Assassin's Creed Odyssey has had a hard time when it comes to leaks. It seems like everything — from its existence to gameplay — is available either on social media or in the archives of an obscure retailer. A few weeks ago, an innocent little keychain leaked the latest installment in the staple franchise. While the publisher confirmed that the game was coming to Xbox One and other platforms, the company didn't provide a release date. The game hasn't even been properly revealed yet, and we already know almost everything about it. Today, the October 5, 2018 release date leaked on Facebook.
A "UNILAD Gaming" interview with new gameplay appeared on the "The Assassin Brotherhood" Facebook channel where a Ubisoft developer confirmed that Assassin's Creed Odyssey was coming out this October. We also got a good look at the gameplay and various characters. The world is absolutely massive and features a number of improvements over Assassin's Creed Origins. While the visual leap might not be that significant, the new environment still pops.
The title features vibrant colors and a lot of new mechanics. For example, players will immediately notice that you now have dialogue options. Apart from that, naval warfare, taking out outposts, and using your eagle to scout locations are also back.
Hopefully Assassin's Creed Odyssey will be a polished experience when it launches in a few months. Ubisoft is expected to announce the release date at its E3 2018 briefing today. We'll keep you posted as soon as we know more.
