A new trailer for Assassin’s Creed: Origins provides a glimpse into the game’s plotline as well as the protagonist’s motivations. “Birth of the Brotherhood” further introduces Bayek, the last of an elite warrior group, and his journey in establishing the Brotherhood of Assassins. Watch it below.
The trailer christens Bayek, known by his people as a Medjay, as the protector of Egypt’s true Pharaoh. Set in the Ptolemaic era, Egypt is under threat from forces both present and unknown. Whether its invasion by the Romans or upheaval from societies within, Bayek must hone his skills and “become an instrument of justice and freedom”.
Full of history, conspiracy, and everything else Assassin’s Creed fans have come to love, Origins releases October 27 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
