.

How well all of those elements will come together remains to be seen, but expect more details on Assassin's Creed: Odyssey as E3 2018 continues. During the game, you yield your grandfather's blade which gives you special abilities as you set out on a journey across ancient Greece.
