Swiftly across the screen, an eagle opens to grandeur as it traverses a vast expanse. The Soaring camera pans, as the bird of prey finds a spot to rest upon the perch of a white hooded characters shoulder. At this moment I believe the gaming community that loves Assassins Creed let out a collective sigh. During the lead up to E3 unfortunately, the surprise was ruined with a pre-order card picture and multiple leaks across the interwebs. Here is what we know about Assassins Creed Origins.
You play as Bayek, protector of Egypt, who we will learn started what will be known as the Brotherhood of Assassins. Ubisoft has been running with Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag storyline over the past 4 years. Their focus is now on bringing new life and blood to the franchise while also crafting a new style of AC game like never before.
During the reveal much of the new footage felt like the Assassins Creed of old. Reluctance fell to wonder as much of the new mechanics shined. Though much of the game stayed the same we got a glimpse of some of the new fighting mechanics done on the fly. So what can you look forward to in this new title?
