Ubisoft is promoting its new "Assassin's Creed: Origins" game with a cinematic, Hollywood-style trailer exploring the mythical origins of the Creed Brotherhood, directed by Somesuch's Daniel Wolfe.

The film, by DDB Paris, like the game takes place in Ancient Egypt and is set to the dramatic strains of "The Middle of the World" by Nicholas Britell. It depicts a number of mysterious assasins committing murder in stealthy and deadly ways; snakes, knives and strangulation are involved. "I'm not an army. I'm not a man. I'm a creed," says the narrator.

We're told the production required 200 extras, plus as many costumes and numerous species of animals (horses, camels, goats, snakes and birds of prey to name but a few.) With its blockbuster movie trailer-style paciness, this will have you intrigued even if you're not a fan of the game.

"Assassin's Creed: Origins" will be available to buy on PC and consoles on October 27th and on Xbox One X at its launch on Nov. 7. The full version of the trailer is running online, and shorter versions will run on TV across EMEA markets.
