I’m probably the biggest Assassin’s Creed fan I know, even with the recent missteps and questionable directions the series went. After the announcement that the series was going to be put on hold for a year after Syndicate, my mind raced with all of the ways that the franchise could be upgraded and completely revitalized. Ever since the second entry I’ve always wanted the series to explore ancient Egypt; I loved learning about the culture in school and it’s probably the most ripe for that mythological happenstance that is Assassin’s Creed’s bread and butter. Recently at Gamescom, Ubisoft revealed a brand new cinematic trailer for the latest entry in the long running series, Assassin’s Creed Origins.
This trailer makes my heart happy as a fan of the series. We see beautiful vistas, intense action, and some major historical figures. From the trailer we can see the building of iconic structures and promises of backstabbing politics; personally, I’m most excited for the war with the Roman Empire. There are also appearances from Ptolomy and Cleopatra, just all the things to make Assassin’s Creed fans and history buffs alike to really start salivating over the possibilities.
Assassin’s Creed Origins will be available on October 27th on the Xbox One, the Playstation 4, and PC. There is also a listing for a November 7th release date for the Xbox One X. You can read up on more of the specifics of the title at the official website here. We also have some details on universe expanding books and comics here.
