Assassin’s Creed Odyssey will take the stealth-action series to ancient Greece, makers of the action-adventure series Ubisoft have confirmed.
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.
Players will be able to choose their protagonist, whom they’ll play as for the whole game. They’ll play as either Alexios or Kassandra, two warriors traversing a picturesque, if war-torn, country.
Ubisoft showed an extended gameplay sequence that featured ship-based combat. Kassandra walks through Mykonos City, where she’s sent to go kill a rogue Spartan.
The mission is called “Trouble in Paradise,” and Kassandra wields a sword to take down another soldier named Mateos the Invincible.
