Numerous press conferences so far, especially Microsoft and Bethesda, have focused heavily on next year's games, so we're hoping to see more timely reveals from Ubisoft.

As expected, Assassin's Creed Odyssey was a huge part of the Ubisoft E3 2018 press conference.

Ubisoft will show off Assassin's Creed: Odyssey on Monday, June 11 at 4PM EST.

From Assassin's Creed to Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six, Ubisoft has proved deft at provided games in many different genres to gamers all over the world and doing it well.

Alexios or Kassandra can customise their gear, upgrade abilities, and personalise their ship on their path to becoming a Spartan hero.

After an initial leak revealed the next entry in the Assassin's Creed franchise, yet another leak reportedly confirms more details about Assassin's Creed Odyssey, hinting at much greater player choice than before.

These are Ubisoft's key titles for the next 12 months and we can't wait to play them - so mission accomplished, basically. Though that, of course, is one of the highest compliments when it comes to narrative-heavy RPGs, so if this new direction for the Assassin's Creed game narrative is even a little like BioWare, we're all for it.

We got a few surprise announcements and saw a bit more of games we're already looking forward to playing in 2018 and beyond. This is good though as both its graphics and gameplay as well as its soundtrack look promising.

All of these locations among many others throughout the entire greek empire around the time of the Peloponnesian War. These began when gaming website Gematsu found screenshots on the servers of GamePro.de, showing all new images and information about the upcoming Assassin's Creed game. It will be the eleventh main installment of the Assassin's Creed series, and will take place in Ancient Greece.

So pop these times into your diary and make sure you return to read all the big gaming news as it's revealed on the day. We knew it was set in Ancient Greece.
