Assassin’s Creed Origins has been officially confirmed by the developers, Ubisoft. At Microsoft’s E3 2017 press conference, Ubisoft took to stage and confirmed what we already know, Assassin’s Creed is going to Egypt. Moreover, Assassin’s Creed Origins will support Xbox One X.
Supporting Xbox One X means that Assassin’s Creed Origins will run at native 4K. Moreover, the title is going to support HDR. The gameplay trailer shown during the event was pre-alpha so changes are expected. Ubisoft has completely overhauled the Assassin’s Creed experience. There is no longer a mini map and instead, they added a navigation bar.
Character customization and upgrades are available via ability points. The combat system is overhauled as well. Our lead character Bayek can dodge, parry, deflect and even control his arrows similar to the remote Batarang in Batman. More interestingly, there is now a crafting system but how will deep will it remain to be seen. You can check out the new Assassin’s Creed trailer above.
The gameplay confirmed most of the rumors about the new Assassin’s Creed game. Assassin’s Creed Origins is releasing on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox One S, Xbox One X, and PC on October 27.
Meanwhile, Xbox One X is releasing on November 7 with the most diverse line-up of games, according to Microsoft. Ubisoft is expected to discuss more of Origins tomorrow during its Electronic Entertainment Expo press event. Stay tuned for more on Origins, Xbox One X, and E3 2017.
