Eurogamer Expo 2017 (EGX 2017) - Assassin's Creed Origins, Far Cry 5, Battlefront 2 oh and Dead Pixels 2
Eurogamer 2017 has finished and we are all returning back to reality after being graced with playing some of the best upcoming video games of 2017 and 2018. Video games that will don the PS4, Xbox One X and PC alike. EGX 2017 did not just serve up AAA titles though but we were blessed with a mighty EGX Rezzed section. Indie developers stole EGX 2017 for many with games like Bloody Zombies, Dead Cells, Raging Justice and more. Lets take at look at some of this years EGX highlights as I was fortunate enough to play more of the AAA sites across two days.
Assassin’s Creed Origins
Over the last few Assassin’s Creed games I’d lost interest. The franchise seemed to grow incredibly repetitive and stale with ever-growing similarities in the parkour and general gameplay mechanics. Queueing for Assassin’ Creed Origins took around two hours and was playable on the Xbox One X and PC. I played Assassin’s Creed Origins on the Xbox One X. Instantly I was hit at just how crisp and gorgeous the game looked. Despite being Alpha gameplay the textures, colours and details were on point. The Egyptian setting seemed attractive and a welcome change to the past Victorian, Colonial and Renaissance eras.
Assassin’s Creed Origins had some downsides. Camera angles seemed rigid and buggy but I don’t feel this is anything to be concerned about given the alpha demo gameplay. I’ve also never enjoyed the ridiculous amount of question marks on the compass and intricate menu systems. Assassin’s Creed Origin’s had way too much going on from that angle. I would have preferred a more streamlined compass system!

We're well in to the Playstation 4 and Xbox One and more recently the Nintendo Switch eras of gaming. Graphics had never looked so smooth and gameplay had never flowed so fluently. Let's not forget the triumphant last Generation of gaming with the Playstation 3, Xbox 360 and Nintendo Wii; all of which I have a lot of time for.
