The worst kept announcement in gaming was officially revealed during the Xbox E3 conference today as Ubisoft announced the next entry in the Assassin’s Creed franchise. After skipping last year, we won’t have to wait long to get some sweet assassinations going again, as Assassin’s Creed Origins releases on October 27th.
The franchise is going back in time, way back to ancient Egypt and the beginning of the Assassin’s brotherhood.
In Origins, you’ll play as Bayek who was described as being like an “Egyptian sheriff.”
In the gameplay shown, Bayek returned to home town of Siwa to kill a false oracle called Medunamum.
As you can see in the gameplay below, Origins features a new compass system like an Elder Scrolls game instead of the traditional mini map.
There’s a controllable eagle to tag enemies and scout, and a more traditional RPG approach including legendary loot.
