We know that Assassin's Creed Odyssey was one of the games we were most looking forward to during today's Ubisoft E3 presser. And we were not disappointed. We started with a gorgeous cinematic showing off Ancient Greece as you've never seen it before and then were treated to a lengthy gameplay trailer.

Here's what we know so far about Odyssey:

  • it's been in production for over 3 years
  • you can take on the role of either Kassandra or Alexios
  • you are the child of a legendary Greek hero, Leonidas, and carry his weapon
  • the game is centered on being a roleplaying experience where player decisions matter
  • interact with Ancient Greek luminaries such as Socrates

Lastly, we get a behind the scenes look at the evolution of Assassin's Creed over the course of the franchise history.
