Assassin’s Creed: Origins has arrived, taking gamers back to the beginning of the Assassin’s Creed lineage, and talk show host Conan O’Brien has had his chance to play the game in his latest episode of Clueless Gamer.
Of course, with any Clueless Gamer episode, nothing is straightforward. Conan is joined by NFL player Aaron Rodgers, whose current injury attracts the attention of O’Brien, possibly a little too much.
Set in ancient Egypt with a new (and possibly first) assassin protagonist named Bayek, the game features vast open deserts, deadly swamps and period weapons, along with a whole bunch of new features, such as the ability to light arrows on fire and use your eagle companion to tag enemies and scout the landscape. It looks to be more of what we’ve come to love from the franchise, but with a distinctively different setting that’s been needed in AC games.
