Journey into Ancient Egypt, the most mysterious place in history, during a crucial period that will shape the world. Discover the secrets behind the Great Pyramids, forgotten myths, the last pharaohs, and – engraved in long-lost hieroglyphics – the origin story of the Assassin’s Brotherhood.”
Not only did a cinematic story trailer get released, but a gameplay walkthrough recorded using the Xbox One X in 4K. The clip shows Siwa, the main protagonist’s home town. As players take control of a hawk to scout the surrounding area for enemies. As with most Assassin’s Creed titles, there is lots of stealthy and stabby action to be had.
