About

Assassin's Creed Origins is an open-world action game developed by Ubisoft. It further continues the series after Assassin's Creed Syndicate.

The story is set in two time periods simultaneously. In 2017, the order of Templars has recovered an ancient artifact that will allow them to seize control over humanity. Assassins plan to get the artifact back in their hands. Layla Hassan relieves the memories of two ancient Egyptians named Bayek and Aya who create the Assassins order.

Levels are open-ended which allows both stealth or open combat approaches. Players are put in an open world in which they can complete quests in order to either progress through the story, level their character up or upgrade their equipment. The "eagle vision" mode was replaced by an eagle by the name of Senu. Players can use Senu to scout the area ahead and highlight enemies.

The game features a heavily revised combat system that relies on hit-box mechanics rather than pre-determined animations as it did in the previous titles. Origins focuses on introducing various types of enemies that the players will have to learn about in order to defeat them.

I'm a producer/composer (usually write under the name KASSEO) and made this theme as a nod to Assassins Creed: Black Flag - thought this would be the best place to share it. Hope you enjoy it!

Assassin's Creed Origins reviews and comments

I never played the original Assassin's Creed games so I cannot comment on the changes the developer made to the franchise.

All I can say is that as someone who loves the ancient world and Egypt mythology, the open world blew me away and travelling through it has been a dream come true.

The combat is a bit clunky and not quite as good as in the successor Assassin's Creed Odyssey, but it's enjoyable overall. Especially the mounted combat is better than in most other games.

The game is also filled with engaging side story missions and doesn't really have any brainless filler missions like AC: Odyssey. It's better in that regard.

The main story line is fine, but won't win any awards. It keeps you interested enough to carry on but the exceptional aspect of the game is the ancient Egyptian world you are exploring. If you're not into that, the game loses its strongest point.

A worthwhile reinvention. The story is mostly functional, with some cool setpieces and combat is very simple. The highlight here is exploring the varied map. They really packed Egypt full of cool stuff to find.
«Sit back and relax»
Really liked the gameplay, the world, and just all the stuff you get to do.  There appears to be a bit too much in the side missions (i.e. reduced trophy areas would help and the animal dens felt out of place), but all in all was fantastic.  Fighting felt good, although probably should have remapped my buttons as the Square and Circle buttons felt backwards in fights.
9/10
Rest in peace, Assassin's Creed. I'll try to remember what you were and not what you are. Just a soul less game without narrative, a game as service where you can see everything that is going wrong on videogames, but it's not a free to play, although sometimes it seems too.

This game didn't convince me that the new direction of the series was a good one.  It's fine and full of a lot of filler nothing side quests.  Lots of stuff here that eventually became good in later games, but overall this experience isn't anything exceptional.  AC is fun though.

«Sit back and relax»
In the early days of the COVID pandemic, I was lonely, jobless, and living back at home with my parents. My ways of coping with this were often quite unhealthy and self destructive. But it wasn't the drug use or panic attacks or sudden bouts of crying that I think back on with a sense of shame. No, my ultimate act of COVID-induced perversity was 100%ing the entire Assassins Creed series (plus DLCs) over the course of about a month. It wasn't a very fun experience, but it was thoroughly mind numbing and a pretty decent way to cope with all that boredom and depression. 

I'm ashamed to say it, but I fancy myself a bit of an AC expert at this point. Perhaps this useless expertise can serve some people on this site. This is by far the best of the new Assassin's Creed games. It has the best story and voice acting by miles. It also edges out the newer RPG-styled AC games in terms of size, gameplay balance, and world design. If you've seen trailers for the new AC games and have felt curious or enticed by them in any way, play this one first and then don't play any of the other ones.
A full on return to glory after the boring tripe the franchise has become. Actually meaningful side content, a good story (mostly) and a world that is fun to explore
