Last week Sony showcased a plethora of videogame trailers in celebration of their PlayStation 4 console at the Paris Games Week conference. However, while games such as Marvel’s Spider-Man gave us glimpses of web-slinging action and colorful fun, one game decided to lean into more raw, violent emotion to market their product.
After a one-year hiatus to refresh the franchise, the beloved series is back with Assassin’s Creed: Origins. The game is set in Ptolemaic Egypt and takes place in the 40s B.C. Bayek of Siwa, one of the last Egyptian medjay, and his wife Aya are the main characters.
