Following up on Ubisoft’s promise of continuing development on Assassin’s Creed: Origins instead of releasing a new Assassin’s Creed game in 2018, Ubisoft has announced Origin’s newest additions for April.
PC players are privileged to have an all-new feature, one never before seen in any of the Assassin’s Creed games: an interactive animus control panel. Not much information has been released about what can be done with this new control panel, but it will be a feature in the Uplay overlay.
So far the details are as follows: 75 parameters can be changed, three presets will be available at launch, and player created presets can be shared. This isn’t much information to go on, but from what little Ubisoft explained, it is sure to be a unique experience. The trend to offer players the software to mod their own game is a strong one in the industry at the moment. Similar moves have been made by Bethesda with Fallout 4 and Skyrim’s Special Edition.
Ubisoft also announced that the Trials of the Gods will continue through April with 4 distinct challenges for each week of April.
Ubisoft is one of the leading developers of open world video games. One of their most beloved franchises, Far Cry, got a new addition to its line up just last week and it was released to praise from consumers and critics alike.
Over the long existence of Ubisoft, several standalone games and franchises have emerged from the developer. Watch Dogs, Assassin’s Creed, Rainbow Six, Splinter Cell, and Far Cry are only a few of the world-renowned franchises created by Ubisoft.
The company has had some low points, like the release of Assassin’s Creed; Unity, which was riddled with game breaking bugs and graphical errors. Thanks to the recent success of Assassin’s Creed: Origins and Far Cry 5, the company is back on track.
