Assassin’s Creed Origins
Best Microsoft Spring Sale 2018 Deals
Ubisoft took an extra year to work on Assassin’s Creed Origins, and that additional development time really paid off in the final product. Origins features an overhauled combat system that is way better and more responsive than what we’ve seen in previous games, even if it does still have a lot of room for improvement.
The Ancient Egypt setting is utterly gorgeous as well, and this could very well be the best time period Ubisoft’s distinguished franchise has sent us back to. Origins’ story is serviceable, but even if you’re not invested in Bayek’s story of revenge, the open world gameplay is still fun, and the historical Discovery Tour mode is definitely worth a look as well.
