This morning, Ubisoft released a new cinematic trailer for the publisher’s upcoming action-adventure RPG Assassin’s Creed Origins.
The new video for the game features no gameplay or action sequences of the sort, but instead shows us the landscape of Ancient Egypt, which serves as the setting for Assassin’s Creed Origins. The trailer, which is titled “From Sand”, is somewhat somber in nature as we see everything from the pyramids, to a boat, and even a cat slowly disintegrate into sand. Only Bayek, the protagonist of Assassin’s Creed Origins, does not dissolve as we see his arrival near the video’s conclusion. The trailer ends with the phrase, “Where it ends, it begins,” appearing on screen, which clearly is a reference to Assassin’s Creed Origins being the first game chronologically within the storied franchise.
In other Assassin’s Creed Origins news, Ubisoft revealed a new mode for the game earlier this week called Discovery Tour by Assassin’s Creed: Ancient Egypt. In Discovery Tour, players will be able to learn more factual history about Ancient Egypt by traveling through various locations within the game and interacting with different objects in the environment. While Discovery Tour won’t be apart of Assassin’s Creed Origins at launch, it will come as a free update in early 2018.
