* LimitedSpecialCollectorsUltimateEdition: [[https://www.polygon.com/e3/2017/6/12/15786464/assassins-creed-origins-collectors-editions The Dawn of the Creed Legendary Collector’s Edition]] of the game costs [[CrackIsCheaper $800]], and includes a 29 inch statue of Bayek, Bayek’s amulet, two steelbooks, lithographs, art cards, art book, soundtrack, a printed version of the in-game map, and the deluxe edition of ''Origins''. It's so large that people who order it get parts of it now and the rest of it when the game releases. ''Pretty Good Gaming'' worked out that it would cost less to fly to Egypt and buy a pair of daggers than buy this edition of the game.

* NamesTheSame: If you've played ''VideoGame/MassEffectAndromeda'', it can become a tad difficult to keep a straight face every time Aya has any screentime since she shares her name with an important hub planet in the former game.

Added DiffLines:

* SequelInAnotherMedium: The Titan Comics-published ''Assassin's Creed: Origins'' four-part comic mini-series details the fall of Cleopatra 14 years after ''Origins''.

* ThrowItIn: The ability to change Bayek's hair and beard with a button combo was originally [[https://www.reddit.com/r/assassinscreed/comments/79xdy4/ubisoft_rep_confirms_that_there_is_no_way_toggle/ a dev tool left in the game]]. After seeing positive feedback, they added visible hair and beard toggle icons to the gear screen.


* NamesTheSame: If you've played ''VideoGame/MassEffectAndromeda'', it can become a tad difficult to keep a straight face every time Aya has any screentime since she shares her name with one of the primary planets in the former game. That ''ME:A'''s Aya is a pretty blatant {{Expy}} of [[Film/{{Avatar}} Pandora]] (which is the polar opposite to the desert setting of ''Origin'') doesn't exactly help.

Added DiffLines:

* PlayingAgainstType: Tristan D. Lalla previously played Adewale, a blunt, honest and honourable Assassin in ''Black Flag''. Here he plays Taharqa who is much more self-aggrandizing [[spoiler: and eventually outright villainous]].

Added DiffLines:

* DoingItForTheArt: The hieroglyphs used in the game's marketing materials were not only historically accurate to the time period represented in the game, but have ''[[https://www.polygon.com/2017/10/16/16483082/assassins-creed-origins-heiroglyph-translation actual meanings]]'' behind them too.

Added DiffLines:

* AllStarCast: The Japanese version features Creator/JunFukuyama, Creator/MiyukiSawashiro, Creator/AtsukoTanaka, Creator/SoraAmamiya, Creator/HochuOtsuka, Creator/TetsuyaKakihara and Creator/ShowHayami in the lead roles.
