Ubisoft has been plugging away at Assassin’s Creed games for 10 years now, and the series’ next upcoming title (and 10th installment in the series as well) is rekindling the excitement of visiting the past. Assassin’s Creed Origins (ASO) takes place in ancient Egypt during the rise of Cleopatra’s reign around 49 BCE—complete with horses and camels as the best form of transportation between areas in this open world. Check out the new combat mode that pits players against increasingly challenging waves of enemies while you wonder how to climb stealthily to the top of the local pyramids.
