E3 2018: Watch the Assassin’s Creed Odyssey trailer, gameplay footage

Whether this will be an actual full title or more of a massive add-on for origins remains to be seen. but either way you can expect this new Assassin's offering to be a focal point of the Ubisoft conference. You are the pirates in the game if you did not know that already.

Ubisoft goes even further, claiming this will be "your" Odyssey -- the evidence for which is players having a choice of male or female avatars, Alexios or Cassandra. For example, players will immediately notice that you now have dialogue options. Once you choose one character, that will be it for the rest of the game, so no character switching like we saw in Assassin's Creed Syndicate. That said, for those who were hoping that Ubisoft would be able to keep things under wraps so more of their latest Assassin's Creed game wouldn't leak out to the press, well, today is going to be a disappointing one. Unexpected encounters will breathe life into your story as you meet colorful characters, battle vicious mercenaries, and more.

AC Odyssey is set in Greece, and will be out this October. Setting players loose in the open Indian Ocean, this new mode will let them hunt merchant ships, loot trade routes, and sink enemy vessels either as a lone wolf or part of a pirate gang.
