After a little break from the series, Ubisoft is back with their awesome Assassins Creed franchise, this time whisking us off to visit the delights of Ancient Egypt during the Ptolemaic period, as we look to uncover the secret fictional history of real-world events.

The story explores the centuries-long feud between the Brotherhood of Assassins, who fight for peace by promoting liberty and The Order of the Ancients, the forerunners to the Templar Order, who desire peace through forceful order.

Assassins Creed: Origins is once more played from a third-person perspective, with a number of quests to complete throughout the vast open-world environment, all of which can be travelled on foot, horseback, camel-back or boat. With a ton of side quests and locations to explore, as well as revised mechanics throughout, Assassins Creed: Origins is set to bring the much-needed change to the series.

If you’re a fan of the previous games, or just like all things stealth, you’ll be keen to hear you can jump into the latest Assassins Creed adventure right now on either Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC via purchase through the respective stores.

There are three different versions available to purchase, with the Standard, Deluxe and Gold Edition’s all now available for the price of £54.99, £62.99 and £79.99 respectively. Full details of which are listed below. The Season Pass can be grabbed for a standalone £29.99 should you decide you want to go down that route a bit later, whilst a Deluxe Upgrade will set you back £7.99. There are also numerous Helix add-on packs should you feel the need to splash even more cash.
