Assassin's Creedgalt has not been most innovative game series in recent years. But as far as reconstruction of historical sites was concerned, advantages developers regularly put into spotlight: The Storm on Bastille, Dasviktorianische London and War of independence in US, all wurdemithilfe of historians comparatively accurately remodelled. In new part Assassin's Creed Origins, which appears EndeOktober, players tour ancient Egypt. And if you want to explore this world as an assassin without even backstab one opponent, in can do it next year.
Then, after all, with Discovery Tour, a furr game appears, again developer Ubisoft recently announced. The players Erhaltenzusätzliche historical information about venues and events, such as pyramids or mummies. You can also explore entire game world without any restrictions or dangers. Say: Without opponents who want you andie linen dresses. There is also a dynamic adjustment of level of difficulty in game itself.
John Walker, founder of game portal rock, paper, shotgun, Feiertdiese decision. He goes even a step furr and asks DieGamesentwickler to give players more often opportunity to skip opponents undgerade Sogenanntenboss Fightseinfach.

Games follow in most cases capitalist structures, players must "earn", end. Be it by being better than Diecomputergesteuerten or or human opponents by solving gutwirtschaften or puzzles and tasks.

However, many video games now work on levels that are based on principles and supposed principles of ir Genreshinausgehen. The virtual worlds of Skyrim, The Witcher, GTA, Zelda or even Assassin's Creed are an experience being. Their exploration takes place alongside story, side missions and ZufälligenGefechten. Even in ego shooters, from classic half-life to new brutal doom, re are often moments when no opponents and tasks are waiting for experience to be most intense.
