We've got a bunch more Ubisoft footage coming this week, with some hands-on impressions of their biggest games and exclusive looks at others. In Assassin's Creed Odyssey naval battles are making a comeback, as your mercenary of choice has their very own ship to command. 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. A relic called the Spear of Leonidas will unlock what the company describes as: "Seemingly supernatural" abilities as players progress through the game. You both extend from a spartan bloodline of warriors and you are working in the war to find and protect your family and friends.
Assassin's Creed Odyssey is set to launch on Xbox, PS4 and PC on October 5.
While there was an terrible lot of CGI and scripted cinematics on display, Ubisoft struck a fairly decent balance between showcasing actual gameplay as well as glitz.
We got a few surprise announcements and saw a bit more of games we're already looking forward to playing in 2018 and beyond.
The game will take place in Greece and its surrounding islands.
Skull and Bones was revealed at E3 2017, and is being developed by the studio behind Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag.
Ancient Greece Awaits: From the heights of snowy mountain peaks to the depths of the Aegean Sea, explore an entire country full of untamed environments and cities at the peak of Greece's Golden Age. Just like how Origins leaned into some of Egypt's mythology with fantastic creatures and gods, Odyssey does the same near the end of the trailer where what appears to be a Minotaur shows up.
