In our exhaustive (30 seconds or so) research, Sobek is the Egyptian god of fertility, crocodiles, and water safety. He also helped to create the world, so he has been around for a while. It’s time to change that.
The Trials of the Gods in Assassin’s Creed Origins is a free event that pits you against an Egyptian deity. To us, he is just a giant crocodile with bad choices in headgear and interesting jewelry. He may be a challenge, but it’s nothing we haven’t seen before. (Actually, we have never seen this before, so that may be stretching the truth a bit.)
As the first big release for the Assassin’s Creed series in a while, check out Kyle’s review here, and jump into the Trials of the Gods event starting today.
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.
