So we finally see our first glimpses of the newest Assassin's Creed game, titled Odyssey, and it was pretty impressive. That is, if you liked how Origins played, because it's built on the same engine and reusing a few of the same assets. That aside, we did learn a fair amount about the new features in this game. The game is set in Ancient Greece, specifically Sparta.
Your playable character comes from a choice of two: Alexios or Kassandra, a male and female protagonist respectively, but whichever you pick doesn't seem to affect story or gameplay at all. You play as a descendant of the legendary Spartan Leonidas, and your main weapon consists of the broken spearhead once belonging to him. This spearhead gives you some pretty insane looking mystical powers.
The looks graphically incredible, which is to be expected at this point, and as ever you will be in contact with huge figures from history, and one such figure we saw was Socrates the philosopher.
According to the Ubisoft store, Assassin's Creed Odyssey will release this upcoming October.
