Ubisoft seems to be pretty confident with the release of Assassin’s Creed Origins, new installment in the popular franchise which will be releasing later this year after the cancellation of annual release cycle. The cycle had to be stopped as the studio realized that the recent installments were not up to the mark and actually a disappointment in the industry.
Since the start of the year, there were reports regarding Assassin’s Creed Origins, a new game set in Egypt. While a couple of weeks ago during E3, Ubisoft officially revealed the title as a first true action RPG in the series. The studio is also considering the essence of optimal content which is usually present in most of the RPGs.
Speaking of the content, game director Ashraf Ismail during his recent interview with the Game Reactor affirmed that the studio is committed to deliver high quality optimal content that will surprise the players and show the value. Game director Ismail also worked on Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag which was also one most popular title in the series.
According to Ismail, Ubisoft Montreal is putting a lot of efforts to ensure the high quality content. Here’s what he said:
We have a lot of surprises in there, a lot of it is optional content, we put a lot of effort into having really high quality optional content. The idea that ancient Egypt is mysterious, that it invokes this awe feeling, we wanted to feel that in the game.
So, we’ve gone overboard into making sure that there’s a lot of optional content that will constantly surprise the player, show quality, show a narrative value, show the meaning of why this is the place the Brotherhood came to be. We definitely play with that, I want people to be lost in this world and to be in awe with the majesty of ancient Egypt.
Assassin’s Creed Origins is set to feature a couple of more protagonists, but according to the studio, those protagonists will be limited to their missions. It is one of the most anticipated titles of this year.
The game is scheduled for release on October 27th, 2017 for PC, PS4 and Xbox One and will not have multiplayer gameplay. Stay tuned for more updates!
