Assassin’s Creed Origins AI “Carries Stress”, Says Game Director

Ubisoft skipped Assassin’s Creed last year to reinvent the franchise and now the studio has revealed that Assassin’s Creed Origins AI can be stressed which is one of the features that contribute to making a more immersive gameplay experience.

Spaking with Loomer at PAX West 2017, game director Ashraf Ismail revealed that Assassin’s Creed Origins AI will carry stress instead of just forgetting what happened. He explained while describing a vertical slice of the game in which some raiders stormed a fort which woke up the commander along with the soldiers.

The fight ends. Some die, some escape. Instead of going right back to sleep, the idea is that he’s [the commander] carrying a lot of stress at this point. The AI carries stress. The idea is he cannot go back to sleep so he starts kind of roaming his own fort and he goes to one of the towers and it looks like he’s really doing a lookout. And it was just this moment where it’s like these guys are really living.

According to the game director, such unplanned events help players to complete the assassination rather easily.

Also, Assassin’s Creed Origins ESRB rating has been revealed. The game has been given a mature rating for blood, gore, drug reference, intense violence, nudity, sexual content, strong language and use of alcohol.

All of the previous titles in the Assassin’s Creed franchise have been given the Mature rating, however, Assassin’s Creed Origins ESRB rating description suggests that it may be a little more adult compared to the previous titles in the Assassin’s Creed franchise.

Also, Ubisoft has confirmed that Tombs will be returning in Assassin’s Creed Orings and this time they are based on the real life tombs.

Assassin’s Creed Origins is an upcoming action RPG in development at Ubisoft and is scheduled to launch on October 27, 2017, for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
