We have no idea what the final product will turn out to be, but the latest trailer for Assassin’s Creed Origins is like so many of the other trailers – beautiful. “From Sand” has a haunting vocal in the background as different items in the world, from a cat to a human heart, start to swirl and dissolve into sand.
As a man faces an oncoming sandstorm, the trailer ends with a cryptic statement, and it can be interpreted multiple ways if someone was willing to expend some brainpower. (We aren’t, so drop your thoughts in the comments, deep thinkers.)
We welcome a trip to ancient Egypt (Japan o kudasai!), and the land of the Nile should be fertile ground for a story about the beginnings of the Assassin and Templar factions in the series.
With an October 27th launch date, we have just under a month to see if the extra time after Syndicate was put to good use.
Ubisoft Press Release
Jason became terminally addicted to videogames after receiving the NES at an early age. This addiction grew to include PC gaming and was cemented with the launch of the PS2. From then on, he was afflicted with epic RPGs, tense shooters, and deep strategy games, never becoming skillful, but never able to quit. He continues to play games (poorly) and share his passion for them to anyone willing to listen.
