Assassin’s Creed Origins is an action-adventure video game developed by Ubisoft Montreal and published by Ubisoft. It is the tenth major instalment in the Assassin’s Creed series and the successor to 2015’s Assassin’s Creed Syndicate. It was released worldwide for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on October 27, 2017.
The game is set in Egypt during the near end of the Ptolemaic period (49-47 BC) which is the oldest history in the series and recounts the secret fictional history of real-world events. The story explores the origins of the conflict between the Assassin Brotherhood, who fight to ensure the survival of freedom, and the Order of the Ancients, also known as the Templar Order, who desire peace through the forced imposition of order.
#2: The Lens of Essential Experience
the new combat system in Assassin’s Creed Origins creates a lot of new ways to deal with enemies, but basically, it is an action-adventure stealth game. Thus, the essential experience of the game is being stealthy and several features in the game support players pursuing that way.
For example, there are abilities that give players bonuses for stealth kills, ones that let them see the path an enemy will walk on, and ones that let them control arrows in the air for more precise headshots. Also, the player can scout an area in advance and highlight enemies by controlling a Bonelli’s eagle named Senu.
#6: The Lens of Curiosity
Assassin’s Creed Origins‘ map is so large it takes almost three hours to traverse it at a walking pace, and the game is full of hidden places to discover. Moreover, since the view that the game shows us is so realistic, it encourages players to go to some places and see for themselves. Also, the more the player roam freely on Egypt, the more question marks which represent that there are somethings worth doing at those locations appear on the map. They are like chocolates in a box, and the player has to go there to know the flavour of them.
#9: The Lens of The Elemental Tetrad
The Egypt that has been crafted is surely one of the most beautiful game worlds ever created. Every aspect of the environment has been crafted with such painstaking attention to detail. Every part of the world players explore would have their full attention. When I played this game, every town I encountered, every swamp I passed through, every pyramid I conquered, everything felt so perfectly placed and authentic.
Assassin’s Creed Origins is playable on Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. The game was developed using the AnvilNext 2.0 Game Engine which is capable of generating structures in a flexible and automatic manner while following specific design rules and templates. However, There was quite a number of bugs at launch enough to hamper the player’s gaming experience.
The most outstanding feature in mechanics is the revised combat mechanics. Previous titles in the Assassin’s Creed series used a “paired animation system” which was a series of predetermined animations based on player inputs and scripted AI movements. Now Origins uses a “hit-box system”. When the player wields a weapon, they will strike at whatever is in range. Thus, the player should learn the attributes of individual weapons.
The player takes on the role of a Medjay named Bayek and his wife Aya. They work to protect the people of the Ptolemaic Kingdom during a time of widespread upheaval. Bayek’s role as a Medjay brings him and Aya into contact with the secretive forces manipulating historic events and into becoming the first Assassins. Origins tries to start a new journey in its long and storied history, but the story isn’t well distributed.
