The Assassin’s Creed game franchise has always been one of my favourites. It has everything I love in a game; an open world but there’s still a story to follow, satisfying stunts, a mixture of stealth and combat, adventure and some stunning visuals!
Ezio Auditore’s story is everything Assassin’s Creed should be and unfortunately, the most recent games just don’t live up to this greatness. However, I think Assassin’s Creed Origins may change this.
Ubisoft has just released the first trailer and gameplay for Origins at E3 2017 and it looks stunning. What do you think?
Here are the 5 reasons why I think this game will be up there with the best!
1. The time period
Origins is set in Ancient Egypt; what an amazing time period to explore! The visuals look absolutely stunning and there is so much to discover. One thing that makes assassins creed so exciting is the ability to delve deep into eras from the past. Origins’ time period has to be one of the most interesting and extraordinary places to have an adventure.
2. A year’s break
Last year was the first year since the first AC game that Ubisoft didn’t release a new one, which means they’ve had more time to spend perfecting Origins. The most recent releases were a bit of a mess due to being rushed to be completed for the usual yearly release date and suffered from a lot of glitches. Hopefully taking an extra year to work on this one means it’ll be of a high quality with minimal problems!
3. The developers
The team behind Origins is the same team who were behind the three Ezio Auditore games and Black Flag. Ubisoft Montreal is back for Origins and if those four games are anything to go by, the new AC is going to be impressive!
4. The wild beasts
Lions, hippos, crocodiles and giant snakes – the wildlife is not lacking! Not only will you have to watch out for your enemies, you’ll have to make sure you don’t get eaten by a crocodile – awesome!
5. The New ‘Eagle Vision’
We now literally have eagle vision! Origins has introduced an eagle companion who can fly over camps and spy on your enemies. The new and interesting feature fits perfectly with the game’s concept and expands the eagle vision to a new height.
As you can tell, I’m pretty excited about this game. It’ll be released on 27/10/2017 (only 4 months to go!) and will be available on Xbox One, PS4 and PC. In the meantime, take a look at the official gameplay below and let me know what you think!
