Assassin's Creed Odyssey releases on October 5th, gets first official gameplay trailer

Assassin's Creed

Is this the real Assassin's Creed Odyssey story synopsis? Do you think any games will be delayed? We get to see some gameplay in action which you can also view below, teasing walking around the docks, customizing the character and ship.

As always, sequels will be front and center, with The Crew 2 launching at the end of the month, The Division 2 coming early next year, and Beyond Good and Evil 2 deep in development.

Instead of scaling pyramids, though, you'll be scaling Greek statues in places like Delos, Athens, and Sparta. Sounds like it's going even more RPG, doesn't it? It's up to you who you'll lead across Ancient Greece.

While Ubisoft placed a heavy emphasis on introducing the new elements of Odyssey, it's easy to see that some things will be staying the same from Origins, with one of the most obvious being the look and feel of the game. Whichever you choose is an outcast mercenary.

It was announced in August that Rhimes and Shondaland would exit ABC Studios after 15 years for a multi-year deal with the streamer.

Ubisoft toyed with the idea of letting players know whether or not certain lines have an effect on outcomes (similar to Telltale games), but ultimately decided it would be better for players to not worry about making the "optimal" choice. The one played by Gerard Butler in 300.

We're seeing Ubisoft expand more and more into the games as a service model, and we expect that to be part of the focus of this year's showcase, too.

From the video footage, we can tell the game will have explorable underwater locations along with the potential for naval battles. We're not getting our hopes up, but be on the lookout just in case. It is possible, but we're not holding our breath. In Assassin's Creed Syndicate, the characters would switch between Evie and Jacob. Origins was known for its breathtakingly lovely recreation of ancient Egypt and Odyssey promises more of the same for Greece, but numerous locales seemed almost identical to places found in Origins.

One detail that wasn't shared during the release of the latest trailer was a release date, but there was some better news revealed than previous announcements might've led players to expect. AC Odyssey is set in Greece, and will be out this October. Giving enemies the boot will comically send them flying backward; it's ideal for launching them off ships or off the side of a cliff. In total, 8 skills are available to you at once. But nothing comes close to the iconic Spartan kick.
