Assassins Creed Origins |OT| A Far Cry From Historical Fact

Started playing it this weekend. Mixed feelings so far. I have a 65" B7A OLED and was expecting to be blown away. That is not the case. I have only played two games on this TV since recently getting it. This and Forza 7. Forza 7 was WOW, this just doesn't give me that same *pop*. It looks good, but looks rough at certain times as well.

As far as game play, its not bad but the game itself just hasn't drawn me in for some reason. I will keep playing but we'll see if I can get through the entire game.

Oh man, I thought my game was glitched. He kept saying that every time I respawned, even when fighting a boss. Just finished the game about 15 minutes ago, and as with all AC games, I loved the dinking around for a while but finishing the story was a total slog. I actually dinked around for about 35 hours so I got my moneys worth but they really need to 1) Fix those damn load times. 2) Get writers who don't make what could be a great story sound so dull and scripted. Overall, I rank it above AC 1, 3 , Brotherhood , Revalations and Syndicate but below AC2 and 4.
 
I started the game. It threw me into some revenge story that had no context. Some revenge I should care about, but I don't care. I was already bored at the beginning of it.

Maybe I'll be so bored that I'll continue it.

I have yet to get the season pass but now all the content is out I was thinking about it. Do you get the level increase and new skills without it or do you need the dlc that came out today ??

The Last of Us may be third person, but it is hardly third person.

DO.

NOT.

WASTE.

YOUR.

MONEY.

ON.

THE.

SEASON.

PASS.

Both expansions together cost $30, while the season pass is $40. The season pass is the two expansions + two costume packs.

I have no idea what Ubisoft was thinking in charging $40. Normally, the season pass is supposed to be cheaper than the DLC, not the other way around.

I bought them on there own and saved a few pounds. Thanks Bud.
 
And remember with Ubisoft, Season Pass does not give you all the DLC so you are doubly punished.

It is, Gold Edition - Deluxe Edition - Game = Season Pass.

I got duped when I bought the season pass for Watch Dogs 2 and noticed there was a $20 costume pack that was not available to me.
Never again.

But I will buy the Gold edition of Far Cry 5 because at least it will include everything.

The gold edition of Farcry 5 is worth it to me since it includes Farcry 3 classic. That alone is worth $20. With Amazon Prime I’m getting it for $80, so I figure the main game is worth $50, FC3 $20 and I’d wager that the remaining 3 DLCs will be worth $10!

Been playing the newest DLC. It’s certainly very fun, but I have to admit that I’m now burned out on the game. Upgrading my gear and abilities no longer has the same excitement.

Same for me. I think they took too long releasing the New Game Plus.
Even with leveled enemies, it doesn't seem worth the effort to redo anything.

Yeah, new game plus is a joke. It basically allows you to keep your gear and they turn auto leveling for enemies on, but the XP earned is the same. If they had increased the level cap to like 100, it would have been better.
 
I'm making it my mission to never by Deluxe/Gold Edition of games ever again (unless it's Forza Horizon). I beat AC Origins (my goodness was it boring after about 40 hours of the most tedious side-quests). I beat the game, and have ZERO desire to go back to it, even with the Season Pass owned.
 
Is The Curse Of the Pharaohs the last DLC or do we think there might be some more?

Thinking of uninstalling if thats the end of it, free myself 70 gigs worth - but if there are plans for anymore, I may leave it installed another few weeks.

Nope.

There is no more DLC planned.
While the DLC was fun but I felt it missed some opportunities to move the story forward such as the Assassins role in Mark Antony and Cleopatra.

And whether if there was confirmation that Aya was responsible for creating the Templars.
 
The patch went up this week including New Game + and the Discovery Mode, anyone had a chance to try it out yet?
New Game+? Given how easy these games are anyway, this seems unnecessary.

How big is the new area compared to Sinai?

It's cheaper to buy the expansions individually. The outfits are not worth the extra €10 IMO.
Or wait for the inevitable "Complete Edition" to come out in stores then wait for that to drop in price. Full game and DLC for usually less than $30.

There's the Gold Edition on the store already, game plus Season Pass: https://store.playstation.com/en-ie/product/EP0001-CUSA05625_00-EDITIONGLDACE000

The DLC's for this one sound a little more substantial than the previous games in fairness, but I'm probably going to wait for the Season Pass to drop a little further before I bite.
 
LOL. Nice. Though, that only looks like a digital version. You gotta have a physical copy since those will drop in price much faster. A lot of digital copies rarely drop in price, if at all.

That's good. I've never bothered with the DLC in any AC games. Always seemed to expensive and with mediocre reviews.
 
The second DLC is by far the best DLC experience I have ever had. Its like a whole new game, Origins 2.0.

It was a pleasure to plat this game and 100% all 3 dlcs.
 
Finally started playing this and with no manual to guide me, I'm left a bit confused. Help a beginner out?

The game starts Creedish enough, but then I get control of my bird Senu and can have her fly around to find animals to hunt. Is there a way to have Senu actually kill the prey, or do I have to go there myself? Because with no minimap, I'm totally confused about where I am and which direction I'm facing when I relinquish control of Senu and back to Bayek.

(Edit: Senu gives you an ability to spot things and then mark them. Once you mark them, their icons appear in Bayek's field of vision and you can go to them.)
