Summary

Some gamers might feel a little long in the tooth when they realise that it's been a full 10 years since Altair first introduced us to the world of Assassin's Creed, but here we are with the 10th major game in the series (something like the 20th, if you include all the spin-offs). To take us into the series's second decade, Ubisoft Montreal (specifically the team behind Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag) is taking us back to before it all began with Assassin's Creed Origins.

Players will journey back to Ancient Egypt to play as Bayek, a protector of Egypt who will get caught up in the sweep of history and who will ultimately go on to for the Assassin's Brotherhood. It is, in other words, the birth of a legend.

The headline here, of course, is the vast open world of Egypt that players get to explore. Origins is set in a time when the great wonders of the ancient world such as the pyramids and the Sphynx were already old and the Egyptian way of life was becoming marred by the arrival of Ceasar. This is the playground that Bayek inhabits, ranging from the Mediterranean Sea to the tombs of Giza, from lush oases to harsh deserts.

The way you'll approach this world has changed, too, with Ubisoft leaning harder into action RPG elements to level up, loot, choose their abilities and customize their own deadly assassin. Combat has been changed, too, and shifted away from rapid button hits toward a subtler model that favours the precise timing of blocks, dodges and rolls so that you can create an opening through which to strike.

Travel back to watch everything you love about Assassin's Creed being born and shape the course of history in the process!
