Assassin's Creed Odyssey PS4 PlayStation 4 1

Assassin’s Creed Origins transformed Ubisoft’s famous franchise into a Witcher-esque role-playing game, and it seems leaked sequel Odyssey will go one step further, adding dialogue trees to the series for the first time. News comes courtesy of Kotaku, who spoke to several people familiar with the project.

As expected, the title will be set in Ancient Greece, although exactly how the timeline will work seems a bit foggy. Historically, the Ancient Greece era occurred prior to Cleopatra and co, but Origins was all about the formation of the Creed, so it seems unlikely the brand would revert back to a period before that. Either way, it sounds like protagonists Bayek and Aya are out – at least in a playable sense, anyway.

With its E3 2018 press conference barely a week away, the French publisher’s understandably keeping schtum for the time being – but with the merchandise that led to this leak hitting stores around the world right now, we wouldn’t be surprised if some kind of teaser trailer dropped over the next 24 hours or so.
