Assassin’s Creed: Origins has its launch trailer

Less than four days remain before Assassin’s Creed: Origins begins its journey through Ancient Egypt, and all of the pyramids, catacombs, underground waterways and deserts that formed it. Thus, Ubisoft has released the game’s visually impressive launch trailer, which is comprised of in-game footage that was captured in 4K, presumably using an Xbox One X.

With lots of sand underfoot and a surprising amount of violence on its surface, this Assassin’s Creed: Origins launch trailer does its job admirably. There’s lots to gawk at, too, including beautiful scenery, aerial shots and some visceral action featuring swords, blood, horses and at least one angry crocodile.

Assassin’s Creed: Origins is set to launch this Friday, October 27th. Please make sure to check back for our full review, which will be published relatively soon.
