Assassin`s Creed Origins is an Action-RPG that places players into ancient Egypt following the story of Bayek, who is the last remaining member of a society known as the Medjay, and the event`s that lead up to the creation of The Brotherhood.
Kyrenaika, Alexandria & Nile Delta are among the maps that can be played. The open world of Assassin`s Creed Origins will allow player`s plenty of time and space to explore the games vast map`s for loot, quest`s challenge`s and other mischief. Player`s can utilize the environment, such as wild animal`s, to distract enemies and make certain aspects of mission`s easier to complete. Bayek`s primary scouting tool, his Eagle Senu, is a vital feature in allowing players to evade sight and to recon missions before undertaking them.
Assassin`s Creed Origins introduces a new Combat System that has been redesigned around hitboxe`s and positioning to allow for more control in combat, however enemies have also been tweaked to be more responsive to your play style. A new gauge system allows player`s to build up special attack`s for use in those close call`s.

Improved game mechanics, interactive environment`s, and a new hitmarker combat system look`s to have refreshed and improved the series and it has opened up the potential of the newest Assassin`s Creed.
With Photo Mode there should be a fresh wave of Assassin`s artwork shared across social media, this type of feature has worked so well for games such as GTAV with its thriving Snapmatic community, ACO`s could potentially be just as interesting. Release Day will see the Nomads Bazaar event as an opening set of quests for players to get the ball rolling, with many more to follow.
