No, this isn’t a joke. This is the truth.
It seems that every week, another Spanish-language game gets released. In the case of the recent release of Assassin’s Creed Origins: Black Flag, the game has become a sort of cultural phenomenon with a ton of new releases coming out every week. This year’s is the latest, and it’s a game I’ve been waiting to play for a long time.
Ive been a fan of Assassins Creed since it first came out, and when I saw the trailer for Origins, I knew this game was going to be right up my alley. It was exciting to see a new take on the Assassin’s Creed lore and to see the gameplay elements that the franchise excelled at.
I’m not going to try to explain Assassin Creed Origins in spanish, but I will tell you that it works like a gazillion hours of Assassin’s Creed. I love this game, and I’m so glad I got to play it.
Assassin Creed Origins is set in an alternate future where the Assassins are not in control of the Assassins anymore. What you see in the trailer is the original Assassin’s Creed from the 30’s. It’s the story of the Templar, the original Assassins, and their fight to protect mankind. As a fan of the franchise I was excited to see what the team had planned for the 20’s and 30’s versions of the game.
The game has a couple of key differences to the originals. The first is that it’s set more than a hundred years later and the Assassin’s are a different breed because of it. The other is that the Assassins’ are human, and they fight with a brand new type of super powers called “Skyshades”.
The Assassins were a group of knights led by a Templar who were dedicated to fighting against the evil Order of the Assassins headed by the infamous Red Templar. The Templar’s orders were to protect mankind, and they were the only ones who could see the future. They were also the only ones who could be killed by the Order of the Assassins’ new Super Powers.
As it turns out, Colt Vahn is an amnesiac who seems to have woken up on a beach with no memory of why he’s on Deathloop’s party island, Blackreef. That’s okay though because someone has left him vague messages in the sky about what to do. Our goal in Deathloop is to take out eight Visionaries, intelligent party-lovers who’ve locked an island into one repeating day so they can piss about for eternity.
They’re not all that clear on what to do with the rest of them. But we get a few hints. One of the Visionaries is a guy named Jack, who’s been known to do weird things like fly on his own rocket. Another Visionary lives in a cave that only he can enter, which isn’t a great idea. The leader of the Order of the Assassins is a guy named Ben.
I don’t know if you can tell, but we’re in spanish and the characters don’t speak English very well. They do though.
