Assassin’s Creed makes a return this year after taking a year off after the disaster that was Unity and the mediocrely-average reception of Syndicate at best, Assassin’s Creed Origins shows real promise and might be able to bring the series back to it’s former glory.
The gameplay demos so far have shown some amazing insight into how much work has been put into the game and it is definitely something that we’re all waiting for. The studio has recently revealed that no two playthroughs of the game will offer the same experience because of the advanced AI.
“For us, it’s something that we really want to push. We want players to have their own personal experience, which means less scripting and less hand-holding. We create a world, we place some content in it – we have dozens of quests, and people that you will meet who will tell you stories. But in between, when you’re in the world, a lot of things can happen. And no two people will have the same experience – it’s just not possible. We’ve reworked the AI so that all living beings in the world are real AI. The lions are hunting antelopes, the crocodiles are attacking hippos if there are any around, and the world is much more living than before.”
There has been a lot of detail put into the game and Ubisoft has made sure to let us know of that. There will be Tombs in the game and these tombs will be based on real life structures which is interesting to note. The game can really be a great revival for a series which was frankly becoming a bit stale
Assassin’s Creed Origins will be releasing on October 27 2017 for the PS4, Xbox One and PC. Be sure to stay tuned for everything more on it!
