But what's most exciting is that you'll get the opportunity to choose who you can play. Players can choose which route they will take - do you want to play the hero?

After the initial trailer, Ubisoft then showcased a full, almost 10-minute long gameplay walkthrough that showcases a ton of what the game will have to offer, including hefty dialogue, tons of weapon options, and a variety of other new additions that fans of the series will no doubt love.

Naturally, though, there's more to the game than just combat.
