He will become the founder of the Brotherhood (I don't know how this makes sense lore wise?)
Customization - you can choose the look you want without this affecting stats!!
Eagle vision is indeed through an eagle - called Senu
Memphis and Alexandria are some cities
Can equip two bows and two melee weapons at once. Also can use fists again.
Can fire multiple arrows at once (ON A ** CAMEL!)
Ptolemaic era
Mini map replaced for a navigation type one (like Skyrim and Horizon)
You will have to enhance your hidden blade (I think it says something along the lines of stealth kills not being a one hit kill anymore)
Free form combat, no counters, has an adrenaline thing that builds up as you fight
Horses and camels confirmed
The Crocodile is indeed a target!
Can dive underwater
Tomb raiding
They say nothing about the modern day
Anything is climbable including mountains and rocks
Can poison dead bodies, lure enemies, tame animals


About Scorpio

Originally Posted by hanspampel

Assassin’s Creed Origins is among the first gamest to support Microsoft’s ne Scorpio console, and we got some hand-on time with it so see if the game is noticably improved on the more powerful hardware. On PC, our demo was running at fairly steady 30 FPS. On Scorpio, the framerate felt more consistent, even at 4K resolutions. Other than that, it was difficult to see a huge improvement in our demo. The monitor was fairly small, so unless we pressed our faces against its glass we’d be hard-pressed to notice a tremendous difference from the standard version we’d been playing earlier.
Ubisoft said it got the game running within weeks of receiving their development kits, which speaks to the ease at which developers may be able to get their games ported to Scorpio. It’s important to note that both version of the games are still being optimized, so what we experienced may not reflect the final product. Still, it was great to see a game running on the new hardware, even if it’s ultimately too soon to make anything close to a final verdict

I know that, it just looks like a font that's on a different layer from the magazine, but if there's scans out, then I guess it's real.

So wait, the setting is late Ptolemaic Egypt instead of pre-Hellenic dynastic Egypt? Kinda bummed by that. At least it means we'll probably meet Caesar, Mark Antony, and Augustus, and possibly go to Rome.

This sounds interesting, and I say that as someone who completely lost interest in franchise prior to the start of this gen, and hasn't played an AC game in years. This could be good, but I'm still approaching it with caution nonetheless. Fascinating setting, though. Also, Scorpio support is expected, but no mention of PRO support? Surely there will be PRO support, right?

I didn't think I'd say this again about an Assassin's Creed game, but judging from the scans the visual style and colors that they're using look incredible. I thought Egypt looked kind of flat before and perhaps it still does, but it looks like a great setting nonetheless. The info sounds great too.

Assuming the secret character is female the only thing that makes me less excited about this is the Cleopatra time period is kind of lame. I'd much rather it be earlier.
