One of the things we’re excited for most is to see our talented community cosplayers take on the newest Assassin, Bayek!
To help you create the perfect cosplay, we’ve put together a guide that will give you every detail you need to know from the color to the material of Bayek’s clothing, armor, and weapons.
We know our cosplayers love the little details so we asked 3D character modeler behind Bayek on the Assassin’s Creed Dev Team, Alexandre Troufanov, to point out some his favorite features.
“The shoulder plate gives Bayek a powerfully charismatic appearance and makes his silhouette more badass! In addition to that, it is one of the elements that the player will have the opportunity to change and we’ve made some really cool designs that expand on this one.”
“The scarf creates a distinct silhouette for Bayek. It is both visually interesting, as well as being practical and coherent with the environment of the game.”
“The piece of orange fabric adds a visual punch to Bayek’s outfit, but also adds some mystery to his character given how distinct it is from the rest of his garments.
The reason why he’s wearing this intricately patterned cloth is not that it’s a conventional accessory of his position, but rather that it gives more context to Bayek as a character that the player will be able to explore in the game.”
“The fur on his left arm (under the leather shoulder armor) is lion fur! It’s pretty thin but puffier on the edges with a good amount of weathering on it.”
