Assassin’s Creed Origins: Desert Oath Available Now

Assassin’s Creed Origins is still a few weeks from its October 27 release, but fans eager to delve into Bayek’s story can start by exploring his past in Assassin’s Creed Origins – Desert Oath, a prequel by veteran Assassin’s Creed novelist Oliver Bowden. Set in 70 BCE, years before the events of the game, the novel follows a teenage Bayek as he leaves his village of Siwa in search of his missing father, who left the village abruptly and without explanation.

As Bayek travels along the Nile and discovers the larger world outside Siwa, his quest for answers leads him to another mystery: Someone is methodically hunting and killing off the Medjay. With Egypt in turmoil and his order’s ranks growing thin, Bayek will need to rely on his friends – including his future wife, Aya – to survive long enough to unravel the conspiracy.

Published by Ubisoft, Assassin’s Creed Origins – Desert Oath is now available in paperback and digital formats. Assassin’s Creed Origins will be available on Xbox One, PS4, and PC on October 27; for more, check out our previous Assassin’s Creed coverage.

Any coverage regarding the modding event is greatly appreciated. I personally can’t wait until someone makes a sewer level with a clown chasing the player. The way the Mod Kit is setup allows modders to create whole new levels, puzzles, and use the self-learning AI.  To give a simple example, I made a level that has a lot of doors. Built like a labyrinth puzzle. I made he Neighbor spawn in the map via a trigger set to one of he doors. Since he AI is programmed to notice and investigatte map changes, he quickly picked up my trail and followed my footsteps. From that point onwards the level plays like an anxiety inducing chase.  Note that as of today, mods can be played via the Unreal Editor. Some time next week we will release an updated Beta 3 build that allows mods to be played in the standalone game.  Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

Take It to the Track: Autonomous Vehicle Demos Roll Through GTC Europe

Against a backdrop of Bavaria’s fall foliage, autonomous vehicles are driving on the test track at GTC Europe in Munich.

Deutsche Post DHL is demonstrating its “last mile” autonomous delivery. On Tuesday, NVIDIA announced that DPDHL, the world’s largest mail and logistics company, and ZF, one of the world’s largest automotive suppliers, have partnered to deploy a test fleet of autonomous delivery trucks, starting in 2018.

DPDHL will outfit electric light trucks with the ZF ProAI self-driving system, based on NVIDIA DRIVE PX technology, for automating package transportation and delivery. The autonomous capabilities will include the last mile of deliveries — taking packages from a central point to their final destinations. It’s the most complex and costliest aspect of courier and e-commerce deliveries.

To demonstrate this capability, DPDHL brought two StreetScooter electric delivery vehicles to GTC Europe. They’re equipped with multiple sensors, including cameras, lidars and radars. On the GTC test track, attendees experience how the vehicles use AI to understand the environment, plan a safe path forward and proceed along a selected route.

Nearby, Virtual Vehicle’s Automated Drive Demonstrator takes visitors on autonomous rides. This summer, Virtual Vehicle — an R&D center working on vehicles of the future — became the first organization to test an autonomous car on public roads in Austria.

Their research platform uses DRIVE PX to recognize safe driving space, and detect objects and lane markings. The goal of this self-driving project is to create an open platform for partners, who can add their own sensors and driving algorithms to customize an autonomous vehicle’s capabilities.

Representing racing enthusiasts, three Formula Student Teams joined the demonstrations. KA RaceIng, Greenteam Stuttgart and Schanzer Racing each brought their small, formula-style autonomous cars to the event. The teams designed and built their DRIVE PX-powered autonomous cars as part of the international Formula Student competitions. Visitors watched as the KA RaceIng car navigated the track without a driver.

The vehicles displayed around the conference, and those demonstrating autonomous driving capabilities on the track, give GTC Europe visitors a first look at the self-driving technology of tomorrow.
