Assassin’s Creed Origins gets a slick live-action trailer

To celebrate its impending launch, Ubisoft has unveiled a brand new live-action trailer for Assassin’s Creed Origins which is titled “I Am.”

The trailer, which was directed by Daniel Wolfe and which features the Nicholas Britell song “The Middle of the World,” takes viewers on a fly-by tour of Ancient Egypt, showing how the actions of a single person, in this case the game’s protagonist Bay-yek, can give rise to an entire creed of assassins. According to Ubisoft, the trailer used “authentic film role” and some 200 extra to help make the world depicted in the trailer feel more real and visceral, and it certainly shows.

Assassin’s Creed Origins is set to launch on October 27 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
