Assassin's Creed Origins revealed
The action series returns with a new setting in Egypt
Ubisoft has announced Assassin’s Creed Origins at E3 today during the Xbox press briefing.
For the last four years, the team at Ubisoft Montreal behind Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag has been crafting a new beginning for the Assassin’s Creed franchise. In Assassin’s Creed Origins, the action takes place in Ancient Egypt. Playing as Bayek, a protector of Egypt whose personal story will lead to the creation of the Assassin’s Brotherhood, players will discover the secrets behind the Great Pyramids, forgotten myths, the last pharaohs, and the origin story of the Assassin’s Brotherhood.
Assassin’s Creed Origins is a brand-new vision for the franchise featuring Action-RPG elements where players level up, loot and choose their abilities to customize the Assassin. A revamped narrative promises freedom for players to choose and complete quests at their own pace. With an entire country to explore, from deserts to oases, from the Mediterranean Sea to the tombs of Giza, players will fight against dangerous factions and wild beasts as they explore this land.
There will be special editions of the game. In the Deluxe Edition, you will receive the base game, a printed version of the hand-drawn world map, the game’s official soundtrack and the Digital Deluxe Pack, including the Ambush at Sea naval mission, the Desert Cobra Pack and three bonus Ability points. The Gold Edition will include all of the Deluxe Edition Digital content plus the Season Pass. The Season Pass will give players access to all upcoming major expansions and equipment sets.
Fans who pre-order will receive the Secrets of the First Pyramids mission. In it, players will discover the secrets behind the construction of the first pyramids and what mysteries lie within.
AC Origins will be released worldwide at the launch of the Xbox One X and on October 27, 2017 for Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
