Ubisoft announced that The Hidden Ones, the first DLC for Assassin’s Creed Origins, will launch on the 23rd of January. Ubisoft also revealed release dates for upcoming Assassin’s Creed Origins post-launch content, including season pass content and free add-on content, available to all players.
Available for $9.99, The Hidden Ones is a story-driven expansion that builds upon the growth of the Brotherhood, taking players four years after the events of Assassin’s Creed Origins, as they clash with an occupying Roman force in a new region of the world, the Sinai. This expansion will increase the level cap to 45, allowing players to continue to upgrade and customise their character. Players will have access to four new Legendary weapons, a new outfit, two new mounts and multiple new weapons, as well as two new levels for all crafted gear.
On the 20th of February a free update for all Assassin's Creed Origins owners will be released. This update adds Discovery Tour, a new educational mode of the game that lets everyone choose between free roaming the beautiful world of Ancient Egypt to learn more about its history and daily life, or embarking on guided tours curated by historians and Egyptologists. People can discover and explore a world free of conflict, time pressure or gameplay constraints, where storyline and quests are not active and the world of Ancient Egypt evolves into a combat-free living museum.
Finally, on the 6th of March will see the release of The Curse of the Pharaohs, the second paid DLC for Assassin's Creed Origins. This new expansion offers players a completely new storyline to delve into as they travel to Thebes to investigate an ancient curse that is plaguing the region. The Curse of the Pharaohs focuses on Egyptian mythology, pitting players against famous pharaohs and Egyptian beasts, as they investigate the cause of the curse that has brought the dead pharaohs back to life. This new piece of content will increase the level cap to 55 and give players access to new outfits and gear, including rare and legendary weapons, all themed around classic Egyptian mythology. The Curse of the Pharaohs DLC will be available for $19.99.
Additionally, a wide variety of free content, including Trials of the Gods and a new quest, Incoming Threat; a prelude to DLC 1 The Hidden Ones, in which players must head-off an incoming incursion and find where its coming from, will be available for all Assassin’s Creed Origins players.
Assassin's Creed Origins is out now for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
