About Assassin’s Creed Origins
Assassin’s Creed Origins takes place in Ancient Egypt, the most mysterious place in history, during a crucial period that will shape civilization. Playing as Bayek, a protector of Egypt, players will journey into a living, systemic open world, and discover the secrets behind the Great Pyramids, forgotten myths, the last pharaohs and – engraved in long-lost hieroglyphics – the origin story of the Assassin’s Brotherhood.
Assassin’s Creed Origins is a brand-new vision for the franchise, embracing action-RPG elements where players level up, loot and choose their abilities to customize their very own skilled Assassin. A reinvented combat system allows players to experience a completely new way to battle as they master a variety of weapons with different characteristics and rarities to defeat challenging enemies and unique bosses.

With an entire country to explore, from deserts to lush oases, from the Mediterranean Sea to the tombs of Giza, players will fight against dangerous factions and wild beasts as they explore this gigantic and unpredictable land.
