Assassin's Creed Odyssey: Everything we know so far

Assassin's Creed Odyssey: Everything we know so far

Ubisoft's has officially confirmed the name of the next installment of its Assassin's Creed franchise: Assassin's Creed Odyssey. The game is set in Ancient Greece and seems to focus on the Spartans, as its logo features a Spartan helmet and the teaser seems to be a nod to the infamous kick from Zack Snyder's "300" in which Spartacus kicks a Persian messenger down to his death.

According to Kotaku, Odyssey is set to be an even more significant departure for the series than last year's Assassin's Creed Origins.

Based on the small amount of material we've seen, Odyssey would seem to take place, paradoxically, centuries before Origins' 1st-century BCE timeframe. Insiders claim that the new game will be out in less than a year and will have new gameplay elements.

Well, with the cat out of the bag, it seems Ubisoft has chose to just go ahead and confirm Assassin's Creed Odyssey.

IT’S ON: White House Says Trump-Kim Summit ‘EXPECTED’ for June 12
South Korean media speculated that Mr Pompeo could make a third trip to Pyongyang after Kim Yong Chol's U.S. trip. North Korean diplomats and officials are not allowed to travel more than a few miles outside New York City.

Italy renews attempt to form a government to end turmoil
Mr Conte previously quit as PM designate because the president wouldn't accept an anti-euro candidate for economy minister. The earliest date at which elections could happen is July 29th, if Mattarella dissolves parliament on Wednesday.

Steady rise in supermarket fuel prices
Delhi has the lowest fuel price among all metros and most state capital due to lower incidence of local sales tax or VAT. The price of petrol in Kolkata is Rs 81.06/litre and Rs 81.43/litre in Chennai, according to Indian Oil Corporation .

While we don't know much more about the game at the moment, Kotaku reports that Odyssey will retain numerous RPG elements introduced in Origins as well as introduce a few new ones, such as dialogue options. Shortly after the gaming community began sharing their opinions on the game, Ubisoft took to social media to announce Assassin's Creed Odyssey alongside a very brief teaser trailer.

One of my favorite parts of Assassin's Creed: Origins was exploring the city of Alexandria. 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. Ubisoft will release further details at E3. The game is expected to have dialogue choices, which would be a first for the series.

Considering the likes of Call of Duty Black Ops 4 and Battlefield 5 already populating the winter calendar, perhaps Odyssey will launch in 2019?
