“Assassin’s Creed Odyssey” Launch Trailer

Assassins Creed Odyssey Launch Trailer

The next major AAA game title set for release in the usual crazy Fall season this year is Ubisoft’s “Assassin’s Creed Odyssey,” the Ancient Greece-set new installment in the franchise set right in the middle of the Peloponnesian War.

The Spartans and the Athenians are tearing each other apart and you inhabit the role of a Spartan mercenary sentenced to death by their family. The clip confirms you play a member of King Leonidas’ bloodline, and there are flashbacks to the Battle of Thermopylae (as seen in Zack Snyder’s “300”).

One change though is the ability for the player to play as either a male or female in this game which is slated for release on October 5th.
