Top 5 things to look forward to in Assassin’s Creed Origins

2. A great cast of characters

Will Bayek be the next Ezio Auditore?


There is no doubt that Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed games have featured some of the most memorable characters in gaming, from Assassin’s Creed II’s brave hero Ezio Auditore to Black Flag’s charming rogue Edward Kenway, there’s been no shortage of interesting characters in the Assassin’s Creed games.

It looks like Ubisoft is will continue the tradition and Assassin’s Creed Origins will feature a great character or two, including protagonist Bayek, who throughout the course of the game will become the first Assassin. Bayek will be squaring off against the mysterious Order of the Ancients, although we don’t know yet who’s the villain behind this secret, proto-Templar order.

Of course, part of the charm of playing Origins is to meet historical characters like Cleopatra and Julius Caesar. The former was the world’s richest and most powerful woman at the time, while Caesar had the might of the Roman Empire behind him, meaning it will be interesting to see which side protagonist Bayek takes in the power struggle between the two leaders, no doubt.
