Ubisoft will host an Assassin’s Creed Origins ‘Time Travel’ Photo Exhibition in London. The free entry exhibit will feature a range of photos taken by four of the UK’s leading Instagram travel photographers done in Assassin's Creed's Egypt.

Ubisof just 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 using the game's Photo Mode. 

The exhibition will feature a range of photos taken by four of the UK’s leading Instagram travel photographers. The four photographers were challenged by Ubisoft to capture a photo that answers the question: "If you were able to travel back to Ancient Egypt, what picture would you post?". Granted the people there don't sacrifice you to the gods the minute you show up and whip out your iPhone. That was in the fine print, I am petty.

The four contributing photographers are @tschang, @zobolondon, @ari55, and @femsta. The photographers were challenged to capture two in-game shots that they felt would best reflect their personal style. The resulting 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 10:00 am - 17:00 pm on Friday 03 November 2017.

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

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, 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 Xbox One, PlayStation 4 Pro, PlayStation 4 and PC. Xbox One X version is set to launch on 07 November. Assassin's Creed Origins will be getting its first DLC pack in January.
