Assassin's Creed Origins (PS4)
Assassin's Creed Origins (PS4)

Action 27 October 2017

The seventh major installment in the Ubisoft's best-selling action game series. Plotwise, Assassin's Creed: Empire is a sort of prequel to the entire series, taking players so far back in time as none other installment did - to the ancient Egypt, long before the two opposing orders of Assassins and Templars were founded. Players play the part of a slave, a distant ancestor to Altair - the protagonist of the first Assassin's Creed. Concerning mechanics, the title does not differ significantly from previous installments of the series, still being primarily an adventure game, supplemented with action sequences and carefully planned assassinations. The game world was, of course, with reverence typical of the franchise, adapted to the new setting, bringing back things like the possibility to mount animals or use boats. On the technical side, Empire is said to avoid relying on the achievements of previous installments, while our area of activity is approximately three times larger than what was offered by Assassin's Creed IV.

Action 23 October 2015

It is the ninth major installment in a best-selling action game series, this time developed by Ubisoft Quebec.

Although the game retains all of its key elements, gameplay mechanics went through some changes. The streets are full of carriages, which, just as in Grand Theft Auto series, can be hijacked and used to move around the city. Another essential element stems from the fact of leading Jacob’s gang, and which, among other things, results in street brawls with opposing groups. The game faithfully recreates the topography of the capital city of England, so you can easily find and recognize such landmarks as Westminster Palace or St. Paul’s Cathedral. The heroes also gained new weapons and gadgets as well as previously unseen abilities.
