Assassin’s Creed Origins has a new CGI trailer. That means none of this is real, but hey it still looks pretty. Aired at Microsoft’s pre-Gamescom event, the new footage shows Cleopatra, Julius Caesar, and Ptolemy will all play a role in the game. Also there will be pink and purple dye pits.
Normally you’d expect a video game event to be ceremonially opened by, say, a video game executive, but Europe’s big 2017 show—GamesCom, in Köln—will be kicked off on August 22 by none other than the Leader Of The Free World herself, German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
