Reasons to Pre-Order Assassin’s Creed Odyssey & 3 Reasons to Wait

We understand that "games as a service" is a pretty hot concept right now, but featuring Rainbow Six: Siege, For Honor and Mario + Rabbids felt like a misstep, especially when people are hungry for new experiences and fresh games.

Time for one of the big guns - it's Assassin's Creed Odyssey. From the moment the doors bust open with a rousing performance for Just Dance 2019, Ubisoft was unrelenting with a host of deep dives into their growing library of well established franchises. After a world premiere trailer that introduced Odyssey, we received our first look at its gameplay.

We got to see the leaked Assassin's Creed Odyssey, which was through no fault of Ubisoft that the wind was taken out of its sails, as well as several other reveals.

All of these locations among many others throughout the entire greek empire around the time of the Peloponnesian War. A relic called the Spear of Leonidas will unlock what the company describes as: "Seemingly supernatural" abilities as players progress through the game.

Studio chief Todd Howard confirmed that the new game takes the series in a different direction to the older single-player titles, as Fallout 76 takes the form of an "entirely online" multiplayer role-playing game (RPG) with survival mechanics.

One of the most highly anticipated Ubisoft titles to be showcased during E3 2018 is The Division 2 and dare we say we saw a lot of it. It's got more equipment and loot, and even player choice through dialogue options.

Ubisoft will show off Assassin's Creed: Odyssey on Monday, June 11 at 4PM EST.

Assassin's Creed: Odyssey will be available on October 5 for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Kassandra and Alexios have the same story and both characters are raised as Spartans.

It has to be said it looks remarkably similar to Origins.

A cinematic trailer was initially shown, unveiling intense naval warfare in the Indian ocean. Be sure to stay tuned.
