If you are counting the minutes until Assassin’s Creed Origins launches this Friday, but doubt the game alone will satisfy your Bayek itch, then perhaps the newly announced range of merchandise is for you. PlayStation Gear has today unveiled a varied market stall of sassy assassin loot designed to tempt even the most hardwired of Templars. Say that after a pint. Or three…
The selection includes the usual array of key rings, mugs and hats, with each given an Egyptian-brotherhood spin. But there are a few cherries atop of this well worn cake.
The Bayek statue is an intricate PVC model of this edition’s protagonist. His eagle Senu is perched upon Bayek’s arm, ready to feast on an unassuming target. And Bayek himself is armed with shield, bow and blade. It stands at 32cm tall, and comes complete with stand and hieroglyphs. It is priced at £69.99.
If you fancy yourself as an assassin but you prefer your birds roasted and not on your arm, then perhaps the roll top backpack is your bag. Featuring a gold embellished symbol on its front, the bag can be worn either as a backpack or slung over just the one shoulder like a messenger. The bag retails at £25.99.
Finally, the merchandise range is also awash with Assassin’s Creed Origins artwork. Whether you would like a portrait of Bayek to hang over your bed, or a pyramid to commemorate that once in a lifetime (virtual) trip to Egypt, then the Playstation Gear store has got you covered. They are either landscape or portrait, come pre-framed and start at £13.99.
Hoodies, jackets, t shirts and lounge pants are also on offer.
Assassin’s Creed Origins is released on October 27th.
