Legacy of the First Blade, introduces players to the first person to ever use the Hidden Blade, forever altering history. "Each story arc will launch as a series of episodic adventures, with new episodes releasing approximately every six weeks".

The game is a full version of Assassin's Creed Odyssey played through a cloud server, so a stable network connection is needed aside from the Switch console itself.

"Assassin's Creed III Remastered puts you in the role of Connor, an Assassin of Native American and British descent who fights a secret war during the American Revolution, while Assassin's Creed Liberation Remastered follows the deadly Aveline de Grandpré as she travels from the streets of colonial New Orleans to ancient Mayan ruins".

These Remastered editions will feature 4K and HDR on PC, PS4 Pro, and Xbox One X with higher resolution textures, a new graphics engine, and other graphical enhancements.

Okay, so Odyssey launches on the 5th October, and of course it'll have a season pass.

Big boots: Rashford's numbers put him up there with Ronaldo
This is in stark contrast to his club form, as the 20-year-old hasn't scored for Manchester United this season. Rashford has started just once for United this season, but twice with England in the space of four days.

On top of that, Ubisoft has a lot of free stuff lined up that you won't need the season pass for.

All of this will be flogged as part of the game's Season Pass, which features the story arcs Legacy of the First Blade and The Fate of Atlantis, launching in December 2018 and Spring 2019, respectively.

It also includes Assassin's Creed 3: Liberation Remastered, which was originally released for PSP. Even if you don't purchase the season pass, all Assassin's Creed Odyssey players will get access to free story content like the "Lost Tales of Greece" and timed in-game events. Daily and weekly contracts will send players on new quests across Greece. The Season Pass comes with the various special editions of the game, and will also be sold separately.

New Assassin's Creed Odyssey gameplay! New Game Plus is also planned, with updates in the pipeline that will add mythical monsters to defeat, new challenges, and the ability to see how your various narrative choices impact the story.

Assassin's Creed Odyssey is due out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on October 5.
