It wouldn’t be E3 without a bunch of leaks. Today, an issue of Game Informer appeared online which reconfirmed Assassin’s Creed Origins, it’s Egyptian setting, and other information. Not only that, the issue also provided readers with the release date and other interesting facts. For example, did you know that development on Assassin’s Creed Origins began before Assassin’s Creed Unity?
Remember that shirt that leaked a few days ago? Well, Game Informer’s issue confirmed that the main character was called Bayek. The game takes place during the reign of Cleopatra around 49 BCE. The title will also feature a new combat system as well as dungeons to explore and countless puzzles to solve. Assassin’s Creed Origins promises to be the ultimate Assassin’s Creed experience based on the information in the article.
Towards the end of the article, Game Informer confirmed that Assassin’s Creed Origins would support Project Scorpio. While they couldn’t confirm what the final resolution on Project Scorpio was, they did say that it ran really well. Project Scorpio was definitely the best build of the title. Ubisoft managed to port their game in a matter of weeks after they received the development kit. Since then, Microsoft has made 9 GB of GDDR5 RAM available for games so let’s see how that impacts Assassin’s Creed Origins.
Before I forget, according to the cover, Assassin’s Creed Origins is out on October 27, 2017.
