Assassin's Creed Origins Launch Trailer Tells the Legend of the Assassin in 4K

Assassin's Creed Origins is getting close to its release date, and Ubisoft jumped the gun with a brand new launch trailer.

October 23, 2017

The release date of Assassin’s Creed Origins is drawing closer and closer, and nowadays it appears to be out of fashion to release a launch trailer on launch day, so Ubisoft jumped the gun and published it today.

The trailer, titled “Legend of the Assassin” tells the story of protagonist Bayek with beautiful footage in 4K and typically Egyptian wall painting. It’s definitely epic, as you would expect for a game like this.

You can check it out for yourself below.  If you want to see and learn more, you can read a recent announcement of the post-launch free and paid DLC the game is going to get, on top of watching twenty minutes of Xbox One X gameplay recorded by us at a press event in 4K resolution,  the latest live action trailer, and read our preview of the game.


You can also check out the recently-revealed trophy list, and the official list of system requirements for PC. Yet, more importantly, you shouldn’t miss our recent interview with Creative Director Jean Guesdon, who talked about the fruits of a extra year of development and much more.

Assassin’s Creed Origins will launch for PS4, Xbox One and PC on October 27th.

Update: for some reason Ubisoft removed the trailer, but below you can see another upload courtesy of YouTube user GamesHQMedia.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
