Here's the first hour and a half of Assassin's Creed Origins (with one major spoiler edited out of that footage), which arrives on PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One this Friday, Oct. 27. Set in ancient Egypt, it's Ubisoft's most ambitious and beautiful game in the series.
This footage shows the kind of world and environment Ubisoft Montreal has put together, as well as main character Bayek's general personality. You'll also get a sense of some of the early missions, up to around level five, and the underlying systems, like upgrades, weapons and maps. We’ve taken out references to a major plot point.
