Assassin’s Creed Origins – October 27th
If you like open-world adventure games, Assassin’s Creed Origins is this fall’s must-play Xbox One game.
Assassin’s Creed Origins is the first title in the Assassin’s Creed franchise to launch since 2015. It leaves the modern settings of recent games behind for another look at an ancient culture. This time, players are in Egypt during Cleopatra’s reign. Bayek, one of the Assassin Order’s earliest recruits, is out to stop a group that’s manipulating Egypt’s people from the shadows.
Ubisoft says that Assassin’s Creed Origins has the biggest world it has ever created. The game’s combat no longer focuses on pre-rendered animations. Because of that, where you strike an opponent is more important than it’s ever been. Hunting wildlife for crafting materials is also important. And a pet eagle replaces the eagle eye mechanic that forced you to climb towers in Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, Assassin’s Creed Unity and Assassin’s Creed 4 Black Flag. Quests offer new places to go and stories to explore that are separate from the game’s campaign.
Assassin’s Creed Origins launches on Xbox One on October 27th. The game will have upgraded visuals on the Xbox One X after its November 7th launch.
