This is the first Assassin's Creed I'm looking forward to in years.

Re: Assassin's Creed: Origins - 10/27/17

One thing I've always hated about the Assassin's Creed games was the combat, and it looks like they finally addressed it in this game. I still think first and foremost it should focus on being a stealth game, but I always felt like you were punished if you got mixed up in combat, which flat out sucked. I think Splinter Cell did a great job correcting that and it looks like this game is finally on that page as well.

I also liked how they are finally updating the weapons. Being able to just pick something up off the ground and compare it to what you have should be the standard now.

Re: Assassin's Creed: Origins - 10/27/17

I am really looking forward to this. I absolutely loved Black Flag and the sailing battles i found to be a great break from the on land stuff. Overall a superb game. I gave the Paris game a miss but did pick up the London set game and i actually had a blast playing this as well. I am liking the look of the Egyptian setting and getting boats back in it is a great thing in my opinion. Will look at maybe a day one purchase, but cautious after the mess the Paris game ended up being according to reviews.

Re: Assassin's Creed: Origins - 10/27/17

I got burned out on this series a few years ago. Are they still doing the lame "modern day" stuff or has that been dropped?

Re: Assassin's Creed: Origins - 10/27/17

Graphics/art look amazing. But then so did Unity, and we all know how that turned out...

While the series was staring to encroach too close to modern times, this feels like almost too big a step back in time. But I guess you gotta do that if you want to go to ancient Egypt.

From what I read, there's going to be sections set in modern day but will star a new character.

I am going to get this after watching that video. Sucks that the steelbook version is so expensive.

They still had a little bit of the modern day stuff in Syndicate, but it was only in cutscenes. They were a very small part of the game. I don't remember there being more than a few minutes spent in the present day.

Unity sucked, but Syndicate was very underrated and might be my favorite AC game. It's a shame it was released when enthusiasm for the series was so low. Looking forward to this one..

Re: Assassin's Creed: Origins - 10/27/17

Interesting. So for an extra $10 over the Gold Edition, you can order the Collector's Edition (The God's Edition), but it only comes with the Deluxe Edition instead of the Gold Edition. So I guess they are testing the waters to see if people are more interested in the physical items or the DLC content.

Spoiler:


There is also a $800 super edition over at the Ubisoft store. If there are 999 people crazy enough to buy it, it comes with a 28.7 inch statue and a bunch of other shit including not one, but TWO steelbooks.

I'm in. Outside of AC III and the initial version of Unity the series has been awesome. Day one for me.

I dig a few of the trinkets (map, soundtrack, amulet), but the confusion over the different edition tiers will probably just nudge me toward getting whatever edition is the cheapest with the steelbook. Doesn't help that I don't have any use for one of the three (!) different statues.
