Assassin's Creed Origins: Pre-Order Buying Guide

Check out all the pre-order versions for Assassin's Creed Origins!

Set to release on October 27 of this year for PS4, Xbox one, and PC, Assassin’s Creed Origins is the tenth major installment in the Assassin’s Creed series, and the sequel to 2015’s Assassin’s Creed Syndicate. This time around, the game is set in Ancient Egypt -- a thousand years before the rest of the series' timeline. It’ll act as a prequel to the franchise, unveiling the origins of the Assassin’s Brotherhood.

In addition, Origins aims to reinvent the franchise with a revised combat system that focuses on weapon hit boxes and positioning instead of timed animations. Enemies will have the same freedom, meaning you’ll have to implement more strategy to your attacks.

There will be six different editions of the game for fans to pre-order before the game official launches later this year. Each edition offers a variety of perks, and all pre-orders will come with a bonus mission called "Secrets of the Pyramids". So let's take a look at what's on offer, and which one is best for you to pick up.
