Petting Animals / Taming Cats
Assassin’s Creed Origins is the biggest open-world the series has ever seen. It’s utterly massive, twice as big as Assassin’s Creed Black Flag, but with a landscape that is almost entirely land and packed full of things to discover. As you would expect, in between immersing yourself in the narrative of its gripping main campaign and engaging side quests, there’s a whole bunch of cool side activities to enjoy. Here we’re taking a look at some of these fun distractions that really flesh out the world of Origins and make its setting feel like a dynamic, living breathing place full of emergent gameplay.
You’ve no doubt seen this adorable interaction in gameplay presentations already, but for those that haven’t, here’s the thing: you can pet little kitties and have them follow you about. Yep, that’s right. And just like real life cats, these feline companions have a mind all of their own, sometimes choosing to come and greet you with affection, whilst other times totally ignoring your best efforts to show them some love.
Cats were, of course, a huge part of Egyptian culture – as was zoolatry on the whole – and they’re scattered all across the open-world of Assassin’s Creed Origins. You’ll find most of them in the urban areas such as Memphis, so make sure you stop by and take the time to pet them.
