Not even remotely interested in it. I was hoping this game could be a turning point for this series, but I'm not really seeing anything that fixes the series problems or pushes it forward in any meaningful way. Combat still looks like a boring, button mashing affair, with dull tacked-on RPG and crafting systems that every game has these days. Freerunning still seems clunky as hell. Stealth still looks basic and clumsy. Story still looks like an incredibly droll affair, and the setting doesn't do much for me. The open-world design seems to Ubisoft to a T, and I've more than had my fill of that. Meh, will wait for a sale, and pick it up for $20 or less. No recent AC has been worth more than that to me.

It looks great but I'm not currently in a position to buy in on launch. Definitely excited to play it eventually though.

My three most anticipated games of the rest of the year are all out on the same day.

Very excited for this one.

After Unity and mediocore syndicate.

I'm honestly not sure what people see in this new one.

I wouldn't mind being proven wrong though. I also think for most the story was an important factor which isn't as strong anymore.

I am actually a bit Hyped up and would probably Day 1 this except... Mario! :) I will most likely grab the game on BF, the changes seem to be the best in years.... since Black Flag which I quite liked and which was by the same team.

That YouTuber posted an event video saying an Ubisoft rep told him they were working on a 60fps mode for Xbox One X. That got me super-hyped.

Then Ubi didn't outright deny it, but certainly didn't tease anything promising, which deflated my hype again.

So my hype has gone from pre-ordering to play on Xbox One X for $60 on November 7th...to I'll buy a code down the road for PC for ~$20.

This is the first AC game I've been even moderately interested in since 2. Definitely not getting it for a while, but I'll keep my eye on it for sure.

Very excited to explore ancient Egypt. Combat looks kinda mediocre, unfortunately. If I had a Switch to play Mario, I probably would get this later down the line.

It's the first AssCreed since 2 that I'm interested in, mainly because it seems to be an RPG now. I like the setting too.

I'll have to prioritize Mario Odyssey though, too bad.

I just mean I'd like a story and characters that are interesting again.

So far the guy in Origins feels like the assassin in 3, all brooding and edgy with a boring personality and what little we've seen of the plot totally doesn't interest me.

Very small. I think my interest in this franchise died down with the previous generation. I'm also really growing out of the whole AAA open world game design, most of these games seem to offer roughly the same experience in a different dressing.

Based on what I've seen, this game simultaneously makes big changes and yet not enough. Still looks like half-brained stealth mechanics coupled with another brand of unsatisfying combat.

Yeah, looking forward to it mainly for the environment and Egypt has always been fascinating to me. I enjoyed Unity and Syndicate on PC no issues. I wouldn't claim these are great games but I just enjoy roaming and climbing around older settings.

I am hopeful but not hyped. It looks promising, between the setting and investing an additional year in trying to make it stand out. I donít have it preordered and will be looking for hands-on feedback from individuals post-launch while I play other games that are launching earlier this month and on the same day.

This doesn't look remotely in the same league as Wolf and Mario to me, and I have my doubts about the PC port. I'll maybe check it out in Feb or whenever it gets a good discount.

I can say from playing this game quite a bit at E3, enemies don't just stand around doing nothing as you fight. They don't wait, they will gang up on you. Not sure about this particular instance, but they are pretty damn good about attacking simultaneously and forcing the player to perform one or two quick attacks before having to dodge and create some distance by running.

Yeah thats not really a legit representative of good combat.

Especially with that Skyrim-esque ending animation on the last enemy standing.

Origins is trying to encapsulate an Action Rpg right?.

Give me Dragon's Dogma tier gameplay and Horizon style archery and I'm good.

all the gears look like can be updated for 10 levels and each level need 20+ different materials...

you need to hunt for the materials for a long long journey..

Have to say that the combat doesn't look that appealing to me but I don't think any Assassin's Creed game has had great combat. I kinda wish they'd leaned more into the stealth/assassin side of combat and had less hand to hand stuff.

The new system in Origins looks fresh and exciting for the series. I still think AC3’s was the most thrilling and satisfying but this one looks engaging and like it has sole nuance

The combat is my biggest worry. Is there a counter/execution system in Origins? All the combat footage I've seen reminds me of Witcher 3's combat.

Very little Hype from me. After playing, enjoying and finishing AC 1, 2, Bro, 3 and 4 I did not finish Unity or Syndicate or Rogue or indeed Revelations now I come to think on it. Nor Liberations.

So I am an early AC fan it seems. If the reviews come out and say it's like 2 and Brotherhood and this from 1 but better and these things from 3 but better etc etc I will look into it. Otherwise I am waiting for a sale to try it.

I don't support that shit, so there for unfortunate Assassins Creed:origins will not be bought.

I for one would rather put my money into other Single player games such as Wolfenstein, Mario Odysessy, Yakuza series or even Horizon:ZD DLC than support a game that puts those in a game that has no bearing being in.
