Bayek faces quite a few challenges in Assassin’s Creed Origins, Ubisoft’s first Assassin’s Creed game since Assassin’s Creed Syndicate in 2015. Aside from random side quests to rescue dogs and raid pyramids, he has to deal with shadowy foes plotting the downfall of Ancient Egypt.
In fact, the latest cinematic trailer for the game even hints at him failing. But don’t worry – it kind of also hints at the Brotherhood of Assassins being formed in the process.
It works so just go with it.
Assassin’s Creed Origins features a number of changes from previous games. Along with a bigger emphasis on RPG-like progression and loot, combat is now more hack and slash oriented as opposed to counter-based. The world is much larger than before with multi-step quests and plenty of space to explore. If that sounds like your thing, then Assassin’s Creed Origins will be out on October 27th for Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
