Assassin’s Creed Origins gets official cheat mode on PC

Do you want to be like Neo from the Matrix? Maybe you just miss video game cheat codes from olden days? Either way, you’ll be able to hack Assassin’s Creed Origins on PC later this month via a new customisation interface.

The “Animus Control Panel” will let you fiddle with 75 game options – from changing the game’s main character, to finer attributes such as giving you unlimited health, increased speed and improved senses.

Want six tamed animals following you around? No problem. Want to swim like Aquaman underwater? That’s fine too.

You can also make things harder for yourself, if you wish – and even turn off the ability to assassinate people in one strike.

Assassin’s Creed Oranges owners will be able to save a set of parameters and share them with others to try out, too.

The disappointing thing? Being built into the PC Uplay client, the control panel will only be available on PC for the foreseeable future.
