Ubisoft is showcasing new content from some of its highly-anticipated titles and announcing exciting new games at E3 today. The game features everything from the "snowy mountain peaks" to the "depths of the Aegean Sea", according to Ubisoft, which says it set the game during Greece's Golden Age. In Assassin's Creed Odyssey naval battles are making a comeback, as your mercenary of choice has their very own ship to command. This time around, players are transported to Ancient Greece, smack dab in the middle of the Peloponnesian War in fifth century BC. 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.
Ubisoft is describing the game as a full-on role-playing game with the addition of a good number of key features such as dialogue options, romancing characters, and even persistent environments that change based on actions you take in the game. "We don't have anything specific to share at the moment but teams are working on different things, so stay tuned for more".
