The loading screens of Assassin’s Creed Origins apparently hold secrets to the game’s connection to modern day, a connection that has been a fairly constant part of the series’ otherwise historical narrative thus far.
In an interview with Reddit user TDCAUGirl– moderator of a Brazilian Assassin’s Creed blog- live content director Bruno Guérin advised that fans pay close attention to the symbols that can be seen in the loading screens that come up after a player dies and is desynchronized. The symbols apparently resemble those found in the recent Assassin’s Creed film, which TDCAUGirl suggests could pertain to a new version of the Animus in Origins.
The Animus is a complex machine used over the course of the Assassin’s Creed series that serves as the vehicle through which people in the present can view the memories of their player-controlled ancestors. The Animus seen in the film was an absurdly extravagant mobile rig, when compared to the simplistic table design from the first game, and whoever is controlling Origins‘ protagonist could be hooked up to an even newer version.
Assassin’s Creed Origins is nearly upon us, dropping October 27th on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. We already have the game’s launch trailer, showing us the turmoil we will soon face in the sands of ancient Egypt.
