Hello Twitch world! Ashraf Ismail, Game Director for Assassin’s Creed Origins here!

I’m excited to have the opportunity to personally talk about our collaboration with Twitch and reveal our special Assassin’s Creed Origins items for Twitch Prime members! Also it’s not often that I get to speak to the Twitch community and I am in awe of what you all have done for video games and for this industry in general. I love this industry and you’re taking it to bigger places! Thank you!

I’ll start with a little about Assassin’s Creed Origins and what we have tried to do with it.

Assassin’s Creed Origins has been a passion project for us. Set in Ancient Egypt and telling the story of the birth of the Brotherhood, we started right after completing Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag. Our intention was to take Assassin’s Creed somewhere fresh, modern and new. We wanted to reinvent the experience of Assassin’s Creed but still make it an authentic game within the series. What that meant for us is bringing the open world of Ancient Egypt to life in all its beauty, diversity, mysticism and awe. This meant a new combat system built from ground up to be dynamic, versatile and taking advantage of the new RPG layer of the game. We wanted lots of loot, bosses and gameplay challenge! Stealth is revamped to give more tools, options and abilities to cat and mouse with the AI. We wanted to tell all the amazing and wonderful stories of Ancient Egypt with our new Quest structure where anything can happen with our crazy AI world! This meant meeting Cleopatra and Caesar! We wanted players to play the game as they want with the playstyle they prefer! Whatever it may be!

We’ve built a game that we wanted to show well! A game where player to player you can have a very unique experience. The world can get quite chaotic if you push it, with lots of wonderful challenges and it is absolutely stunning! We wanted a game that you can take ownership of and give you great content to stream, which is obviously also great visibility for us! I am very proud of this game and want as many people as possible to enjoy it!

As we’ve been building the game these last 4 years, we’ve seen the Twitch community grow and do some incredible things! Focussing on players is a wonderful thing! At the end of the day we all love and play what this industry has to offer, together. On the floor here you can walk around lunch time and see people playing games or watching their favorite streamer. Some of us have tried to stream,… ahem,… and realized that it is a talent to do so!

I would love to see someone stream a built up Bayek 1-punch obliterating a War Elephant! =D

Or more realistically 1 shot-ting 5 enemies using bow, stealth and combat! With only 1 bow kill allowed! I did it once, it was of a fluke that sadly was not captured, I’d love to see much more talented players top that!

To show our appreciation for the Twitch community we have created some very unique items for Twitch Prime members:

· “Aguilar Outfit” — Run the rooftops of Alexandria or Memphis looking like Aguilar, hero of the Assassin’s Creed movie

· “Twitch Mount” — Ride through the Nile Delta or the desert sands in style with Partner.

· “Predator Gear Pack” — Show off your skills with these weapons: Immortal (Rare Sword), Adamant Reed (Rare Spear) and Quagga (Rare Predator Bow)

· “Drachma Pouch” — Here, take some (Ptolemaic) money

I sincerely hope you enjoy these extra unique items and have a blast with the game!

I am proud to work on a game where at its heart has a sense of inclusivity, diversity and a wonderful community. Something that the Twitch community knows very well!

We’ll be seeing you when we launch on October 27th!
