The upcoming Assassin’s Creed Origins game is certainly causing some shockwaves throughout the community, with its interesting gameplay, setting and characters. Now, Ubisoft has revealed two major DLC packs as well as additional smaller ones, some of which are free.
The two new major pieces of DLC will be called The Hidden Ones and The Curse of the Pharaohs. The Hidden Ones is set years after the game’s storyline where you fight against the Romans in a new area, which is set for a January 2018 release.
The Curse of the Pharaohs on the other hand will take place in a mystical realm where you will investigate a mysterious curse that has brought dead Pharaohs back to life, as well as encountering mythical beasts such as Anubis Warriors, giant scorpions and many more. The Curse of the Pharaohs will be set for a March 2018 release and both of these DLC packs will be included in the season pass, which will also grant you with new outfits, weapons and 500 in-game credits.
As well as the two major DLC packs, Ubisoft has announced that other DLC will be available to download for free. One such DLC, titled The Trials of the Gods will be in the form of a special event which pits the player going up against various Egyptian Gods. Taking place as special timed events, the players will take part in what is described as epic boss battles, with victorious players receiving prestigious rewards. The DLC event will be released 15 days after the October 27th launch and will be available for free.
As well as The Trials of the Gods, Ubisoft has also announced an array of new features, including a Photo Mode, which will let the players capture the beauty of the game, as well as The Nomad’s Bazaar which is a wandering merchant who will give the players daily quests. Both are available with the launch of the game.
Two other features called Horde Mode and Discovery Tour have been announced as well with both of them set to be released in early 2018. Horde Mode will pit the players against waves of enemies in the Gladiator Arena allowing them to rank their scores against others, while Discovery Tour is more of a leisurely look at the history of Egypt turning the game into a living museum.
The announcement of these new features has no doubt created a new surge of excitement for the fans and with only 2 weeks to go until it is released on October 27, the hype is certainly intensifying with each and every day.
