Assassin's Creed Origins

After a year off, Assassin's Creed is back and, as you might have guessed from the pyramid this assassin is climbing, it takes place in Egypt. Assassin's Creed Origins debuts on October 27 on Xbox One (and the new, more powerful Xbox One X), PS4 and PC.

Assassin's Creed Origins

Origins takes the story back to the first days of the Assassins. You play as Bayek -- basically an Egyptian cop.

Assassin's Creed Origins

Origins will actually depart from the normal action-adventure feel of earlier titles. It'll be a fully fledged role-playing game so you can level up your character as you choose while you explore the world. From the shot above, it looks like you'll be fighting some scary bosses as well.
