#Ubisoft has finally unveiled its new game the “Assassin's: Creed Origins” at the #E3 2017. The developer revealed that it will be released on Xbox One, PS4, and PC on October 27. The new game has been set in Egypt and the player would be assuming the role of Bayek, who is the last Medjay. Bayek is basically like an Egyptian policeman who has been given the responsibility to protect the people from local as well as foreign threats.

As the game’s title indicates, the storyline of the game traces the origin of the brotherhood and how they banded together to form the Assassin’s Creed. The game also shows the Bayek fight against the forces that are “corrupting ancient Egypt.” The same struggles apparently leads to the formation of the Assassin’s Creed.

Gameplay

The game involves several locations spanning from the Mediterranean Sea to the tombs of Giza. However, the developers have concentrated more on the cities of Alexandria and Memphis. The game was in development for a period of four years as Ubisoft was focusing on the completing “Assassin’s Creed: IV Black Flag.” In its press release, the game developer calls the new title a “brand new vision” as the series will include RPG-action elements such as loot drops, leveling up, along with various different customization abilities.

The gameplay which was shown to the press during the conference shows that players will have to sneak around a lot to progress. The gameplay also includes bow and arrow action sequences apart from showing how the hawk detection can be put to work, once the players start playing.

While using the hawk detection an overhead avian spy will come to assist the player to help him/her get an idea of the land structure and figure out their next moves. Unlike the previous Assassin’s Creeds games, the new one won’t feature traditional towers in the game structure. Thus, the hawk detection will be an important tool in the gameplay.

New features and tools

Apart from the special tools, in the “#Assassin's Creed: Origins” – in terms of combat couples – the sword and knife play at once. However, the combat sequencing and moves look like they are inspired from the “The Witcher 3” and the “Dark Souls.”

The combat in the new Ubisoft game features much more mobility apart from different types of combats. Ubisoft claims that it has upgraded the combat to make fighting multiple enemies at once easier. In a blog post, the developers stated that the new game will be diversifying from the traditional sandbox structure and will introduce NPCs, which will feature their own night and day cycles. The NPCs will also come with bandits and wildlife on the prowl, and lakes that they can swim or sail in.
