Ubisoft has a venerable collection of franchises, and one of them is Assassin’s Creed. The original title launched in 2007, and many sequels have joined it, building upon its mechanics and mythos. Assassin’s Creed Origins, the latest installment, is nearing its release date, October 27, and Ubisoft is celebrating it with a new trailer.
Rendered in 4K visuals, the trailer gives an overview of the title, as our protagonist explores his world. Series mainstays like stealth and parkour remain intact, as does the familiar combat system.
However, as detonated by the title, this entry is a prequel, taking place prior to the founding of the Brotherhood. Our hero this time, Bayek, will trek across ancient Egypt, scaling the pyramids, unearthing abandoned tombs and fighting intimidating gladiators. Moreover, the vibrant biomes of Egypt, such as the Mediterranean Sea and numerous oases, ensure that Origins has plenty to offer travelers. Moreover, many mysteries have been left behind by the gods and pharaohs for you to discover.
A new component to the series is the introduction of RPG elements, giving players the ability to select which skills to develop and which weapons to master. Several foes and bosses await Bayek, so he’d better be well-armed! Ubisoft Montreal is helming this entry, and one of their goals to improve combat, allowing gamers to effortlessly shift between close-ranged and long-ranged tools during fisticuffs. As per the norm, the storyline progresses by completing missions, each detailing their own plot.
Assassin’s Creed Origins is the latest mainline title in the series’ lineage. The open-world game will launch for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC for $59.99. Furthermore, those who procure an Xbox One X will enjoy how it benefits the game, giving it 4K visuals.
