2017's Assassin's Creed Origins has officially been revealed, bringing with it a new assassin, a new time period, and more for the longrunning franchise. It will arrive on Xbox One and PS4 October 27, 2017.
As previous leaks have suggested, Origins will take place in ancient Egypt. Creative Director of Ubisoft Jean Guesdo explained the Egypt setting, calling it “3,000 years of history and mystery.”
Origins will feature a new protagonist, Bayek, an “Egyptian sheriff.” Bayek is coming back to Siwa, his home town, to kill a fake oracle named Medunamun. A gameplay demo saw new elements to the series such as a controllable eagle and an upgrade system.
