Ubisoft has shared 19 minutes of new gameplay footage of Assassin’s Creed: Origins with IGN. The video features a new mission, and also shows the game running on Microsoft’s stronger hardware variant, the Xbox One X.
More specifically, the video focuses on a side-quest. Game director Ashraf Ismail is there to provide context to what’s going on.
In our hands-on time with the game at E3, combat seemed to be very different from previous entries in the series. It featured very deliberate animations, and punishing enemies. Correctly planning your approach, and stealth appear to be the focus of the game.
Assassin’s Creed: Origins launches October 27 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
