The next installment in the popular Assassin’s Creed lineup of games will be Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. The new title was officially confirmed by Ubisoft, although details won’t be more readily available for about a week or so. However, a teaser that Ubisoft released to the masses gives an idea of where the game will take place.
According to IGN’s report, Ubisoft released a quick teaser video on their Twitter page which reveals the game’s location will be ancient Greece. The video is only five seconds long and reveals one warrior kicking another off a rocky cliff with a city in the background. The teaser trailer ends with “See you at E3” on the screen, letting fans know to expect more details then.
The new Assassin’s Creed Odyssey will be the first title released for the series since 2017 when they brought out Assassin’s Creed Origins. The series has been going strong since 2007 when the original was released. It’s since spawned nine other major titles for the franchise as well as comic books and a 2016 movie starring Michael Fassbender.
The teaser trailer for the new game arrives not long after there was a leak about the new Assassin’s Creed title and information suggesting it would take place in Greece. That leak, according to TechRadar’s report, was of a keyring for Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and showed an ancient Greek soldier’s helmet. Apparently, this latest entry into the series will bring new features along with it such as dialogue options and the ability to choose either a male or female hero to guide through the adventures.
Beyond those minor details, not much else is known about the gameplay or story. There is speculation that this new game is part of a trilogy as players have already been to ancient Egypt and Rome in other games. For now, fans will have to keep speculating until June 12th when the annual E3 event hits California. Ubisoft will probably have a lengthier presentation of the game in store for everyone to really wrap their heads around.
