Assassin’s Creed: Origins screenshot from the "From Sand" trailer

After a lengthy hiatus following the somewhat disappointing Assassin's Creed: Syndicate, the series will be making its hopefully triumphant return with Assassin's Creed: Origins tomorrow. Besides the rather stunning depiction of Ancient Egypt, Origins will be bringing with it a variety of gameplay and quality of life improvements, the most important of which is a shift towards a more tactical combat system. Its no longer going to be a series of 1-on-1 duels, but rather a system that rewards stealth, positioning, and clever usage of gadgets above all else. In other words, getting caught is going to be more of a punishment now, at least if you're not prepared for it.

While the recently posted launch trailer won't offer you much of a look at the gameplay side of things, it will give you a good example of just how gorgeous Origins can be at times. Have a gander, its not a very long video, but it does have some rather interesting scenes:

If you don't mind the occasional bit of rough and irritating sand, you can expect to see Assassin's Creed: Origins on PC, PS4, and Xbox One tomorrow, or rather on October 27th depending on your timezone. To learn a little bit more, or just check out some of the actual gameplay trailers, you should head over to the official website. And finally, here's the most recent cinematic trailer, just to help set the atmosphere. Enjoy!
