A few hours ago, multinational videogame publisher Ubisoft announced an expansion for the highly anticipated Assassin’s Creed Origins. And no, it’s not the typical collection of in-game add-ons. Ubisoft has decided to extend the Assassin’s Creed Origins universe to the non-digital real world – in hard copy.
An Assassin’s Creed Origins novel, artbook, comic miniseries, and official guide are expected for a worldwide fall release
Assassin’s Creed Origins Desert Oath
Author and historian Oliver Bowden (a.k.a. Anton Gill) will grace us with a brand new Assassin’s Creed novel to sink our fangirl (and fanboy) teeth into. The novel will walk us through the origins of Assassin’s Creed Origins. It’ll follow a much younger Bayek, the protagonist who had to flee his tranquil home in Siwa in order to uncover truths, and pursue his true purpose as protector of the land of the Nile.
Assassin’s Creed Origins Comics
Publisher Titan Comics and writer Anne Toole have collaborated to deliver four comic books. They will introduce us to the early Assassins’ brotherhood years, the history of Ancient Egypt and its remarkable figures, and Assassin’s Creed Origins‘ both in-game characters and brand new ones.
Assassin’s Creed Origins Artbook
Titan Comics will also be publishing the artbook for Assassin’s Creed Origins. Taking us back to Ancient Egypt, the artbook will show off mystical Egyptian landmarks and unveil the era’s cryptic myths, the in-game weaponry, and more. The artbook will also contain concept art, city maps, character design sketches – all accompanied by game creators’ commentary.
The Complete and Official Guide for Assassin’s Creed Origins
Published by PRIMA Games, the official guide for Assassin’s Creed Origins will accompany the player during playthrough. It contains information on weapons and gear, a complete game walkthrough, as well as impressively instructive and detailed maps. Moreover, an electronic guide version will be digitally accessible via phone if you purchase the physical copy of the guide.
With the Assassin’s Creed Origins published assortment, Ubisoft aims to expose the franchise’s fanatics to more in-depth knowledge of Ancient Egypt, Bayek’s juvenescence, the Assassins’ origins, and in-game tips and tricks.
