Journey into Ancient Egypt, the most mysterious place in History, during a crucial period that will shape the world. Discover the secrets behind the Great Pyramids, forgotten myths, the last pharaohs, and - engraved in long-lost hieroglyphics - the origin story of the Assassin’s Brotherhood.

For the last four years, the team behind the acclaimed Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag has been focused on crafting a new beginning for the franchise. Fight in a completely new way where you transition seamlessly between unique ranged and melee weapons and take on multiple enemies at once. Choose your assassin skills while exploring the full country of Ancient Egypt, engaging into multiple quests and gripping stories along a journey that will change civilization.

EXPERIENCE THE MYSTERIES OF ANCIENT EGYPT- Uncover lost tombs, explore the pyramids, and discover the secrets of mummies, the gods, and the last pharaohs.

AN ORIGIN STORY- Start here, at the very beginning, with the never-before-told origin story of Assassin’s Creed. You are Bayek, a protector of Egypt whose personal story will lead to the creation of the Assassin’s Brotherhood.

EMBRACE ACTION-RPG- Experience a completely new way to fight as you loot and use over one hundred weapons with different characteristics and rarities. Enjoy deep RPG progression mechanics, choose your preferred abilities and challenge your skills against unique and powerful bosses.

EACH QUEST IS A MEMORABLE ADVENTURE- Pick and tackle quests at your own will and pace – each of them tells an intense and emotional story full of colorful characters and meaningful objectives.

EXPLORE A FULL COUNTRY- From deserts to lush oasis, from the Mediterranean Sea to the tombs of Giza, fight your way against dangerous factions and wild beasts as you explore this gigantic and unpredictable land.

Assassin’s Creed returns with the introduction of Origins, the 10th edition of the award-winning games. Here, the series gets a lick of paint and the biggest changes ever seen in the franchise. Couple this with Microsoft’s stunning Xbox One and it’s shaping up to be an incredible addition to the franchise.

Travel to Ancient Egypt as Assassin’s Creed visits the land of pharaohs and pyramids for the first time. Set in the Ptolemaic period, Origins looks into the start of a conflict between the Brotherhood of Assassins. Their sole purpose is to bring peace by the promotion of liberty, whereas the predecessors to the Templar Order desire peace through sinister means.

Utilising the very same third-person perspective that has now become synonymous with the franchise, gamers in Origins will have to complete a series of quests in a unique and gorgeously realised open-world environment in which you can traverse pyramids and the locality on horseback and interact with wild animals.

Speaking of which, a new feature to Origins does away with the ‘eagle vision’ mode that has become a mainstay of the franchise. Instead, players will have access to a dedicated eagle companion called Senu. Using Senu, players are then able to scout locations for enemies from the sky, alerting your character to their presence.

Elsewhere, gamers can tame and train a selection of wild animals to then use as companions. When it comes to gameplay, Origins will see a return of tomb raiding, as well as naval battles and underwater exploration to the franchise, though climbing taller structures will be limited in a departure for the series.

So, with a beautiful new location to explore, Origins also sees a new combat system coming into the fray. The ‘hit-box’ system as it’s been described will allow players to strike at whatever is in range, whether that be antagonists, animals or solid objects. When it comes to hitting enemies, gamers can now assault a specific body part or miss entirely, giving a more realistic fighting style.
After release day, players will be able to explore the vast open world of Assassin’s Creed Origins with no objectives, taking in the sights and sounds of Ancient Egypt without worrying about completing missions and battling enemies. An added element to this is the ability to undertake guided tours that take in important aspects of Egyptian history.

Assassins Creed Origins FAQs

Are there similar gameplay mechanics to previous Assassin's Creed games?
While still retaining the Assassin's Creed feel that has made the series so popular, Origins is a huge departure from what preceded it. New combat mechanics have been introduced as well as the vast open world that allows players to undertake many activities outside of the main campaign.

Is the game open world?
The setting of Ancient Egypt is completely open for exploration outside of the main single player campaign. Players are able to discover the histories of the period and take on wild crocodiles while sailing down the Nile among other activities. This is similar in style to Grand Theft Auto and is a departure from what Assassin's Creed fans have been used to.

Where is the game set?
For the first time in the Assassin's Creed series, the story moves to the setting of Ancient Egypt. Players assume the role of Bayek, an Egyptian sheriff who tries to protect people from a series of threats.

Can Assassin's Creed: Origins be played at 4k?
Yes. Players with an Xbox One X and the appropriate television set-up can play Assassin's Creed Origins in gloriously crisp 4k for an impressively graphical experience.
