With the newest entry in the highly popular Assassin’s Creed video game franchise titled Assassin's Creed Origins arriving in October, Ubisoft has released a new video exploring the world of Ancient Egypt.
The seven-minute video follows the release of a gorgeous cinematic trailer unveiled over the weekend. It features interviews with director Ashraf Ismail and historian Maxime Durand who take us on a tour of Ptolemaic Egypt (including a look at the cities of Alexandria and Memphis) with a look at the plethora of characters that will populate the world of Assassin’s Creed Origins.
Hailing from the team that gave us Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, Origins will introduce us to a new assassin in the form of one Bayek of Siwa; the hero of this video game prequel. Historical figures players will come across include: Cleopatra, Ptolemy XIII and Julius Caesar.
Assassin’s Creed Origins will arrive for Xbox One, PlayStation4, PlayStation4 Pro and PC on October 27.
