Assassin's Creed: Origins screenshot from the From Sand cinematic trailer

After a rather lengthy hiatus following the somewhat disappointing Assassin's Creed: Syndicate, the series will be making its hopefully triumphant return with Assassin's Creed: Origins next month. It will bring with it a setting not often seen in gaming, a somewhat realistic depiction of Ancient Egypt, as well as a variety of gameplay improvements, the most important of which is the shift from 1-on-1 dueling to a more tactical system that rewards stealth, positioning, and clever usage of gadgets above all else.

While the recently posted cinematic trailer will not give you a good look at the gameplay, it will at least show you what sort of theme and visuals the developers are aiming for. Have a look, the trailer is quite a sight to behold:

If you don't find sand to be rough and irritating, you might be glad to hear that Assassin's Creed: Origins will be coming to PC, PS4, and Xbox One this October 27th. To learn a little bit more, or just check out some of the other trailers, you should head over to the official website. And finally, here's one of the gameplay previews, just so you can get a good idea of what Assassin's Creed: Origins is all about. Enjoy!
