After taking a year off from the franchise, Assassin’s Creed is back and this time players are transported back farther than ever before to ancient Egypt. Bayek, an Egyptian Medjay, goes on a quest during the reign of Ptolemy XIII that will eventually lead to the founding of the Assassin’s Brotherhood as we know it from the first game. Origins completely revamps the series’ quest and combat system, making it more akin to an RPG. Along Bayek’s journey, he will encounter the likes of Julius Caesar and Cleopatra.
