Assassin's Creed


 

A new animated short based on the recent Assassin’s Creed Origins offers an effective exhibition of the badassery hero Bayek is capable of, and at what price these skills may come.

The short video was created by Paperbox Creations alongside Ubisoft Hong Kong and posted to the game’s official Twitter. Aside from the precise and merciless killing demonstrated by Bayek, the video alludes to a subtle narrative based on the ancient Egyptian practice of weighing the heart of a deceased person against a feather. If the heart was lighter than the feather, it meant the person lived a good life and could ascend to the afterlife; heavier, and the person was bad and would be fed to the crocodile-head god Ammut. The end of the video cuts to the weighing of Bayek’s heart in the afterlife by the god Anubis, where the scales tease the virtue of his deeds.

In other Assassin’s Creed Origins news, the new installment is currently outselling 2015’s Assassin’s Creed Syndicate by a long shot. We here at EGM certainly think it deserves these sales, if you couldn’t tell from our review.
