‘Assassin’s Creed Odyssey’ Confirmed to Take Place in Ancient Greece

‘Assassin’s Creed Odyssey’ Confirmed to Take Place in Ancient Greece

The recent leaks of Assassin's Creed Odyssey through Walmart, prior rumors and yesterday's key-ring fiasco have led Ubisoft to officially announce its existence with a 5 second teaser trailer on Twitter this morning.

And if that dude getting kicked off cliff seems recognisable, it is because it is basically just that bit from 300.

This development has caused numerous game's fans to rejoice. Instead, it's said that you'll get to choose whether you play as a male or female protagonist, both of whom are entirely new characters. The leak originally came from upcoming Assassin's Creed merchandise, which was spotted by French site, JeuxVideoLive.

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.

As the YouTube teaser ends - Assassin's Creed: Odyssey - see you at E3 - we should find out a lot more about this game on Monday 11 June, during Ubisoft's main E3 press conference.

One of my favorite parts of Assassin's Creed: Origins was exploring the city of Alexandria.

Will there be any surprises left when E3 2018 finally hits later this month? While Origins altered the combat, Odyssey will introduce dialogue options, a first for the series. Odyssey could release this fall, though Ubisoft could potentially release it early in 2019, thus avoiding the Fall rush of titles.

The timing of the peak of the Spartan era, which peaked around the 6th to 4th Century BCE, doesn't exactly fit with rumors that the game will be a sequel to the ancient Egyptian "Assassin's Creed Origins", which occurred during the 1st Century BCE.
