Assassin’s Creed Origins is set to be released October 27th, which is good news for all fans of the franchise who have been waiting for another installment. According to Wikipedia, the premise of the game goes a little something like this:
The game is set in Ancient Egypt during the Ptolemaic period and recounts the fictional history of real-world events. The story recounts the origins of the conflict between the Brotherhood of Assassins, who fight for peace by promoting liberty, and a secret cabal—forerunners to the Templar Order—who desire peace through the forceful imposition of order. The player takes on the role of a Medjay named Bayek as he works to protect the people during a time of widespread upheaval: Ptolemy XV Caesarion struggles to maintain his rule whilst harbouring ambitions of expanding his kingdom; his mother, the recently-deposed Cleopatra, begins marshalling loyalist forces to launch a counter-coup against Ptolemy; and frequent incursions into the Kingdom by the Roman Empire under the command of Julius Caesar lead to fears of an imminent invasion. Bayek’s role as a Medjay brings him into contact with the forces manipulating events and sees him become the first Assassin.
