Assassin’s Creed Origins will take place in Egypt and Ubisoft has been using Egyptian hieroglyphs in the marketing and it seems that these hieroglyphs have hidden messages that curious fans have decoded. Assassin’s Creed fan page, Access the Animus, is the one to decode these hieroglyphs in Assassin’s Creed Origins’ marketing.
There are six sentences in the decoded Assassin’s Creed Origins messages. The first two sentences are the franchise’s motto, “We work in the dark, to serve the light. Nothing is true, everything is permitted.” However, the rest of the Assassin’s Creed Origins hidden message seems to be a prayer of some sort.
We work in the dark to serve the light.
Nothing is true, everything is permitted.
Ra, protect me and grant me perpetual wealth.
Help us possessing fertility along with remuneration.
May no offspring escape their share of wealth.
May you endlessly triumph and go forth.
Assassin’s Creed franchise has been often criticized for being jam-packed with collectibles that add nothing meaningful to the game and it seems that Ubisoft has listened to the feedback, as game director, Ashraf Ismail has confirmed that they are keeping “Floating Collectibles” out of the game.
Not only is Egypt a place you want to explore because it’s a world of unique locations but by taking the time to go there you’re going to find something that has value for you, whether that’s lore or gameplay. We’re staying far away from what we call ‘floating collectibles’. We want things in the world to have meaning.
Furthermore, game director has also confirmed that all Assassin’s Creed Origins console versions will be using dynamic resolution for a stable experience.
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.
