Game developer company Ubisoft has unveiled the next game of its popular Assassin's Creed series during its showcase at the E3 gaming convention on June 11th.

After skipping 2016, the formerly annualized Assassin's Creed franchise returned in 2017 with the critically acclaimed Assassin's Creed: Origins, which took the series in a somewhat new direction. After a world premiere trailer that introduced Odyssey, we received our first look at its gameplay.

The Ubisoft E3 2018 press conference has a 1pm start time in Los Angeles. The new game comes on the heels of last year's Assassin's Creed Origins, which was set in Ancient Egypt. Raids. As if all those weren't enough, we got to find out tonight that the game will get three different pieces of DLC bringing new stories, new areas, and new activities.

Elsewhere, Trials Rising will have pleased fans of Trials (well, duh) and The Division 2 got plenty of airtime via a dramatic rendered introduction and some short in-game action sequences.

Ubisoft has hinted that Splinter Cell is still something that's alive within its walls, though - so we're holding out to hear something more about the title at E3 this year. In Assassin's Creed Syndicate, the characters would switch between Evie and Jacob.

The game is set to release on 14 November for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. But what you probably don't know is that Ubisoft has taken a leaf out of BioWare's book in terms of romance and friendship, why? Either of the characters possesses the Spear of Leonidas, which will play a major role in gameplay and in the story.

Ubisoft also revealed details of the various editions of Assassin's Creed Odyssey: there will be a Digital Deluxe Edition bringing extra gear packs, a naval pack and boosts to XP and currency. Stay tuned to SegmentNext for coverage on the remainder of it with Sony and Nintendo's shows.
