True to the numerous rumours preceding it, "Assassin's Creed Origins" is set in ancient Egypt, expanding on the historical action franchise's concept with a number of tweaks to an established and successful formula.
After taking a leave of absence in 2016, "Assassin's Creed" is back with a dive into Egyptian history in "Assassin's Creed Origins."
Players will assume the identity of Bayek, an eagle carrying warrior, whose exploits lead to the foundation of a secret faction that drives the "Assassin's Creed" narrative forward.

Set for launch the week of October 27 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC, "Assassin's Creed Origins" was announced at 2017's Electronic Entertainment Expo, during a June 11 media briefing for Microsoft's Xbox consoles.
The new game represents a reworking of the "Assassin's Creed" formula, as quest locations are made more contextual and intuitive, combat is reworked to focus on offensive and defensive technique, and scope is expanded to provide a larger and more varied region to roam around.
Two previews were made immediately available following the Xbox Briefing appearance.
