Game Informer’s latest cover is Assassin’s Creed: Origins and it’s revealed the first details of the game, likely ahead of Ubisoft’s desired schedule.
The cover story reveals a whole lot of details that we won’t be spoiling but I’m going to quickly go through some major information.
The game will feature a fully dynamic world with day and night cycles. You’ll also be able to ride camels and horses in the game. The main protagonist of the game is called Bayek and he will be able to swim underwater, tame animals and raid Tombs.
He will also possess a shield that is able to deflect arrows and also pick up enemy arrows stuck to his shield. The game will be optimized for Project Scorpio and might support 4K.
Origins will also feature a more RPG centric gameplay which will include a skill points system. You will also be able to control a pet Eagle, through which you can see the city using Eagle vision. The Eagle is called Senu.
The game will be releasing on October 27 for PS4, Xbox One and PC. Expect a full reveal during Ubisoft’s press conference at E3 2017.
