Skull & Bones’ Cinematic and Gameplay Trailers Look Impressively Explosive

It's been in development for three years at Ubisoft Quebec, and you've gotta say Odyssey is a pretty gutsy name for a game about Greece.

You'll be able to go through this odyssey as either a male protagonist named Alexios or a female protagonist named Kassandra. Certain NPCs can also be romanced or befriended depending on what you say.

Skull and Bones was revealed at E3 2017, and is being developed by the studio behind Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag. Fine by us. Take all the time you need. Ubisoft has a tradition of ending its E3 press conferences with surprise game announcements, with past events revealing the likes of Rainbow Six Siege, The Division, Ghost Recon Wildlands, and more.

This is the first time Ubisoft has done this with the Assassin's Creed series. The screenshots also give us a good look at Odyssey's map, locations, and tease a little bit of its naval gameplay.

Assassin's Creed has to be the leakiest franchise in video game history, though considering that this next game looks to be as stunning as Origins, we won't complain. Just as we got to meet Julius Caesar and Cleopatra in Origins, your character will meet some prominent Greek figures in Odyssey such as Socrates.

Assassin's Creed Odyssey is now in development.

"It appears the game takes place during the War Peloponnesian, or about 431 - 404 BC", begins Kain. AC Odyssey is set in Greece, and will be out this October. "Embody an insatiable pirate captain, dive into the battle for the ruling of the Indian Ocean and become the most feared pirate, alone or with your gang of up to 5 players", a description of the game on its Steam page reads.
