Assassin's Creed Origins Announced

While Assassin's Creed: Origins is primarily supposed to be Bayek's story, certain parts of the campaign will be played through the eyes of other characters.

Ubisoft managed to rectify their standing with the media with Assassin's Creed: Syndicate by introducing a playable female Assassin in the game from start to finish, but it turned out to be the worst selling mainline entry in the series.

Assassin's Creed Origins' story is set in Ptolemaic Egypt and follows Bayek, a Medjay, as he works to protect his people from threats. The Assassin's Creed: Origins trailer showcases the game's ancient Egyptian storyline - one that explores the origins of a group of clandestine assassins. Assassin's Creed Origins has taken this to the next level with at least 5 special editions, one of which costs a whopping £700/$800. The set comes with a 28.7-inch statue of Bayek and his eagle Senu, a world map, four lithographs, and more. It has since been announced (at E3) that there will be multiple Assassin's Creed: Origins Collector's Editions, including the Dawn of the Creed Legendary Collector's Edition, the Dawn of the Creed Collector's Edition and the Gods Collector's Edition.
