Assassin's Creed Origins in terms of combat has shifted from a paired animation system to Hitbox system which means the player needs to consider multiple things before engaging in a combat situation. Some of the things the player needs to take note of during an encounter are his and his enemy's weapon loadout, the speed of his weapon, spacing, and much more. 
 
Assassin's Creed: Origins which is considered to be a prequel to the entire series could be the most improved as well in terms of overall gameplay. Check out the Codex below for more information and stay tuned for more gaming news and updates.
