Assassin’s Creed Origins – On Steam 27th October (€59,99)

The series of Assassin’s Creed became favorite among gamers worldwide, ever since their start. Through the years it gathered such an audience, that its release on 27th October is more expected than this year’s Halloween Sale on Steam. People are willing to buy the latest technology, just to get the most out of games like this one.

It continues the legacy and by the trailers and other information that we could already see, I can say that the game looks promising and won’t disappoint us for sure! The graphics, open world, physics and everything about this game is awesome. Take a quick look at how the game looks like, being played on Xbox One X in 4K made by IGN.

Concept and story

The story behind Assassin’s Creed Origins is to show how the “Brotherhood” was created. It takes place during the time when Cleopatra ascended the throne in 49BCE and is center around Bayek, the last Medjay, after he has left the village where he was born, Siwa, to pursue a mystery of his own. This pursuing will take him across Ancient Egypt as the journey will be full of creatively developed missions and the whole experience plays a role in the birth of the Assassin Brotherhood.

A new force called the Order of the Ancients is controlling Egypt through Ptolemy XIII’s rule. Ptolemy XIII is the younger brother of Cleopatra and is referred to as ‘the Boy-King’. Cleopatra and Bayek need to stop his rule which they do with the help of Julius Caesar.This game at moments will include modern-day elements, which will be found anywhere along the interesting storyline.

Bayek – the main character of the game.

What’s new?

The Assassin’s Creed Origins map is located in Lower Egypt and eastern Libya, which is open world (like Skyrim) and could be explored without any loading screen. Cool additions have been added to the game such as major cities famous for that time – Giza, Cyrene, Alexandria, and Memphis, as well as other small villages and settlements on the delta of River Nile.Many things differ from other Assassin’s Creed games, like the mini-map which is no longer in the game but is replaced by a compass bar, that points the player’s required destination (similar to Skyrim’s way of navigating).

Another change is the companion of Bayek, an eagle named Senu whose “Eagle Vision” you could use to find and mark enemies and can also upgrade it to the point when Senu will start helping you with fighting or distracting enemies.Also, players can locate treasure chests, crafting resources or hidden passages. To introduce Senu thoroughly, Ubisoft decided to deprive the viewpoints of the feature as a location/target to reveal information about the surroundings but will be used for practicing the eagle’s detention capacity.

An overview from the pyramids. The game also includes creative places and there are 20 tombs that a player can explore, some of which are based on real-life and others are just made by the imagination of the developers.The tombs are full of traps and puzzles and the idea behind their completion is to find treasure and use it for your game development.

It shows interesting ideas and even exposes the concept and the way how the well-known Pyramids were built. The game is offering a lot and I am sure that gamers will get the most out of it. For the price of 59.99euro, I think that its worth and we have to admire how much Ubisoft is putting into the creation and keeping these series on top for the last couple of years.I can’t wait to get the chance to enjoy it!
