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.
