The battle between Assassins and Templars rekindle again as Assassin's Creed Origins is now live on all major platforms. But PC gamers, as always, can expect discount and incentives for early purchase. If the one-year hiatus has you itching for some Assassin's Creed action, discounts for the digital Uplay key is available for 19% off.
Given Uplay is required no matter if you're adding the game library on Steam, all the deals you'll find for Assassin's Creed Origins are being sold as Uplay key. While the pre-order bonus "Secrets of the First Pyramids" mission is no longer being offered - it looks certain to become available later as a nomial DLC unlock.

If you splurge for the Deluxe Pack, you'll receive the Ambush at Sea mission, the Desert Cobra pack, and 3 ability points. Stepping up to the pricey Gold Edition gets you everything in Deluxe plus the Season Pass - granting you access to all major future content expansions. We think simply paying for the Standard Edition will be ideal - but again if you're a hardcore Assassin's Creed fan, Gold gets you everything under the sun for Origins.
As of writing we're spotting two legitimate deals on Assassin's Creed Origins for release week, with GMG offering 19% off and GamersGate offering a smaller 11% off discount. Both are listed above and to be honest, there doesn't seem to be any advantage buying it at the lessen discounted retailer given they are both offering the same digital key. Buying the game at GamersGate only makes sense if you have store credit stashed away or have earned a good amount of "Blue Coins" (GamersGate's virtual currency and reward system for loyal customers).
Reviews are mostly on the postiive side across the web for the newly minted Assassin's Creed installment. Gaming Age pegs it a high 100, IGN gives it a favorable 90, though GameSpot is offering a more timid 70. Our suggest is the usual: catch gameplay videos on YouTube and read through reviews before you splurge if you're unsure. For big fans? Well, you're probably already parkouring through Egypt as we speak.
