By Jack Watling, 5 months ago
Yesterday, Ubisoft gave us our first proper glimpse of Assassin's Creed Odyssey at their E3 Press Conference. The title is set in Ancient Greece and is the latest in the critically acclaimed Assassin's Creed franchise. It adds many new features, including selectable genders and dialogue options.

With details about the title now out in the open, pre-order pages for the game and various other pieces of content are now live on the Xbox store.

The game itself is available in four editions - Standard, Deluxe, Gold, and Ultimate. Pre-ordering any of these versions grants you access to an additional mission called "The Blind King".
