So far, Bethesda Game Studios and Electronic Arts (EA) have showcased their latest titles at the expo, while Microsoft debuted a number of first and third-party games during its conference on Sunday evening.

While Ubisoft placed a heavy emphasis on introducing the new elements of Odyssey, it's easy to see that some things will be staying the same from Origins, with one of the most obvious being the look and feel of the game.

The story is based on historical events that will play out accurately, but the game's new dialog system will allow players to influence how their personal stories go. Playing as either Alexios or Kassandra, you take on a quest to protect your loved ones and become a Greek hero.

A cinematic trailer was initially shown, unveiling intense naval warfare in the Indian ocean.

Not only is the setting compelling, it seems that Ubisoft has built on the good work seen in Assassin's Creed Origins to craft an epic RPG adventure, where your choices and actions have a lasting impact on the narrative.

This isn't unusual, as the Mogadishu-based government tends to have very limited practical control outside of the capital city. Al-Shabaab is an al-Qaeda affiliate operating to overthrow the Somalian government, and it took credit for the attack.

'Kaala' records lowest ever opening for Rajinikanth film
Even before the release of " Kaala ", reports of a third film by the duo have already started doing the rounds. Protestors held demonstrations outside theatres in Bengaluru asking fans to not watch the show.

In what is surely E3 2018's most unfortunate news, Bioware's Anthem will not have smooching. As well as all the obvious questions which we covered in our preview, we also got to discuss some of the finer points of the next entry in the series, such as how the team planned to approach relationships and romance this time around.

Over eight minutes of Assassin's Creed Odyssey gameplay was also shared.

The developer didn't reveal an exact year on stage, but the game should take place around or after the golden age of Athens and Peloponnesian War (roughly mid-400s BCE). The demo included the well-known Socrates and we expect you'll encounter plenty of other famous names along the way.

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. During the game, you yield your grandfather's blade which gives you special abilities as you set out on a journey across ancient Greece. The $109.99 Gold Steelbook Edition for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One has a Steelbook, season pass and Secrets of Greece mission.
