Assassin's Creed Odyssey: Everything we know so far

02 June, 2018, 04:08 | Author: Kristen Mcgee
  • Assassin’s Creed Odyssey leaks: is this the sequel to Origins?

It's likely that Assassin's Creed Odyssey will arrive this fall, though, as that's been the series' usual spot on the release calendar.

The clip shows what seems to be a Spartan-looking character kicking another solider off a cliff; an homage to Frank Miller's 300.

Multiple sources speaking to Kotaku claim that Odyssey will introduce dialogue options, which will be a first for an Assassin's Creed game. That's why Ubisoft took a year off to work on Origins, and it paid off, with the Egyptian-themed game meeting with some of the strongest reviews in the franchise. If this is true, it means the series is going back to an annual schedule.

Given the two reveals, it seems that the next Assassin's Creed title will be set in ancient Greece, continuing the trend laid down by its predecessor, Assassin's Creed Origins, which was set in ancient Egypt.

KitGuru Says: I really enjoyed Assassin's Creed Origins, so I already have high hopes for Odyssey.

This setting also means we'll probably see plenty of cameos from ancient playwrights and philosophers, and Ubisoft would be insane if it didn't includes some of Ancient Greece's most famous myths and legends. Assassin's Creed Odyssey will take players to the attractive cities and iconic history of Ancient Greece as they seek to overthrow Templars, jump into bales of hay and generally indulge in everything else you'd expect from an assassin. While Origins was a departure from the series' roots, Odyssey will apparently push it even further into RPG territory.

Trump renews China tariff threat, complicating talks
But on Wednesday, Trump reversed and signaled that he still planned to impose $ 50 million in tariffs on Chinese imports . Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross is scheduled to be in Beijing on June 2 to 4 for the latest round of negotiations.

We'll get some idea of what, and how new, Odyssey is - and when it'll be launching - at this year's E3 expo this month.

Assassin's Creed games have a habit of leaking well in advance of announcement.

Ok, that is incredibly short, but the full reveal will be at E3.

The key chain itself is of what appears to be a Greek helmet, which suggests the game will take place in Greece.

Stay tuned for more as it develops.

See you at E3!
