Doctor Who Easter Egg Found In Assassin’s Creed: Origins
Easter eggs in video games have been around for ages. To see video game developers go out of their way to place something in a game that doesn’t necessarily belong there shows that there is still fun in the work place. The latest discovery is found in the recently released Assassin’s Creed: Origins, which features a glorious Doctor Who Easter egg.
Doctor Who’s international fandom has made its way into the world of Assassin’s Creed. If you think about it, it kind of makes sense. Both properties focus on history mixed with futuristic sci-fi elements. As Whovians are well aware, the Doctor’s means of travel are aboard his stolen T.A.R.D.I.S. (Time And Relative Dimension In Space), which most often resembles a blue Police box. No other item from the long-running sci-fi series is quite as recognizable as the T.A.R.D.I.S., and it can be found in Origins’ ancient Egypt.
Some Easter eggs are blatant and easy to spot. The Doctor Who Easter egg in the latest Assassin’s Creed title, however, is easy to miss. To find the T.A.R.D.I.S., players will have to lead the game’s protagonist, Bayek, to Letopolis. Pack some Egyptian cotton swim trunks and dive into the water. Down at the bottom, among the sand and rocks, a petrified T.A.R.D.I.S. can be found, partially buried in the dirt. Surely the Doctor left it parked there while adventuring in Egypt’s pyramids.
The Doctor Who Easter egg discovery was posted on Reddit with the original poster adding photographic evidence on Imgur. It’s almost guaranteed that this is only one of many Easter eggs hiding throughout Origins, but more than likely the only Doctor Who related one. Stay tuned to DFTG as more discoveries are revealed.
Assassin’s Creed: Origins is available now for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. What are your thoughts on the Doctor Who Easter egg? Have you found any other hidden treasures in Origins?
