Ubisoft has released a new live-action trailer to promote Assassin’s Creed: Origins, which shows off some of the ways the player character can assassinate their targets in ancient Egypt.

Mindhunter season 2 will focus on the Atlanta child murders, according to showrunner David Fincher. The 10-part Netflix series only made its debut last Friday, but has already raked in high praise for breathing new life into the crowded field of procedurals.

The show is based on Mind Hunter: Inside the FBI’s Elite Serial Crime Unit, a 1995 book by John E. Douglas, a pioneering FBI agent credited as one of the first profilers within the agency. Over the course of his career, he interviewed some …
