So far, Bethesda Game Studios and Electronic Arts (EA) have showcased their latest titles at the expo, while Microsoft debuted a number of first and third-party games during its conference on Sunday evening.

As expected, Assassin's Creed Odyssey was a huge part of the Ubisoft E3 2018 press conference.

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey: First Details Leaked via Playstation Store.

One of the Assassin's Creed Odyssey pre-order perks is an early release date though it looks like it only comes with the expensive bundles.

We recently caught up with narrative director Mel MacCoubrey ahead of Assassin's Creed Odyssey's E3 reveal. You'll be able to play the whole game as Alexios or Kassandra, the grandchild of the mighty Leonidas. The player gets to choose how to respond to Sokrates, even having the option to lie to him. In the meantime, check out both the gameplay and cinematic trailer below.


Fight Epic Battles: Show off your extraordinary warrior abilities and shift the tides of battle during one of the deadliest conflicts of the time, the Peloponnesian War.

We got a few surprise announcements and saw a bit more of games we're already looking forward to playing in 2018 and beyond.


Anyone who fondly remembers fighting on the high seas in Assassin's Creed Black Flag, rejoice! With this new Assassin's Creed, choices really do matter and so everything you do will be taken into account as you pursue people. That should make the game feel more RPG-like, along the lines, perhaps, of games like Mass Effect. The game features everything from the "snowy mountain peaks" to the "depths of the Aegean Sea", according to Ubisoft, which says it set the game during Greece's Golden Age.

A beta is still planned sometime before release on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.


It may not surprise you to know that Ubisoft's presentation at the Electronic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles included its annual, lengthy musical tie-in to its annual Just Dance franchise.
