ASSASSIN’S CREED ® ORIGINS ‘TIME TRAVEL’ PHOTOGRAPHY EXHIBITION COMING THIS FRIDAY TO LONDON

RENOWNED INSTAGRAM PHOTOGRAPHERS BRING ANCIENT EGYPT TO LIFE IN THE HEART OF LONDON

p>London, UK – 1ST November 2017 – Today, Ubisoft® has announced the launch of the official Assassin’s Creed® Origins ‘Time Travel’ Photography Exhibition - a one-day-only photography exhibition displaying visual stills captured directly from the latest instalment in the franchise. The exhibition will feature a range of stunning photos captured using the much-acclaimed in-game Photo Mode tool and taken by four of the UK’s leading Instagram travel photographers, who were posed a challenge by Ubisoft: ‘If you were able to travel back to Ancient Egypt, what picture would you post?’

Chosen for their striking and varied portfolios, the four contributing photographers are @tschang (101,000 followers), @zobolondon (82,900 followers), @ari55 (48,100 followers), and @femsta (17,300 followers) ,with each having been challenged to capture two in-game shots that they felt would best reflect their personal style. Using the latest in video-capture technology, together with the in-built Photo Mode tool, the native 4K images have been transferred from the game into print for public display at the exhibition.

Available to the public and free for all attendees, the ACO ‘Time Travel’ Exhibition will be open from 10:00am - 17:00pm on Friday 3rd November 2017.

Location: Hospital Club, 24 Endell St, WC2H 9HQ

The photo mode in Assassin's Creed Origins allows players to capture the most majestic photos directly from the game by simply pressing a button and without leaving the game itself – with the freedom of moving the camera around and zooming in and out on their desired shot. The mode also provides players with 17 different filters to make their photos even more visually compelling.

Sam Conisbee, Digital Manager at Ubisoft UK, said: “Since the announcement of Assassin’s Creed Origins back at E3 2017, we knew that fans would be very excited by the beauty, diversity and endless vistas that Ancient Egypt had to offer. The ACO ‘Time Travel’ photo exhibition is the perfect way to celebrate the launch of game and showcase some of the most beautiful in-game pictures ever captured from a videogame. It’s been an absolute pleasure working with four of the most talented travel photographers, and they’ve truly brought Assassin’s Creed Origins to life through this exhibition.”

Zoë Timmers (@zobolondon), one of the Instagram Travel Photographers selected to contribute to the exhibition, said: “For me, this was a really fun and very different project to work on. As a travel photographer, I’m used to visiting incredible real-world locations and getting the best out of them, so it’s testament to the game itself that I’ve been able to apply the same eye for beautiful vistas and gorgeous locations to capture a place from a time-gone-by so intimately.”

Assassin’s Creed Origins is available now for the Xbox One video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®4 Pro computer entertainment system, PlayStation®4 and Windows PC, and on Xbox One X at its launch on November 7th, 2017.
