“Assassin’s Creed Origins” is undoubtedly one of 2018 AAA video games that fans excitedly look forward to this year. That is because of its unique ancient Ptolemaic Egypt setting, impeccable storyline, and superb features that fans witnessed so far at E3 2017 in June.

That giant snake intrigues fans

But there is something in that epic gameplay trailer that interestingly drew some intrigues among longtime players of the AC series – the appearance of that humongous snake as main protagonist Bayek’s enemy in that preview.

This has roused doubts that while the franchise had dwelled in historical events in its previous titles, the new “Assassin’s Creed Origins” game could now have sorts of fantasy fiction elements in it that is a bit too much to stay true to the series' lore.

The tease of the gigantic snake, in fact, blew the minds of fans and #Ubisoft received tons of questions about it. The studio had to explain why it is there or what is its relevance in the game.

A credible experience

Creative director Ashraf Ismail revealed via OPM UK that the game offers a credible experience. He reiterated that the series has its lore and things to assume as part of the brand, however, he emphasized the team just doesn’t go for some random high fantasy.

He assured that there is a good reason why that snake is in the game, although, he said he doesn’t want to spoil that part. With that, he said that the next title is, without a doubt, an authentic and credible experience.

No plans of Switch version

Nintendo may have reaped an enormous success with the release of #Switch as the new portable gaming console in the gaming industry.

Even huge video games such as Bethesda’s “Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim” is in the works specifically for this platform.

However, for Ubisoft [VIDEO], it does not have plans to launch the 2018 AC title on Switch, at some point down the line. Ismail said this firmly in his latest interview with Gaming Bolt.

According to the creative director, Origins will hit Xbox One, PS4, Xbox One X, PS4 Pro, and PC on October 27, 2017. Ubisoft takes a pass on launching the game on Switch, so, that is crystal clear right there.

Ismail didn’t delve into specifics as to why Ubisoft is not open to the opportunity of releasing the game on Nintendo's latest console. Seemingly, it goes without saying that it has similar reason with other game developers.

The Switch has a different setup compared to Xbox One or PS4 and it has lower specs that might fail to support video games that are as big as the upcoming “Assassin’s Creed Origins.” #Assassin Creed
