Assassin’s Creed Origins – “I am” trailer, and a look behind the scenes

Today, Ubisoft unveils the “I am” live-action trailer, which plays a part in the UK television and cinema advertising campaign for Assassin’s Creed Origins.

Shot on film, with hundreds of extras (both human and animal) and amazing props and costumes – set to the strains of Nicholas Britell’s stirring “The Middle of the World” – the trailer brings Bayek’s world to life.

Now I really fancy a pomegranate.
