Assassin's Creed: Origins's Playable Characters Include Bayek's Wife

This means everyone's wearing Assassin costumes, and that's right that means Assassin outfits for the entire party.

The developers have revealed that protagonist Bayek's wife, Aya, will be playable for particular missions, though her involvement will not be as pronounced as the deuteragonistic relationship between the Frye siblings in 2015's Assassin's Creed: Syndicate.

Origins Game Director Ashraf Ismail said, "This collaboration is the result of being huge fans".

This shift is just one of many for the game, which is attempting to reinvent the mainline Assassin's Creed series, after 2016 was the first year without a new entry since 2009.

When reached for comment, Ubisoft had nothing to announce regarding whether Final Fantasy content could be coming to Assassin's Creed Origins. There's a lot of respect between the two teams and we couldn't be more thrilled with the opportunity to pay homage to each other's work.

Discussions on this collaboration began almost three years ago at the Tokyo Game Show, and Easter eggs referencing this partnership were included in the FFXV trailer from November 2016, the Assassin's Creed Origins announcement trailer, and the Origins gamescom trailer.

Starting on Thursday, August 31st, 2017 until Wednesday, January 31st, 2018 Final Fantasy XV players will have access to this timed-event, which will feature gameplay elements from Ubisoft's action-adventure franchise.

The new downloadable content is the first Final Fantasy XV content pack to feature crossover content from another video games franchise.

Players will be rewarded with a different Assassin's Creed inspired outfit called the Medjay Assassin's Robes, as well as unlocking new abilities for Noctis that will let him fight and explore like an assassin.

Since Assassin's Creed Origins has yet to release, no details were offered as to what players can expect from this collaboration in Origins itself.
