Today, during Xbox's pre-Gamescom press conference from Cologne, Germany, Microsoft and Ubisoft showcased a brand new cinematic trailer of Assassin's Creed: Origins.
The trailer is made with CGI, and it looks absolutely fantastic. Not that CGI trailers show us what the game will look like as a finished product, but they do a fantastic job of snagging our interest. And of course the gameplay isn't going to look anywhere near as good, but thats not what Gamescom trailers are about.
As it is one of the last major games events before the insane fall season of games releases, Gamescom is the time to dress your best. To rake in those sweet holiday game sales. No one knows that game better than Ubisoft, and they managed to show Origins at its best quite handily today.
As this is AC, in today's trailer we get to see plenty of historical figures will make appearances in game. Which is freaking fantastic for history nerds like myself.
Recently, Ubisoft mentioned that it expects the game to sell better than Syndicate, but a bit worse than Unity and Black Flag. Which might explain the ridiculous number of pre-E3 "leaks." However, the game was indeed the most talked about title of E3 2017. However, if it follows in the footsteps of 2016's most-talked-about game of E3, you know that little known game called The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, it may just fo better than Black Flag.
Assassin's Creed: Origins will launch for PS4, Xbox One and PC on October 27th.
The Gamescom trailer is below.
