The second Trials of the Gods challenge is now live in Assassin’s Creed Origins, pitting players against Sobek, the Egyptian’s crocodile-headed God of the Nile.
Trials of the Gods are periodically updated combat events that can be found around the map of Origins, in which players face off against a rotating roster of Egyptian deities and get rewarded with high-level gear for vanquishing them. The previous challenger was Anubis, the Egyptian God of Death, and now players can go head-to-crocodile-head with Sobek and his massive jaws, as long as they’ve completed the game’s Aya story quest first.
Players have until November 28th to beat Sobek, who can be found in the Herakleion Nome region, and earn his prize weapon, along with a piece of a special gear set that will be complete upon beating all the different Trials. Ubisoft has confirmed that each Trial will become available again at later dates, in case a player misses one the first time around, but it is currently unclear if the returning challenges will still hand out pieces of the gear set.
The Herakleion Nome region also plays host to another of the game’s deadliest foes; a war elephant. Despite the beast’s fortitude, a player recently managed to take one down using only their fists, so the next logical step would be to beat Sobek in the same manner, right?
