'Assassin's Creed Origins' With Fall 2017 Release To Offer Players 'More Freedom?'

08 May 2017

It is supposedly the biggest Assassin's Creed game ever, and has been in development for a number of years now.

First detailed by WWG, these new rumours expand on a report published by Kotaku in early 2016, which talked of a new Assassin's Creed with the working title of Empire. It's also said that Origins will feature "a character progression system less tied to the story".

The site goes on to say that Assassin's Creed: Origins will give players "considerably more freedom" than other games in the series, and put a "greater emphasis on exploration". Some recently leaked screenshots were confirmed to be fake by the developer of Assassin's Creed: Empire.

According to WWG, however, the name has changed to Assassin's Creed: Origins and is set for a formal reveal at E3 2017. Origins takes place in ancient Egypt, but the exact time period is still unknown; while the sources mention boat travel across the Nile river and the Mediterranean Sea, ancient Egypt's naval presence is nearly as old as the civilization itself, ditto for its boats, which go all the way back to 3500 BC.

A development source we spoke to compared it numerous times to Bethesda's Skyrim. Naval combat will reportedly also return, allowing players to travel beyond Egypt, possibly even as far as Greece. They say that impressions of the project internally are so far positive. Naval combat, naturally, is also said to be included. While the main quest will be centred in Egypt, an internal teaser trailer is reported to show Origins transitioning between time periods and locations, "including an Asian country, WW2 era France, and a modern day Abstergo Industries facility". There's no certainty yet if this video in question will be released to the public. It's kind of easy to discredit him as he provides zero actual evidence, instead suggesting that he knows the name of the AC game because he works for a company that deals in pre-order cards for stores like GameStop, which sounds wildly specific.

Last bit of note is the reservation is for the Gold edition of the game which has the base game. No idea what the price will be. "I believe these are scheduled to be shipped on the 30th so the official announcement should come by then". In the center of the card, there is the new assassin walking toward the city. There's a good chance we may hear more of the game at E3 2017.
