Yesterday evening on May 31, 2018, the "Assassin's Creed" official Twitter account tweeted an exciting preview of the next edition to the series, "Assassin's Creed Odyssey." As appropriate with the title preview we were given, it is confirmed that they will be speaking more on the game at E3 this year, which will take place this year from June 12 through 14 in Los Angeles, CA.

This is an exciting followup to the last franchise release of "Assassin's Creed Origins: Curse of the Pharaohs" also released earlier this month. If you haven't finished that one yet, make sure to get in enough gameplay before this next release.

Read on to learn about what we know so far.

Details about 'Odyssey'

Various sites, such as Polygon and Kotaku, cited a French video game site's report by JeuxVideo-Live that spoke about game details. He posted a picture of a keychain, for the game, featuring a Spartan helmet. This symbolism, as well as the name of the game, leads us to believe that it will be set in ancient Greece. The teaser clip itself from the original tweet also features someone getting kicked off a cliff much like the famous scene from the 2006 film "300," which takes place in Sparta.

According to information gathered by Kotaku, people who have played the game so far have mentioned new gameplay elements unlike previous games in the series.

Some of this includes dialogue options, as well as being able to play as a male or female protagonist.

No doubt we will be getting full details and hopefully a release date at E3 later this month.

Game fan's excitement

As one can imagine, news has spread like wildfire and fans have taken to Twitter express their excitement over the news.

Some of the tweets have been expressing hopes for the new game features as well, which seem so far like they will be answered.

Current rumors are speculating that the opening scene will feature Leonidas, the King of Sparta during the time of the Persian invasion around 480 B.C.

Knowing this, it's possible that the game will also feature the Battle of Thermopylae against the Persian army and players may possibly be able to play as Spartan warriors (called a hoplite) or something similar. If you haven't seen the movie "300" or heard about King Leonidas and this battle, he led an army of 300 warriors against overwhelming odds and lost, but the sacrifice was remembered throughout history as a symbol of courage and heroism. No matter what the game entails, we will definitely be tuning into E3 to learn about the details and be crossing our fingers for a close release date. Stay tuned!
