New things for a masterpiece
After a stale couple years in the Assassin's Creed series. The developers at Ubisoft thought it was time for a change in the way they make Assassin Creed games. What a better place to start a new idea in the series than in a massive open area of Egypt.
It feels so fresh/hating the real world
In Assassin’s Creed: Origins its 49 BCE, you play a type of bodyguard called a Medjay. The name of the Medjay is Bayek. As he’s protecting the Siwa Oasis (an important person) there is an attack and abducted by a large group by masked men. This happens when your son is with you as well, so your son is with you when you are abducted, so you are both trapped. After escaping, your son gets injured by an attack and dies. Since then, you have been on the hunt for the masked men for over a year after trying to leave your past behind by exiling yourself into the desert. This is where the story starts to hit off with you searching for all of the masked men to find out that there is a cult. You meet the mother of Khemu, you hunt down the rest of the cult. You also meet Cleopatra, so if you are interested in history, these games are definitely for you as in every game from the Original Assassin’s Creed to Assassin’s Creed Syndicate. They all have a bit of history in them what you’ll catch if you enjoy learning about history. The only thing though is it still goes to the present day and is just kind of boring and really doesn’t need to be in-game.
I’ve got sand in my hair
Assassin’s Creed: Origins is graphically great, the attention to detail in this game is amazing. Graphically it is one of the best Assassin’s Creed games out there. They’ve lost of detail to it that you wouldn’t think of which you’ll come across by accident. If you walk through the side for too long without stopping at a town or city, you’ll come across a Mirage and if you carry on, you get out set Scarabs fall from the sky a weird touch but a pretty good one. The detail to the side even stands in this game don’t do this with a high-level sword but you drop a sword in the sand you’ll see it slowly be immersed by the sand.
The restart we never knew we needed
The gameplay keeps the third-person camera from the others of the series but changes near enough everything else. Assassin Creed: Origins takes more of an RPG element by adding that, you can level up your character and your gear. It completely changes up the combat and makes it more like The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings/The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt games adding a lot more depth to it. What it lacked in the older games.
Hidden blade + desert =
Assassin Creed Origins brings a franchise that was thought of to be dying and gives it the kiss of life with this one. It builds it nearly completely up from scratch and keeps in the important parts which everyone enjoyed from the past games.
