Live action trailers for games are always cool. It doesn’t matter what game they happen to be advertising, it’s cool since we’re getting a glimpse of what it might look like in reality. In the case of this trailer, the game is Assassin’s Creed: Origins and the setting is ancient Egypt. Check it out!

There’s not a whole lot of fun video game-y spectacle to be found in this trailer, but the glimpse of the world we get is cool nonetheless. It’s so easy to forget just how difficult and dirty life in the ancient world was, so to see that aspect of it shown in a video game trailer was rather surprising. It makes one wonder just how realistic they’re trying to make this latest entry in the Assassin’s Creed franchise. I’m not sold on the game yet, but now I’m thinking that it’s at least worth keeping an eye on.
What do you think of this trailer? What about Assassin’s Creed in general?
