The seventh major installment in the Ubisoft’s best-selling action game series. Plot wise, Assassin’s Creed: Empire is a sort of prequel to the entire series, taking players so far back in time as none other installment did – to the ancient Egypt, long before the two opposing orders of Assassins and Templar were founded. Players play the part of a slave, a distant ancestor to Altair – the protagonist of the first Assassin’s Creed. Concerning mechanics, the title does not differ significantly from previous installments of the series, still being primarily an adventure game, supplemented with action sequences and carefully planned assassinations. The game world was, of course, with reverence typical of the franchise, adapted to the new setting, bringing back things like the possibility to mount animals or use boats. On the technical side, Empire is said to avoid relying on the achievements of previous installments, while our area of activity is approximately three times larger than what was offered by Assassin’s Creed IV.
