Assassin’s Creed Origins gameplay was shown at E3 and new details have been revealed regarding the game. The protagonist is a Magi, a protector of Egypt. We have seen that there is a skill tree included in the game mechanics. There are three difference classes to choose from, Hunter, Seer and Warrior. You can add points accordingly.
You can mix things up according to how you want to play the game. The abilities section is more of a graph than a skill tree so you can add abilities from all three categories. This is also the first time that we are seeing shields in the game. Weapon crafting is also an important aspect of the game. If you want to deal high damage and critical hits then you will need to craft special weapons.
Talking about weapons there are 8 different types of melee weapons and 4 kinds of bows in the game. We also saw fire arrows in the Assassin’s Creed Origins and it they can be used to set objects and enemies on fire. There is a new fighting system and you will increase adrenaline as you fight. This will help you kill enemies quicker and more effectively with powerful moves.
The world is alive, NPCs, as well as animals in the game, have needs and you will find that animals will hunt, look for shelter and water in the game. The same is the case for other characters in the game. Fishermen, for example, will catch fish and go to the market to sell their catch of the day. We also saw boats in Assassin’s Creed Origins.
Boats are a much-welcomed addition to the game. Egypt is known for the Nile and I think it was important for there to be some form of traveling by water. Developers talked about the importance of wildlife in the game and that can be seen in depth in the gameplay. We can see that the animals not only attack you but NPCs and other animals as well.
You will also need to capture enemy encampments in order to proceed in the game. Enemies will have different levels and you will need to match those levels in order to kill them and take the encampments for yourself. These are all the new things that we were able to catch in the Assassin’s Creed Origins gameplay.
Let us know what you think about the Assassin’s Creed Origins gameplay shown at the Electronic Entertainment Expo 2017 and whether or not you are going to buy the game.
