'Assassin's Creed Origins' (ALL) Will Get Novel, Comic Books, And More

The latest installment in the open-world, action-adventure series, Assassin's Creed Origins is set in ancient Egypt.

For the last four years, the team at Ubisoft Montreal behind Assassin’s CreedIV Black Flag has been crafting a new beginning for the Assassin’s Creed franchise.

In Assassin’s Creed Origins, the action takes place in Ancient Egypt, the most mysterious place in history, during a crucial period that will shape civilization. Playing as Bayek, a protector of Egypt whose personal story will lead to the creation of the Assassin’s Brotherhood, players will plunge into a living, systemic open world, and discover the secrets behind the Great Pyramids, forgotten myths, the last pharaohs, and – engraved in long-lost hieroglyphics – the origin story of the Assassin’s Brotherhood.

Assassin’s Creed Origins is a brand-new vision for the franchise embracing Action-RPG elements where players level up, loot and choose their abilities to customize their very own skilled Assassin. They will experience a completely new combat system, allowing them to attack and defend multiple enemies at once and equip ultra-rare weapons against unique and powerful bosses.

A revamped narrative experience allows total freedom for players to choose and complete quests at their own pace, each telling an intense and emotional story full of colorful characters and meaningful objectives.

With an entire country to explore, from deserts to lush oases, from the Mediterranean Sea to the tombs of Giza, players will fight against dangerous factions and wild beasts as they explore this gigantic and unpredictable land.

Ubisoft’s broad publishing collection aspires to provide fans with a wide variety of exclusive insights into our many worlds. The vast universe of Assassin’s CreedOrigins will be expanded beyond the game to explore: Bayek’s youth, the first years of the Assassins Order, the artwork behind the beautiful and mysterious landscapes of Ancient Egypt, and an official guide for hardcore players.

Assassin’s Creed Origins Desert Oath, a novel published by Ubisoft and written by Oliver Bowden in collaboration with the development team, will take place before the game. It portrays a young Bayek following his father’s footsteps, leaving the peace of his hometown, Siwa, in search of answers. Follow Bayek through a journey that will take him along the Nile and across a country in turmoil as he faces the dangers and mysteries of the Medjay’s path.

A miniseries of four official Assassin’s Creed Origins Comics written by Anne Toole and published by Titan Comics will explore the first years of the Assassins’ Order, crossing over to new territories and introducing new characters as well as notable historical figures.

The Art of Assassin’s Creed Origins, an art book published by Titan Books, will transport readers back into Ancient Egypt, one of the most mysterious places in history. Readers will explore the world of Assassin’s Creed® Origins as they discover its secrets and forgotten myths and learn more about the characters, enemies, weapons and majestic landscapes of the game through a vast collection of art, including: concept sketches, city plans, character studies, and fully rendered paintings along with comments and notes from the artists and developers.

The Complete Official Guide, a guidebook published by PRIMA Games, is an indispensable tool for dedicated players. The guide contains a general weapons and equipment guide and a 100% completion walkthrough along with detailed maps flagged with all locations, collectibles and targets. Owners of the Complete Official Guide will also have exclusive access to a mobile-friendly e-guide version optimized for a second-screen experience.
