Pyramids, elephants and head-cleaving abound in Assassin’s Creed: Origins launch trailer

Blood on the sand

This week sees the release of Assassin’s Creed: Origins, the latest game in Ubisoft’s historical murder series, which now spans roughly twenty titles. The new game, launching on PC, PS4 and Xbox One, moves the wall-climbing, horse-riding and neck-slicing to the blistering heat of ancient Egypt.

To celebrate the release of the latest chapter of the mainline Assassin’s Creed series, Ubisoft have released a final trailer, showing people’s hero Bayek blaze a trail for those that will follow him in the future Brotherhood of Assassins, who will forever wage war with the sinister Templar Order.

Assassin’s Creed: Origins launches on PC and consoles worldwide on October 27.

The trailer may be locked to U.S territories.
