Assassins Creed Origins Trials of the Gods

Assassin’s Creed Origins players can now battle against the God Sekhmet as part of its Trials of the God. Ubisoft released a new video showing the boss encounter, and it looks pretty wild (although not something you’d expect out of an Assassin’s Creed game). The 30-second clip is just a taste of what players can experience in-game.

While I wish that had been the only issue with the game, the other cardinal sin seems to emanate from being overly ambitious. There aren’t really any tent-pole missions in the game besides a somewhat hectic last hurrah. Revelations took the over the top set-piece approach with its most important missions, Unity took the creative approach where villains were placed intricately between dozens of guards and a maze of level geometry, but Origins seems to be content with simply having the player dive onto the main target with the press of the triangle button. Some of these targets have somewhat creative missions, but even they aren’t particularly enjoyable to pull off. There just isn’t anything I’ll remember or ponder over in the years to come from a mission design perspective, and I believe this is due to the amount of resources and care that went into crafting a replica of Ancient Egypt.

Assassin’s Creed Origins blew my expectations away in so many areas, but there’s still something missing that made the likes of Assassin’s Creed II and Brotherhood so special. However, this is most definitely the best title since then, and one that I’ll be jumping back into very soon. The new combat system makes for some incredibly satisfying moments, while the design of the world is only matched by the likes of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Ubisoft Montreal can be proud knowing that they’ve delivered a level of AAA-production that likely won’t be seen again until Cyberpunk 2077 rolls around, but there’s just that last leap of faith that needs to be made to once again deliver a generation defining game.

Assassin’s Creed Origins is available now.
