Assassin's Creed: Origins to Release October 27, According to Leak

Assassin's Creed Origins is coming out in October and supports Project Scorpio

Although not an Xbox exclusive title, Assassins' Creed Origin will enjoy true 4K and HDR support when the console comes out on November 7.

Like the leaked merchandise before it, the magazine confirms Origins' setting of Egypt alongside the name of the male protagonist, Bayek. You will be able to see some of this new gameplay in both the reveal trailer and gameplay trailers below.

Journey into Ancient Egypt, the most mysterious place in history, during a crucial period that will shape the world.

"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". Your character earns experience points and can level up, which unlocks new abilities in a skill tree. Putting all the negativity aside, Assassin's Creed: Origins looks like a fresh direction for the series and actually looks like fun. Whether you want to go all out and attack enemies or take the stealthy approach, it really is up to you.

It was only last month when we saw our first glimpse of the next Assassin's Creed game.

MEANINGFUL QUESTS - Play intense stories with impactful objectives at your own pace. As we got to see in the two clips, they've added some interesting tweaks to gameplay. One particular aspect that felt dated was Assassin's Creed's combat, which, by the looks of the gameplay walkthrough we received today, seems to have been given a pretty big overhaul.

Information regarding Assassin's Creed Origins has been leaking out since past year but Microsoft had the best exclusive above all.
