Spend two minutes with this Assassin’s Creed Origins live action trailer and you may be sold on the game’s vision.
Ubisoft usually produces live action trailers to accompany the launch of its games, but this is one on another level. With Assassin’s Creed: Origins’ release date getting closer, the publisher has put out a live action treatment of the game’s story.
The trailer is well-produced, showing a mostly accurate version of ancient Egypt. It’s set to Nicholas Britell’s The Middle of the World, which you may have previously heard in the film Moonlight.
Narrated by the same actor who plays the protagonist in Origins, the trailer sets the scene pretty well, especially when dealing with a secretive organisation like the Assassins.
Assassin’s Creed Origins is out October 27 on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
