Assassin's Creed Origins Catch-All

Since it is coming out soon I thought we might want a thread about it. I am a sucker for these types of games. I just hope it is more Black Flag and less Unity

Sign me up. Literal Eagle Vision is hilarious but looks fun. I've never been a big fan of desert settings, but this looks gorgeous. I'm wondering if having some kind of wilderness area will give some of the feel of the first game where wandering between cities felt distinct and pleasantly lonely.

I'm interested too.
Little buzzz on GWJ.

I'm in.

Probably in. Feels like the time to try another one of these.
I like my desert settings (who would have guessed), and like Egypt setting in particular.

This is really worth watching.

It gave me great hope that the game is going to be something special. Love that they are moving away from the previous combat system.

In! I love the Ubisoft open world games.

I didn't see a mini-map in the HUD. Mixed feelings about that...

I should be wrapped up with Ghost Recon by the time it comes out - perfect timing!!

Another nice little interview with the director Ash. He answers such burning questions as: Can you pet the cats?

I'm all in. I love these games.

An interview with Ash on the Game Informer podcast.

More on combat. I like all the varied enemy types.

Here's another nice video focusing on a side quest.

Maybe I'm being hopeful, but I got a strong Witcher 3 vibe from this video. Hopefully a lot of the side-quests are as deep as this one.

The more I see of this game the more I like it.

I like the world but I thought the animations in that video were ... well not great. I hope ti is really a work in progress.

Easy Allies preview:

They are doing a pretty good job of making this game look great. However I just can't trust them with the track record of Ubisoft. I will have to wait for reviews.

I feel the same way. Have been burned multiple times now.

I always wait for reviews (well, 99% of the time anyway.)

I would say I am a 99%er as well. I did pre-order the new Uncharted but Naughty Dog and that franchise especially have never let me down. I will also buy the Cyberpunk 2077 by CD Projekt - they have more than earned my trust.

Farley is speaking the words of truth.

Funnily enough, Lost Legacy was my one exception. There are developers I love who I don't see as infallible enough to buy their games blind but I also see Naughty Dog, as constituted at the moment, as very solid in terms of reliably delivering amazing games that exceed my expectations in terms of quality.

(You also got some money to spend in multiplayer if you pre-ordered the, what was then, DLC.)

I rarely wait for reviews.
But for an Ubisoft game? Yeah. Waiting for reviews.

I've played every main AC game and enjoyed them all except for Unity which I really disliked. So I guess that's a fairly good track record so far?

Since I just finished Black Flag, and will dutifully play through them all, in order, there's no way I will buy this at full price.

But things like this make me more interested in Origins, and have better feelings about Ubisoft in general.

the company just announced a combat-free "Discovery Tour" mode that will allow players to explore and learn about Assassin's Creed: Origins' Egyptian landscapes risk-free. As Ubisoft describes it, the Discovery Tour mode turns the game into a "combat-free living museum, with guided tours that let players delve into its history firsthand." While there's an educational focus to the mode's annotated tours, which are "curated by historians and Egyptologists," the mode also "lets players roam the entire game world without constraints or threats, exploring a sprawling landscape that includes Memphis, Alexandria, the Sand Sea, and the Giza Plateau at their own pace."

7 Little Details Worth Noticing in Assassin's Creed: Origins

Assassin's Creed Origins has its sights set on The Witcher's RPG crown

After playing nine Assassin’s Creed games, I felt confident that I knew what Ubisoft’s series of hooded stab-a-thons are all about. They are games about leaping stealth attacks, collecting icons, and climbing really tall buildings. But after playing four hours of Assassin’s Creed Origins, I find myself surprised to discover that I apparently did not know what the sacred building blocks of this series actually are. When Ubisoft Montreal promised to reinvent the series with Origins I was not expecting them to build The Witcher: Egypt Adventure. Yet here we are.

Please be good. Please be good. Please be good.

Somebody mention Witcher? Ok ubi you suddenly have my attention... wonder how much of a disadvantage I'll be at having not played since Brotherhood?

Yeah, based on the videos I went ahead and preordered.

I would think you might be at an advantage becuase of how much the have changed it.
