Comedian Conan O'Brien plays Assassin's Creed Origins with quarterback Aaron Rogers
A few years ago, famous American comedian Conan O'Brien launched a segment on his late-night talk show called Clueless Gamer. The feature followed Conan as he played various games and rated them on a nonsensical scale
What started off as a joke has since grown and now many game developers want to actively showcase their products on his show. While the benefits of this are questionable given the fact that Conan doesn't really like or know how to play them, the results are nonetheless hilarious to watch. This time around he's joined by American football player Aaron Rogers who recently broke his collarbone. That piece of information plays an important role in the video.
The video is an absolute riot because Conan manages to accidentally trigger God Mode where the main character flops around like a bird. God Mode is a developer-only mode which many game makers use to test out their products. Secondly, he manages to find a few glitches when riding a chariot and somehow manages to get stuck in a pillar.
Assassin's Creed Origins is a fresh start for the series in many ways because it adds proper role-playing mechanics to the genre. Assassin's Creed Origins takes place in Ancient Egypt, a land of majesty and intrigue, but one that is disappearing in a ruthless fight for power. You play as a Bayek, the first Assassin, who must unveil dark secrets and forgotten myths as you go back to the one founding moment: the origins of the Assassin's Brotherhood. We finally learn how it all began.
Assassin's Creed Origins launched today, October 27, 2017, on Xbox One, Windows PC and PlayStation 4. Be sure to check it out at retailers and look forward to our review. The game is also getting enhanced for Xbox One X.
