Game News Assassin’s Creed Origins: A sumptuous trip to Egypt for free this weekend!
Ubisoft took advantage of its livestream celebrating the 15th anniversary of the Assassin’s Creed franchise to announce that Assassin’s Creed Origins is coming to our machines for free for a weekend.
It was a bit at the last minute that Ubisoft finally booked a slot among all the conferences that have been held since last week. An appointment specifically dedicated to Assassin’s Creed was therefore made at the start of the evening to find out what awaited us on the occasion of the 15th anniversary of the license..
A nice gift
Obviously, Assassin’s Creed Origins was expected and for good reason, the title will be playable for free for a long weekend, from this Thursday, June 16 at 6 p.m. until Monday, June 20, at the same time.
Moreover, in order to be ready as soon as the servers open, the game is already available for preloading, whether on PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5 and Stadia. This is a good opportunity for players who have not yet been able to get their hands on this opus to travel to the heart of ancient Egypt, where the brotherhood of Assassins finds its origins.
Relive the Origins adventure in 60 FPS
And here is another good opportunity to discover Assassin’s Creed Origins in a version enhanced by the latest update. Indeed, since June 2, the game offers an even smoother and more immersive experience thanks to an enhanced frame rate of 60 frames per second.
Note that this visual rendering is only available for the lucky owners of a latest generation console, namely the PlayStation 5 from Sony or the Xbox Series X / S from Microsoft. Moreover, as part of the livestream, a long session of gameplay in 60 FPS was presented by the Ubisoft teams.
About the Summer Game Fest
What is Summer Game Fest?
No E3 this year, but we can still count on another world-class event: the Summer Game Fest, a big show dedicated to announcements of video games to come this year or the following years. It was in 2020 that journalist and host Geoff Keighley launched this now unmissable festival for the first time. Last year, the show featured stunning images from Elden Ring; so inevitably, the third iteration raises high expectations.
When does Summer Game Fest 2022 start?
The Summer Game Fest is this Thursday, June 9 at 8 p.m. The show will once again be followed by a Day of the Devs session devoted to the independent scene.
How to follow the Summer Game Fest 2022?
On JV, we will react live to announcements from the LeStream channel alongside Maxildan and Aymeric Lallée in particular. The show will also be directly visible as a teaser on JV’s homepage. And for those who prefer reading, you will of course find our news throughout the conference. A written summary will also be available
What is the program for Summer Game Fest 2022?
Among the games not to miss, there is in particular the heir to Dead Space, The Callisto Protocol, which shows us its first gameplay images. For its part Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 presents us with its first level. Also on the program: Gotham Knights, Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course, the first game from Aaryn Flynn’s studio (ex-Bioware) Nightingale, the JRPG One Piece Odyssey, the free-to-play Warframe or even Planet of Lana. Geoff Keighley further announced: “We have a few new game announcements for this show and hopefully a few surprises if all holds together. But it’s definitely a show that mostly focuses on things that are foretold.”
