According to the most recent rumors, the new Assassin’s Creed game from Ubisoft will not be dubbed “Empire”, but “Origins”. The game is still taking place in ancient Egypt, and from what it seems it will offer players an amazing freedom. This might even eclipse the previous games, and people claim that it will enjoy extended boat mechanics.

An Extensive Game

Various sources have reported for the WWG gaming website that Assassin’s Creed: Origins is going to be quite extensive. They also suggested that it will represent the biggest effort Ubisoft ever made. From what we gathered until now, Origins will take place in ancient Egypt, but we don’t know exactly in what time. The sources do indeed talk about boat traveling across the Nile and in the Mediterranean Sea, but boat traveling in Egypt goes as far as 3500 BC, which doesn’t really help us.

Many are guessing that Assassin’s Creed: Origins is set in the Hellenistic Period in Alexandria. Moreover, the game will let you see the alternation between Greeks and Egyptians that happened under the Ptolemy Soter I in the Ptolemaic Kingdom.

If this turns out to be true, gamers will see some great feats of this exciting cultural worlds, which includes the Pharos in Alexandria, the first lighthouse in the world. To this they might add the library of Alexandria, paired with the amazing Hellistic culture that flourished within the city.

More Freedom to Explore

For this reason, the project may be one of the most extensive ones Ubisoft has ever developed. Needless to say, nobody is complaining about that and all players are anxious to get a glimpse of this fascinating world.
