Assassin’s Creed is taking its farthest trip back in time yet with Assassin’s Creed Origins. Set in ancient Egypt, Origins is poised to bring the series back into the spotlight after the disaster that was Unity and the small, but solid, recovery that was Syndicate. Explaining the founding of the Assassin Brotherhood, Origins has the opportunity to deliver copious amounts of previously unknown lore while adding in the gameplay department with more RPG elements and a new combat system that seems to resemble that seen in the Souls franchise.
Whether or not this is the game that will bring back players who were turned off by the franchise’s previous blunders remains to be seen, but the reveal was most definitely impressive. Watch the trailer and gameplay reveal below.
Assassin’s Creed Origins is set to release on October 27th, 2017 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
