Assassin's Creed Origins Travels Back to the World's First Civilization, Launches in October

The sheriff of Egypt.

Assassin's Creed Origins received its unveiling at today's Microsoft E3 Press Conference. Meant to capture the history of the world's first civilization, Assassin's Creed Origins revealed its vibrant setting, along with new gameplay features. Assassin's Creed Origins hits stores in October.

Players were given the first look at Bayek, a Medjay or "Egyptian sheriff" as Ubisoft calls him (will have to confirm the validity of this history later). Some of the cool new gameplay features includes picking up weapons from the environment, eagle vision where the vision is literally from the perspective of an eagle, and some new combat including using a shotel as Bayek's blade of choice.

Assassin's Creed Origins was previously leaked through all manner of odd sources such as on Tshirts and pre-order cards from target. Origins looks to add all manner of different previous Assassin's Creed gameplay mechanics such as wild animal PvE, sailing, as well as newer mechanics such as tomb raiding.

Assassin's Creed Origins launches October 27.
