A new cinematic trailer for Assassin’s Creed: Origins has released as Ubisoft gears up for the game’s October launch. Watch as the world of Ancient Egypt turns to sand in this poignant promotion.
The trailer arrives on the tail of another announcement for Origins. Plotted for early 2018, a free update to the game will allow for players to traverse its world in Discovery Tour mode. In this mode, players can explore without fear of combat or plot interruptions as they take guided tours from historians and Egyptologists. For as many Assassin’s Creed titles as there are—stretching across centuries of world history— Ubisoft’s never solely focused on teaching the history of the games’ settings.
The base game of Assassin’s Creed: Origins focuses on the origin story of the Assassin’s Brotherhood. You play as Bayek, the last of an elite force called the Medjay, facing a struggle against elites and secret societies. It’s up to you to save the people of Egypt from tyranny.
Assassin’s Creed: Origins releases October 27 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
