As beloved as the series is, new additions the Assassin’s Creed games can sometimes be a hit or miss. But something about Assassin’s Creed: Origins seems to really be taking the interest of fans – and rightfully so!
Set in Egypt and going way back in time to tell the story of the brotherhood, it already seems that just by that alone, we’re in for a pretty amazing story line.
At Gamescom, we were treated to an all new trailer and it goes from 0-100 real fast! One second, you get to enjoy the gorgeous environment and get a sneak peak into the life of a pharaoh. And then, an arrow comes spiralling out of nowhere and kills the pharaoh in a matter of seconds. Our protagonist comes out of hiding, fighting the stunned guards skillfully with arrows, knives fists.
All the while, the overall tone of the scene is set perfectly thanks to Leonard Cohen’s ‘You Want It Darker’. Fans might have had to wait quite a while longer than most installments in the series, but by the looks of this new trailer I definitely think it’ll be worth the wait.
The game is set to come out this October on PS4 and Xbox One which is coming up fast – so watch the trailer below and let us what you think in the comments below!
