Everything Ubisoft announced at E3 2018

Recently announced by the publisher is a follow-up to 2017's Assassin's Creed Origins - called Assassin's Creed Odyssey.

One detail that wasn't shared during the release of the latest trailer was a release date, but there was some better news revealed than previous announcements might've led players to expect. In the past, we've seen attempts at VR, toys to life games, and some thinly veiled stabs at potential buy outs from megacorporations. "We didn't want it to feel like you were choosing a blank slate, that's not what we wanted, because the main character of the Assassin's Creed brand has always been an iconic figure and we wanted to keep it that way, even though we're giving you a choice". Best of all, many of these games are actually coming out this year, unlike some of the other press conferences at E3 2018. Given that this game is set 350 years before the events of Assassin's Creed Origins, which was supposed to document the founding of the Assassin order, that's not too surprising, although it is odd that the titular contract killers wouldn't actually show up in their own game.

We are well into E3 2018 now. You can make dialogue choices, some of which alter the story, Ubisoft said.

New Assassin's Creed: Odyssey screenshots were discovered by Gematsu on a German website's server, and assuming authenticity, they show quite a bit of info. New features include customizable gear that you can upgrade as you level and an ability system that is connected to the spear and how you use the spear in combat.

Another huge one for Ubisoft, which didn't seem that way at first is Starlink Battle for Atlas, which is a sci-fi cartoony shooter, also available on Nintendo Switch. The game didn't get any new information other than the start of its open beta which starts on June 21st on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. You'll play through the entire game as either Alexios or Kassandra. Origins was known for its breathtakingly handsome recreation of ancient Egypt and Odyssey promises more of the same for Greece, but numerous locales seemed almost identical to places found in Origins. This is good though as both its graphics and gameplay as well as its soundtrack look promising.
