The highly anticipated Assassin’s Creed Origins game will be officially launching in a few days time on October 27th, 2017 and to whet your appetite ahead of its launch, Ubisoft has released a new launch trailer entitled “Legend of the Assassin”.
Developed by Ubisoft Montreal Assassin’s Creed Origins takes you to Ancient Egypt during the Ptolemaic period and recounts the secret fictional history of real-world events. With the storyline that explores the origins of the conflict between the Brotherhood of Assassins, who fight The Order of the Ancients, forerunners to the Templar Order.
Assassin’s Creed Origins brings with it a number of new changes to the franchise including the removal of “eagle vision” mode and revised combat mechanics.
– The “eagle vision” mode, which was used by the franchise to give players the ability to scout an area by highlighting enemies and objects, will be replaced by a Bonelli’s eagle named Senu as a companion.
– Previous titles in the Assassin’s Creed series used a “paired animation system” whereby the player character would engage with an enemy and combat would be dictated by a series of predeterminted animations based on player inputs and scripted AI movements. Assassin’s Creed Origins will move to a “hit-box system”.
– When the player wields a weapon, they will strike at whatever is in range, allowing them to hit enemies directly, injure individual body parts, and creating the possibility of missing an enemy entirely. Complementing this is the way weapons fall into different categories and are rated on their damage dealt, speed and range
