Update 1.2.0 for Assassin’s Creed origins adds new regions to support upcoming expansions, plus general fixes and tweaks to the main game.
Assassin’s Creed Origins has been a bit of a return to form for Ubisoft’s most milked cow. It’s not quite Ezio in his pomp or the innovation of Black Flag, but Josh found it to be “an oasis in the desert” compared to the series’ recent history.
Version 1.2.0 of Assassin’s Creed Origins is available to download today. The headline items are the addition of two new areas – Sinai and the Valley of Kings – and “added support for the ‘The Hidden Ones’ expansion”.
Quite what “added support” means is unclear at this point. Given the DLC’s focus on conflict with the Roman Empire and a new quest titled ‘Incoming Threat’ in update 1.2.0 – and the January 2018 release window for said DLC – it may well be setting players up for an imminent release.
Here are some other details from the patch notes for Assassin’s Creed Origins 1.2.0, over on the Ubisoft forums:
