First 32 minutes of this second re-run of the important side quests – A Dream of Ashes in Memphis in the Assassin’s Creed Origins gameplay on PlayStation 4 (PS4). Always a joyful recording this gameplay on the second run 4 years later. Thoughts about this side quests which in my opinion is worth doing as explained below.
Playing through A Dream of Ashes, one of all side quests in Memphis, Bayek explores three different areas in this village to collect all three amulets to be handed to the adventurer, begger and philanderer. Doing side quest at night is probably more advantageous to stealth takedown the enemies since Bayek could be in camouflage mode easily.
First, he explores the Great temple, a couple of blocks away after talking to the Seer, residing somewhere in a small, cozy and compact village house. As soon as Bayek leaves the place of where the Seers resides, running and climbing on buildings covered by old red solid bricks, walking on tight ropes at a quicker pace, and eventually faces a beautiful Omorfi Villa, covered by trees on a soothing night which are surrounded by the Roman guards. Oh did I forget, we have to stay under their shadows and takedown in stealth so not to alert the entire place.
Next, Bayek dives deep into the Memphis Underground in the middle of A Dream of Ashes side quests. Being aware of the Roman guards patrolling and positioning in the underground while in stealth mode, crouching and performing stealth takedown is absolute essential to this side mission.
Travelling to the Eastern Districts is the farthest in one of many side quests. Seeking answers of A Dream of Ashes, following up from Bayek’s previous dream in the main quest gameplay, by collecting the final three amulets to be handed to the adventurer, begger and philanderer. Climbing and parkouring from one building to another was a joyful experience and brings back that old school feeling of playing the Assassin’s Creed series.
Had much fun for this part of the side quests in Memphis! Taking down the Roman guards using assassination from behind and above the building was epic! Battle of against the crocodiles while swimming in the river relives the glorious wildlife scenes in the Assassin’s Creed Origins. Smooth and seamless gameplay with a press of a button to assassinate one enemy to the other via chain assassination.
Powerful vision from Senu, the female eagle, looking out for targets eases Bayek’s side quests to find those three amulets to be handed to the adventurer, begger and philanderer eventually. Learning so much from Senu’s observation helps gaining useful information to find the targeted NPCs in A Dream of Ashes side quest, locations for hunting those crafting gears for weapons and armor upgrades and treasure loots.
Once again, hats-off to Sarah Schachner’s team for another blinding original game soundtrack! The soundtracks fits well, reliving the vibes of Memphis in Egypt at night time. Enforcing critical moments when the Roman guards are nearby while Bayek in hiding brings the goosebumps out of me! Blending the original themes of the Assassin’s Creed Origins as a group behind the shadows and the exotic beauty of Egypt were unquestionably profound.
Always a joyful and memorable experience of playing that first 32 minutes of the Assassin’s Creed Origins side quests – A Dream of Ashes! Appreciate your time for reading this article and stay up-to-date with my latest blog posts at https://heiky11.blogspot.com/
