Used the search function but I couldn't find it. Leaked on Facebook through UNILAD Gaming, but they have since deleted it. Can't embed it, so click click click.

Descendant of the First Civ bloodline
First Civ intertwined with mythology
Present Day returns; continues to explore story of Layla
Layla searching for First Civ knowledge and artifacts

Big Origins fan. The reboot was fantastic. But i am just not feeling this. Just seeing the enemies they almost look like a different paint job and done.

More Origins is good, but the naval bit is somewhat concerning, hoping they aren't forced this time. They got boring way too quickly in AC4.

Also that armor is pretty awesome on the female lead.

Bit disappointing that both characters have the same story, would have wished their stories were unique to them so you could replay as the other and discover new details and things from their perspectives.

Yeah, I'm skipping this one as well - haven't played an AC game since IV. I dunno what it is exactly, they've pretty much overhauled everything in the franchise but I'm just not feeling it and I'm usually a big sucker for open world games. It's just that the AC universe feels so uninspiring imo.
