'Assassin's Creed Origins' (ALL) Partners With Monster Energy For In-Game Content

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 Creed IV 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 announced a partnership between Assassin’s Creed Origins and Monster Energy which will give fans the chance to win in-game content and exclusive behind-the-scenes access for fans of the game and the beverage. The partnership will be showcased via co-branding on more than 500 million cans around the world and marks one of Ubisoft’s largest retail promotion partnerships in the company’s 30-year history. Kicking off in late August, the partnership will include multiple prizing categories and possibilities to win, including:

Players will have the opportunity to unlock in-game resources, starting currency and weapons via the Monster partnership. Those who purchase select Custom Collector’s cans, four-packs, and ten-packs are able to redeem their codes here for the chance to win in-game prizes like Drachma (in-game currency), Animal Resources, World Resources and bonus weapons not available in the game, including the Dust Biter sword, the Face Breaker long stave, the Scepter of Thaati long scepter and Rain Bow.

Six grand-prize trips to the development studio will be awarded to eligible fans in the US and Canada. These trips will be for two to the Ubisoft studio in Montreal, Canada. Each winner and their guest will get a behind-the-scenes studio tour. All airfare and transportation will be covered by Monster. For complete rules and terms please visit here.

100 Xbox One S consoles and copies of Assassin’s Creed Origins will be given away to fans in the US and Canada who participate in the Monster Energy program. By visiting the dedicated site (MonsterEnergy.com/AssassinsCreed), fans will be entered to win the Assassin’s Creed Origins console prize package.

In addition, 150 copies of Assassin’s Creed Origins for the Xbox One family of devices will be awarded to fans in Latin America who participate in the program.

To kick off the partnership and celebrate the launch of the game, Ubisoft and Monster Energy will be hosting 45 launch events on college campuses around the US. The launch events will include giveaway items like copies of the game, Monster Energy drinks, and other Assassin’s Creed swag. These events will coincide with the launch of the game and the kick-off in October, 2017.

It is safe to assume that since Assassin's Creed Origins has not been released yet, details on what FF XV content will appear in ACO will be revealed at a later date.
