Assassin’s Creed Origins is a 2017 action-adventure video game developed and published by Ubisoft. It is the tenth major installment in the Assassin’s Creed series and the successor to 2015’s Assassin’s Creed Syndicate. Set in Ancient Egypt near the end of the Ptolemaic period (49–43 BC), the story follows a Medjay named Bayek of Siwa and his wife Aya, and explores the origins of the centuries-long conflict between the Hidden Ones—forerunners to the Assassin Brotherhood-who fight for peace by promoting liberty, and The Order of the Ancients—forerunners to the Templar Order—who desire peace through the forced imposition of order. Featuring a large open world, Origins adopted elements from role-playing video games and incorporated an overhauled “hitbox-based” combat system.

The game’s development began following the release of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag (2013). Ubisoft Montreal led its four-year development with help from a team of nearly 700 people from other Ubisoft studios around the world. The team consulted Egyptologists and historians extensively to ensure the setting was authentically represented in the game. While Assassin’s Creed had been an annual franchise since Assassin’s Creed II (2009), an extra year of development time allowed the team to polish the game further. This was largely a response to the tepid sales of Syndicate, and the troubled launch of Unity, which was plagued with technical issues when it was released in 2014.

Announced at E3 2017, Origins was released on October 27, 2017, for Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. It received positive reviews from critics, with many calling it an improvement over previous entries and praising the story, characters, voice acting, reworked gameplay systems, world design, historical accuracy and the visuals. The game drew criticism for its pacing, quest design, and technical issues. The game has sold over ten million units worldwide and was nominated for several end-of-year accolades. Ubisoft supported the game extensively following its launch, releasing two paid expansions and Discovery Tour, a series of guided tours for educational purposes. A sequel, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, was released in October 2018.

Assassin’s Creed Origins is an action-adventure stealth game played from a third-person perspective. Players complete quests—linear scenarios with set objectives to progress through the story. Outside of quests, the player can freely roam the open world environment on foot, horseback, camel-back, horse-drawn vehicles or boat.[1][2] The open world includes all of Egypt, featuring vast deserts, oasis, lakes and ancient cities such as Alexandria and Memphis.[3][4] Bayek can dive underwater and explore the lakes and the rivers, a first for the series.[5] As the players explore the world, they encounter different non-playable characters who need assistance from Bayek. These side missions, which typically involve rescuing prisoners, defeating enemies, collecting items or investigating items of interest,[6] often take Bayek to locations of interest, where the player can find treasures.[7] Throughout the game, players can explore tombs and pyramids, raid bandit hideouts, solve riddle puzzles to find rare loot, and discover synchronization points, which then unlock additional locations of interest and serve as fast travel points.[8][9]

  1. Before you say it… Yes, yes it was really that good 💙 Thank you guys for the insane hype for this video! I really hope you enjoy 😄

  2. Imo Bayek deserved a trilogy or sequal. He was very well written and interesting character with interesting supporting cast(Aya). Origins had a "ezio trilogy" potential

  3. I my opinion origins is best of the new trilogy…no always bigger is better..ehm…odyssey/valhalla..ehm ehm. Origins story is perfect in comparation to boring stories of odyssey and valhalla. Bayek has a character, and most important character development and goal(kassandra and eivor havnt any of these). Btw. nice video

  4. I have just played two ac games:
    I started with AC IV/Black Flag, it was really good, the best game at that point.
    Then i started playing Origins, and i just fell in love with the game. IT WAS MAGICAL!
    To me Origins is better than Black Flag, but both was soooo GOOD!

  5. Wow….what a magnificent review. Nobody gives this much effort or even speaks with this kind of passion for ANYTHING these days. I just wandered in here to see a random review….now I am downloading Origins to play it for the first time and subscribing just to support you. Keep doing what you do, sir.

  6. Um YES it was THAT GOOD and MORE………..Origins was amazing, beautiful, intriguing, everything you ever wanted in an Assassin's Creed game.

  7. Fun fact: Bayek was supposed to be injured/ killed and Aya would've progressed as a legendary assassin figure following his death, but Ubisoft's unreasonable fixation towards male characters being the main focal characters, they put Aya into the sidelines for Bayek to shine at the last moment of the game production. That's why the story feels so messy especially towards the end. Had they made this game with no misogyny and toxicity infused, Origins would've been much better. Every problem in Odyssey and Valhalla surfaces back to Origins and it's a shame.

  8. The game made me cry over and over again throughout the deaths of bayeks sister and the death of his son. I’m 28 years old and I never cried over a game!!

  9. They need to go back to the old formula of Assassins Creed, these 3 new games arent even assassins creed games, just using an assassins creed logo

  10. Lol, What? This game had the most basic ass story, I knew my son was going to die within the first 4 seconds. Way too predictable, terrible leveling system ruined the game. IDC how good the story was, not worth playing through the shit gameplay.

  11. I continue to think that It wasn't a great idea to focus the story on a period of time that has so much distance between the creation of the creed. That was the first misstep that eventualy leaded us to get experiences that barely had anything to do with Assassins creed.
    What I really loved about Origins is the exploration and the world setting, that's It.

  12. Odyssey is my personal favorite mainly because I was going through the after of suicide and depression and it gave me a long journey to focus on. However I will say that Origins is, out of the newest games, the best. It has a perfect blend of story and character development and a beautiful setting. I loved every moment of playing that game, really wish I could play it for the first time again.

  13. really my favorite part of this game was the exploration (the look of the zones steals my breath, its a beautiful game), and the stealth. the stealth made everything so fun even if i wasnt interested in the story. i got this game for christmas when it first came out and have almost 100% it by now playing on and off. such an enjoyable game even if it was so different. ive been playing ac since it came out and i have to say i enjoyed origins a lot out of all the games 🙂

  14. This dude deserves a Sub… I’m playing VALHALLA getting lost in his review on a Game I’ve never been super interested in. Imma go check out your Valhalla Content ♥️😴👌🏽

  15. Great video. I loved Origins as well but I would choose Odyssey over it mainly due to the much longer story where as in Origins, the story was only 26 main quests which for a transition to being an action RPG just wasn't long enough. Also, I preferred the skill tree as well as being able to craft arrows on the fly. Origins had hunting which I love to do for crafting/upgrading and the Phylakes were better than the constant mercenaries that come after you in Odyssey. Overall, both were a 9/10 for me but I rank them as Odyssey 1A and Origins 1B. It's that close. I do also feel that Odyssey when playing as Kassandra, the movement and combat feels more fluid and responsive than Origins.

    As for Valhalla, I agree with you in every aspect as to why it comes up short against Origins (and Odyssey for that matter). Why do we have a Raven in Valhalla when you can't "mark" enemies like in Origins/Odyssey? This completely kills stealth to where I barely do it in Valhalla. The previous two games I would try to do everything stealth until detected and then either just fight or go back into stealth mode if possible. You can't even mark enemies when aiming the bow at them in Valhalla. Like, WTF? What makes this even more puzzling is that it was Ashraf Ismail and the Montreal team who led both Origins and 90% of Valhalla so to eliminate it in Valhalla was weird. Don't get me started with the horrible skill tree in Valhalla (which is basically once you max out Odyssey and then can increase the percentage of your health and whatnot…can't remember what this was called), books of knowledge (which is basically Odyssey's skill tree), the loot/gear is meh because there's not much reason to swap anything out and you can't dismantle/sell any of it which makes no sense.

    Overall, while I just barely put Odyssey ahead of it, Origins is an excellent game and like you, I was turned off at first but not when I played it. I was turned off when I saw it revealed at E3 2017 but I didn't feel that way once I started playing it that Fall.

    As for Crowd Blending. I didn't like it in BF and hate it in Valhalla. I don't like the areas being "distrust" and having to blend in. I was happy that it wasn't in Origins or Odyssey.

    The leveling, gear/loot and level gating system didn't bother me at all and compared to Valhalla, I easily prefer it over the "power" system and the minimal amount of gear which hasn't surpassed my flawless Axe despite having it since the midway point. Origins is after all an RPG so to not have any of this stuff kind of would defeat the point of it being an RPG. The level gating never affected me as I was always overleveled for the majority of the game. Regarding gear/loot, I would like to see them eliminate the constant loot everywhere like barrels, sandbags, etc. I prefer just treasure chests like Black Flag with the loot in them unless gained via story/side quests. I didn't care much for those puzzles that you mentioned with the part about loving the tombs which I did enjoy and like. I easily prefer the bandit camps and forts because it's a great opportunity to try to stealth the entire area.

    I do agree in regards to the story being better without dialogue choices even though I enjoyed them in Odyssey and to a lesser extent, Valhalla but if I could choose, I would prefer the story without dialogue choices. Both expansions were damn good.

    Aya was a great character and I was always hoping for the next game with her as the lead protagonist a few years after Origins to where she's in Rome but sadly, it never happened. Or at least an expansion which also never happened. Shame.

    I do disagree in regards to the micro-transactions because the player can easily avoid them but instead would much rather complain about them despite them being 95% cosmetic. Personally, I have only purchased a single MTX for $10 ever and that was the Treasure Map Pack in Odyssey because I simply didn't want to waste the time looking for everything that wasn't on the world map. Anyway, great video. Really enjoyed it and agree with nearly everything you said about it.

  16. Definitely the best. Bayek and Aya were both great and after having fun with Odyssey and the hype I had for Valhalla falling flat, I wish we had another game with those 2. Egypt was soo beautiful.

  17. I agree the best of the 3 rpg AC games. Only thing lacking in Origins to me is super abilities, tighter combat, and more character customization options. Playing this game is absolutely amazing in Egypt the mysticism and side missions are very relevant to the story itself and more fun than the other AC RPGs imo. I could say more but pretty much agree with all you have said. Great vid!

  18. since i got ps4 only a year ago, i didn't play older assassin's creed titles. i grabbed ac odyssey and origins pretty much right away (it was cheap combo release). i played odyssey first because i just loved ancient greek myths, and it was really fun. then i went on to play other games, spent the whole year in skyrim and with witcher 3. forgot all about ac origins… until last week. oh my god, i'm so glad i played odyssey first and thought it was good, because origins feels so much better already! only in alexandria now, but i'm hooked. it's very challenging to play on hard, but it's also that much more interesting to have strategic approach instead on easy you just go raging inside a fort and kill all enemies in 3 minutes. i also like that you only upgrade and collect weapons instead of all armor like in odyssey (it was too much). can't wait to see what awaits me on the journey. what older AC titles would you recommend to me to play after this – there are so many, i feel lost (i'm gonna skip valhalla for now). thanks for great review!

  19. Assassins creed stans complained about origins. Then complained about odyssey. Before they complained about unity. Then complained about the yearly releases. Shit man. The last Assassins Creed game I played was Black flag. After that the games just became bland. Same old Templar v Assassins. You can only tell the same shit so many times before it gets old. Origins and Odyssey revived assassins creed. They are works of art.
