Assassin's Creed Origins details and release date leaked

June 10, 2017 1 min read

Scans of an interview with creative director Jean Guesdon from an upcoming issue of Game Informer magazine has leaked online, revealing a handful of significant details including the release date—October 27 2017 on Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4. It will be supported on Scorpio as well, though it isn't clear if that version will also release on the same day or not. Work on Origins began after Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag (by the same team), and before Assassin's Creed Unity.

You play as a man in his 30's named Bayek, a former Medjay (sheriff) during the rise and reign of Cleopatra VII. The other playable protagonist is being kept secret for now. The game features brand new fighting and AI systems, mountable camels, and ancient tomb raiding. The compass is relaced with an Elder Scrolls-esque arrow on the top of the screen, the sprint button is replaced with analogue speed depending on how much you push the stick, and everything is climbable (think Breath of the Wild) while free running buttons were removed.
