Ubisoft’s upcoming action-adventure video game, “Assassin's Creed: Origins,” is set in ancient Egypt, and it seems pretty sizable. The official Xbox Store revealed that the file size of the video game is as hefty as the studio claimed it to be.

According to Gaming Bolt, game enthusiasts will have to free up their hard disk space of up 42.3 gigabytes if they would like to have the tenth major installment in the Assassin's Creed series on their consoles. The “Assassin's Creed: Origins” video game would be several times larger compared to the sixth major installment, Black Flag.

The install size of the video game might be larger for those who are planning to have the “Assassin's Creed: Origins” for Microsoft’s upcoming Xbox One X, as the gaming system features 4K resolution. The video game company has yet to announce if the game’s PlayStation 4 and PC versions are around the same size, Comic Book reported. Nonetheless, gamers do not seem too surprised with the file size of the game, considering the features that it is expected to showcase once Ubisoft finally makes the game available for download.

Fans are recommended to look out for the game’s pre-download opportunities since titles with download sizes as huge as Origins typically allow game enthusiasts to do so before the launch.

This is to ensure that gamers will definitely enjoy the hard work that the video game developers put into each title.

Game’s main character

Ubisoft’s new action-adventure video game features the main protagonist, Bayek. The main character is assigned to keep the country safe from opponents who are striving to overthrow it. Aside from that, the “Assassin's Creed: Origins” will come along with a Discovery Tour mode, which is a non-combat mode that allows gamers to explore and learn about Egypt’s history.

Discovery Tour mode

Ubisoft released the game's new video trailer that showcased Ancient Egypt’s beauty all the while providing hints about its impending end. The Discovery Tour mode will turn the entire video game into a virtual museum. Ubisoft has employed Egyptologists and historians to create the Ancient Egyptian setting.

Ubisoft made it known that the game will offer dozens of tours, all of which will focus on different topics. The Discovery Tour mode will cover topics like the pyramids and mummification, among others. The studio is expected to release the game on October 27, while the Tour mode will be available sometime next year.
