Assassin's Creed: Odyssey teaser suggests ancient Greek setting

Assassin's Creed: Odyssey teaser suggests ancient Greek setting

In the video, we see one character kicking another off a cliff 300-style, so it should be interesting to see how much the game draws from that visually groundbreaking Zack Snyder film. If today's reports are true, the next installment of Ubisoft's popular action adventure game is called Assassin's Creed: Odyssey and it will indeed take place in the land that birthed Western civilization. If the leak holds water at all, we will for sure be hearing about it at E3.

This development has caused numerous game's fans to rejoice.

The curious thing here, of course, is that the timing of this announcement seems to hint at a return to annualisation for Assassin's Creed.

It looks like Assassin's Creed will be reverting back to its yearly release schedule.

With this not-so-subtle hints it looks nearly certain that Assassin's Creed Odyssey will take players to Ancient Greece, where 300 also took place.

Kotaku's Jason Schreier also reported that Odyssey will bring "dialogue options to the series for the first time" and that players can choose to be either a male or female protagonist.

Will there be any surprises left when E3 2018 finally hits later this month? The leak originally came from upcoming Assassin's Creed merchandise, which was spotted by French site, JeuxVideoLive.

"[Assassin's Creed Odyssey] is indeed set in Greece, and it'll be even more of a drastic departure for the series than Origins". Although the previously-annualised series had skipped 2016 in the wake of 2014's disappointing Assassin's Creed: Unity, it's likely that this one will be out this spring, returning to the yearly schedule for which the popular franchise has always been known.
