Petting Cats in Assassin’s Creed: Origins
Let’s face it, this is why you’re really here. Jane and Ellen from Outside Xbox have had the opportunity to go hands-on with Assassin’s Creed: Origins, and they took that literally.

Petting animals in games isn’t really a new thing, but being able to pet cats in Ancient Egypt is a game changer. The Assassin’s Creed series is known for its free-roam, open world design, which will no doubt encourage gamers to go out and just spend hours petting the local feline population. And that’s a good thing in my book!
Tales From the Tomb
Finally, in order to pass the time between now and October 27th, Ubisoft has posted a series of 10 animated shorts on their YouTube channel, entitled Tales From the Tomb. In it, viewers can learn from scenes re-created from real Ancient Egyptian art to imagine how everyday life might have been affected by the presence of sinister secret Orders and acrobatic Assassins.
Assassin’s Creed: Origins is coming out on October 27 for PS4, PC, and Xbox One.
