Revealed: 7 eye tracking features in Assassin’s Creed ® Origins ⚔

Assassin’s Creed® Origins’ official release date will be on October 27, and as we previously announced, it will feature Tobii Eye Tracking. We are now ready to reveal some of the eye tracking features that will be included.

It will have some of our long standing features in the Assassin’s Creed franchise, such as Extended View, Aim at Gaze and Enemy Tagging, but it also includes some new features that are adapted to the game.

Assassin’s Creed® Origins will take place in ancient Egypt, which means you’ll be surrounded by beautiful landscapes and architecture to discover while fighting against dangerous factions and beasts.

Eye tracking features in Assassin’s Creed® Origins

 

1. Extended view 🏞

2. Aim at gaze 🎯

When engaging in battles and you take aim the game knows more about your intentions based on where you’re looking. Your aim will move in the direction you’re looking rather than assuming what you want to hit is in the center of your screen.

3. Enemy tagging 🔴

Before engaging in a battle, you might want to tag your enemies. Enabling eye tracking for this action will let the game know when you’ve seen each enemy and it’ll automatically tag the enemies you’re aiming at or the ones you have spotted with Senu.

4. Interaction at gaze 💰

When you’re picking up loot, you can interact with loot objects by just looking at them. The game will know what loot object you’re interested in and will make it active.

5. Lock target at gaze 🔒

When facing your enemies, you can pick your target with your eyes when you press lock on to target. Imagine standing in front of multiple enemies and you press the key to lock on to target. The game will then lock on to the target you’re looking at rather than picking the enemy closest to you or the center of the camera.

6. Dynamic light adaptation 😎

The light within the game will adjust accordingly to make sure what you’re focusing on will be visible and clear.

Hi, I am a technical support engineer and content manager for help material, which means I get to help everyone who uses our eye trackers — mostly gamers — through our community. I am a gamer myself, so when people get stuck, I feel their pain. I also love sharing how we are finding or creating innovative tools to use our eye trackers within gaming and hope to inspire others to experience it for themselves.
