Assassin's Creed Origins and Far Cry 5 to be playable at Armageddon Expo

12 Oct 2017

Ubisoft has announced that the upcoming Assassin's Creed Origins and Far Cry 5 will be playable later this month at the Armageddon Expo.

The Auckland Armageddon Expo is the first time the New Zealand public will be able to play both of these games. The best thing about Assassin's Creed Origins is the fact that it will be playable on the Xbox One X console. 

Show goers will be able to see the game running in stunning 4K. This is a great chance for Kiwi gamers to also play on the Xbox One X before its launch on November 7th, 2017. 

Far Cry 5 isn't out until early 2018, but you will be able to play it later this month on the PS4 Pro console at Armageddon. Much like other games in the series, it will be an open-world FPS. 

The Auckland Armageddon Expo is happening at the ASB Showgrounds on October 20th until October 23rd. Tickets to the event are available now.
