We want to see your best screens from Assassin's Creed: Origins' photo mode

We love when games come with their own photo mode. Being able to pause the action, move the camera around, apply filters and effects, and take amazing screenshots without using any console cheats or external utilities means every player can feel like a professional photographer. So, we were pretty stoked to see Assassin's Creed: Origins has a nifty photo mode.

As I pointed out in my 8 things I wish I knew before playing Assassin's Creed: Origins, I spent a lot of my time taking pictures of the various NPCs and members of the livestock community I accidentally (or deliberately) knocked over with my horse. A few examples:

Beyond citizen bowling, the photo mode is also great for taking lovely shots of the amazing views and vistas the game offers, be they Egyptian ruins, Greek cities, sun-bleached deserts, or sparkling seas.

We'd love to see what you've been taking pictures of while you've been playing Assassin's Creed: Origins. And if you haven't used photo mode yet, it can be accessed by tapping the F3 key while in-game. To find your pictures, look in \Documents\Assassin's Creed Origins\photos.

Drop a link to an image of your best photo in the comments and we’ll collect the best submissions in a showcase a few days from now.  

Chris started playing PC games in the 1980s, started writing about them in the early 2000s, and (finally) started getting paid to write about them in the late 2000s. Following a few years as a regular freelancer, PC Gamer hired him in 2014, probably so he'd stop emailing them asking for more work. Chris has a love-hate relationship with survival games and an unhealthy fascination with the inner lives of NPCs. He's also a fan of offbeat simulation games, mods, and ignoring storylines in RPGs so he can make up his own.
