Step back in time to assassinate
Assassin's Creed Origins is a third person action, adventure and stealth game in which you must undertake a variety of missions in a storyline that is set in the dust of Ptolemaic Egypt.
Published by Ubisoft, Assassin's Creed Origins is the latest instalment in the popular Assassin's Creed series which follows Assassin's Creed Syndicate of 2015. The game offers an open world design that allows you to roam freely through a virtual world, in this case one that is full of pyramids, hieroglyphs and sphinxes. Set in Egypt in the period after it had fallen to Alexander the Great, the game blends ancient Egyptian imagery with Greek and even Roman influences. You can walk, ride on a camel, take to horseback or even use a boat to get around, as preferred. In an update to previous games in the series, there are not endless tall structures that you need to climb in order to unlock areas of the map. In addition, an innovative reaction-based system has replaced the previous one for combat situations. Fans of naval conflict will be pleased to discover that this element returns in 'Origins'. Furthermore, there is the chance to engage in tomb raiding to find useful items and treasure.
