Assassins Creed in Egypt, yes please! Although the game was growing stale, they recreate the cities very well. That's the main thing that keeps me coming back.

I love exploring the cities and climbing the landmarks. When I went to Italy in RL I geeked out, it was exciting because if felt like I had already been there. Eg I could describe details of inside of the Pantheon before I stepped inside

I know I am going to get it so not sure why I even watched, but it does look incredible.  Gave up on the gameplay video as it does have spoilers in it.

Looks like the year off may have done the series some good, i enjoyed most of the games but the last few haven't been the best, could be a return to form here

Yeah, looks like a great Assassin game. Not a pirate simulator either, win!

Interesting setting. Combat looks to have changed which is a plus. Loot drops .... Not sure how well that will be integrated, wait and see.

Using the eagle is just another Ubisoft drone  :facepalm: that was bad enough in ghost recon.

Big frame rate drops reported at E3 playing on oneX, hopefully can be optimised.

As with all new ass creeds, I'm not sure I'll bother. I really enjoyed the first couple, but then it all got a bit stale and I haven't played any since. I enjoyed the story, but now I feel like I've missed too much.
They need to do a 'previously on..' video like dues ex did. (I'm assuming all the stories are related like they were with the first few games )

Honestly, the 'modern world's' story of abstergo and the animus etc. all got so very convoluted and confusing that I gave up paying attention to it, just took each game on as a stand alone story. (aside from AC2 - Brotherhood... those were clearly linked, I miss Ezio haha)

But if you feel like watching an 18min youtube video.. here you go:

Reports from e3 indicate the current build is full of bugs - obviously there is time to polish, but not a good showing considering past issues. Also, the amount/seriousness of issues were highlighted as not being normal for most games so close to release.

I don't want to site source incorrectly as I have been watching several YouTube shows - from memory it was giantbomb talking amongst themselves about their hands-on experience.

Looks pretty good so far, but not convinced it's a must buy yet. Also still don't get the point of all the 'modern world' nonsense after playing the last few AC games

They tend to have lightened up on the modern world stuff. It was to give the game some context I guess, ie. why dive into the Animus anyway!

The hype is grabbing me on this, really been wanting an Egyptian themed AC for years and it'll look gorgeous on my PS4 Pro in 4K and HOPEFULLY HDR.

Developers these days seem to only do HDR support for Xbox One. I think it was Project Cars 2 that has HDR support on Xbox One S but not Pro.

I don't have much interest in this game, but could possibly get it later depending on how good it turns out to be. Hopefully certain issues and jankiness have been smoothed out.

I think the reviewer may have got that wrong, or maybe a patch introduced hdr for the game on PS4pro. Edit: hdr was added in day-1 patch
