Taking place in Ancient Egypt, you’ll take on the role of Bayek, an Assassin who will go on to form the early foundations of the Assassin brotherhood. In a more expansive and reactive world, Origins is seeking to bring the series out of its comfort zone, and into a broader space that will push players to learn the mysteries of Egypt, while getting in a few sneaky kills along the way.

Catharsis is the name of the game in Wolfenstein II, and along with a Switch release coming soon, there will be plenty of opportunities to unleash against the Nazi horde.
