Order of the Ancients

Ubisoft has released a brand new trailer for Assassin’s Creed Origins. It focuses on a secretive group called the Order of the Ancients. You’ll find out more by watching the video below, but they’re revealed to be “controlling Egypt from the shadows,” and are definitely a force to be reckoned with.

Check out the new trailer below:

For even more on the upcoming action game, check out our Assassin’s Creed Origins preview. Here’s a snippet of what I had to say:

My Assassin’s Creed Origins demo began with the protagonist Bayek talking to his wife, Aya. The two are both loyal to their queen, Cleopatra, but this devotion seems to have caused a rift between the two. Bayek is worried that they never have time to spend together, and that she values the queen more than him. “What has she done for you that I have not?” asks Bayek, despite knowing deep down that his questioning wouldn’t have any real impact on her conviction.

The reason they’re together today is to investigate a sick Apis, a bull that’s worshipped in the Memphis region of Egypt. The sacred animal is recognized as the son of Hathor, the Egyptian goddess that personified motherhood, and was periodically sacrificed and reborn in order to worship her. So, this is not a mere sickly animal, but an investigation of a deity. As such, it was important that I figured out what was going on.

Assassin’s Creed Origins will release October 27 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
