Is there anything better than watching Michael B. Jordan punch stuff to the beat of a Kendrick Lamar song? If you ask the Creed II trailer, the answer is no and that's frankly fantastic. The trailer sets up the emotionally charged face-off between Adonis Creed and Ivan Drago Jr., the son of the man who killed his father in the ring back in Rocky IV, by showing Adonis going HAM on training for his shot to avenge his dad and Rocky trying to dissuade another friend from falling to the furious fists of a Drago. Creed II hits theaters Nov. 21.
The first poster for Creed II, the sequel to 2015's well-reviewed Rocky spinoff, has arrived and it's as dramatic and awesome as expected. SEE ALSO: 'Creed' review: The'Rocky' franchise roars again with a searing jolt of adrenaline The poster features Adonis Creed as played by Michael B. Jordan standing tall and hella buff in gloves and striped shorts reminiscent of his character's father Apollo from the Rocky movies, with the sequel's "II" in the background. Along with the poster came a synopsis of the movie, which will feature Adonis Creed facing off against the son of Ivan Drago, the Rocky character who killed his father Apollo in Rocky IV. Unlike the first Creed, Creed II has a screenplay by Rocky writer and star Sylvester Stallone and will be directed by Steven Caple Jr. Creed II is due out November 21.
Okay, so at this point we only know three things about the upcoming Assassin's Creed: Odyssey. For one thing, it's called Assassin's Creed: Odyssey. For another, it's set in Ancient Greece. And finally, it will have a spiffy little keychain to go along with it. There are some other rumors floating around it, however, notably that it will feature dialogue choices for the first time in the series history, and that it will include a level of character customization that we haven't necessarily seen before.
The Assassin's Creed games have always had an element of historical realism to them, but it's hard to appreciate that cultural authenticity when you're five seconds away from being stabbed by a Templar. Thankfully, Ubisoft will take the pressure off for Assassin's Creed Origins players. It's adding a Discovery Tour mode devoted solely to giving you history lessons. There are "dozens" of guided tours led by Egyptologists and historians, focusing on subjects like the Great Pyramids (naturally), Cleopatra and mummification. And importantly, you're free to explore on your own terms without combat or plot getting in the way.
Assassin's Creed Odyssey is real, y'all. Ubisoft officially revealed the next game in the Assassin's Creed series in a tweet Thursday after an early leak revealed its name and logo ahead of E3. Based on the logo and short clip, Assassin's Creed Odyssey appears that it will be taking place in ancient Greece. The clip is incredibly short and features one guy punting another guy off a cliff in the style of King Leonidas in the movie 300. If the Spartan helmet in the logo didn't make it clear enough that this game is set in ancient Greece, surely that kick cements it.
