It looks like Ubisoft picked veteran voice #Actress Alix Wilton Regan to play a key role in “Assassin’s Creed #Origins.” The voice actress herself revealed this awesome news on her Twitter account.

In her latest tweet, Regan said that she is utterly happy to inform everyone that she performs the role of Aya, a female assassin in the upcoming prequel of the “Assassin’s Creed" series.

Notably, this is not Regan’s first foray into the realm of video games.

The voice actress and model also worked on previously released titles such as “Dragon Age: Origins,” “Mass Effect 3,” “Forza Horizon,” and others.

Ubisoft ironing out kinks

Meanwhile, “Assassin’s Creed Origins” is fast approaching its official release date on October 27. So far, the playable build looks great [VIDEO]with its intricate re-imagining of the Ptolemaic Egypt and its mythos. As an open-world action RPG, the gameplay definitely looks superb.

Even before its public outing, the next AC title has been receiving praise from the gaming community and critics alike. On the other hand, both camps notice the game’s limitation in terms of facial animations, which do not look great in the game’s trailers.

In his interview at PAX West 2017, game director Ashraf Ismail was asked about the issue on facial animations.

He explained that the playable build does not completely synchronize with the current development work [VIDEO] at the studio.

It means that while they’re showing off some stuff and players are trying out the demos, a large pool of talented, passionate people simultaneously work on polishing the game. Ismail further said that there are like hundreds or even thousands of changes and improvements made in the game, day in and day out prior to its official launch.

Content is complete

Moreover, the game director mentioned that the content is already complete and has been complete for a long time. He also said that it is more important for Ubisoft to see a playable game instead of putting stuff on hold due to small issues on the cinematics or facial animations are not as good yet.

Ismail assured the fans that the studio took the feedback from E3 in June and currently, that is “the state of the project.” The team is tuning and polishing the game.

He also emphasized that the studio has sufficient time to continue ironing out the kinks.

It will keep doing so until it meets the standards in time for the official release.

The villains
