After the initial trailer, Ubisoft then showcased a full, almost 10-minute long gameplay walkthrough that showcases a ton of what the game will have to offer, including hefty dialogue, tons of weapon options, and a variety of other new additions that fans of the series will no doubt love.
The Ubisoft conference starts at 9pm BST.
One major returning aspect of the series for Assassin's Creed: Odyssey is the naval combat system, most prominently featured in Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag.
You can see a full rundown of what's in all of these different versions here on Ubisoft's website.
This common thread makes a lot of sense given the amount of work and effort that went into Assassin's Creed: Origins, and it's quite commonplace in the games industry that sequels share assets, engines, and other major features with their predecessors.
All we know so far about Assassin's Creed Odyssey is that it will have a setting based in Ancient Greece. But we also got updates on its popular shooters and time-stabbing Assassin's Creed franchise.
In addition, Assassin's Creed Odyssey will have dialogue options. Kotaku has previously proved to be pretty accurate in its Assassin's leaks, for what it's worth. 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.
"It appears the game takes place during the War Peloponnesian, or about 431 - 404 BC", begins Kain.
Justin Farren detailed the story, explaining how you're a pirate who is going to steal every last coin from the rich. "Delians" are also mentioned.
We were introduced to the psychological thriller Transcendence previous year, but we actually got to see the game in action at E3 2018.
For the time being, enjoy the new screenshots above.
