Ubisoft has announced release dates for the first three Assassin’s Creed Origins DLC expansions.
The first expansion – The Hidden Ones – will launch on January 23, 2018, and continues the story of the Brotherhood four years after the events of Assassin’s Creed Origins. The campaign takes players to the new Sinai region, and increases the level cap to 45. Also included are four new Legendary weapons, some new threads, two new mounts, and various new weapons.
The release builds upon the game’s 1.2.0 update, which was released earlier today.
Following on February 20, 2018 is Discovery Tour by Assassin’s Creed: Ancient Egypt. The game’s new educational mode aims to take players – and non-players – on a tour of ancient Egyptian life. The expansion features a free roam mode, plus guided tours curated by real-life historians and Egyptologists. Discovery Tour will be available as a free update for all owners of the game, and also available as a separate purchase on Uplay and Steam for Windows PC.
Finally, The Curse of the Pharaohs will be released on March 6, 2018. This second piece of paid DLC features a new storyline centred on an ancient curse plaguing the Thebes region. Whereas Discovery Mode is focussed on historical accuracy, The Curse of the Pharaohs pits players against famous pharaohs and beasts from Egyptian mythology. As well as additional gear and outfits, the level cap receives another bump, taking it to 55.
The Hidden Ones and The Curse of the Pharaohs will be available to all season pass owners, or for individual purchase.
