Assassin's Creed Odyssey was blown wide open during Ubisoft's E3 2018 press conference. It got a full announcement trailer (embedded above) and a lengthy gameplay demo (embedded below). And yes, as the leak prior to the show suggested, it launches this year, on the 5th October.

Perhaps the biggest takeaway here is that it's going full role-playing game, as demonstrated in the demo. It's got more equipment and loot, and even player choice through dialogue options. It's basically building on what Assassin's Creed Origins went for.

Speaking of which, Odyssey looks lot like its predecessor -- right down to the kill animations. That said, it's clear Odyssey is looking to be a lot more expansive in terms of general scope. We're looking at naval battles, full-on skirmishes with dozens of troops on land, and other revamped systems. Oh, and you get to choose between two characters at the start of the game -- one male, one female. Again, as was leaked.
