Watch 8 Minutes Of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Gameplay

Trials: Rising will be available in February for the PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch. Additionally, players who preorder the game will get an additional mission, "The Blind King".

Here's how the game is summarised: "Write your own epic odyssey and become a legendary Spartan hero". It is a role-playing game experience where you will choose your character, Alexios or Kassandra, at the beginning of the game. This year, Ubisoft has dropped two new videos for the game. It got a full announcement trailer (embedded above) and a lengthy gameplay demo (embedded below).

To keep that RPG blood flowing, that classic feel of the role playing game genre also continues with how the combat and gear upgrades are shown.

One major returning aspect of the series for Assassin's Creed: Odyssey is the naval combat system, most prominently featured in Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag.

That said, the Templars weren't technically in Assassin's Creed Origins; they were replaced by masked baddies.

Assassin's Creed Odyssey is set in Ancient Greece, and will reportedly launch before the end of Ubisoft's financial year.

The action begins as we see our pirate go after his target, first sinking to of the smaller ships guarding it and then going after the big ol' frigate with gold and treasure to fulfil your needs.

The upcoming game will also feature dialogue choice options that decide how the story will pan out.

Over eight minutes of Assassin's Creed Odyssey gameplay was also shared. Ubisoft revealed details about Odyssey at E3 Expo on Monday and showcased the world premiere of the trailer.

As you might expect from a pirate game, Skull & Bones places a heavy emphasis on boarding and raiding other ships. Unfortunately, it didn't really shed much light on how the game will actually play, but we know that it's a first-person exploration game in which you'll be solving puzzles and uncovering a dark plot.
