Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Release Date

But, if you pre-ordered the Ultimate or Collector's editions of the game, you could start playing three days earlier, on October 3. Check out the cover art for the standard edition of the game just below:

Assassin's Creed Odyssey Trailer

The debut trailer for Assassin's Creed Odyssey was unveiled at Ubisoft's E3 2018 presentation on June 11. It shows the story of Alexios, as he embarks on a journey against enemies around Greece.

The war between Sparta and Athens is going to play a central role in Assassin's Creed Odyssey. We're going to play the role of a simple mercenary in the game, and as Ubisoft announced on stage, this is definitely an RPG game.

In the full gameplay demo for Assassin's Creed Odyssey just above, we can see Kassandra (the other protagonist of the game) taking a tour of Greece. The game looks visually stunning, with colors of ancient Greece popping off the screen at you as Kassandra ventured around an island.

Assassin's Creed Odyssey Screenshots

The following screenshots come courtesy of Gematsu, and were leaked online just ahead of Ubisoft's official E3 2018 showcase.

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Main Characters

Although it was originally rumored that both Bayek and Aya from Assassin's Creed Odyssey would be returning for 2018's entry, this was proven to be false at E3 2018. The two main characters of Alexios and Kassandra were revealed during the presentation in LA.

At the very beginning of Assassin's Creed Odyssey, we're going to have to choose which character we want to play as. The characters have the same storyline, and it's said that they each have the blood of a Spartan hero in their veins..

Assassin's Creed Odyssey Season Pass DLC

On September 13, Ubisoft outlined the post-launch plan for Assassin's Creed Odyssey for the first time. Included in the Season Pass for the game, there'll be two main story arcs, each comprised of three episodes in total. The first of these story arcs is called "The Legacy of the First Blade", which is set to follow the first assassin to carry a hidden blade.

The second of these arcs is where things get a little crazier. "The Fate of Atlantis" will take us to the fabled underwater city. The first story arc will release in December 2018, and the latter Atlantis-themed storyline will launch in Spring 2019. The three episodes for each arc will be released six weeks apart.

Weirdly enough, Assassin's Creed 3 Remastered will be included in the Season Pass for Assassin's Creed Odyssey. It'll release at some point in March 2019, and will feature both 4K and HDR support on PC, PS4 Pro, and Xbox One X.

Assassin's Creed Odyssey Collector's Edition

Over on the official Ubisoft storefront, there have been various special editions of Assassin's Creed Odyssey revealed. The more expensive Spartan and Pantheon editions of the game will include the following:

  • Early access starting on October 2.
  • Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Standard Edition and additional digital content including: the Deluxe Edition Pack, the Season Pass, which will give players access to all upcoming major expansions, plus the additional mission The Blind King.
  • By Ubicollectibles : The Spartan Leap statue (height 39.5cm) for the Spartan Edition, two statues forming The Nemesis Diorama (height 39cm, width 65cm) for the Pantheon Edition.
  • The Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Steelbook™.

    *Face-palm* I'm starting to hate leakers on principle. Seriously, how many leaks have there been on this freaking E3?

    @docexe What are leakers taking from you, personally? The "joy" of finding out about a release date when the marketing team wanted you to know it? A leak is a mild bummer for a hard-working marketing team that have to scramble to adjust, but that doesn't really affect you and insofar is advertising is evil, can we really say it's a tragedy when they can't optimally brainwash us?

    @benjaminlu86 Thanks for the strawman to my hyperbolic comment. =P

    But don't mind me, I'm just dismayed because the thing I find the most exciting of this trade show we have collectively deemed "the Mecca of gaming" is the chance to learn for the first time of new games.

    The excess of leaks this year has just made the whole thing less fun for me.

    @docexe I have a problem with people stanning for billion-dollar companies and people who believe billion-dollar companies need stans.

    @benjaminlu86 Fair enough. But my comment wasn’t done with the intention of “stanning for the sake of corporations”, even if admittedly, I made it in a very exaggerated and hyperbolic manner. I’m simply tired of people “spoiling the movie” (for lack of a better analogue).
