The first look involved 4K gameplay from the new Xbox One X console. Some of the exciting features of the game include:
Horseback. The footage from the gameplay trailer showed Bayek on horseback travelling via Siwa.
Sailing. We also saw naval travel in Assassin’s Creed origins, and you will be able to explore the large map by boat and on foot and horseback.
