Assassins Creed Odyssey is Big, Beautiful, and Shallow | Ars Technica

At this point, Assassins Creed is more of a gaming institution than a simple series. With almost two dozen titles in just over a decade (plus movies, novels, and more), the franchise has developed its own arcs and stories that go well past the events portrayed in its code.

While the series struggled under an accelerated release schedule some years back, Ubisofts tentpole franchise is on a more solid pacing again. That means a return to what Assassins Creed does best: expounding on and remixing prominent game design ideas and serving them up an aesthetic and conceptual cocktail. Odyssey, much like last years Origins, takes ideas from its best contemporaries and reassembles them into a new whole.

Chris Evans Might Be Done As Captain America, But Here’s What He’s Doing Next

Captain America actor Chris Evans could be hanging up the shield after Avengers 4, but he’s not quitting acting altogether, of course. Deadline is reporting that Evans will star alongside James Bond actor Daniel Craig in a new movie from Star Wars: The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson.

Knives Out is a contemporary murder-mystery movie that Johnson wrote himself. Craig is expected to play a detective in the film, but there is no word on the role Evans may play. For now, his involvement in Knives Out is only a rumour, so take it with a grain of salt.

Essentially nothing is known about Knives Out, but Johnson told Deadline in September that it’s inspired by his admiration for Agatha Christie books and how they are filled with twists and turns.

Some of Evans’ other upcoming movies include a starring role in the The Red Sea Diving Resort, which retells the story of the rescue of Ethiopian Jewish immigrants in 1981. Evans is also pegged to star in District 9 director Neil Blomkamp’s thriller Greenland. However, Knives Out is expected to be Evans’ next movie, according to Deadline.

There is no word on a release date for Knives Out. Johnson is a busy man, as he is also set to direct three more Star Wars movies at some point in the future.

As for the next Avengers movie, the currently untitled fourth film is due out in April 2019. It comes with a mountain of anticipation, given the stirring and unexpected events of Infinity War.
