Assassin's Creed Odyssey (PS4/XBO/PC)

Assassin's Creed Odyssey takes place in ancient Greece, and it looks absolutely beautiful! Much like the excellent Origins with its side quests, this one, too, approaches those RPG waters with dialogue trees debuting in the series. You can choose whether you want to play as man or woman, Alexios or Kassandra. AC Odyssey is coming October 5th, 2018 on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
I am so in, this looks really good. Granted, a lot seems to be recycled straight from Origins, which is a bit disappointing, but then again... That game was tailor-made for me, I loved it so much. My favourite AC and actually my GOTY 2017, now that I think about it. So more of that in new and gorgeous environments together with all the new additions sounds excellent. And I'll 100 % play as Kassandra. :)

Im really excited. The further from Assassin's Creed and closer to an action/adventure rpg these games get, the better in my opinion. I love the setting, lack of white robes and what sounds like some amount of choice in your character's story so I'll probably be getting this one. I'd still like to play Origins.. hopefully I can get to it before this comes out.
I'm happy to be interested in the series again.. after the first the gameplay got really stale for me and I was unable to finish 2 or 3 after being drawn in by the setting. I can't wait to jump back in
Here's a huuuuuuuge preview from Kotaku's Stephen Totilo, a known AC fan.
Holy shit, that all sounds good! So much more than the E3 videos could tell. I love the fact that you can customize the character a way more now. And with those dialogue trees come the chances to lie to people and to romance them, yes. :) And the modern day story returns in a big way, yes. Though also optional, I understand. If you're interested in the game and liked Origins, please read all that. It got me even more excited in a big way.

Just going to crosspost my comment from the reaction thread!
Assassin's Creed Odyssey baby. d(>_･ ) Swimming in these vibes. I love studying everything about the history of Ancient Greece so hard but there are never any good games about the period!! (God of War being one great example obviously, but it's focused on Greek mythology and mostly removes itself from the actual Greek people).
But this game? Playing as a mercenary who is descended from King Leonidas, and being able to fight in battles alongside Spartan shields? Sign. Me. Up.
I just rewatched 300 twice last month too!

It had a really good showing. Love the choice of main characters. For the first time in a long while I'm actually tempted to play that one!

I want to Sparta kick EVERYONE
Oh man, this new structure sounds even better than last year's. These isolated smaller stories, which fits perfectly to the Greek islands. The RPG elements sound really neat, the way you can choose what to do first and what then in those situations, and have the impacts of the dialogue choices also in the mix. Tragedies ahead.
I saw a demo video where Kassandra was romancing Kyra. I... didn't think that'd be possible. I'm even more in, yeah. :)
Vice versa, there should be some boy love then as well. And after all, that wasn't too uncommon in Sparta etc.

I never took an real interest in the AC series before. I played the first game (which i liked), the one on the PSP (pretty good game), and AC 3 (i absolutely hated it). Origins looks more interesting to me, but i still skipped it just because i had a bad feeling about it. But now that there's a romance system in this game i'm actually kinda intrigued to try it, that addition (and the fact that you have more freedom with your character in general) makes it an anomaly in the franchise, one which i welcome. I hope they execute those ideas well enough in the main game.
