Ubisoft has announced the first two DLC’s for Assassin’s Creed: Origins; the first of the two, The Hidden Ones, set to be released in less than a week. Players can continue their journey through Ancient Egypt with a wide variety of content, including several hours of new storyline expansions and quests, timed events and customisation items.
In Assassin’s Creed Origins: The Hidden Ones, players will be taken 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 customize 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.
Ubisoft has also announced The Curse of the Pharaohs, the second DLC available for the game. This is set to be 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. Aside from the DLC, Ubisoft has also announced Discovery Tour by Assassin’s Creed: Ancient Egypt. According to the developers, this is an educational mode of the game lets everyone, from players to history-enthusiasts and non-gamers, 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.
Assassin’s Creed Origins: The Hidden Ones is set to be released on January 23, with The Curse of the Pharaohs being released on March 6.
