During Microsoft’s E3 2017 press conference, Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed: Origins was revealed with the game’s first visually enhanced trailers using Xbox One X’s improved graphics engine.

Along with the initial cinematic trailer, Ubisoft provided some in-game footage, further augmenting Xbox One X’s 4K resolution and increasing the hype for the next installment in the Assassin’s Creed universe. During the gameplay trailer, viewers were able to witness the player-character (PC) riding around on horseback, using the improved Eagle Vision from the previous games, using famed parkour techniques while shooting a bow, looting different weapons to upgrade the assassin’s arsenal, and delving into some of the game’s combat using a sword and shield combo. During the gameplay trailer, the game’s protagonist, Bayek, narrates a bit of his journey through enemy territory while looking for his target.

Watch the aforementioned cinematic and gameplay trailers below:

Assassin’s Creed: Origins will be available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Xbox One X on October 27, 2017.

Troy Baker has spoken about his return to the role of Joel in Naughty Dog’s upcoming title The Last of Us Part II.

During an exclusive interview with OnlySP at Supanova Comic Con & Gaming, Baker was asked how he felt to return to the role alongside Ashley Johnson, who plays Ellie in the sequel to the acclaimed 2013 title.

“The first day we were on set was when we shot [the PSX reveal] trailer,” Baker revealed. “We go through rehearsals and stuff, and we walk through it, and things get real serious all of a sudden, when we heard both of our voices. When you put everything together, that’s when Ashley goes away and Troy goes away, and you’re left with Ellie and Joel.”

Baker noted that the first time creative director Neil Druckmann spoke to him about the potential of a sequel was during the British Academy Video Game Awards in March 2014.

Check out a clip from our exclusive interview with Troy Baker and Nolan North—including the revelation of North’s return as David and the significant musical numbers featured in the game—above, and stay tuned for the full interview.

Druckmann recently revealed that Baker and Johnson had completed their main work on the game, describing it as “the most ambitious cinematic shoot we’ve ever done.” Before that, he stated that the final scene of The Last of Us Part II has been shot, with Laura Bailey recently completing her performance capture for the title. Druckmann also revealed that the rapper Logic and actor Travis Willingham will also be appearing in the game.

Earlier this month, a screen of the game’s weapon upgrade system was leaked in a promotional video, with some noting that weapon variation may be present in the game’s revision of combat.
