The game presents a series of playable novelties never before seen in the saga as the interaction of animals with their environment and the protagonist, and a new system of combat completely redesigned. In a recent interview with GamingBolt, Ashraf Ismail, director of Assassin’s Creed: Origins, reveals the character of Bayek, the protagonist of the game. It is a personification of ancient Egypt.
Bayek is a wizard, an ancient warrior who mastered different styles of fighting. But they were also compassionate with the Egyptians. The people of Egypt used to ask for help, and they lent it to them. Bayek himself shows sympathy for the Egyptians, but he does not trust foreigners. He believes in rituals and old politics, but faces ghosts of the past.
Ismail considers Bayek to be the physical representation of ancient Egypt. “If you represent Egypt, what does he need to do or become when his world is dying, when a new world arrives, and what must you do to survive in this new world? This trip is Bayek’s journey and climaxes with the creation of the Brotherhood.”
Also, he added that Bayek is a very emotional person, he shows compassion and sympathy for people, but at the same time, he is strong. It’s like a guardian. “If things go well, he’s happy and laughs.”
