Featured General Assassin's Creed Origins

  1. After pages from a Game Informer feature were leaked online, everyone can feel confident about those Assassin’s Creed Origins rumours.


    With all the rumours flying about the Egypt-focused Assassin’s Creed Origins, it’s hard to remind ourselves they’re still rumors and not confirmed fact. Now they’ve just earned a great deal more weight, thanks to leaked pages from an upcoming Game Informer feature.

    The scanned pages detail an interview with creative director Jean Guesdon, who dives into Origins development history and the gameplay features fans can expect. Along with the traditional Assassin’s Creed gameplay, Origins is expected to feature a far more dynamic world. NPCs will operate on a day/night cycle, the AI will react intelligently to players, and almost every surface will be climbable. That being said, parkour isn’t your only travel option – players will be able to ride camels around the landscape to reach objectives.

    Exploration seems to be gaining a renewed focus as well. Origins will drop Assassin’s Creed’s radar system for a Skyrim-styled compass which points you in the right direction. The game will also let players raid Egyptian tombs and ruins, even to the point of looting treasure from underwater chambers. Of course, each region will come with its own dangers, including animals that will attack NPCs and other animals much like Ubisoft’s Far Cry games.

    Of course, one issue for many fans will be whether it can avoid the bugs and issues which plagued Assassin’s Creed Unity. On this front, there is some promise – Origins apparently started developed before Unity was finished, and it will benefit from not following Ubisoft’s usual annual release schedule.

    The leak states Assassin’s Creed: Origins is slated for October 27 on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
  2. Today, during Microsoft’s E3 2017 press briefing, Ubisoft finally revealed officially Assassin’s Creed Origins.

    The reveal comes after a metric ton of leaks and rumours, which basically have left very little to the imagination, but now you can finally see something with your own eyes.

    The game has been reported to run on Xbox Scorpio with a consistent frame rate at 4K resolution.

    Assassin’s Creed Origins will launch for PS4, Xbox One and PC on October 27th.

    You can watch the trailer and the first gameplay demonstration in 4K just below.

  3. Today, during Ubisoft’s E3 2017 press conference, the publisher shared more of its upcoming action adventure Assassin’s Creed Origins.

    Assassin’s Creed Origins is set in Egypt during the reign of Cleopatra, and it basically does what it says on the tin, elaborating on the origins of the Assassins.

    The trailer shows the game’s beautiful Egyptian setting, and it looks really charming.

    While we saw a lot of the game yesterday, a presence at today’s press conference was predictable, and in fact here it is.

  4. Ubisoft showed Assassin’s Creed: Origins on stage twice, once with the help of a gameplay demo on Microsoft’s stage, and another time during its own show. Sadly, both videos were relatively short.

    For a game bringing as many radical changes to the formula as Origins, we needed to see more. The combat in particular, which looks to have been completely reworked, needed to be highlighted.

    Thankfully, the publisher not only hosted a developer demo after the press conference wrapped up, it also allowed anyone to capture footage of their playthroughs at the show floor. Which is what we have here.

    This video from IGN, which shows a vertical slice of the game through the open world, as well as some interactions with some NPCs.

    I'm still not convinced by this, I've got all the previous Assassin's Creed games, some that I've not even played yet, and they all play too similarly for me and Ifind myself losing interest after a short time. I'll keep an eye on this though.
  5. Assassin’s Creed Origins represents a thorough overhaul of Ubisoft’s flagship franchise so far, with its very genre and structure being rethought as an open world action RPG, instead of an open world action game like the series has been so far.

    Given the long development cycle, which even resulted in the series’ first annual hiatus since 2009’s Assassin’s Creed 2, expectations are high that Origins will address all the areas where the series is deficient, and deliver the kind of rethinking of the franchise that Assassin’s Creed 2 did all those years ago.

    One of those areas is optional side content- it has gotten increasingly banal and trite in recent games over the last few years, until the games have become glorified open world checklists and collectathons, more than anything else. However, with Origins, Ubisoft is promising higher quality optional content for the players to stumble upon.

    “We’re about a thousand years before the first Assassin’s Creed. For sure, we play with that and we wanted not only to create a big world but also to make sure that the world is constantly fulfilling your needs, constantly rewarding your discovery. We want people that go off the beaten path to be rewarded by a discovery, a meaning, and so we fill the world with this kind of stuff,” said Game Director Ashraf Ismail in an interview with GameReactor.

    “We have a lot of surprises in there, a lot of it is optional content, we put a lot of effort into having really high quality optional content. The idea that ancient Egypt is mysterious, that it invokes this awe feeling, we wanted to feel that in the game.

    “So, we’ve gone overboard into making sure that there’s a lot of optional content that will constantly surprise the player, show quality, show a narrative value, show the meaning of why this is the place the Brotherhood came to be. We definitely play with that, I want people to be lost in this world and to be in awe with the majesty of ancient Egypt.”

  6. With just six weeks to go until release, Ubisoft have released a new Assassins Creed Origins trailer. This trailer showcases some of the gorgeous environments and intense gameplay that players can expect to find in the full game.
  7. Assassin’s Creed Origins is looking pretty interesting and like a rather expansive open world, and it’s got a hefty old file size to go along with that as revealed by the official Xbox Store.

    The store lists the game as being approximately 42.3 gigabytes to download. That means that the physical version is likely well on its way to filling up a dual layer blu-ray disc – those run at 50 gigabytes each. It also makes for a fairly hefty download for digital fans.

  8. Ubisoft have a new trailer for Origins’ post launch DLC, before the game has even released. The new trailer outlines both the season pass exclusive content, and the free to all DLC that will be coming for the game. So far, two large DLC packs have been revealed as well as two more minor cosmetic packs, all of which will be free for season pass holders. Both of the larger packs feature new locations as well new stories and quests, they definitely look like value for money. As for the free content, these seem to be more like events and maybe even features that the developers are holding back until after the game launches. Check out the trailer below.

    Towards the end of the trailer, they revealed a timeline for DLC content which reveals that the first major pack is coming in January, whilst both minor packs are coming before then, so you have until next year to decide on where to pick up the Season Pass without missing out, check it out below.
