Within the open world ahead of you, similar in style to Assassin's Creed: Origins, there is enough new stuff to set Odyssey apart from the previous games to keep things fun and interesting.

Assassin's Creed Odyssey will release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC with appropriate other versions of the consoles (pro, s, x) also getting releases.

It's called "Assassin's Creed Odyssey", and it takes the series to the world of Spartan warriors and Homeric myth. When the game begins, you'll be able to play as either Alexios, or Kassandra. But what they did mention was their fascination with what we know of the first civilization and how it intertwines with mythology. It got a full announcement trailer (embedded above) and a lengthy gameplay demo (embedded below). But, more importantly, it makes some much-needed changes to the classic Assassin's Creed mould.

Ship customization, battles, special ability mechanics and multiplayer "backstabbing" are only the base of Skull and Bones, making it a worthy successor to Ubisoft's similar naval title Assassin's Creed Black Flag.

At E3 2018 on Monday, Ubisoft gave us an extended look at the upcoming pirate sim, and it's looking pretty good so far.

Assassin's Creed: Odyssey is expected to release by March 31, 2019.

We'll no doubt learn a lot more about the game tomorrow afternoon when Ubisoft reveal all during their press briefing. A few information about its story has been revealed along with a lovely trailer showing its vast world and vibrant colors. It's got more equipment and loot, and even player choice through dialogue options.

As you might expect from a pirate game, Skull & Bones places a heavy emphasis on boarding and raiding other ships. In the video above, we get to see how upgrades truly matter and that golden pot at the end of a long grind. What about the gameplay and trailer has you most excited?
