The launch trailer focuses on all aspects of gameplay and is rather action-packed. It looks like the game contains everything from political intrigue to deception and betrayal. However, what's most striking about the title are its visuals. The game is striking, and should serve as a visual showcase for the power of the Xbox One X.
Assassin's Creed Origins is a new beginning as you take on epic enemies with a whole new combat system. There's also loot and other elements which are hallmarks of the role-playing genre. The game's season pass expands the game by introducing new areas and missions. However, there's a lot of lot of free content coming which Ubisoft hopes will keep players coming back for more. For example, just like Destiny and Destiny 2, there are daily challenges which may task you with killing a certain enemy.
The Assassin's Creed franchise definitely needed a shift in direction because the previous games, especially Assassin's Creed Unity and Assassin's Creed Syndicate, lacked thrill. For some, the inching towards the modern era caused Assassin's Creed to lose their majesty and wonder. The Ancient Egyptian setting is definitely a breath of fresh air and not only is it good for Ubisoft because it has captivated a lot of players, but it's also good for fans because they've been requesting it for a while.
Assassin's Creed Origins launches this week on October 27, 2017 for Xbox One, PS4, and PC. The base version is priced at $59.99. For those worried about loot crates, be sure to check out how they work here.
