Ubisoft are going the extra mile when it comes to their publishing line-up for Assassin’s Creed Origins. Let’s take a look shall we?….

Assassins’ Creed Origins is set for release on October 27th but there is a lot of other stuff to look forward to asides from the game itself. These include the following:

Assassin’s Creed Origins Desert Oath, a novel published by Ubisoft & Penguin Books, and written by Oliver Bowden in collaboration with the development team, is a prequel set before the story of the game. It portrays a young Bayek following his father’s footsteps, leaving the peace of his hometown, Siwa, in search of answers. Follow Bayek through a journey that will take him along the Nile and across a country in turmoil as he faces the dangers and mysteries of the Medjay’s path.

A miniseries of four official Assassin’s Creed Origins Comics, written by Anne Toole and published by Titan Comics, will explore the first years of the Assassins’ Order, crossing over to new territories and introducing new characters as well as notable historical figures.

The Art of Assassin’s Creed Origins, an art book published by Titan Books, will transport readers back into Ancient Egypt, one of the most mysterious periods in history. Readers will explore the world of Assassin’s Creed® Origins as they discover its secrets and forgotten myths, and learn more about the characters, enemies, weapons and majestic landscapes of the game, through a vast collection of art, including: concept sketches, city plans, character studies, and fully rendered paintings along with comments and notes from the artists and developers.

The Complete Official Guide, a guidebook published by PRIMA Games, is an indispensable tool for dedicated players. The guide contains a general weapons and equipment guide, and a 100% completion walkthrough, along with detailed maps flagged with all locations, collectibles and targets. Owners of the Complete Official Guide will also have exclusive access to a mobile-friendly e-guide version, optimised for a second-screen experience.
