Assassin's Creed: Origins Debuts First Gameplay Trailer & Live Demo

Assassin's Creed: Origins debuted at Microsoft's E3 press event. The debut trailer revealed the world of the first group of people to call themselves assassins in Ubisoft's action franchise.


The trailer showed the main character, an egyptian "sheriff" of sorts named Bayak, sliding down the side of a large pyramid, battling armored enemies in a coliseum, firing a multi-shot bow at enemies, and swimming underwater while avoiding creatures like hippos and aggressive crocodiles. A developer from Ubisoft implied this game would detail the very beginning of the assassin order.


A longform demo showcased additional gameplay from Origins, detailing new mechanics and stealth maneuvers. Using a trained eagle, Bayak infiltrates the grounds of a local ruler's stronghold. The eagle is able to scout from the sky and mark enemies. Magi was able to use tall grass in the stronghold to sneak up on guards and perform traditional takedowns. The demo concluded with Bayak taking down the ruler with a single bow shot, guiding the arrow's trajectory in slow motion.



It's been a while since we had an Assassin's Creed to chew on. What do you think about its Egyptian setting and new gameplay abilities?
